!IDENTITY: Older published genealogies suggest that the Elizabeth who married Jacob Perkins might be named Elizabeth Lovell. Email from Carol Barrett (undisclosed at example dot net) to the Whipple Website (14 Jan 2000) states the following:

  1. From the Dawes/Gates Genealogy, Vol. 1 (Dawes), p. 486, footnote regarding Elizabeth -----, 1st wife of Jacob Perkins: "[Elizabeth] Called Lovell, daughter of Thomas, and may have been so." The Dawes/Gates genealogy, although a secondary source, is generally very reliable, and is only tentative on Elizabeth's identity as Elizabeth Lovell.
  2. From Perkins, George A., M. D., The Family of John Perkins of Ipswich, Massachusetts. 3 Vols. Part III: Descendants of Sargeant Jacob Perkins. Salem, MA: Printed for the auther by the Salem Press Publishing Co., 1889, p. 5: "Jacob Perkins was married about 1647 or 8, as his oldest child, Elizabeth, was born in 1649. The name of his wife was Elizabeth -----. She died Feb. 12, 1665, as is recorded in the family bible. We are left in ignorance of her surname. In Part I of this book it was hinted that her father's name might have been Whipple, but further search shows it to be a mistake, and we are still left in uncertainty. Thomas Lovell ... mentions in his will a "daughter Elizabeth Perkins". When Serg. Jacob Perkins gave to his two sons, Jacob and Matthew, deeds of gift of land at the time of their marriage, we find on each deed the name of Thomas Lovell as a witness; his name often occurs in connection with this family, which certainly looks as though there might be some near relationship between the two families, but this needs confirmation."

This is a puzzling problem. Gary Boyd Roberts, whom you cite as one of your sources for the marriage of Jacob Perkins and Elizabeth Whipple, is certainly a highly respected genealogist who doesn't seem likely to make a mistake. (Further circumstantial evidence in support of Elizabeth Whipple as the wife of Jacob Perkins is the naming of their children: the oldest son is John (Jacob's father's name), the 2nd son is Jacob, and the 3rd son is Matthew (after Elizabeth's father?). They had no son named Thomas, and the name Matthew is not found among Jacob Perkins' siblings, nor was it the name of his grandfather.) I'm not familiar with the Henry Burdette Whipple source, but its relatively recent publication date suggests that he may have found info that George Perkins didn't have in 1889.
