Riley Perkins was born Jan. 1853 in Rhode Island and is listed in the 1870 Census of Richland county Wisconsin in the household of William and Margaret Perkins. Riley was married to Matilda Monger/Munger in Missouri and they lived there and in Kansas prior to moving to Richland county Wisconsin 1897/8. The family is listed in the 1900 census for Richland county...but by 1920 were in Rusk county Wisconsin. The 1930 Census shows wife Matilda aged 68 as a widow in Rusk county with children James Perkins 27 and Gladys Perkins aged 23. Other children that I know of were: Albert, Arthur and Cora all born in Missouri between 1885 and 1890; May Perkins born 1895 in Kansas and Clarence Perkins born 1898 in Wisconsin.
I feel that both Riley and Matilda died in Rusk county, Wisconsin....but may be buried at their old home at Willow in Richland county, Wisconsin. We are related to Matildas' side of the family and I can add a lot of history on that line. I do know that one of Riley Perkins' brothers was named Philander Perkins and seems to have remained in Richland county, Wisconsin.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated.
