I'm also researching the Parrish/Parish family. I'm Robin Parrish and directly related to John T. Parrish & Emily Elizabeth (Bettie) Calvert. I'm most interested in learning about any Indian ancestry. I heard from my grandfather Eber C. Parrish (who later changed his name to Carl E. Parrish) that we have Cherokee blood on Emily Calvert's side - her mother, Millie (or Mettie) Britt was supposedly full-blood Cherokee. Is this true? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
