Not sure if you have had a chance to review your Wilson genealogical information or not. I believe I found another connection with a sibling of Maskle Wilson and a Parsons.

The surnames of my ancestors in Canada were Hill and Galloway. My Hill ancestor immigrated from England. My Galloway ancestor was born in NY. I noted that a number of people seemed to cross back and forth from Ontario to St. Lawrence…"
Where do I begin? I was born in 1947 in Sheffield, Colbert County, Alabama. I have been in California the vast majority of my life, however. If you can find it, I have a public tree on Ancestry.com titled "Helton Family Tree (JD)" and you are welcome to have a look at it. I am only certain that the data there is fairly accurate back about three or four generations.
Where I am currently stuck is finding the parents of my great grandfather William Henry Helton. He was bron in Alabama 16 Dec 1868, and died 01 Nov 1938 I believe in Colbert Coounty. On Familysearch.org I found some death information that stated his father was "Wash Helton" and listed his mother as "Allen". Another researcher told me two things: 1) that the Helton's of Colbert County were in the Daniel Irvin Helton line and 2) that I should investigate the possibiity that my great grandfather's father was Miles Washington Helton out of TN. No luck there so far.
Other possible leads in this search are Hiney Helton (Born about 1851 in Alabama, Died 1900 in Bastrop, Texas), and Henry Clay Helton (Born 1847 in Alabama, Died 1898 in Texas).
I am awaiting results of a DNA test which may help, but am going crazy in the meanwhile and constantly running into dead ends.
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I have sent endless messages to members of other websites and it seems none of them visit the sites anymore. As a matter of fact, I do know where Maskle & Dewey are burried. I have a photo of the headstone, and my grandfather is supposed to send me photos of Mr. & Mrs. Wilson. If you would like, I can e-mail the photo to you. I don't believe I have very much information on the Parsons but anything I do have, you are more than welcome to have it. I have only been researching my family for a short time, but since the recent passing of my grandmother Carolyn S. (Holt) Wilson, I found old documents in her belongings that have helped alot.
If there is anything I can do to help you, I would be more than willing to take photos at cemeteries, find death records, etc. Once again, thank you for getting back to me so quickly. Good luck with your research.
Hello Judy -- I read one of your posts about having ancestors in the Grenville-Leeds area of Ontario. Just wondering if any of your ancestors connected with any Lee, Clow or Palmer lines. My ancestors ended up in the Leeds area about 1801 and after the third generation part of them headed to Minnesota about 1850. Looking forward to a reply. Have a great day! Sandra Johnson.
Judy _ I *think* if you look to the right under your name it says "friends". Try that and see if you can confirm there. :)
My line from John William Helton goes like this:
John William Helton m. Rosa Inez Helton....to them was born my Grandmother, Rosa Edith Helton m. Willie Dee Smith. To Edith & W.D. was born my Mother, Mary Edith (Edie) Smith. :) My birthfather was Frederick V. Brown but I was adopted and my father is Andrew P. Connelly. My husband, Trevor and I have 8 children...some birthed, one adopted from foster care and two were given to us by a stranger in a Wendy's parking lot. Talk about a DIVERSE branch of the Helton tree...we are definately it! ;)
Thank you for doing a search for Ethalinda (unknown) Pigg.
I initiated a PIGG group. Would you please post this information there.
I have a question. I have information that John and Ethalinda were in Warren, not Hardin County, Tennessee in 1850. I am concerned about this.
