Cleveland to Youngstown 

Almost 90 years ago, the union of Thornton Perkins Sr. and Mary Howard was the beginning of the Howard-Perkins branch of our family tree.  To keep the family strong, in 1968 they started the tradition of celebrating family by inviting family members together from all over for family picnics in Youngstown, Ohio.  In several months we will be celebrating the 38th HPMC Family Reunion in Cleveland, Ohio.  It is only fitting that in 2018 we commemorate our humble beginnings by celebrating 50 years of togetherness with a picnic in Youngstown, Ohio where it all started. So please, join us as we celebrate this momentous occasion.

Did you know that Youngstown literally means "Young’s Town." It was founded by John Young who was born in 1763 in Peterborough, New Hampshire. After marrying Mary Stone White in 1792, she and John moved to Ohio in 1796. It was in 1797 that John began the settlement of Youngstown, purchasing a township of 15,560 acres from the Connecticut Land Company for $16,085.16.  The establishment of the city was recorded in 1802.
