Looking for more information about John Franklin PARNELL (b. 1851 in Boone Co., IN; died 1913 in Baxter Co., AR) and Hester Ann WILKINS (~1852-1882, Mountain Home, Baxter, AR).

Hester Ann's parents: William WILKINS (born in GA, settled eventually in Baxter Co, AR) and Matilda Ann LYDA (born in GA, died in AR or MS).

John Franklin and Hester Ann PARNELL were parents to my grandfather Charles William PARNELL (b. 24 Dec 1876 in Norfork, Baxter, AR)

After Hester Ann's death, John Franklin married Elsie Clementine LAFFOON, and they had many children together.

John William Parnell may be the son or nephew of Azariah (Zear) Parnell born 1819 Kentuckey died Jan 1887 just across the boarder in Almartha, Ozark County, Missouri. You may want to research theis line. Zear's father william died 1885 in Van Buren county, AR just to the south of Baxter County so that would put your John in the middle. I would do research on this. Please email me at wanttopreach@gmail.com and I will give you mom's phone. Maybe you could get info or sources from her

We could be related to Zear Parnell, but we have never found any proof. There are several Parnells that end up in Arksansas and MIssouri. From what we know about Zear Parnell, his father (William) and grandfather (Stephen) are known and they came out of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. I think my family of Parnells will eventually be traded to Anne Arundel, but they were in Rowan County, North Caroline, for several generations before Abraham's (John Mark Parnell's father) birth.
