I am a direct descendant of George Parsons, Sr., through his son, Evan, grandson, Samuel, great grandson Sterling, and great great grandaughter, Carolyn Parsons Hodge. I, too, am stumped at the John Parsons/Lady Catharine Weatherby link to England. The records I've found show John was born about 1715 in England, and Catharine, about 1717 in England. I can't find them any other place. I think Catharine died in Maryland before John moved to North Carolina. If anyone finds anything, please let me know, and I'll do the same. Thanks.
