The family history descended from Nicholas Parchman was composed by my in 1976 and sent out to cousins who have circulated it to other relatives. The tree has been updated frequently since 1976 and is now nearly complete. I plan to publish the Parchman family history in 2006. I have dozens of boxes of docunents from archives, relatives, libraries, and the internet. I have been collaborating with 3 cousins in Texas and we have most of the family from 1750 up to 1930 now in place. We hope to include as much historical information about the family as possible. I hope also to deposit the collection of documents in some genealogy library. Since the original immigrant Nicholas is first found in Virginia as part of Col George Washington's militea during the French and Indian War, and then in the area around Fort Pitt (Pittsburgh) after the war, I plan to make copies for libraries in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Jim Clay was descended from Nicholas'son Philip, who first settled in Robertson County, TN about 1787. His brother (my ancestor) John settled in Stewart County, TN. Philip's children went on to Mississippi and Texas.
