Note: A photocopy of two pages from a family bible was given to me by
Betty Atunes de Oliveira of Rio de Janiero, Brazil on 6 February 1998.
This record was given to Betty by Lois Elizabeth Prothro of Texas some
time before that. The bible is supposed to be the family bible record
of Henry Perkins III. The page recording Births and Deaths appears to
be torn in the original form. The copies are somewhat hard to read but
I have transcribed them verbatim to the best of my abilities. There may
be missing pages which I do not have at this time. Where possible, I have
inserted my own interpretation by the [ ] notation - Kim Curlin Wettroth.
