Surnames: PARSONS, COVINGTON, BUCHANAN, ATKINSON
I am seeking any information on ancestors/descendants of VINCENT PARSONS, born circa 1783 in Maryland according to census info. Moved to ANSON CO., NC, about 1804. Married Mary "Nancy" COVINGTON. Owned a lot of property near Morven and the Pee Dee River in Anson County. Had at least 7 children, probably more, including my great grandfather VINCENT PARSONS, JR, born 11 October 1822, who married SARAH A. BUCHANAN, daughter of MAY BUCHANAN and second wife, MARY E. ATKINSON. Vincent Jr. died 12 June 1888 and is buried at Shiloh Methodist Cemetery, near Morven, NC. Any information will be appreciated and I am happy to share what I have.

Ruth, Do you know the names of the other children of Vincent and Mary 'Nancy'? Would you happen to have a George Redrick Parsons in your tree? Thanks for your time!

Surnames: PARSONS, COVINGTON, SCOTT, TERRY, GLASS
The children of Vincent Parsons, Sr. and first wife Mary "Nancy" Covington were: (1) Elizabeth Ann Parsons, b 6 Oct 1809, Old Morven, Anson Co., NC, m Robert Thomas Scott in 1826 at Sneedsboro, NC, d 13 Oct 1876, Scottsboro, Jackson Co., AL; (2) Robert H. Parsons, b bet 1810-1820; d Mar 1845, Morven, Anson Co., NC; (3) Mary Jane Parsons, b circa 1816, Anson Co., NC, m William L. Terry, d. before 1860; (4) Ellen H. Parsons, b 4 Nov 1818 at Old Morven, m William Henry Glass, d circa 1898; (5) Sarah Jane Parsons, b between 1819-1826, m Joseph Presley Nelms, d March 1850, Hernando, DeSoto Co., MS; (6) Vincent Parsons, Jr. I believe there was also a son named Edward J. Parsons, b circa 1827 who died on 6 Aug 1844 at the age of 17. Based on 1820 & 1830 census records, there were also other children; one report says that several children died of a fever when the family lived near the Pee Dee River. Hope this helps you. At this point in time, I have no record of a George Redick Parsons. Ruth Parsons Dunlop
