Genealogy of the Perrin family from one Thomas Perrin, who lived in Hebron, Conn., 1721.

We have no date of the death of Elizabeth Williams Perrin, the mother of the children above. Thomas Perrin, second, married the third time, Martha Seavey. He removed from Hebron, Conn., to Granville, N. Y., 1770, where he died 1820.

One of his wives, the second being the mother of three pair of twins Ephraim in this particular is the most illustrious of our branch of the family.

Thomas Perrin, third, removed in the year 1791 from Granville, N. Y. to Brantford, Ont., Canada, afterwards to Mount Pleasant, five miles south, and there he died, and was buried in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery. When 15 years of age I remember seeing and reading the inscription on his tomb stone:
