I am currently researching the surnames Helton, Parsons, Nunley, McCoy and related families in and around Tishomingo Co., MS.
I discovered that there were two Helton lines who settled in Tishomingo Co., MS. The line I am researching traveled through TN. The other line came from GA. I have found no connection. There were also two lines of Parsons who settled in Tishomingo.
I have heard rumors about possible Indian ancestry. So far, I have found no connections. This where DNA testing for genealogical purposes may come in handy.
I have done extensive research in TN. My Helton and Parsons lines travelled through TN as well as other family lines. The counties I am researching in TN are Hickman, Dickson, Warren, Grundy and Blount.
