hello I am looking for my husbands family of perkins.
story goes that they were in dennison precivil war. then moved out to either witchata falls or denton.
but the last farm that anyone knew about was a farm in Jacksboro.
Jack's Dad went to this farm in 1980's when he visited from CA. but we all think that most of the relations lived around denison tx . supposedly the family was in texas pre civil war and had owned slaves at one time.
all we have on the family names is just this

JOhn " Jack"Michael Perkins( my hubby)
SO> Donald Perkins
SO >James Foreman Perkins ( married Ollie carter)
SO > Hardin Perkins ( mother or wife was Anna cotton)

( hardin had brothers John thomas Perkins , and Frank Powell. Hardin had sons Harvey and Hardin also that stayed in TX also. and that My jack had a cousin " Jack " also a son of harvey or hardin.
the oldest hardin frank and john and they all died in LA CA we beleive. but they were born in TX.
anyone have any ideas who these perkins might be?
