Another pioneer family were the Perrines, after whom the settlement on the Franklin road west of Henderson was called Perrine's Corners. William Perrine located there about the beginning of the century, and the family have been represented in this and in Sandy Lake township since that date. Perrine was established as a post office in February, 1833, William H. Perrine being the first postmaster, and other members of the family holding the official honor for many years. [1]
