PERKINS,John b.1796 Woodstock,VT
Perkins,John b.15 Jul 1796 at Woodstock,Windsor Co.,VT, son of William & Martha "Patty" Perkins. Left Woodstock,VT with
his parents in ca. 1805 to Stanstead,Quebec,Canada. Looking for his wife, children and where he settled.
You might try the UVM library. They have a huge Canadian collection- indexes to gazeteers, newspapers, census, genealogies, etc.
There also is an Canadian Studies Center across the road.

Not sure where you are located, but I'm sure the catalog is on-line, at least.

Re: PERKINS,John b.1796 Woodstock,VT
I am desc. from their daughter Mary "Polly" Perkins, who I believe married Robert Marsh in Woodstock around 1816, minister was Walter Chapin. Joseph Marsh of Crown Point I believe is their son. Joseph Marsh married Ann Chapin (prob. 2nd wife), and they raised a family in Crown Point. Their daughter Eliza Marsh married Carlos Whitney. He was b. in Vt. but grew up in Dunham, Quebec. He was an Adirondack Guide in the 1860-80's.
I am looking for info. on this Perkins/Marsh/Chapin/Whitney connection--I would love to collaborate if possible.
