Kathleen: Sorry to report the bad news but Parrish did not receive land for Revolutionary War service. His record shows that he deserted in Georgia. You can check the Georgia Rev. War records and read the entry in the muster roll for him.
I saw in a county history in Tennessee where Parrish is referred to as a veteran of the Rev. War. Nice but the facts are not included.
Currently I believe he is a DNA match to several of us who have roots in North Carolina and Georgia.
