I am looking for info on my family from Woodlawn (Baltimore), MD My GGF name was William A Parrish- he married Otelia B Parrish. He was previously married to Nettie Ritter Parrish. They were from the Woodlawn area in Baltimore. My GF- Clarence James Parrish was born in Sept 1905. He had several siblings (Fred, Edith and Ruth). Any info that I can get would be greatly appreciated. I have no contact with that side of my family, so I am limited to the information that my mom can remember. Thanks.

Otelia's middle name was Bowen. Born 23 Jun 1890, died 21 Dec 1971, married William Parrish 11 Nov 1921. Daughters Mary Margaret and Fern Virginia. Otelia was the 4th child of Linden Porter Maphis and Mary Sidney Francis Lockhart "Mollie".

Linden's parents were George Maphis and Ann or Anna Elizabeth Cline. He was the 6th of 7 children.

Mary Sidney Frances Lockhart's parents were General Robert Volney Lockhart and Mary Ellen Victoria Hall. She was the 10th of 11 children. There is quite a bit of information on General Lockhart, including an account of how he was killed.
Mary Ellen married Henry Jefferson Brill after General Lockhart's death. Her parents were Colonel James B. Hall and Margaret Rosenberger.

General Lockhart was the 3rd child and eldest son of Brigadier General Josiah Lockhart and his first wife, Nancy O'Dell. (I am related to you through Josiah Lockhart, but through his second wife, Elizabeth Caroline Triplett. We are rather distant cousins!) Josiah and Nancy had 12 children and Josiah and Elizabeth had 9 children. However, all of Josiah's children with Elizabeth were born before they were married, and while he was still married to Nancy.

but we have the same relationship to Major Robert Volney Lockhart and Margery Denny, the parents of Josiah Lockhart, their eldest son, and the 2nd of 5 children.

Margery was married before Major Lockhart to James Wilson and had 4 children with him. After his death she married Major Lockhart. I have yet to confirm but believe that he was also previously married and had at least 2 children, Robert and Margaret. I also believe, but have yet to solidly confirm that he had at least 2 brothers, Samuel and Josiah. We know that he lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and it seems possible that he came from Northern Ireland and his first wife's maiden name may have been Lyons.

There is a book of Denny genealogy that you may find very useful.

Margery Denny was the daughter of David and Margaret Denny. David was the son of William Denny and he was the son of Frederick Denny, who is also believed to have come from Northern Ireland. Margery is the daughter of Walter Denny and Margery. Walter was also the son of Frederick Denny.

My mother, Linda Wilson, is a great source for further information on these families as she has quite a bit if you are interested in this side of your family. her email is or you can email me at

Do you have any further information on the descendants of William Parrish?

My grandmother was Otelia Parrish Shaffer born in Va. I came across this while looking for my grandmothers sister's info. William was of course my GF. My mom (Fern) and Aunt Margaret (KIT) were Wm and Otelia's only children. My mom (Fern Virginia(Vernon) and my Aunt Kit ( Frank (Skip) Crawford)died back in 2010 & 2012 in PA. I remember Uncle Fred, Uncle Clarence ( Hilda & then Gertie), Aunt Ruth(William Called Winnie)- was a fireman in Catonsville MD and died right before xmas in a house fire trying to save a little girl) and Aunt Edit (John) well. I would spend many a week out at Uncle Clarences Farm. His 2nd wife was Aunt Gertie. His first was Aunt Hilda. I would spend a lot of time with Aunt Ruth too.Uncle Winnie died when I was 5yrs old.They had 1 child - still born. I remember Nettie being mentioned several times but knew nothing of her. My GF Wm. died well before I was born(1949).My GM had about 13 stokes from age 59 until she passed in Pa. My mom and Aunt Kit would take 6 mos at a time taking care of her until they had to put her in a nursing home.Yes they did live in Woodlawn. Otelia is buried in Woodlawn Cem. I believe the kids are too. The last time I was their it was not being maintained and I had to really hunt for the markers as they were covered with weeds due to no maintenance funding.Up until the mid 90's we held family reunions in Romacoke on the Eastern Shore at Betty and Andy's house on the water. We then began to lose many of the older fam. members and the younger ones did not want to carry it on.There are a bunch of us kids but have not kept in touch since the reunions stopped. I hope this helps you. I know many years ago Aunt Kit did a family quest and got so much info on the family. She and Uncle Skip went to and contacted the Mormon Temple out in I believe in Utah. She recovered tons of info.
