Surnames: Parrish
My grandfther was Delbert Lee Parrish of West Virginia..orginally from the Ripley area of WV. His father's name was Gilbert...who was married to Ida Hinzeman. My grandfather has 2 brothers Ray and Guy, and sisters Ruth and Gladys. His father had relatives which we think are brothers Everett and Edgar, or EK as I remeber one of them being called. I also recall he had an Aunt Nellie..and Aunt Sarrie(?). There was also a decendant that was a major in the Civil War...confederate. All are from the lower half of WV...however my grandfather and brothers, sisters etc, all moved to the Follansbee WV area in their early 20's. If anyonehas made connection to this Parrish family please let me know as most have passed and there is no one to ask. We are of Irish-Scotch decent we where told.

Dear Kim:
There are a lot of Parrish out of Ripley, WV. Although I personally do not have record of your ancestor, I do have a lot of info. on the Ripley gang. They were caught up in the Civil War and were divided North to South. Edward Parrish/Rachel had 23 children. My own uncle today is Del Parrish, so the name is following down the line.
If I can help, just send a email. kparrish53 @aol.com
Good luck

My Grandfather was Ray Denver Parrish of Follansbee WV. He worked for Follansbee Steel for years until he accepted an offer to work in Fontana, CA. He married Hazel Morgan of Follansbee.They had 2 children, Nancy and Charles (my father). I think Gilbert was a preacher from Ireland. Ida was of German decent.I also remember hearing something about Doe-Doe.
