Obituary, Western Reserve Chronicle, November 16, 1870
"Jehiel Perkins one of the oldest citizens of this county, Mr. Jehiel Perkins, died at his residence in Vienna, on Saturday last, 12 inst., at the age of 89 years. He came to this county sometime previous to 1810, and carried the mail from Warren to Pittsburgh, during 1810, which, owing to almost the wilderness condition of the intervening country, was a tedious and trying task. Mr. Perkins served his country in the war of 1812. He has left a widow in the 82d year of her age."
