Wesley Abner Parrish was born in Perry County close to Mousetail State Park. He was the son of Allen Wesley and Irene Parrish.
Mr. Parrish left Perry County about 1880 relocating to Newbern, Dyer County, Tennessee. He married Mary Frances Dixon/Dickson October 7, 1886 in Dyer County, Tennessee. To this union two children were born. Wesley Otto Parrish born October 5, 1888 and Dolly M. Parrish born May 1894 in Newbern, Dyer County, Tennessee.
Mary Frances Dixon/Dickson Parrish died October 18, 1894 and is buried in Poplar Grove Cemetery in Dyer County, Tennessee. Daughter Dolly M Parrish is no longer on census in 1910 so it is assumed she died in Dyer County but no grave has been located on her at this time.
Mr. Parrish married Susan Emma Davis March 31, 1897 in Dyer County, Tennessee. To this union three daughters were born, Rosa Lee, Flossie, and Elizabeth Maurene Parrish.
The Parrish Family moved to Mississippi for a few years and then proceeded to Burk/Lufkin, Texas where they spent the remainder of their lives.
