My grandmother Ella Parrish Williams was from a Spanish family that migrated from Spain. Her mother was a William Elizabeth Paschall who married Algie Jefferson Parrish. Now that I have you confused you can e-mail me. The pronunciation of Paschall was changed to sound more american.

Hi,

My name is Felecia Thomas and my family is from both NC and VA. My great grandfather, Nick Long married Ceily Jane Finch in NC ( Nash Co. or Franklin I think). We really don't know that much about this side of the family and are trying to find out more. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. I can be reached at christianlady22870@yahoo.com.

I know someone in North Carolina in the Finch-Egerton-Parrish Family that may be able to give you some information. Jeff Parrish and Eliza Egerton were her great grandparents. Edward Finch 1820, Mariah Finch 1840, John Finch 1855, Gertrude Finch 1863 are in her Family Tree. Also Henderson Egerton 1835 is one of the Egertons in this family.

I have few Egertons on my tree because my cousin Florine married Horace Egerton. Do you have specific names?

The Egertons on the Finch-Edgerton-Parrish Tree are Kemp 1857, Louis 1860, Leah 1862, Eliza 1864-Married Jeff Parrish, Henderson 1868, Sarah 1869, Patsy 1970, Paul 1972, Silas 1872, Sally 1874, Frank 1876, Carrie 1879. I think these are Henderson Edgerton and Mariah Finch's children.
I am not sure if this tree is on line. I got this information from one of my relatives who is related to this family.

Hi,

I know Ms. Florene Green, she was my louisburg elementary school cafeteria manager....I think this is a different set of Edgertons......she married Horance Edgerton, who was the son of Walter and Nena Edgerton of Nelson Chapel.


Thanks

I went to school in 1969 with an African American named Willie Edgerton and his father is from Louisburg NC. Also, there is a funeral home in Louisburg NC and the owners are the Alston Family who may have Native American and African American descent. Hope this helps you to some degree. I married a man from Louisburg and I am from Virginia. Good luck!
