Michael:James Parman was in Augusta Co. VA in 1752.He was "theoretically" born in England 1728.There are two separate documentations of this. 1) 5-21-1752 Augusta Co. VA court records Order Book No. 3 p 257 as "proving his importation direct from Great Britain). and 2) "Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in VA" page 51 reads: "James Parman proves importation direct from Great Britain".I don't have any evidence of anyone being somewhere in 1727.I do have a notation that Giles Parman was born in Chester Co. PA 1732 and married 1) Mary Dodson and 2) Phebe Woolsey.I can't find any documentation of Giles (1737) in PA or anywhere else.I know the second wife is wrong, Phoebe Woodlsey married my Giles after the death of his first wife, Elizabeth Penn.Because of this, I tend to throw out (in my mind) the entire Giles 1737 theory.I believe I picked this up from some family history at the LDS.I tend to be very skeptical of the family histories you get from there, anyway.
I still feel James was the immigrant, can't prove it, and my Giles was his son, but can't actually prove that either.Therefore, I start my tree with Giles Franklyn Parman (1758)and keep picking away at who might be his ancestors.
