If you can't go straight up the family tree, try branches. I looked at Nash Forum and found someone who is working on Thomas Nash and Sarah Perkins #1723. Maybe descendants in that family will know something about the Perkins line, too.

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- -- Type in Nash, Thomas, spouse Sarah Perkins. There are some working on that line, but they don't have parents of Sarah listed. You could share, maybe they'll add it to their posts and something might come of others searching for your line.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
