Jackson

William E. Perrine settled in Jacksonburgh in 1832, and engaged in the mercantile business, on the west side of lot twelve. He so identified himself with the interest of the village, that his name was as familiar as a household word to all the early settlers in the village or county. Mr. Perrine died in 1839, but his name is still frequently heard on the streets of Jackson. The medical profession was reinforced this year by having added to its numbers Dr. Thomas D. Fitch and Dr. George W. Gorham. The former did not long remain in Jackson, but Dr. Gorham spent the re-mainder of his life in the community, among which he at this early day. cast his lot, and acquired an eminence in his profession such as it is the fortune of few to attain. Dr. Gorham occupied a front rank as a citizen as well as a physician. His large, warm heart and genial habits made him a universal favorite with all ages and all classes of the community He was also prominent as a hunter, and there was nothing he enjoyed more than to go out with his hounds and spend several days with them in the woods on a hunting excursion.
