Thanks for the quick reply and information. One unfortunate reality
of the period was the overuse of common or celebrated names. My George's full
name was GEORGE WASHINGTON PERKINS, b.1857 in Jefferson County, New York. He
was supposed to have been a bit of a scalawag and moved to Washington State
to get away from the bad blood in the family at home. According to my mom,
George absconded with several thousand dollars sent home by his father
Nathaniel Perkins who was a Civil War Soldier/Seaman. The reason I'm giving
you all of his is because I blundered and failed to back up my "sent mail"
box and deleted everything. I appreciate your efforts on this. As far as I
know right now, George died in the Spokane area, but I'm not hanging my hat
on one peg.
Thank you again, Bud,
