RESEARCH NOTES
Contributed by Clark Blake:

I was finally able to get a copy of the lengthy indenture signed by the children (and their spouses) and some grandchildren of the Charles Parsons who m. Elizabeth Chesnut and Nancy Flesher Sleeth. This document is among the most important ones we have for establishing the children (and grandchildren) and their spouses.

The complete indenture can be found in Deed Book 7, p. 272-274, Jackson Co. Courthouse, Ripley.

The indenture involves a piece of property on the "Left Hand Fork of Mill Creek" in Jackson Co. left by CHARLES to his two sons, ELIAS and CHARLES PARSONS, JR. on Feb. 10, 1819. In the present suit, Charles' children and children of his oldest child, "CAPT. WILLIAM PARSONS, dec'd." are suing to receive their compensation for half of this land from their sibling, ELIAS PARSONS. In the body of the text it states, "Therefore this indenture made this 4th day of January 1849 between MARY CARNEY, GEORGE PARSONS & MARY his wife, JOHN BOARD and NANCY his wife, WILLIAM CASTO and MARTHA his wife, JAMES CUNNINGHAM and SARAH his wife, JOHN PARSONS and MARY his wife, JOSEPH BEEBY and MARGARET his wife, ELIZABETH SMITH, CHARLES PARSONS and REBECCA his wife, HENRY PARSONS, WILLIAM PARSONS, CHARLES PARSONS, JOHN F. PARSONS and RUHAMY his wife, TRAVIS PARSONS, ISAAC ROLLINGS and MARY his wife, ANN SHEPPARD, GEORGE PARSONS and MARY E. PARSONS, his wife, JOSEPH MILLER and CAROLINE his wife, ISAAC CASTO and ELIZABETH his wife, JORDAN TOLLEY and JERRY (=Jerusha) his wife, ZABLE ROLLINS and MARGARET J. (=Janette) his wife, LAFAYETTE PARSONS, and FRANCIS PERRY and MARY his wife, NANCY PARSONS, children, grandchildren and heirs of said CHARLES PARSONS......"

During the American Revolutionary War Charles Parsons entered service as a private at Romney, Hampshire Co. in the Virginia Militia in the Company of Captain John Harness' Virginia Rangers (1775). He served as a Scout from Harrison County Virginia in 1792. It was about this time , that he came from Fort Buckhannon to the Ohio Valley with his family and settled on the fifth bottom south of the Little Kanawha River known as Warth's Bottom, where an industrial faciltiy now is located.

Charles Parsons was first listed on the tax lists of kanawha County in 1802. He died Nov. 4, 1823 and was buried in the Frozen Camp Cemetery of the Upper Mill Creek Baptist Church. The Ravenswood Chapter of the national Sons and Daughters of the American revolution placed a marker at the grave 1970.
