I am a descendant of Sylvanus Stokes and his wife Mary Bishop. Sylvanus was born in 1636 in Charles City, Va. He died there in 1704. His father was William Stokes and HIS father was Christopher Stokes.
Sylvanus had 3 sons, Sylvanus, John and David.
These people are my family through my mother, who was a Rush. I have a mystery person on my Rush side and her name is Parilee Freeman, my gg grandmother. She was married to my gg grandfather, John Rush and lived in Old Fort, Tennessee, where my ggrandfather John Robert Rush was born in 1847.
Any help at all would be much appreciated. Imagine if my Stokes and Freeman ancestors had a connection!
