Information and Purpose

Some Parsons & Quint genealogy, stories and photos. Parsons in Ireland emigrated in 1840's to Ohio. The long range purpose of this page is to preserve some common family interests. Currently, genealogy and Ray Parsons' Art Gallery are accessible from this site. Changes may be made periodically. This CD disk is copied from my files on the internet at http://rayparsons.fortunecity.com/ and associated pages.

Interest in Genealogy

My parents, Philip George Parsons and Hazel Kathryn Quint. (Photos Sept. 1924) were active in collecting genealogy information for many years and I inherited the job of preserving and adding to it. Recognizing that genealogy data is somewhat boring, my parents collected related stories which were more of general interest. Access to both data and stories is available from this site. I have added some photos to some of the stories.

My mother's line goes back through Remember Allerton (a Mayflower passenger) and her husband, Moses Maverick to English Knights , Lords, Kings, William the Conqueror, Charlemagne, etc. You can see the genealogy line on RootsWeb.com at Family Trees, database = parsonsr data on my ancestors.

My father's grandfather came to Zanesville, Ohio from Tullamore, Ireland (click here for history of) with mother, brothers and sisters in the 1840's. In searching for his Irish ancestors I have collected considerable information on the Parsons Families in Ireland. To see data of Parsons in Ireland 1590-1850

 


Stories Collected By My Parents

Along with the statistical collection of data on genealogy my folks were always interested in collecting stories of individuals and events to make genealogy more interesting. Over the years they convinced many relatives to write stories of events in the lives of their children, siblings, parents, grandparents, or themselves. I'm publishing the stories here as memorial to my parents. I hope their stories can be preserved and new stories added. Click on the name or item below to see a story and/or photo.
