Our research has focused on the PARNELL line in Kentucky and Illinois, and has included collateral lines that may be helpful to you. To find out if we have information on a person you are looking for, Check out the SURNAMES under FAMILY ROOTS
The progenitor of our Parnell line in Kentucky is John Parnell and wife Candis (Mays) Parnell. John was born 1 January 1790 possibly in Tennessee, he died 27 October 1871 in Casey Co., Kentucky. John and Candis lived on the Adair/Casey Co., line. John's parents are unknown, you can find out about his children by reading the information found under. FAMILY ROOTS descendants of John Parnell
