The bible must have come from my mother's or her EIGNOR father's house. My grandfather's family had connections with Ulster, Delaware and possibly Schoharie families with CROSBY, GOSSOO, SIMMONS and CRISPELL . The other possibilities are: the
ELLIS/REYNOLDS family of Sullivan Co., the VAN ETTEN/RICKS/WOLVEN families of
Woodstock, Ulster or BLAUVELT family of NYC and Orange Co. I can find no PARSONS connections to any of these in my database which contains almost 20 years of research.
The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ;
translated from the Greek and with the former translations diligently
compared and revised.
(New York: American Bible Society, 1848).
