I looked through the census books and found:
1920 Census book by M. Treadway,pg.155
88-88 Parsons Zion Head 61 VA VA VA farmer
Jennie wife 47 VA VA VA
Shermon son 37 VA
Dillard son 20 VA
Rilda dau 16 VA
Olen son 13 VA
Lota gr.dau 12 VA Ky VA

1910 Census book M. Treadway, pg.257
Parson Zion R Head 54 Md2 13 VA VA VA
Jennie wife 37 Md2 13 6 5 VA VA VA
William S son 24 S VA
George son 22 S VA
Dillard son 10 S VA
Rildie dau 7 S VA
Olen son 4 S VA
Griffith Nancy E dau 26 Md2 3 3 VA VA VA
Wilson Willie E Stepdau. 13 S VA
Ayers William J Boarder 30 S OH
Apparently Jennie's first husband was a Wilson. There is no mention of Nancy's children in the census living with this family group.
I don't have the 1900 book, but the 1880 gets interesting in that there are three Zion Parsons about the age yours would have been then listed. They are as follows:
pg. 134 of book:
Parsons Zion 26 Head VA VA VA 142-142
Elizabeth 29 wife VA VA VA
Elbert 4 VA
Marget 1 VA
pg.135 of book:
Parsons Zion 24 Head VA VA VA 152-157
Francis 26 Wife VA VA VA
pg.365 of book
Parsons John 60 Head VA VA VA 38-40
Mary 59 wife VA VA VA
D Zion 26 VA
Mattie L 23 VA
W Cecil 13 nephew VA VA VA
This D Zion is listed as a teacher according to the Bicentennial book of Lee Co.

There is also info on Rilda and Ervin Stapleton in the Bicentennial book, I will
send you the address of the submitter in a private e-mail. Hope this helps with your search. Regina
