My father, Philip G. Parsons, and mother, Hazel K. Quint, were active in collecting genealogical
data on their families. In addition to the dates and names they collected stories written by
individuals and relatives. Stories of "Quint" relatives and other relatives of Ray Parsons are
listed in the story section of Ray Parsons' web page. The Quint stories are found at that
web site and you are invited to go to the Story & Photo Section.
The stories tell the pioneering history of the Quint family in Kansas. They are very interesting, DON'T MISS THEM.

Origin of the Quint FamilyThe country of origin of Thomas Quint is unknown. Some family members thought the family came from "The Isle of Man" but there was never any proof found.
Philip Quint recently indicated to me that he thinks they may have come from near Trier, Germany (Click here for link to Trier city Web Site, requires internet connection) and that there are currently people with the Quint surname living there as well as a section of the area called Quint.
The Quint name may have originated with Holy Roman Emporer, Charles V (also called Charles Quint) in about 1520. Click here for more on Charles Quint 1500-1558) If anyone finds
verification of the tie to "the old country", please let me know about it. --- Ray Parsons.
