I am researching the Perkey family of Wythe Co, VA, ca 1800-forward. The first Perkey on record in Wythe Co is Daniel, who appears on the 1800 tax list with 5 white male tithes. Daniel died in 1820/21; wife Catherine (maiden name unknown) died in early 1822; however, the final estate settlement of Daniel Perkey was not recorded until 1844 (Wythe Co will book 6, 11 Mar 1844). Although Daniel only cited 4 of his children by name in his will, according to the final estate settlement, Daniel and Catherine Perkey had 8 children in all: John; Jacob; Christian/Christly; Solomon, who m. Peggy Lambert and moved to AR ca 1850s; Mary, who m. Jacob Kitts; Margaret/Peggy, who m. a Newman; Barbara, who m. a Wolf; and Molly, who may have never married. Anyone interested in this family is asked to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org -- thanks!
