Lokking for Parrots France/England/Virginia/Tennessee/Ohio/Kansas

Journal by danametzler

Fredrick Parrot came from Alsace-Lorraine,France . I have other imformation( I don't know if it's reliable or not,) that they stopped in England for awhile. He settled in Toms Brook, Shanandoah Co.,Va.with his wife Barbara Edwards. He had seven sons who fought in the Revolution.One of his sons named John was given land for his services in the war. They moved to this land, wich is now Parrotsville, Cocke County. John was born around 1740.His first wife is unknown, They had a son named John Jr. also called" Smoking Johnnie" who was born around1773.He later married Louise Bean.John jr.married Elizabeth Hall b. Mar.1772. They had a son named John "Blackbearded John", who married Mary Copeland b. Nov 15 in Surry, North Carolina. They moved to Fayette, Ohio at some time Where my Great Great Great Grandfather, Jacob Hussey Washington Parrot was born. There my Great Great Grandmother Mary Jane Parrot was born.She married Jacob Carder and they moved to Whiting, Kansas.All my family on that side have black hair and dark skin and slightly slanted eyes . I think we could have some Indian blood. I've seen other people on other message boards say this same thing,but I have found nothing about the bloodline other than their French heritage. I would love to know if anyone has any more imformation about this family, Thankyou.

Dear danametzler, Hi. A warm welcome to FamilyTreeCircles.

Ok, PARROT doesn't sound like a common surname to me so it should stand out when you are researching it.

The first accesible Census records for England started in 1841. As your PARROTs appear before then, only a search of parish records would suffice.

Sometimes when researching our family trees - the stories are just that ... plain stories. It is up to us to separate fact from fiction. Surprisingly some of the stories have a grain of truth!

DNA sampling is also a factor in determining origins. If you do go down this path, make sure you do your homework first!

For starters with genealogy generally, try this ... The Surname Navigator. This link is the most powerful genealogy search engine that I know of. Give it a whirl ... type in PARROT, then click on a country, then press search.

Good luck and let us know how you get on. Make sure you work backwards in your tree from yourself so you don't go off on wild goose chases.

Share your known information back here at familytreecircles, making sure you respect the privacy of the living by not disclosing on the internet their full dates of birth/location etc.

Kind regards,
Alison downunder.

My Gradmother in law Lina Mae Edgington Maiden name was Parrot. It was said that she had some Native American blood in her but I could not be sure she passed away before I got a chance to know her. She was origally from Muppetsburrough Tennesee If I am not mistaken.
