Biography of Franklin R. Perkins


Perkins, Franklin R., Buffalo, was born in Cazenovia, Madison county, N. Y., May 6, 1841, where he received his education at the district schools and the Oneida Conference Seminary at Cazenovia. In 1862 he began the study of law in the office of Charles Stebbins, jr., where he remained until he was admitted to the bar at Binghamton, N. Y., in the fall of 1863. At this time the Rebellion had broken outand there was a call for volunteers. Mr. Perkins received a commission from Governor Seymour to raise a company for the 22d Regiment of N. Y. Volunteer Cavalry, then being organized at Syracuse and Rochester. A company of one hundred and four men was raised, which became Co.E, with Mr. Perkinsas captain, where he served for one year. In the spring of 1865 he returned to Hamilton, N. Y., and entered the law office of Judge Joseph Mason, where he remained upwards of a year. In 1866 he removed to Buffalo and began the practice of his profession. In 1869 he entered into copartnership with Henry W. Bex, and the firm of Bex & Perkins conducted a successful business for eleven years, when it was dissolved. Since that time Mr. Perkins has conducted a general practice of law at Buffalo, part of the time with a partner, but generally alone, and has always done a successful business, which still continues.
