There is a group of Parrotts that traces back to a John Parrott, b 1792 in Tennessee. Although the paper trail ends there, DNA points to a relationship to other Parrotts/Perritts from South Carolina. The family lore is that the founding members were 4 brothers who came from France to fight in the Revolutionary War. While the descendants from 2 of the brothers are reasonably identified, the fate of the other two remains unknown. However, John's birthdate and DNA profile can be best explained if he was a son of one of the missing brothers. This information is provided to help others in their research on this family. However, many branches are still missing, and most of the information has not been verified, so use carefully!
