The information I have is that James Clay Parchman was the second child of Christopher Clay Parchman (b. 1826) and Margaret Adeline Dillingham (b. abt. 1832). I have an interesting family history of the descendants of Nicholas Parchman that my father sent me, but I do not know how accurate it may be-the sources are not cited.
