After Debbie's Death Francis Married Celia ????

People say Francis Parents are 3 different People, trying to sift out the Facts

Some say:

Option 1:
Francis L. Parrish

Birth 1756 in Charles City, Goochland, Virginia, USA
Death in Kentucky, USA
Son of Abraham Perkins Parrish & Sarah Clark

Mary Dabney

The issue with this Couple is how people are also stating that this Francis is a Girl(that Abraham Had a Female Frances & not a male Francis)

Option 2

Francis L. Parrish
Birth 07 Feb 1790 in Charles City, Charles, VA, USA
Death 1828 in Nelson, Kentucky, USA
Parents of Francis L. Parrish: Thomas Eldridge Parrish & Mary Edwards

Barbara Lefler
Birth 23 Mar 1792 in Augusta, Virginia, USA
Death 1849

The Problem With this one is:
a. They are in the same age bracket
b. This Francis, Did not have a son on record called Francis.

Option 3
(the lds)
They say his father was Abraham Parrish

Abraham Jackson Parrish son of Abraham (son of Thomas Eldridge Parrish)is too young, his father is old enough, but no records found to confirm or deny.

Abraham Perkins Parrish also had a son called Abraham.

But I found all the records for this a lds to be in error, where they stated the family to be didn't exist at the time they were a live & the dates & information was incorrect. So the Abraham solution seems fabricated.

so far the best option is 1, they are the age of the person, and some sites site Francis L. Parrish as the father of Francis D. Parrish, but apart from sites stating it, there is no current proof, & there is the issue of them stating on other sites that he is female.

Francis D. Parish (1795 - 1882)
is my 4th great grandfather
Elihue Parrish (1836 - 1920)
son of Francis D. Parish
Thomas Parrish (1884 - 1911) & Mary E. Miller
son of Elihue Parrish
Ronald E Parrish (1907 - 1984)
son of Thomas Parrish
A. C. Parrish (1930 - 2012)
daughter of Ronald E Parrish
M. E. Cassel (1952 - Living)
son of A. C. Parrish

Francis D. Parish (1795 - 1882)
is your 4th great grandfather
John W. Parish (1824-1886)
son of Francis D. Parish        
Samuel Albert Parrish (1844-1919)
son of John W. Parish
Charles E. Parrish (1874-1942)& Mary E. Miller
My 2nd great grandfather
Ronald E Parrish (1907 - 1984)
step-son of Charles E. Parrish

Tommy & Charles are cousins & Marry the same woman.

Thomas Parrish Marries Mary E. Miller, they have 3 Children:
Ronald, Lucille and Ralph. Charles Elmer Parrish Marries Mary R Powell, she is sick & barren, they had 0 Children.
After the death of both spouses, Tommy's cousin Charles E. Parrish marries Mary E. Miller-Parrish & have at least 5 more children: Henry Albert Parrish, Charles William Parrish, Andrew Parrish, Evaline Parrish, & Frank Parrish.

Still researching this line, if anyone has some info & can help, I would love to hear from them.

This line focuses on the Parrish, but it encompasses the, Edwards, Miller, Allen, Beaman, Braham, Defore, Smith, Moore, Keller, Holley, Peoples, Pollard, Fleener, Herlong, Laymon, Cline, Abernathy, Varnado, Dozier lines & Maybe Dabney, & Holland lines.

Sharing what I have found.. :D
