     Have found Margery Parr Perry listed as the daughter of William Parr (b. 1480) and Mary Salisbury in numerous family trees but other records show his 4 daughters being Maud, Anne,Elizabeth, and Mary. None of these daughters married a Parr. Does anyone know who the parents of Margery Parr (b. abt 1520, married Richard Perry) were? Thinking this is a glitch in my family tree and hoping to make sure my info is correct. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.

     PARR in Kentucky, USA (1.) John Parr/Pair (b. abt 1780) (m. ?) Jane unknown, so this oldest generation is speculation; (2.) James R. Parr (b. abt 1805) in Mercer Co. KY USA. James (m. 12 Dec 1823) Nancy B. Hunn (b. 05 Jul 1809) in Mercer Co. KY USA. By 1850, James was not on the scene and Nancy, with her Parr children, was in Platte Co. MO USA. This male lineage has been Y-dna tested and found to be R1b1b2* or R-M269 haplogroup (Ysearch.org ID = 3DCAY). The best match, so far, is a 33/37 marker match with Jack Parr parrresearch@sympatico.ca; however, no genealogy connection has ben found thus far. Any contact is welcome.

     PHILLIP PARR of Southfarham, Essex Co, VA – died ca 1701. Spouse was JUDITH ALLAMAN, dtr of THOMAS ALLAMAN. Evidently he died young since his daughters were unwed and wife pregnant with fourth child. In his will he names Father-in-law THOMAS ALLAMAN, brother-in-law RICHARD COVINGTON, kinsman p RICHARD CARTER.
     PHILLIP was the father of: MARY who married CHARLES BREEDLOVE; CONSTANT who married THOMAS EDMONDSON; JUDITH who married 1) JOHN DYKE III, and 2) HENRY FAULKNER, and ANN who married WILLIAM BOULWARE. His widow married JAMES EDMONDSON and had other childen. His children inherited from the SAVAGEs and the WEBSTER line? Who were the parents of PHILLIP PARR?

     I’am looking for information on Alexander Parr, b:1832 Va. (possibly WV). I have found another Alexander with a son named Alexander as well that may or may not be his father. He married Julia Abrams in 1867, he may have been in the Civil War as well but no proof either way. They then moved to Iowa, had 11 children and he died in 1901. I am stumped past these few facts. Help!! I do hope someone may have an idea of where to search next or a clue or two. Any help I can give someone I’d be happy to do.
Thanks, Jobeth

     Looking for any information on family of my Ann Susan PARR who married my William GANDER on 19 Jan 1812 in St.Mary’s, Newington, Surrey, England. All I know is that she was buried at All Hallows the Great in the City of London in 1825 aged 43 so she was born c.1782. It’s possible that she had a brother named William PARR if it helps anyone. (William & his wife Elizabeth and their children were living at the same address in Upper Thames Street some 6 years after Ann Susan died). Would love to know more! Des Gander

     George Parr (born 4 January 1824 at Waterbeach Cambridge, England) had his picture taken when he was 85 years old at Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I also have a picture with the caption, “another son of Hattie Diekls (Pickle ?) uncle George Parrs daughter.” That picture was also at Cedar Rapids, but in a different style and had the phographer “Kadgihn Studio” embossed on it. That’s all I have on the family of George Parr, I am interested in finding out more of George and his family.
