Our Perchment Ancestors:
The Perchments we come from began with Peter Perchment (also spelled Parchment, Perchmant, Parchman) was born about 1755. He was one of three brothers (Peter, John, Phillip). It is believed that a Nicholas was their father, all coming from Germany. Peter seemed to be the only brother which used the Perchment spelling.
Peter joined the army in 1777 and fought in a number of battles in the revolutionary war. He was wounded and later received a pension from Virginia. He had a large family of twelve children. He died 12 Feb 1844 and was buried in the Buelah Presbyterian Church cemetery.
A more in depth history compiled by Dr. Lonnie Gerald Parchman is a part of some email/email lists from Apr 1998, originally written in October 1976
