This couple supposedly mar. in Patrick Co. Va. in 1803. Thomas was son of Henry Parr (who d. bef. 3/1788 in Va.) Have been told Thomas & family moved to Lexington, Ky. maybe around 1806? There was a Thomas Parr in Adair Co. Ky. in 1810 census but I don't think Lexington was in Adair Co. then?? Then Thomas & Priscilla were in Crawford Co. In. in 1820 census. I have been told by other researcher that this couple had 6 sons & 6 daughters but know none of their names except we think John Parr b. 1804 in Va. could be one of their sons. Found quotes of probate records from 1825 - 1829 where Priscilla named admin. of his estate. Found her in 1830 Crawford Co. census as head of household. No further ref. of her found.
John Parr, who we think was their son, moved to Marion Co. est. 1822 @ age of 18. He mar. in 1829 Ruth Parr in Meade Co. Ky. This couple then lived in Marion Co. until est. 1835/1836 as their 3 oldest children born in Marion Co.- 8 later children born in Crawford Co. In (their oldest son was William Anderson Parr.)
Any info. about any of these people appreciated.
