  1. Sue Ryan (nee Parkman) Says:

    You are descended from Samuel Paul (Pablo) Parkman, b. 2/7/1804, Aurora, NY? Samuel was son of Robert Breck Parkman, b. 5/21/1771, who was son of Alexander, b. February 1746 or 1747?

    If so, you might be interested that I am descended from:
    Alexander Parkman, b. 4/17/1773, brother of Robert Breck Parkman!

    It is a small world, isn’t it? Do you have family information going back to England? I’m pretty sure we derive from Thomas Parkman, b. 1589, Sidmouth, Devon, but would love more information if you have it to share. Best regards, Sue Parkman Ryan
