My mom Katherine Perkins and her sister Marcella Perkins Grant started this Family Reunion back in 1986. First one was at Carlyle Lake. We have it every two years. In 2010 after my aunt passed away we had 236 members to attend. We are a family of 8 generations with 5 living. Katherine Perkins is the last of the original Perkins from Cape Girardeau Mo. Katherine Perkins is 86 yrs old. Members are passing and new babies are being born.
