About Parnell's of South Carolina
Please sign in to see more.
When I started this site I wrote that this website is dedicated to the ancestors and  descendants of Charles Kesler (Kestler) Parnell and Theodosia Ann Almeata Moseley Parnell of  Timmonsville, SC.

But there are many more ancestors.  

In addition to Parnell’s and Moseley’s from SC, I’m also a descendant of Infinger’s (SC) and Etling’s (OH). I’m also researching my wife’s family; Corn (NC), Smith (VA), Kirk (MA) and  Sweeney(MA).  Of course, the further back you go the more Surnames you find. There are now over  2400 namesin this tree.

Our ancestors primarily immigrated from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Germany.   Through DNA testing I’ve learned that I am approximately 95% European and my DNA is 32% Irish,  27% Scandinavian,19% British, and 8% from the Iberian Peninsula (Spain & Portugal). The other  14% is divided between Italy, Greece, Western Europe (France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland,  Netherlands), Finland, Russia,Middle East and Africa.

Kathie is 100 % European with 43% Irish, 26% British, 15% Scandinavian, and 8% Italian/Greek.   The rest of her DNA comes from Finland/Northwest Russia, Western Europe, the Iberian Peninsula  and European Jewish. These are just estimates but it’s interesting to see where we come from.  I’ve alsomet, online or in person, several 3rd to 5th cousins through DNA .

I started gathering this information during the mid 1980's, have been seriously researching my family only the last few years. The information came from a number of sources, published and unpublished sources, government records, online databases, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and in-laws. There are bound to be mistakes. If you find one let me know.
