My great grandfather was David Clingman Parris. According to the delayed bith certificate of his daughter, Maria Cantrell Parris Upchurch, he was born in Cherokee, SC in 1854. He died in either 1906 or 1908. He was a MD who practiced in Hillsboro ( Hillsborough)NC, his wife's home town. I believe that he attended medical school at UNC in Chapel Hill.
This is pretty much all I know about him and am hoping to trace his line if possible. Thanks in advance for any help!
