Bio and Links
Bio Photo I come from a long line of "storytellers" or keepers of family history. I was first inspired to study history and genealogy by my paternal grandfather, Alonza Nelson Parish, when I was a very young child. My maternal grandmother, Margaret Frances "Fannie" Mobley McElveen, was also a genealogist and lived to be almost 102 years old. She remembered stories of just following the Civil War.
Other than Parish, Mobley, and McElveen, I am also researching Simms, Crone, Gay, Taylor, Wellons, Coor, Liles, Rhodes, Todd, Massey, Walker, McMillan, Jordan, Brashear, Coke, Corker, Fowke, Allison, Chambliss, Northington, Chappell, Briggs, McKee, Byrd, Tilden, Sutton, Briggs, Dye, Neil, Towns, Livingston, Clark, Ruffin, Windham, Bracewell, Harden, Mattox, Crouch, Wall, Teague, Ricker, Green, Powell, Wheeldon, and Blair.
I love to help other people find their family and honor their loved ones.

Parish/Parrish Family
Hello Nancy.
I'm Terrill Parrish from Macon Co, NC. I've been working on my genealogy since Aug 2008 when the VA thought I should have a hobby. I'd like to exchange family information with you. May I use the information and photos you list on Find A Grave?

Terrill Parrish.

RE: Rhodes
Our line of Rhodes was from Fluvanna County in the early 1800s. I don't know currently how many remain there. My line moved to Fayetteville, NC (Robert L. Rhodes). This is the one who married the Branch daughter, sister of William M. Branch, Jr. Many of the Rhodes worked for the railroad and some for Western Union in NC or Virginia.

I see you are researching Rhodes also. Where we're your Rhodes located? Mine were from Fluvanna Co., VA.

RE: William McNeil Branch
Thank you very much for linking them. There is a sister, Lila Branch Peele, whose grave I have not been able to locate that probably is in Scotland Co., NC. We have never been able to locate a grave or death certificate for
William, Sr.

Virginia was my great great grandmother through her daughter, Louise. Two of Virginia's grandchildren are still living, both 98 yo this year.

How are you connected to William? I met a great grandson of his a few years ago.

Hi Nancy,
My husband's gg/grandfather and William David Mobley's father were brothers.
I have a tree on ancestry where I have connected as many Mobley family members as I can.
I now have been adding things to Find A Grave.
You can review and print out what ever you want to, for 14 days free, on ancestry.
All I will need is your e-mail.
I am Brenda (Bee) Mobley in Chester,S.C.

Thank you for your interest and for connecting to me.

Thank you so much for the photo. Sadie's daughter was one of my mother's best friends. Now that I see her photo, I can see that she and her daughter looked so much alike.
