Gail, I checked my records to see if I could tell you who S and J Perrin were. The names would most likely be John and Samuel. These are popular Perrin names. I am sure that they are related to my Perrins. Carolyn Britten can possibly tell you. Her email address is
As to the Perrin plot, it is located behind and to the right of Mount Herman church. It is a fairly large plot. There are unmarked graves. I know that my gggrandfather Patrick Henry Perrin and his wife Ann Jane Tyler are buried there as well as my ggrandfather Felix [Marcelus Fielding] Perrin and his wife Frances Ann Smith. Also many other Perrins. They are listed in the book of family graves. Felix`s brother John Henry Perrin is buried there also.
I do have a Samuel L. Perrin who died in 1863. He was the son of my ggggrandfather Joseph Perrin and his second wife Judith Tyler. Samuel was born in 1832 and died in 1863. He would have been Patrick Henry Perrin`s 1/2 brother.
