I got this in a email yesterday from  Sheryl Robinson

a MUST share to Israel Parshall’s Descendants (which I am)

Look What I Just Found!!!!!
This morning my friend and I stopped at a restaurant in Wellsburg, NY, across the river from my cemetery and had breakfast.
On the wall were a group of old photos of historical significance to the area and the last one I spotted was a photo of Israel Parshall’s cabin that he built in 1787!!!!!
Thought you would like a photo of the photo. Notice the three men standing in front of the cabin and a little boy hanging out the window. Snell Road is just down the road a short distance from my cemetery.
Written in upper left hand corner: “Israel Parshall Sr. cabin was on the corner of Snell Road and Route 60.” Under the photo, built in 1787 in New Chemung, (an Indian settlement that was destroyed during the Sullivan and Clinton Expedition)
Upper right hand corner: is a photo of his headstone in our Riverside Cemetery in Lowman.
