Descendants of Joseph Parrott and Middy Perry

Generation No. 1

1. Joseph1 Parrott1,2 was born 1807 in North Carolina?3,4, and died Aft. 1874 in unknown5,6. He married Meddy Perry7,8 August 01, 1834 in Franklin County, NC9,10.

Notes for Joseph Parrott:
Joseph Parrott may have been the father of George Parrott who died in 1907 and whose body was released to Henry Parrott, William Yarber and Thomas Clark, Jr. George Parrott is buried in the Parrott cemetery, north of Rosiclaire, IL. The dates on the stone are July 27, 1851 to August 11, 1907.

In the cemetery, there is a grave for a Frankie Gibbs who died as a child. LDS records indicate that Maranda Parrott was married on Nov. 9, 1873 to James Gibbs. At the time of this writing, it is unknown if Frankie Gibbs is male or female and it is unsure whether or not this is the child of James Gibbs and Maranda Parrott. Maranda Parrott is also thought to have married an Edward Williams and census records indicate that she had children after 1873 who were the children of Edward Williams.

No marriage is indicated on the ILLINOIS marriage index between Maranda Parrott and James Gibbs.

It concerns this writer that LDS records may or not be accurate and that they cloud the real truth when doing genealogy research.

Joseph Parrott and John Kelley took out a marriage bond for Joseph Parrott to marry Meddy Perry in 1834. John Kelly was from Darlington District, SC and had a brothe named Wiley Kelley who married a Charlotte Parrott. Charlotte was the daughter of Jacob Parrott and Penelope House. Charlotte had a brother named Joseph Parrott, shown as born in 1786. It is not known if THIS Joseph is the one who married Meddy Perry. The only connection is the Kelly or Kelley connection since it is a long way from Darlington District SOUTH CAROLINA to Franklin County, NC. Joseph (son of Jacob) married Martha Belcher. Could it be that Meddy Perry was Joseph's 2nd wife? Indications are that Joseph (son of Jacob) died in 1841 in South Carolina. If so then it could not be the same JOSEPH PARROTT.

Notes for Meddy Perry:
(Meddy may have been a nickname. I have tried searching for Armeda, Armida, Armita, Medina, Medrina, Matilda, and all possibilities that I have thought of trying to find out who Meddy Perry may have been. I have seen her name as Mida, Meddy, Mattie and Meedie. I do not know what her real given name may have been. )

Marriage bonds were taken twice, once in January, 1834 and again in August 1834. The only reason I can think of why Joseph Parrott would take two marriage bonds out is that perhaps Meddy was not old enough to get married in January, but was old enough in August. I have not been able to find an actual marriage license to confirm that the two were married, but census records show that the first five offspring were born in NC and the sixth in Missouri. That leads me to believe that either Meddy or Joseph had relatives in Missouri.

My grandfather, William Burl Yarber, told me (and others) that his mother's mother (Meddy Perry) was full blooded Chickasaw Indian. He may have been mistaken, or may have meant his father's mother, since no record has been found to determine who Mary (wife of John Yarbrough) was, or whether she was Native American.

I have searched all through the Native American records data bases and have been unable to prove that Meddy was Native American. But when the government is involved in anything, it is prone to error.

Government involvement in the determination of Native American Indian blood was flawed from the very beginning. Issues of whether or not someone is, by birth, a member of one heritage or another, should not be determined by any government.

There is convincing evidence that many Native Americans were not counted on any of the "rolls" and that many non-natives were included.

History shows us that many Native Americans denied their Indian heritage because they did not want to be forced to leave their lands. The same history books show that many white settlers claimed to be Native American in order to receive money being doled out by the government to Native Americans.

One thing is clear. The Federal Government's involvement was flawed. It appears in reading actual case histories that reporters used their own judgment rather than fact when making determinations whether or not a families were entitled to payment and classification as Native American.

In a letter to the government office responsible for inventorying the Cherokee Nation, David Siler writes;

"Indeed these people are so scattered since the breaking up of the Nation that I do not flatter myself with the belief that with all the names I have taken their names have been ascertained and reported in the course of four months, I think however that very few indeed have been omitted if there are any."

The Siler census is what the Chapman roll was based on. Guion- Miller used the Chapman Rolls to include those Cherokees east of the Mississippi in the 1906 payment to all the Cherokees.

David Siler was wrong. Even though he admitted that it was an impossible task to inventory the Cherokees east of the Mississippi in four months, he went on to say that he thought "very few indeed have been omitted if there are any." That is colossal government doublespeak.

Another quote from actual case history regards whether or not a certain family should be admitted and shows that the report writer used his own judgement, not fact, in making his decision:
"These families of John Fields, Sarah Fields, Margaret Still, Mary Evans with the orphan boy John Still could produce no facts to show their Indian blood. I came to the conclusion that they were mixed with some other races. Afterwards, Dr. J. L. Yarnell informed me that they are Cherokees. He gives no account of the history of the family except Sarah Fields is the widow of George Fields and that Mary Evans was the wife of George Still. Dr. Yarnell is highly recommended."

How did Dr. J. L. Yarnell know that the Fields family were indeed Cherokees? Another classic example of one man's opinion.

And other reporters used their own judgment to deny claims by families who may have been legitimately entitled:
"William and John Smith live in Jackson County, Alabama, they have the reputation where they live as being Cherokees. I learned that they have been in the habit of denying their Indian blood, they were raised in Marshall County, Alabama. I could obtain no accurate account of their history. They tell me they don't know whether they are Cherokee. John has the appearance of a half Indian."

This writer does not feel that a "new" inventory would accomplish anything. Too much time has lapsed and too many records have been lost. It would be nice to know, however, if one's claim to be "one eighth" Indian is legitimate or just family legend.

Born in Hardin County on the farm known as the Marglin Place near Steele. She was the daughter of Daniel and Lucinda Parrot.

From here she moved to Brookport, IL. some three years ago where she was at the time of her death. She wished to live to see her boys grown in which she did. She was buried at Poke near Brookport, IL. (From the Hardin County Independent, Hardin County, IL 17 July 1919)
