Parkhurst Family Tree
 
 
Welcome to our 
Parkhurst Family Tree
(a work in progress)

Our Parkhurst Ancestors are first found on record with George1 Parkhurst in Herkimer County, New York in the Town of Fairfield farming the land in 1800.


The Parkhurst’s farmed these lands in Herkimer County for almost three hundred years before I realized (in 1999) I played on the same grounds in which my ancestors existed.  I lived in the same towns in which they probably helped develop! 


Prior to George’s1 migration to Herkimer County, New York he was found in Lancaster, Worcester, Massachusetts where he was born in 1762 to his parents George2 & Keziah [Whitcomb] Parkhurst.  He came from a long line of “George’s.” [I have not determined at this time if George2’s siblings migrated to NY along with him-I did find other Parkhurst’s but haven’t been able to link them as of yet]


George2 married Rebecca Getchell in Partridge (now Peru), Berkshire, Massachusetts in 1788.  They migrated to the Town of Fairfield, Herkimer County, New York sometime between the years of 1795-1798 [their son Aaron was born in 1795 in Lancaster, Mass and their son Lyman was born in 1798 in Fairfield, NY so they had to have relocated between these three years].  George2 and Rebecca had four children born in Lancaster, Mass and then six more children in Fairfield, NY.


New England Heritage

Prior to the Parkhurst settlement in Fairfield, our earliest Parkhurst ancestry in America has been found on record in New England at Watertown, Massachusetts in 1642 with George Parkhurst, when it was ordered that a highway should be laid out to his house.  [His arrival in America must have been prior to his daughters marriage date of 1638 in Watertown, Middlesex County, Mass.] 


This George Parkhurst was born during 1588 possibly in May, probably in Ipswich, England.  George, his wife Phebe [whom he married in England about 1611] and nine of his children lived in Ipswich. Phebe was born about 1585 in Little Eversden, Cambridgshire, England to Robert Leete & Alice Grundy.  She died prior to 1641 in England.


George remarried in Watertown in 1645 to Susana, the widow of John Simpson.  At the age of 67 years George went back to England to assist his wife and children but it unlikely never returned to America.  It is believed that he is the “Old George Parkhurst” that was buried 18 June 1675 at Saint Lawrence, Ipswich, England.
