Parkhill. Thomas Brandon
Parkhill Family Bible in possession of Charlene Parkhill Hayes of Guntersville,
AL (2001) has David Parkhill b May 10, 1774. This is the same date that David Parkhill the son of Nathaniel Parkhill
and Mary Holden was
born in Williamstown, Berkshire Co., Massachuetts. Nathaniel was
b 1745, and d 1791 Springfield, Otsego Co., New York. He m Mary on 30 May
1766 in Lunenburg, Worcester Co., MA, d/o Daniel Holden & Rachel Richardson.
He is in Revolutionary War Records:
Private, Captain Enos Parker's co., Colonel
Benjamin Simond's regiment; enlisted July 9, 1777; discharged July 31, 1777;
service 23 days; regiment detached from Berkshire Co. Militia to reinforce
Continental Army at Ticonderoga; also same co. and regt.; enlisted August 14,
1777; discharged August 19, 1777; service 6 days; regiment detached from
Berkshire Co. militia to reinforce Continental Army at Bennington. (Massachusetts
Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War) Jan. 9, 1850; "engaged at
the Battle of Bennington and his brother Nathaniel Parkhill was wounded then by
a bull passing through his hip and he was found on the field after among the
slain..." from a letter written and dated as above by Nathaniel's nephew
David, son of his brother David, on
making application for father's pension for Revolutionary War service. (Selected
Records From Revolutionary War Pension Applications)
Parkhill d 24 Feb 1844 Guntersville, Marshall Co, AL. His wife Martha Wassham (Worsham) b Dec. 10, 1783. This David Parkhill,
was assumed to have died early, but left Massachusetts and went to TN. (James
James Parkhill, 2000:
"With the approach of the American Revolution, the dream of becoming a
separate colony with a royal colony with a royal governor was abandoned, and on
petition of the inhabitants the territory of Tennessee was annexed to North
Carolina in 1776 as the Washington district, which in 1777 became Washington
County, with the Mississippi River as the western boundary. During the American
Revolution, hardy mountaineers under John Sevier and Evan Shelby valiantly
fought against both the royal troops
chiefly as partisan rangers under Charles McDowell (1743-1815). An
interesting note shows the following regarding the marriage of David Parkhill
and Martha Wassham.Ē

The early Worsham families of Georgia have proven difficult to track their ancestors.
Baldwin and Putnam are neighboring counties in the center of Georgia. The 1790, 1800 &
1810 census records were lost for adjoining Wilkes, Green, Putnam & Baldwin counties.
Three early settlers in this area of Georgia were: Jeremiah Worsham b abt 1770 settling
in Baldwin Co, GA, William Worsham (added to page 645) b abt 1770 & Appling Worsham
(added to page 645) b abt 1782 both
settling in Putnam Co, GA. All three apparently have ties to North Carolina and may be
related. They could be related to Essex & Elizabeth Worsham (page 27) of Chesterfield
Co, VA who had 3 known sons William Worsham, John Washam & Branch Worsham.
1. Jeremiah Worsham b abt 1770 GA. This may be the
Jeremiah Washam b bef 1774 in the 1790 census of Salisbury District, Mecklenburg Co, NC,
p163. In the household were another male b bef 1774, 1 male b 1774-1790; and 3 females b
bef 1774. Jeremiah may be related to John Washam (page 354), a son of Essex Worsham (page
27) b 11 Jun 1732. John also had a son named Jeremiah.
