  • Name David C. Parish  [1
    Gender Male 
    Born 19 January 1828  [1
    Died 3 December 1864  Franklin, Williamson Co., Tennessee, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [2

    Alternate Death 5 December 1864  [1
    Military A small correction regarding David C. Parish, husband of Edith Drusilla Moffitt (b. 3/31/1840; d. 5/18/1868). Edith is the daughter of John Wesley Moffitt (b. 7/10/1819; d. 6/9/1893) and Drusilla Welker (b. 7/3/1821; d. 5/1/1827).
    I am the keeper of what my branch of the family calls “the Robert Moffitt Bible,” an M. Carey & Son published family Bible, purchased by Robert Moffitt around 1819.
    Written in that bible is the note: “David C. Parish was killed in the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee December the 3d 1864”
    At least according to our bible record, Clan Moffatt Genealogy incorrectly lists his death as December 5.
    The Battle of Franklin, TN concluded on the afternoon of November 30, so it is presumed that David C. Parish died three days after from wounds sustained in that fight.  [2
