I am the eldest grandchild of William and Janet. I knew my great grandfather Herman, and was told a little bit of James Washington Parrish and Emma Timberlake by Herman and William Parrish.

There are only two males of my generation (cousins)in our branch and all the previous generation were females. I believe my son and his cousin are the only males left in the line of William Parrish. I would consider my son being tested.
Please add me to any e-mail listing for the Parrish Family.
