Their children were Joseph, Samuel, *William, Elizabeth and John, the three elder of whom became clergymen, John died while a sophomore in Harvard College.

In 1708, Samuel and Joseph Parsons of Northampton, sons of Capt. John Parsons, were killed by the Indians while in the woods. On the 26th of July 1708, that year, seven or eight Indians attacked the house of Lieut. Wright at Skipmuck, in Springfield, and killed "old Mr. Wright," and Aaron Parsons and Barijah Hubbard—a couple of soldiers—knocked two children on the head, one of whom died, and took Henry Wright's wife captive, and probably killed her afterwards. Lieut. Wright and a daughter escaped.
