Newspaper article -- The Cecil Whig, Elkton, Cecil County, Maryland, Saturday, May 10, 1884:

Town Election.

The annual town election took place on Monday last, when a bailiff and a new board of town commissioners were elected. There was no contest over the commissioners ticket. Ten names were selected at the town meeting last week, and from this list five commissioners were chosen. The following is the vote:

William J. Jones, 212, W. E. K. Frazer, 169, C. C. Strickland, 167; Dunbar Morgan, 166; George R. Howard, 165; George McQuilkin, 156; John Perkins, 97; Charles H. Smith, 96; Henry Wood, 88 and Henry C. Wells, 26. The first five named it will be seen were elected.

William J. Jones, Esq., receiving the highest vote, will have the honor of acting as mayor of the town for the current year. Mr. H. C. Wells declined to serve and was therefore voted for by but a few.

The interest of the election centered in the vote for town bailiff. For this office there were three candidates, viz: George t. King, Richard Thomas and Cadmus Price. The vote counted out as follows: King, 140; Thomas, 128 and Price 23, electing Mr. George T. King by twelve votes. The total vote polled was 291, exactly the same number cast at the last town election. There was considerable drunkenness and two or three fights during the afternoon.

Funeral of Mr. Perkins.

The large concourse of friends and acquaintances which assembled at the Methodist Episcopal Church, on Monday, to pay their last tribute of respect to the memory of John Perkins, attested the esteem in which he was held in this community. The hour of the funeral services had been fixed at 2 o'clock, but before that hour every available seat in the church was occupied. At half past two o'clock, the remains were borne into the edifice by Samuel J. Keyes, Dr. Thomas A. Worrell, John W. Anthony, Jacob Rambo, George McQuilkin, William A.
Wright, Henry M. Warner and Henry Evans, followed by the immediate family of the deceased, and a large representation of Union Lodge No. 48 A. F. and A. M., of which Mr. Perkins had been an active and influential member. The services were opened with a hymn announced by the Rev. Charles Hill, pastor of the church, after which the Scripture lesson was read by the Rev. I. G. Fosnocht, pastor of the Chesapeake City M. E. Church. Rev. Charles Hill delivered the forcible address upon the life and character of the deceased, after which the Rev. J. P. Otis, now of Bridgeville, Del., but recently a pastor of the Elkton church, paid an eloquent and touching tribute to the memory of his late brother and friend. Both addresses were marked by feeling and power, and during their delivery, many tearful eyes in the audience indicated the impressiveness of the service. After the service an opportunity was given the audience to view the familiar features of the deceased, after which the funeral cortege passed from the church to the Elkton Cemetery where the remains were deposited in their final earthly resting place. A number of handsome floral emblems were displayed as tributes of the Masonic order and others, and a number of business places on Main street were closed as the funeral cortege passed to the church, the attendance there being among the largest ever witnessed on a similar occasion.

He was buried in November 1891 at Methodist Episcopal Church Cemetery, Elkton, Cecil Co., MD, Findagrave #71585373.
