Subject: PARRETT and BOONE Connection

>From the History of Fountain County

"William D. Parret, farmer and Methodist minister, Steam Corner, was born
April 28, 1813, in Fayette County, Ohio. It seems that Frederick Parrett came
from Germany to America in 1744, and the grandfather of William D. fought in
the revolution, enlisting at the age of seventeen years. He was a nephew of
Daniel Boone, and spent some time with Boone in Kentucky. He also served in
the war of 1812, and fought at Tippecanoe."

The emigrant ancestor Frederick Parrett settled in Shenadoah County, Virginia
and married Barbara Edwards, Barbara may have been called Margaret or there
may have been another wife, because at least one land deed mentions his wife
Margaret. His son Joseph Parrett is William D. Parrett's grandfather, see
ancestor outline below. Joseph Parrett married Mary Wendel, some say Sarah
Wendel. I believe that Sarah was Joseph's second wife and was the widow Sarah
Morris. His third wife was Anna Hartman.

Can anyone shed any light on this possible BOONE Connection. I am also
interested any PARRETT / PARROTT information in VA, OH, IN, AND TN.
