Rev. Jonas PERKINS was a young man of remarkable ingenuity and mechanical talent. Old Capt Thomas Thompson, the next neighbor of his father, who made spinning wheels, large and small, for cotton and flax, for all the country around about Bridgewater, used often to tell, that when "Jonas was just out of petticoats, all the little brooks near his father's house run all sorts of mills, and all sorts of gear were attached to innumerable wind mills, which buzzed so loud that no one could sleep on a windy night." His father thought his son wasted too much time, but when he believed that this "perpetual motion was sure to succeed" he gave up to the boy to operate as much as he pleased.

In 1804 he invented a power loom In 1806 he wove his mother towels by only turning a crank His inventions were the wonder of everyone in the vicinity of his home. In 1807, when about to leave home, he packed his machinery in a barrel, making his mother promise not to show it to anyone. Not long after, two very polite gentlemen rode up in a nice chaise, and over persuaded her to show them the proofs of her son's genius She finally consented and they spent nearly two hours in looking it over. Years after, when she told the circumstances to her son, she said that at the time "she thought it took them a good while."

When in college, which he entered as a sophomore in 1810, he had called on Mr. SLATER, the great manufacturer at Pawtacket, and talked with him about the importance of such a loom. After some conversation, during which Mr. SLATER asked him where he lived and the names of his parents, Mr. PERKINS began to declare that he had accomplished the feat, and invented a power loom; whereupon Mr. SLATER drew himself up to his full height and said, "Do you think you, a little Yankee, can do what all England has been trying to do for centuries?" Upon this the young man felt insulted and left. Whether Mr. SLATER or some other man sent emissaries to discover the secret of the invention is not known, but Mr. PERKINS always said that the first power loom he saw in operation "had some clumsy and homely attachments, he had on his only because he had not the materials or means to employ any others; which he esteemed as proof that the looms he saw were patterned directly from his. He never applied for any patent, because the country was in such a confused condition, and he had determined to fit himself for a preacher of the gospel.

Jonas married Lorena Marilla WALKER on 3 Jul 1872 in Norwalk, Huron, Ohio.
