    "Parley Johnson, a native of Tolland, Conn., came to Windham in 1811. He was a blacksmith by occupation. It is related that when he was moving from the East "he lost a horse and harnessed himself to the side of the remaining horse and drew the load until he could procure another." He settled on the Wappasening near Shoemaker's mill. He was thrifty and performed his part faithfully and well in the new settlement. He reared a large family and died, 1873, aged 88. He married in Connecticut, Lucia Webster. Their children and marriages follow: Lucia to James Finch; James M. to Jane K. Walker; Minerva to Peter Pierce; Almena to Daniel Shoemaker; Harriet to Augustus L. Smith; Caroline to Thomas W. White; Jefferson to Charlotte Briggs; Eliza A. to Lemuel Olmstead; Ellen to James Park; Parley to Eliza Manchester; Charles to Sally Osborn."
