(Note: this was probably part of the land that was originally purchased by David W. Parrish from John and Martha Gilmer in 1833 when he moved with his family to Christian County, Kentucky. The land eventually passed to David's son James S. Parrish. In 1871, James deeded these 205 acres to his sister, Lucretia Parrish Whitlock. In 1893, this land was passed to her daughter, Lee P. Jones and family. They lived here until 1919, when Lee died. The land was sold in 1921 to a Robert Woodard.)
