I located a site with more information on this family:

These Perrins are from the William Perrin & Mary Baber line:

I have extensive information on the Perrin family.  My husband and I went to Kentucky some years ago not knowing all the places where they had lived or their homes in Virginia.  We found the very old homestead of Charles, son of John.  We found the family cemetery and made pictures of the tombstones and the fields around the cemetery.  The family was wealthy for that period in time, lots of land and slaves.  Charles married Catherine Jameson whose father fought in the Revolutionary War.  After Charles and Catherine died most of the sons sold out and came to Texas looking for more land at cheaper prices.  One of the sons was a doctor.  And another son, my great-great-grandfather also practiced medicine but not full time as his brother.  I have made a direct line of my relation to the Perrins.  I have their brothers, sisters, wives and husbands etc.  but will only send my line at the moment.  If you are interested, I can send the other, but it will take a while to copy.  Also enclosed are some of the resources where I got my information.

2.  Charles b. 1765 d. 1838 and Catherine Jameson b. 1772 d. 1844

I have copies of old wills, land sales from the 1830s and 1840s.  Checked with the Texas Parks and Wildlife about getting the Perrin Cemetery in Logan County, Ky cleaned up.  They said they or the state of Ky would if it had been his grandparents, but not anyone that is a great grandparent, guess there would be too many cemeteries to clean.  Just wanted to try something anyway.  It is not fenced and one of the tombstones has been taken, Catherine Jameson Perrin.  A distant cousin has a picture of it but when we were there it had been taken and there were some scratches on one of the old stones
