I am not familiar with a Millard Parton.I am very familiar with the early lines.All the Sevier Co. Partons came from brothers Benjamin and Moses who settled there permanently after 1850.Have you tried the smokykin.com site?It is based on the Sevier Co. Heritage Book which I contributed to.Yes, my children and Dolly descendtwice from Henry Bohanan and Amelia Shotwell.We probably join on other lines too.When you go to smokykin.com click on index or families.Go to Parton.Click on Clint or Danielle Parton, my children, and you will see much of their pedigree.I am the person who contributed Dolly's line to the heritage book and that is how it got on-line.I was married to her brother, Bobby.
There are some errors.On my line,James Alexander McFall's father was Arthur, and not Alfred Burton McFalls who was really his brother instead!
The farthest back proven Parton on this line is John born ca mid 1770s in VA.His wife is totally unknown. even her first name.We do NOT know when or where he died.Beckwith made a lot of mistakes taking the info from the heritage book and putting it on-line.I also made a mistake at guessing at the first name of John's wife, and it went into print like it was true.We've never seen a name for her. You can also check for Millard in the index with all the Parton names.I donated all my census books to the Sevier Co. Library, Genealogy Section, so I don't have them at my fingertips like I used to.I don't believe that Millard goes in my chldren's line because I don't recall hearing that name.
There were also a large number of Partons in the Rutherford Co. area who descend from Nathaniel Parton.I have corresponded with and met a man who wrote a book on them.Nathaniel was not from Sevier Co.,TN, but we nave always thought that he was somehow a cousin to our line.
You may want to contact that researcher who knows Rutherford Co. records very well, helped transcribe many of them, and has Partons on his tree:
Paul H. Dellinger P.O. Box 5153 Lincolnton, NC 28092
You could probably also get his phone number from information or who.where.com I believe thathe is on-line, but I had a computer crash and don't have his e-mail just now. Good luck!
