Any information regarding Parsons families in WV and VA would be greatly appreciated. My wife’s great-grandfather John Frank Parsons was born in what was then Virginia (now West Virginia) about 1849 and we are searching for his ancestors. It is thought he lived most of his adult life in Kanawha Co. WV where he died in 1932. He married Lucy Thomas b. 1849 and d. 1915. John Frank and Lucy had 6 Children: Edward b. 1870, Cena b. 1872, Mary b. 1873, Watson b. 1876, Marion b. 1877 and Alfred Abney b. 1884. I have considerable information on descendants of John Frank Parsons and Lucy Thomas.
