Notes

"This chapter is entitled "A Connecting Link" since the author is descended from two sons of John Parsons Sr. (551), i.e., Josuah Parsons (293) on her paternal side and Moses M. Parsons (555) on her maternal side. The folowing chapters will feature Josuah Parsons and some of his descendants down to and including the father of the author and his first marriage and family. At that point, the focus will then switch to Moses Parsons and his descendants and will continue until the second connecting point is reached--the meeting and marriage of the parents of the author. After that connection, the descendants of both sides will continue, linked forever."--p. 1.

Charles Parsons (b. 1745) was born in Queen Anne's County, Maryland and was married twice. Elizabeth Chestnut (b. ca. 1749) gave him seven children before her death (d. before 1797). All of their children were born in Buchannon Settlement, Harrison County, Virginia. Nancy Anna Flesher (b. ca. 174-?) was Charles' second wife and was born in Hampshire County, Virginia. Charles and Nancy had six children in Mason County, Virginia. John Parsons (ca. 1778-1859) and his descendants are the focus of this work. John comes from the first marriage (Charles and Elizabeth). In 1804, John Parsons and Mary Greathouse married in St. Clairsville, Ohio. They spent most of their married life in Mason and Jackson Counties, Virginia (now West Virginia); some their descendants moved into Kanawha County, Virginia (now West Virginia). The descendants include Parsons, Casdorph, Cavender, Edens, Marion, Young and related lines.

Includes an index to the history section and a separate index to the family group section.
