Hi Lynne! I really enjoyed your story. As you can see, I'm a Parkhurst too! Last year, I signed up for Ancestry.com to study both my Mom & Dad's sides. I've been focused mostly on my Mom's b/c oh goodness are there stories there. But, I still haven't figured out which (and when) my Parkhurst line emigrated to America. I didn't need to go far back for my Mom's side. I know a lot more about that side too so I can confirm the names. I don't think I'm from the Pankhurst - Parkhurst line though. My ancestors were already here when the scandalous George was in England.
