The family tradition:

"In 1832 (so the story goes) a woman and 5/6 children were traveling by wagon train from (?) to (?).  As they approacheed Overton Co., TN she noticed that her youngest child had contracted measles.  At their campground that night they camped near a barn belonging to a Miller family.  She asked if they would keep him because she did not want the other children to have them, and stated she would be back in just a few days.  She never came back.

"He was:  James Forrester Parrett, age 2, born February 3, 1830 in (?).
            
"A copy of Tennessee Records of Overton County Reference Docket 1818-1843, Historical Records Project, Official Project No. 65-44-1484 it states this:

"September 1842 court (page 52) (lines 3 & 4) G. M. Thompson to binding Boy 1.00"

"He was living in the household of Thompson in the 1850 census as well as a cherokee orphan named Tabitha West who was also "adopted" at that time.  Thompson and his first wife had no children.  They divorced and he later remarried and had several children."
