My new e-mail is email@example.com I have worked on Parton/Partin/Parten/Partain/etc since Jan 1977.You can do a search using my name to see the lines that I concentrate on.I do not attempt to sort out the KY lines once they left TN.They have never joined my children's linesyet, perhaps back in early 1700s.Winston/Vincent may join the line of James Parton of War Creek, Hawkins Co now Hancock Co TN who went to Greene Co (Christina and surrounding areas) and he may join with Riley Parton who was in 1850 Greene Co TN and later in Knox Co TN.Those are not my children's lines, but I am still interested in them.So I am still interested in Winston, his siblings and parents, but not much in his descendants or the descendants of his siblings.
My children descend from a John Parton born ca mid 1770s in VA.He is believed to have been with his parents in Old Montgomery Co Va in late 1780s.This was on Big Reed Island Creek, now Grayson, Floyd, Carroll Counties area.Then his families went to NC, possibly the Mecklenburg and Montgomery Counties area.Believe his families are part of the Randall, Nathaniel and John Parton/Partin families there in early 1820s.
Some of John's sons were in Old Burke Co NC, now McDowell Co, in the late 1820s.John was probably the John Purden nearby in Swannanoa, Old Buncombe Co., NC.John may have been a brother or cousin to the Benajmin Parton who was in Old Buncombe which became Haywood Co NC.Brenda Messer has that Benjamin Parton's descendants on-line.
John's son Moses married in Burke Co NC inabout 1828 (This is from memory. I have exact dates). John's son Benjamin (my children's line. Born 1798-1801) signed his brother Moses's marriage bond. 1830 Benjamin and brother Gabriel George Partain were in Cocke Co TN I840 Benjamin and Father John were in Greene Co TN 1840 Gabriel was in Pope Co AR We have no idea when or where John died.Do not have proof of any name for his wife although we have some possiblities. Much more info on these lines are in my various postings. Doris Noland Parton 2758 McGaha Hollow Rd. Dandridge, TN 37725
