Perkins II(DD-377: dp. 2,300 (f.); 1. 341'3"; b. 34'8"; dr. 17'; s. 35 k.;cpl. 204; a. 4 5", 12 21" tt., 2 dct.; cl. Mahan)The second Perkins (DD-377) was laid down 15 November 1934 at the Puget Sound Navy Yard, Puget Sound, Wash., launched 31 December 1935; sponsored by Mrs. Larz Anderson; and commissioned 18 September 1936, Lt. Comdr. Samuel P. Jenkins in command.Assigned first to Destroyers, Scouting Force then to Destroyers, Battle Force, Perkins was homeported at San Diego and operated in the easternPacific prior to World War II. At Mare Island for overhaul, 7 December 1941, she reported for convoy escort duty on the 15th and on the 17th was enroute to Pearl Harbor. By 15 January 1942 she was back at Mare Island for the installation of new radar equipment and on the 25th she returned to Hawaii.On 2 February she departed Pearl Harbor with Chtcago for the southwestPacific. On the 14th she joined Australian, New Zealand and other U.S. ships in the ANZAC Squadron then charged with protecting the eastern approaches to Australia and New Zealand. Through the spring, she continued operations with that squadron, steaming at times with fastcarrier forces as they plied the Coral Sea to strike at enemy enerosehments, escorting refueling units to rendezvous areas and screening larger ships of her own and combines forces as they blasted enemy positions from New Guinea to the Solomons.On 1-2 May, the squadron joined with TF 11 and TF 17 then screened the carriers of those forces as their planes struck at Tulagi to open the Battle of the Coral Sea. Detached on the 7th, the squadron steamed to the Louisiade Archipelago to intercept a Japanese amphibious attack on Port Moresby via the Jomard Passage. That afternoon the ships were attacked by land based planes and in driving them off contributed to the diverting of the Japanese force, thus accomplishing the mission without engaging the enemy ships and setting the stage for the final action of the Battle of the Coral Sea—the carrier battle on 8 May.As the carrier forces fought to a draw, the ANZAC squadron continued to patrol to the southeast of Papua. On the 10th the squadron headed for Australia and for almost two months Perkins escorted convoys and patrolled off harbor entrances along that country's Coral and Tasman Sea coasts. On 11 July she sailed for Auckland, thence to Noumea. Convoy escort duty between Suva and New Caledonia followed and in mid-August she was forced back to New Zealand for propeller repairs. On the 20th, however, she sailed for Pearl Harbor where repairs were completed and additional radar equipment and 40mm. guns were installed.In mid-November Perkins headed west again, arriving at Espiritu Santo on the 27th. Three days later she departed Segond Channel in R.Adm. Wright's cruiser destroyer force to intercept and destroy enemy forces attempting to reinforec their units Oll Guadalcanal. At 2315, 5 radar eontsets were made and a few minutes later the Battle of Tassafaronga was engaged. Perkins loosed 8 torpedoes, scoring none, then turned her guns on the beach. Undamaged in the encounter she turned toward Tulagi to assist the burning Pensacola while Maury went to assist JVew Orleans. Continuing operations from Tulagi, she bombarded the Guadaloanal coast and served on escort assignments until January 1943. A brief availability at Noumea followed and by the 13th she was back at Tulagi for further escort and support missions.At the end of April Perkins joined TF 10 for tactical training and in May she returned to Australia to join the forces gathering for the thrust up the New Guinca coast to gain eontrol of the Huon Peninsula. Into the summer the base at Milne Bay grew. At the end of June, Allied amphibious forces moved into Nassau Bay, just south of Salamaua, and into the Tobriands. Infantry units pressed toward Salamaua—Australians from Wau in the foothills of the Owen Stanley Range andAmericans from Nassau Bay. PT boats punched at the enemy's Finsehhafen—Lae supply line and A.A.F. and R.A.A.F. planes bombed and strafed Japanese installations as far as Wewak and Madang.On 21 August Perkins, flagstup of DesRon 5, led Smith Conyngham, and Mahan out of Milne Bay to make a sweep of Huon Gulf then bombard Finsehhafen. On the night of 22-23 August they accomplished their mission and brought naval gunfire back to the New Guinea campaign after its absence through 18 months of ground fighting.On 4 September Perkins bombarded the coast between the Bulu and Buso rivers, then covered Allied soldiers as they streamed ashore at Red Beach and headed toward Lae. On the 8th, she trained her guns on the isolated garrison at Lae and on the 15th the last remnants of that garrison pulled out. Salamaua, dependent on Lae, had already fallen and on the 16th Allied forces marched into Lae.Finsehhafen fell 2 October, the scouring of the river valleys commenced, and the increase in Allied traffic in Huon Gu1f, together with the presence of Japanese submarines, brought Perkins back to escort duty. Reinforcements were escorted to Langemak Bay and to Scarlet Beach east of Satelberg. In November escort duties continued. Then, on the 28th, she departed Milne Bay for Buna, steaming independently. Shortly before 0200 on the 29th a dark image emerged from the blackness and a few minutes later the lLustralian troopship Duntroon rammed her on the portside, amidships. Splitting in two, Perkins went down and took four of her erew with her to a watery grave approximately 2 miles off Ipoteto island.Perkins earned 4 battle stars during World War II.

Operational history

Assigned first to Destroyers, Scouting Force then to Destroyers, Battle Force, Perkins was homeported at San Diego, California and operated in the eastern Pacific prior to World War II. At Mare Island Naval Shipyard for overhaul, 7 December 1941, she reported for convoy escort duty on the 15th and on the 17th was en route to Pearl Harbor. By 15 January 1942 she was back at Mare Island for the installation of new radar equipment and on the 25th she returned to Hawaii.

On 2 February she departed Pearl Harbor with Chicago, for the southwest Pacific. On the 14th she joined Australian, New Zealand and other U.S. ships in the ANZAC Squadron then charged with protecting the eastern approaches to Australia and New Zealand. Through the spring, she continued operations with that squadron, steaming at times with fast carrier forces as they plied the Coral Sea to strike at enemy encroachments, escorting refueling units to rendezvous areas, and screening larger ships of her own and combines forces as they blasted enemy positions from New Guinea to the Solomon Islands.

On 1–2 May, the squadron joined with TF㺋 and TF㺑, then screened the carriers of those forces as their planes struck at Tulagi to open the Battle of the Coral Sea. Detached on the 7th, the squadron steamed to the Louisiade Archipelago to intercept a Japanese amphibious attack on Port Moresby via the Jomard Passage. That afternoon the ships were attacked by land based planes and in driving them off contributed to the diverting of the Japanese force, thus accomplishing the mission without engaging the enemy ships and setting the stage for the final action of the Battle of the Coral Sea—the carrier battle on 8 May.

As the carrier forces fought to a draw, the ANZAC squadron continued to patrol to the southeast of Papua. On the 10th the squadron headed for Australia and for almost two months Perkins escorted convoys and patrolled off harbor entrances along that country's Coral and Tasman Sea coasts. During this time, Perkins was one of several major Allied vessels in Sydney Harbour during the Japanese midget submarine attack of 31 May 1942. [ 1 ]

On 11 July she sailed for Auckland, thence to Noumea. Convoy escort duty between Suva and New Caledonia followed and in mid-August she was forced back to New Zealand for propeller repairs. On the 20th, however, she sailed for Pearl Harbor where repairs were completed and additional radar equipment and 40 mm guns were installed.

In mid-November Perkins headed west again, arriving at Espiritu Santo on the 27th. Three days later she departed Segond Channel in Rear Admiral Carleton Wright's cruiser-destroyer force to intercept and destroy enemy forces attempting to reinforce their units on Guadalcanal. At 2315, 5 radar contacts were made and a few minutes later the Battle of Tassafaronga was engaged. Perkins loosed 8 torpedoes, scoring none, then turned her guns on the beach. Undamaged in the encounter she turned toward Tulagi to assist the burning Pensacola, while Maury went to assist New Orleans. Continuing operations from Tulagi, she bombarded the Guadalcanal coast and served on escort assignments until January 1943. A brief availability at Noumea followed and by the 13th she was back at Tulagi for further escort and support missions.

At the end of April Perkins joined TF㺊 for tactical training and in May she returned to Australia to join the forces gathering for the thrust up the New Guinea coast to gain control of the Huon Peninsula. Into the summer the base at Milne Bay grew. At the end of June, Allied amphibious forces moved into Nassau Bay, just south of Salamaua, and into the Trobriands. Infantry units pressed toward Salamaua-Australians from Wau in the foothills of the Owen Stanley Range and Americans from Nassau Bay. PT boats punched at the enemy's Finschhafen-Lae supply line and AAF and RAAF planes bombed and strafed Japanese installations as far as Wewak and Madang.

On 21 August Perkins, flagship of DesRon 5, led Smith, Conyngham, and Mahan out of Milne Bay to make a sweep of Huon Gulf then bombard Finschhafen. On the night of 22–23 August they accomplished their mission and brought naval gunfire back to the New Guinea campaign after its absence through 18 months of ground fighting.

On 4 September Perkins bombarded the coast between the Bulu and Buso rivers, then covered Allied soldiers as they streamed ashore at Red Beach and headed toward Lae. On the 8th, she trained her guns on the isolated garrison at Lae and on the 15th the last remnants of that garrison pulled out. Salamaua, dependent on Lae, had already fallen and on the 16th Allied forces marched into Lae.

Finschhafen fell 2 October, the scouring of the river valleys commenced, and the increase in Allied traffic in Huon Gulf, together with the presence of Japanese submarines, brought Perkins back to escort duty. Reinforcements were escorted to Langemak Bay and to Scarlet Beach east of Satelberg. In November escort duties continued. Then, on 28 November 1943, she departed Milne Bay for Buna, steaming independently. Shortly before 0200 on the 29th a dark image emerged from the blackness and a few minutes later the Australian troopship Duntroon rammed her on the portside, amidships. Splitting in two, Perkins went down and took four of her crew with her to a watery grave approximately 2 miles off Ipoteto Island.

Silver Star citation [ edit | edit source ]

The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Lieutenant Commander Gerald Lyle Ketchum (NSN: 0-70240), United States Navy, for gallantry and intrepidity in action against the enemy. While Commanding Officer of the Destroyer U.S.S. PERKINS (DD-377), on 22 September 1943, during an operation in which his ship was assigned to screen a convoy of landing craft, he assisted in meeting, repelling and destroying a vicious enemy air attack launched by ten torpedo planes. He quickly and efficiently brought his ship into action, taking station between the planes and the defenseless convoy, and while being heavily strafed, simultaneously avoided two torpedoes by skillful maneuvering, kept all batteries in action, shot down one torpedo plane, and assisted in the destruction of another. His actions and conduct were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

Perkins được đặt lườn vào ngày 15 tháng 11 năm 1934 tại Xưởng hải quân Puget Sound, Bremerton, Washington. Nó được hạ thủy vào ngày 31 tháng 12 năm 1935, được đỡ đầu bởi bà Larz Anderson và được đưa ra hoạt động vào ngày 18 tháng 9 năm 1936 dưới quyền chỉ huy của Hạm trưởng, Thiếu tá Hải quân Samuel P. Jenkins.

Được phân về Hải đội Khu trục trực thuộc Lực lượng Tuần tiễu, và sau đó sang Hải đội Khu trục trực thuộc 'Lực lượng Chiến trận, Perkins đặt cảng nhà tại San Diego, California và hoạt động tại khu vực Đông Thái Bình Dương trước Thế Chiến II. Khi Hải quân Nhật bất ngờ tấn công Trân Châu Cảng vào ngày 7 tháng 12 năm 1941, Perkins đang được đại tu tại Xưởng hải quân Mare Island nó nhận nhiệm vụ hộ tống vận tải vào ngày 15 tháng 12, và đã lên đường đi Trân Châu Cảng vào ngày 17 tháng 12. Đến ngày 15 tháng 1 năm 1942, nó quay trở lại Xưởng hải quân Mare Island để được trang bị một dàn radar mới, và đến ngày 25 tháng 1 đã quay trở lại Hawaii.

Perkins rời Trân Châu Cảng vào ngày 2 tháng 2 cùng tàu tuần dương hạng nặng USS Chicago (CA-29) để đi đến khu vực Tây Nam Thái Bình Dương. Đến ngày 14 tháng 2, nó gia nhập cùng các tàu chiến Australia, New Zealand và Hoa Kỳ khác thuộc Hải đội ANZAC đang làm nhiệm vụ bảo vệ các tuyến đường hàng hải tiếp cận Australia và New Zealand từ phía Đông. Trong suốt mùa Xuân, nó tiếp tục hoạt động cùng đơn vị này, thỉnh thoảng di chuyển cùng lực lượng tàu sân bay nhanh khi chúng băng ngang biển Coral tấn công các căn cứ của đối phương, hộ tống các tàu chở dầu đến điểm hẹn tiếp tế, cũng như hộ tống các tàu chiến lớn thuộc lực lượng kết hợp khi chúng bắn phá các vị trí trú đóng đối phương trải từ New Guinea cho đến quần đảo Solomon.

Vào ngày 1-2 tháng 5, hải đội gia nhập cùng các lực lượng đặc nhiệm 11 và 17, lúc này đang hộ tống các tàu sân bay tung ra cuộc không kích xuống Tulagi mở màn trận chiến biển Coral. Được cho tách ra vào ngày 7 tháng 5, hải đội di chuyển về phía quần đảo Louisiade để đánh chặn một lực lượng đổ bộ Nhật Bản đang hướng đến Port Moresby ngang qua eo biển Jomard. Xế trưa hôm đó, các con tàu bị máy bay đối phương đặt căn cứ trên đất liền tấn công, và qua việc đánh đuổi chúng đã góp phần làm phân tán lực lượng Nhật Bản. Chúng hoàn thành nhiệm vụ mà không đối đầu với tàu đối phương, đặt tiền đề cho cuộc đụng độ chính giữa hai lực lượng tàu sân bay đối đầu vào ngày 8 tháng 5.

Khi các lực lượng tàu sân bay rút lui, Hải đội ANZAC tiếp tục tuần tra về phía Đông Nam Papua New Guinea. Vào ngày 10 tháng 5, đơn vị lên đường quay trở về Australia, và trong gần hai tháng tiếp theo sau, Perkins hộ tống các đoàn tàu vận tải cũng như tuần tra các lối ra vào cảng dọc theo bờ biển Coral và biển Tasman của nước này. Vào lúc này, nó là một trong số các tàu Đồng Minh đã hiện diện trong cảng Sydney vào lúc diễn ra cuộc Tấn công cảng Sydney của tàu ngầm bỏ túi Nhật vào ngày 31 tháng 5 năm 1942. [4] Vào ngày 11 tháng 7, Perkins lên đường đi Auckland, và sau đó đến Nouméa. Nó làm nhiệm vụ hộ tống vận tải giữa Suva và New Caledonia, và đến giữa tháng 8 bị buộc phải quay trở lại New Zealand để sửa chữa chân vịt. Vào ngày 20 tháng 8, nó lên đường đi Trân Châu Cảng để hoàn tất việc sửa chữa cũng như để bổ sung radar và pháo Bofors 40 mm.

Vào giữa tháng 11, Perkins lại hướng sang phía Tây, đi đến Espiritu Santo vào ngày 27 tháng 11. Ba ngày sau, nó rời eo biển Segond trong thành phần lực lượng tuần dương-khu trục dưới quyền Chuẩn đô đốc Carleton Wright để đánh chặn một hải đội đối phương đang tìm cách tăng viện lực lượng trú đóng tại Guadalcanal. Lúc 23 giờ 15 phút, năm mục tiêu bị phát hiện trên màn hình radar, và sau vài phút Trận Tassafaronga nổ ra. Perkins đã phóng tám quả ngư lôi, rồi hướng các khẩu pháo của nó vào bãi biển. Không bị hư hại sau trận chiến, nó hướng đến Tulagi để trợ giúp cho tàu tuần dương hạng nặng Pensacola đang bốc cháy, trong khi tàu khu trục Maury trợ giúp cho chiếc New Orleans. Tiếp tục hoạt động từ Tulagi, nó bắn phá bờ biển Guadalcanal và phục vụ hộ tống vận tải cho đến tháng 1 năm 1943. Sau một chặng nghỉ ngắn tại Nouméa, nó quay trở lại Tulagi vào ngày 13 tháng 1, tiếp nối các nhiệm vụ hộ tống và hỗ trợ.

Vào cuối tháng 4, Perkins gia nhập Lực lượng Đặc nhiệm 10 để huấn luyện chiến thuật, và đến tháng 5, nó quay trở lại Australia tham gia lực lượng được tập trung cho cuộc tấn công dọc theo bờ biển New Guinea nhằm kiểm soát bán đảo Huon. Vào cuối tháng 6, lực lượng đổ bộ Đồng Minh di chuyển vào vịnh Nassau về phía Nam Salamaua, và đi vào Trobriands. Vào ngày 21 tháng 8, trong vai trò soái hạm của Đội khu trục 5, nó dẫn đầu các tàu khu trục Smith, ConynghamMahan rời vịnh Milne để càn quét vịnh Huon rồi bắn phá Finschhafen. Trong đêm 22-23 tháng 8, họ hoàn tất nhiệm vụ.

Vào ngày 4 tháng 9, Perkins bắn phá bờ biển tại khu vực giữa hai con sông Bulu và Buso, rồi bảo vệ cho lực lượng Đồng Minh trên bờ khi họ đổ bộ lên bãi Rad và hướng đến Lea. Vào ngày 8 tháng 9, chiếc tàu khu trục hướng các khẩu pháo của nó vào điểm tập trung lực lượng bị cô lập tại Lea, và đến ngày 15 tháng 9, lực lượng đồn trú cuối cùng bị đẩy lui. Salamaua, phụ thuộc vào Lea, thất thủ vào ngày 16 tháng 9, và lực lượng Đồng Minh tiến quân vào Lea.

Finschhafen tiếp nối thất thủ vào ngày 2 tháng 10. Sự tăng cường di chuyển của tàu bè Đồng Minh tại vịnh Huon kết hợp với sự hiện diện của tàu ngầm Nhật Bản đã khiến Perkins phải quay trở lại nhiệm vụ hộ tống. Lực lượng tăng viện được hộ tống đến vịnh Langemak và đến bãi Scarlet về phía Đông Satelberg. Trong tháng 11, nó tiếp nối nhiệm vụ hộ tống, và vào ngày 28 tháng 11, nó rời vịnh Milne để đi Buna, di chuyển một cách độc lập. Ngay trước 02 giờ 00 ngày 29 tháng 11, trong bóng đêm đen như mực, chiếc tàu vận tải chuyển quân Australia Duntroon đã đâm vào nó bên mạn trái ở giữa tàu. Bị cắt làm đôi, Perkins đắm ở vị trí cách khoảng hai dặm ngoài khơi đảo Ipoteto, và có bốn thành viên thủy thủ đoàn thiệt mạng cùng con tàu.

Vào ngày 4 tháng 9, Perkins bắn phá bờ biển tại khu vực giữa hai con sông Bulu và Buso, rồi bảo vệ cho lực lượng Đồng Minh trên bờ khi họ đổ bộ lên bãi Red và hướng đến Lea. Vào ngày 8 tháng 9, chiếc tàu khu trục hướng các khẩu pháo của nó vào điểm tập trung lực lượng bị cô lập tại Lea, và đến ngày 15 tháng 9, lực lượng đồn trú cuối cùng bị đẩy lui. Salamaua, phụ thuộc vào Lea, thất thủ vào ngày 16 tháng 9, và lực lượng Đồng Minh tiến quân vào Lea.

Finschhafen tiếp nối thất thủ vào ngày 2 tháng 10. Sự tăng cường di chuyển của tàu bè Đồng Minh tại vịnh Huon kết hợp với sự hiện diện của tàu ngầm Nhật Bản đã khiến Perkins phải quay trở lại nhiệm vụ hộ tống. Lực lượng tăng viện được hộ tống đến vịnh Langemak và đến bãi Scarlet về phía Đông Satelberg. Trong tháng 11, nó tiếp nối nhiệm vụ hộ tống, và vào ngày 28 tháng 11, nó rời vịnh Milne để đi Buna, di chuyển một cách độc lập. Ngay trước 02 giờ 00 ngày 29 tháng 11, trong bóng đêm đen như mực, chiếc tàu vận tải chuyển quân Australia Duntroon đã đâm vào nó bên mạn trái ở giữa tàu. Bị cắt làm đôi, Perkins đắm ở vị trí cách khoảng hai dặm ngoài khơi đảo Ipoteto, và có bốn thành viên thủy thủ đoàn thiệt mạng cùng con tàu.

Perkins được tặng thưởng bốn Ngôi sao Chiến trận do thành tích phục vụ trong Chiến tranh Thế giới thứ hai.

About Jacob Perkins, II

"Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, Massachusetts," by David W. Hoyt (New England History Press, Somersworth, NH, 1981) p.284.

JACOB, Ipswich, s. of the first Jacob of the same, m. 15 Oct. 1684, Elizabeth d. of John Sparks of the same,had Jacob, b. 15 Feb. 1686 John Elizabeth 18 Mar. 1691 and perhaps ano. ch. when she d. 10 Apr. 1692. Great uncertainty occurs in the subdivis. of both these Ispwich families, as the names are too oft. repeat.

His father, Jacob, gave him a deed of land 7 Mar 1687. Thomas Lovell was a witness to his signature.

His name appears frequently upon the deeds as buying and selling land. He was a weaver and farmer, and, with his brother Matthew, carried on his father's farm when he became incapable of managing it. They administered upon the estate at his death, 1699-1700. Thomas Boreman and Nathaniel Browne were their bondsmen.

Children of Jacob Perkins and Elizabeth Sparks are:

Was his mother Elizabeth Whipple or Elizabeth Lovell?

The Lovell hypothesis depends on two things 1) Land Transfer 2) An 𠇎lizabeth Perkins” is named in Thomas Lovell’s will. Only the second would be strong evidence. But think about that. Thomas Lovell of Ipswich, MA in his will proved 2 Jan 1709/10 names wife Elizabeth and daughter Elizabeth Perkins. The Elizabeth Perkins named in Thomas Lovell's will could *not* possibly be the one that married Jacob Perkins because that Elizabeth Perkins died in 1685. That was almost a quarter of a century before Thomas Lovell’s will was proved. In my mind that proves that Elizabeth who died in 1685 was not the daughter of Thomas Lovell. Could they have been related in some way? certainly. Notice also that she had a son Mathew who was possibly named after her father Matthew Whipple. She had no son Thomas.

Won Mayoral Election

When the run-off elections took place, 2,000 more people came out to vote. In the end, Perkins received 57 percent of the votes to Smitherman's 43 percent. Smitherman's 35-year mayoral career was over. His former black constituents partied in the streets, honking horns and dancing into the wee hours of the night. In his acceptance speech quoted in the Associated Press, reprinted in Oak Ridge, Tennessee's the Oak Ridger, "Many have said and many have felt that this was about James Perkins and Joe Smitherman. That's not true. Many have said it's about black and white. That ain't so. This campaign has been about faith and fear. Faith won this campaign."

Perkins' first years as mayor were not without difficulty. Months following his election, during a march to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, marchers tried to take down a statue that honored a Confederate soldier who was also a founder of the Ku Klux Klan. Later, vandals broke into the National Voting Rights Museum, where historic photos were torn and a Ku Klux Klan hood was taken down. Moreover, Perkins was removed from a city water board post. He also lost the power to veto the City Council, something Smitherman had brought about when he began appointing black city council members. Perkins, though challenged by three opponents, including one white mayoral candidate, won re-election to a second term in 2004. As he worked to improve relations between Selma's black and white residents, as well as to bring some much needed jobs to the area, James Perkins showed himself to be an indomitable leader who used all his strength and ingenuity to complete the tasks set before him.
