I am new to this list and this is my first attempt to locate my PARSONS family travels from Loudoun County, VA to Belmont County, OH.All I have found thus far are limited references that they immigrated from Loudoun County to Barnesville, Belmont County Ohio some time in the early 1800s.Jonathan PARSONS was listed in the Belmont County Census for 1820.Can anyone help me?Any information concerning any possible leads would be gratefully appreciated.I have included the first two generations of this line.Thanks
