Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 277, Prairie Township, White County, Indiana

"JOHN PARRISH is a native of Ross County, Ohio, and the son of HENRY and ELIZA (HARVEY) PARRISH, who were pioneers of Tippecanoe County, Indiana, having settled there in 1831, when JOHN was in his fourth year. There the latter was reared to farming, and received his education, and there he was married to MISS REBECCA GODMAN, daughter of RICHARD GODMAN, farmer. In the spring of 1851, MR. PARRISH came to this township and engaged in farming, and at present owns 400 acres, all prairie, with the exception of fifteen acres; he owns besides, the largest steam elevator in Brookston, and buys all kinds of grain at the highest market price; he has a neat office connected with a wagon scale and a steam corn sheller in the elevator, and, in addition to his grain business, acts as agent for the sale of agricultural implements. MR. PARRISH has served the county as Commissioner for six years, and has given satisfaction to all parties. He and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and they have two children living - MARTHA J. and ELIZABETH."
