John is buried at the New Bethel Church Cemetery in Parnell, Wayne County, Ky.

He was born at Elizabeth, N.J., and enlisted in Wilkes County, N.C., in 1778 as a substitute for his father during the Revolution.

After the war he moved to Tennessee, to Hawkins County, where he stayed about eight years. He lived in Claiborne County for four or five years and then moved to Kentucky, to the Wayne County hollow known as Parmleysville, where he stayed about 20 years. He also lived in Russell and Clinton counties. He spent a year in Missouri and then came back to Kentucky, living in Russell and Clinton counties.

That's great-great-great-great-grandson Allan Ray Parmley [Randolph Hay, Roland Duvall, Miles, Emerson Bell, Garner, John, Giles, Hiel, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, John, John] who donated this picture.
