Re: PERKINS, Jesse b. about 1808

In Reply to: PERKINS, Jesse b. about 1808 by Roger Perkins of 1195

Jesse Perkins (husband of Mariah Williams) was Surety for the marriage of Lodowick Williams and Shady Lockhart on 31 Jul 1834 in Rutherford County, TN. I speculate that Jesse was his son-in-law and for this reason he was surety for the marriage. This is a solid lead to begin developing a relationship between Mariah and Lodowick Williams.

Lodowick and his first wife were both age 50-60 in the 1830 census of Rutherford County, TN. In the 1840 census he again gave his age as 50-60 and the female in the home was age 30-40. This female appears to be Shady Lockhart. She was probably his second wife and many years his junior. His first wife was probably the mother of Mariah.

A sibling of Mariah could be Samuel M. Williams, who married Lucretia Lockhart on 18 Feb 1835 in Rutherford County, TN. He was age 30-40 and lived next door to Lodowick in 1840. He appears to be his son.

There was also a younger fellow named Loderick Williams who married Nancy Green on 7 Jul 1843 in Rutherford County, TN. He could be the male age 5-10 in Lodowick's household in the 1830 census, but this is just a guess based on the similarity of names.

I hope this helps.
