My gt-great grandfather, William Smith was raised by Robert Parmlee. According to family stories , Robert was his natural father as William was illegitimate. The story goes William's mother took him toRobert's house and left him when he was just a baby or toddler. Does anyone know anthing about this? William was list living in Robert's house in the 1850 census. Also Jane Parmlee,sister of Robert and daughter of John was my gt-gt-great grandmother on another side of the family. She married William Herriford.
