I am looking for a male descendant of the Parmeter / Parmenter family who has a solid well documented paper trail to Deacon John Parmenter )1588-1671). After many years of research I have been unable to tie my 4th great grandfather, Jesse L. Parmeter (1770-1862) to the Deacon John Parmenter family. I have a living male 2nd cousin with an unbroken line that is willing to do DNA testing if we can find someone who would qualify.
Jesse L. Parmeter was born in either VT or CT. We have only one census schedule to base his birth state on.He had 8 sons who settled in Jackson Co. MI in the late 1830's, my 3rd great grandfather being one of them.
I have a copy of the database from the "Pioneering Parmenters of America" so it is likely that I have your lineage. If you are interested I will be happy to share what I have. I would also be happy to pay for the DNA test.
