ISAAC PERKINS and his brother in law, Otis Foster, from Winthrop, were the first occupants of back lots No.
14 and 14, east side, and were associated in making improvements and erecting buildings. Mr. Foster, however, soon
left town - perhaps returning to Winthrop. He was the son of Timothy and Abigail (Allen) Foster, and was born May
8, 1773. He married Lucy Norris, and had a daughter, Phebe, born Sept. 18, 1800. Mr. Perkins subsequently removed
to river lot No. 6, east side, where the remainder of his life was spent. In religious faith he was a Free Will
Baptist, and a man of devoted piety, always contributing liberally to the support of religious institutions. His
first wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Timothy Foster, and his second wife was Rebecca Johnson. His children were:
Nabby, Isaac, Betsey, Timothy Foster, Mary Foster, Jonathan, Samuel Dalton, Sumner, Dennis, and George.
