  • Joseph was born ca 1779 in Massachusetts, from parents who remain unknown. The tree remains very incomplete, and a lot reconstruction work is still needed. In particular, the early generations are to be considered incomplete and unconfirmed. It is probable that this is a branch of the Parrotts from Lynn, Massachusetts. In the absence of a paper trail, it would take a YDNA match to show these are the same family, but neither family has been tested.

    The family's best known member is probably Joseph Robinson Parrott, for his key role in building the railroad to Key West, finished in 1912, while president of the Florida East Coast Railway. He died a year later. In 1915, the railroad was "extended" from Key West to Cuba via the use of freight ferries, one of which bore Joseph Robinson's name (photos below).

    The Florida East Coast Railway, founded by Henry Flager of Standard Oil, played a key role of opening the Florida east coast to development and enabled the rise of Miami as a major city. The railway to the Key West was damaged by a hurricane in 1935, and replaced by the Overseas Highway to Key West that is there today.

    45. Joseph Robinson Parrott (George Johnson3, James Silver2, Joseph Sr.1) was born on 30 Oct 1858 in Oxford, Oxford Co., Maine and died on 13 Oct 1913 in Oxford, Oxford Co., Maine at age 54.

    General Notes: Joseph R. Parrott (1859 - October 13, 1913)
    Joseph R. Parrott was born in Oxford, Maine on Oct 30, 1859. His father was a Maine woolen manufacturer. He graduated from Phillips Exeter. He was a graduate of Yale University Law School with and A.B. Degree and an LL.B degree. While his undergraduate record was undistinguished he graduated cum laude from Yale Law school. He was a member of the skull and bones society at Yale.

    Parrot wanted to work in Atlanta but chose Jacksonville when Atlanta didn't work out. He started as a lawyer for the Jacksonville, Tampa, Key West System in the law firm of Duncan Fletcher. In 1890 he became involved with Flagler. He was hired as a lawyer for the Flagler system. In 1892 he became vice-president of the short-line railroad and by 1899 he was vice-president and general manager of the Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railway. He later became a receiver for the railroad. His wife was Helen L. Mercer from New Haven Connecticut.

    He was also president of the Florida East Coast Hotel Company. Three years before Flagler's death he was named vice president of all Flagler corporations.

    In 1909 he became the president of the Flagler system after Flagler retired. Flagler urged the company to continue with Parrott in charge of the railway after his (Flagler's) death. Parrott was an active pallbearer at Flagler's funeral and received $100,000 in Flagler's will. He was one of the three trustees to carry out Flagler's will.

    Unfortunately, Parrott only lived a five months after Henry Flagler. He died of an illness while at his home in Maine. His early death became a rather difficult problem because of the amount of trust that Flagler had placed in Parrott. He was the executive head of Flagler's vision in Florida after Flagler's death.

    JOSEPH ROBINSON PARROTT, ' 83 and '85 L.

    Joseph Robinson Parrott, ' 83 and' 85 L., died suddenly from heart trouble in Oxford, Maine, on October 13. The son of George J. and Mary S. (Robinson) Parrott, he was born, October 30, 1858, at Oxford. Maine. He was prepared at Phillips Academy, Andover, and in college was captain of the Class Football Team, on the Class Crew, and was a member of the University Crew for six years. His societies were Delta Kappa, Hé Boulé, Delta Kappa Epsilon, and Skull and Bones. Upon graduation from the College, he entered the Yale Law School, where he was graduated two years later. He commenced his professional work in Jacksonville, Fla., and by 1888 had become counsel for the Jacksonville, Tampa & Key West Railroad. In 1890 he became associated with Mr. Henry M. Flager in the development of Florida resources by the introduction of the railroads, the building of towns and the creation of the largest hotel system in America. He was made vice president of the Florida & East Coast Railway and soon afterward undertook the building of the railroad across the water and the Florida Keys to Key West. On the completion of this immense engineering feat, his health was undermined, but through medical aid both in this country and abroad, his recovery was considered complete. After Mr. Flager's death, he acted as executor and trustee of his fortune, becoming president of the railway in 1909, and also of the Peninsula & Occidental Steamship Company, the Florida East Coast Hotel Company, the Fort Dallas Land Company, and the Model Land Company. He was also a director of two banks and one newspaper, chairman of the trustees of the Carnegie Library at Jacksonville and prominent in many other organizations. He married on October 2, 1886, Helen L. Mercer of New Haven, Conn., who with their daughter, survives him.

    J.R. PARROTT DIES ON VACATION
    Railway Associate of Late H.M. Flagler Is Stricken in Maine Camp.
    [By the Associated Press.]

    OXFORD, Maine, Oct. 13. -- J.R. Parrott, president of the Florida East Coast railroad, died in his summer camp here tonight of angina pectoris. During the day Mr. Parrott was apparently in normal health. He had been closely associated with the late H.M. Flagler in the railroad and hotel business.

    The InterOcean, 14 Oct 1913, p 9

    ===========================

    Joseph R. Parrott
    Another man on whom Flagler depended heavily in Florida was Joseph R. Parrott. Whereas Andrew Anderson was his closest personal friend, Parrott became perhaps his closest business associate. A native of Oxford,Maine, Parrott became interested in the South through his association with Georgia-born, S. Price Gilbert, one of his classmates at Yale. Parrott entered the Yale law school in 1883, graduating in 1885. He was very popular and won recognition both in scholarship and athletics. He was a member of the varsity crew and though usually a little over weight, he was very athletically inclined. During his years at Yale he heard his Georgia friend,
    Gilbert, comment most fondly and favorably upon the South, particularly Georgia. Parrott was soon captivated by these stories and before he graduated he made several attempts to find legal connections in Atlanta, but was unsuccessful. Gilbert had made his connections before he entered Yale, and was therefore in no position to extend Parrott an invitation to join him in a law part nership in the Georgia capital.

    "Polly" Parrott, as he was affectionately called, did not give up the idea of coming South, and with the help of Gilbert carefully studied the possibilities of the legal profession in several southern towns. Jacksonville was the final selection, mainly because of Duncan U. Fletcher, a young lawyer who lived there, whom Gilbert had known in undergraduate school at Vanderbilt University. After all, Jacksonville sounded as good as Atlanta to Parrott-he was mainly interested in coming South. The young lawyer arrived in Jacksonville in June, 1885, with very little more in his pocket than a letter of introduction which Gilbert had given him to Duncan Fletcher.

    Parrott gave early evidence of distinguishing himself in the law profession. His first experience with railroads came after he had practiced law for a short time when he was retained as attorney for the Jacksonville, Tampa, and Key West Railroad. Shortly afterwards the railroad became bankrupt and Parrot was appointed one of
    the receivers, doing an exceptionally good job in view of the fact the road was in such bad financial shape. In the early eighteen nineties he attracted Flagler's attention with his keen legal mind, his aggressiveness, and his ability to get things accomplished. Within a short time he was asked to join the Flagler enterprises as a lawyer.

    For many years Parrott served as the head of Flagler's legal department. He became one of Flagler's right hand men and as time passed he was given more and more authority. In 1899, he became a sort of executive officer for Flagler with the title of general manager, being given the responsibility of all the developments which were then under way. In this position he proved that he had no match as a master of detail. His executive ability was in a great measure responsible for the success of the East Coast undertakings.

    In a few years, Parrott was promoted to the vicepresidency; and then in 1909, when Flagler gave up the presidency of all of his enterprises and became chairman of the board, the presidential mantle fell upon the shoulders of Parrott. It was he, more than anyone else, who pushed the work on the overseas extension to a successful completion. Like Flagler, he knew no such word as failure. When Flagler died in 1913, Parrott remained as president of all the corporations and was at the same time made one of the three trustees of the estate. The Flagler-Parrott combination was a perfect functioning team, working as harmoniously as any two men could. Parrott's death came less than a year after that of his partner.

    Joseph Robinson Parrott
    By Charles E. Waterman

    It is trite saying, that the best products of Maine are her men and women.
    Certain it is, they are to be found in every state of our Union, to say nothing
    of lands beyond d the seas, and many of them have won success in various
    walks of life. One of these, the subject of this sketch, Joseph Robinson Parrott,
    has had a prominent part in one of the greatest and most picturesque engineering
    feats of the age.

    In the western part of the state is an irregular parcel of land given to Alexander
    Shepard, Jr. of Newton, in early days when the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
    was rich in land, but poor in purse, for making a map of the then District of Maine.
    It was called Shepardsfild Plantation. Mr. Shepard was, perhaps a better cartographer than colonizer, for he died insolvent. After his death quite a portion of the original grant was sold to Andrew Craigie, apothecary general of the Revolutionary War, whose home in Cambridge, the old Vassal house, is well known to tourists, as the headquarters of Washington during the siege of Boston, and later as the home of the poet Longfellow. He was an ambitious man and not only encouraged agriculture in his Maine domain but manufacturing. He dammed the outlet of Lake Thompson, put in grist and lumber mills, and had his dream of making woolen and cotton cloth. It is this connection that the subject of this sketch comes in.

    In 1792, Shepardfield Plantation was incorporated as the town of Hebron.
    In 1829, Hebron was divided, the western part becoming the town of Oxford.
    It was named in honor of the newly formed county in which it was situated,
    and which General David Learned, of Livermore, the first sheriff, christened
    after his old home in Massachusetts. Oxford contains the outlet of Lake
    Thompson and the village of Oxford, first known as Craigie's Mill, and where
    the woolen industry of the town is situated.

    Cloth-making began in Oxford as early as 1825, but was not in a prosperous
    condition continuously. Several of the mills burned and the personality of
    the firms operating them changed several times. About 1850, Joseph
    Robinson, a native of Hunslett, England, and expert dyer, took an interest in
    the business, and from that day to the present it prospered.

    Mr. Robinson had not only followed his trade in England before coming to
    America, but also in Germany. He had a large family of children, born in the
    several countries in which he had resided. It was his joke that he had Englishmen,
    Germans, and Americans in his family, to say nothing of one daughter who nationality he did not know, having been born on the high seas. His oldest daughter, Mary, married George J. Parrott, and overseer in his mills, and their eldest son Joseph, born October 30, 1858, is the subject of this sketch.

    Young Parrott's childhood was passed in the environment of a New England manufacturing village of half a century ago. He played about his grandfather's mill, and as a result of early investigation with machinery, carried one finger with the final phalange missing to the grave. He went to the village schools, The educational advantages were those of the "Little red schoolhouse" (It was a brick structure in Oxford). The curriculum consisted mostly of the three R's. Thoroughness was the prevailing note. Pupils could not help being thorough, for each term they began at the preface of their text-books and continued until the close of the term, the amount covered depending largely on the length of the term. There was no choice of subjects. It was the same thing over and over.

    Some excellent teachers occupied this little brick schoolhouse, and one of them was, perhaps, of greater assistance to rural schools in Maine, and to young Parrott, than any other man --Sidney Perham, one time governor of the state. The free high school law, whereby every little village can have its high school, was a pet scheme of his.

    Oxford was among the first towns to adopt the free high school system, and the first high school was opened in the fall of 1875. Mr. Parrott and the writer were among the students. The fathers and mothers of the town were some time in deciding what studies the new high school would teach. Some thought it was simply and extension of the common school system to which a pupil of any degree of proficiency might attend; and others that it should be devoted entirely to higher studies. Some thought it should be a fitting school for college, and others that its course of study should be wholly English. As there were but few pupils in town fitted to enter a high school of any sort, there was a compromise. Several classes of grammar grade were formed and those who desired to study anything higher
    were permitted to do so. It was several years before anything like regular
    courses of study were arranged or the terms of admission agreed upon.

    Teachers fitted for high school positions were not as numerous ten as now,
    and sometimes instructor outside the regular corps of teachers were employed
    for special studies. Dr. John Dearborn Holt was the first principal, and when
    the first class in Greek was formed, Rev. George A. Lockwood, pastor the
    Congregational Church in the village, was instructor. Dr. Holt, then a medical
    student, was an enthusiastic teacher, and greatly desired to send a class of
    boys from his school to college. Rev. Mr. Lockwood, was a scholarly man, a
    graduate of Yale University, and the influence of these two men inclined young
    Parrott toward a liberal education.

    Things did not run smoothly in the new school, however. Before establishment,
    it was decided to house it in a more pretentious building; but the choice of the
    site made trouble. There were several available lots, but each near resident
    preferred to have the building and its restless occupants somewhere else.
    The result was that the site finally chosen was seized in disregard to the
    wishes of the owner, Miss Frances Norton. It resulted in a law suit and
    victory for the owner. That broke up the school until the matter of school
    building could be adjusted.

    This interruption caused Parrott to continue his studies at Hebron Academy,
    at that time the natural school center for Oxford county. Later he went to
    Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts, where he remained until he entered
    Yale University in 1881.

    Parrott attained a fair rank in college and took some part in athletics. He
    pulled an oar of the boat's crew in their annual regatta with Harvard on the
    Tames during this third year. Socially he was liked, and was a member of
    several college society at the university. It may be of interest to note that
    during the time he was at Yale, William H. Taft, future president of the United
    States, was a student, although not a member of Mr. Parrott's class.

    On graduating, he took up the study of law, remaining two years more in New
    Haven in the university law school. On receiving his degree of Bachelor of law,
    he was admitted to the bar of his native county in 1887, but had but one case at
    Paris, the shire town of Oxford County.

    In the fall following his admission to the bar, he entered the office of the late
    Honorable Charles F. Libby in Portland; but in a few months time he hung out
    his shingle in Jacksonville, Florida, where he found his life work.

    At the time of Mr. Parrott's settlement in Jacksonville, Florida was just awakening
    to modern life. A large part of the state was unsettled and given over to pine
    barrens and scrub palmetto hummocks. Most of the large cities we now know
    were unborn. Railroads were only penetrating the northern part of the state.
    The winter tourist was just invading the region around Jacksonville and St.
    Augustine, but they were of the kind to advertise the beauteous of climate
    and situation. Harriet Beecher Stowe had built a cottage among the pines
    and written a book describing the beauties of a winter near Ponce De Leon's
    fountain of youth. Those who were old, those who ill, and those whose blood
    the northern frosts and snows congealed should go the Florida, and in a short
    time an innumerable throng began to start each autumn for the land of flowers.

    Among the first clients of the law firm Mr. Parrott was connected with was the
    Jacksonville, Tampa & Key West Railroad Company, a John the Baptist railroad,
    their locomotives crying, or rather screeching, in the wilderness. A pioneer
    railroad, or a pioneer anything, does not have easy time. The penetrate a
    land where business is yet in embryo. The Jacksonville, Tampa & Key West
    Railroad was no exception and it was soon forced into receivers hands. Mr.
    Parrott was the receiver. He did his best to put the road on a paying basis,
    but it was a long time investment and it needed capital furnished by some
    one who had faith in the future of Florida.

    At about this time amid the winter birds of passage was General Henry M.
    Flagler, a man rich with the profits of Standard Oil but poor in health. He
    was anxious to exchange the dividends of that Croesus enterprise for health,
    and the sub-tropic sun and gulf breezes brought it. A land which restored
    health was worth cultivating. A man would give all he possessed for health,
    therefore exploitation must be profitable. Such must have been the thoughts
    which passed through General Flagler's brain, so he was ready to purchase
    this bankrupt railroad when approached by Mr. Parrott with a proposition to
    invest and assist in developing one of the best states in the Union.

    General Flagler was a host in himself. His bank account alone was sufficient
    to develop this land of sunshine, and his will was a good as his financial ability.
    Dreams floated through his brain, not only of railroads, but steamships, palatial
    hostelries and new cities. He needed a lieutenant, and he chose Mr. Parrott,
    who had already had some experience in taming the wilderness and making it
    blossom like the rose; so he left his Blackstone to grow dusty on the shelves
    to take up the more active life of hotel, railroad and steamship manager,
    colonizer and builder of cities.

    The first part of General Flagler's dream was easy of fulfillment, if provided
    with an ample pocketbook, but there comes an end to the dreams and it l
    ooked as if the end of Flagler's had come when the far point of the Florida
    Coast, where ocean and gulf clasp hands had been reached. But it did not
    appear so to General Flagler. His fancy skipped from key to key out into the
    blue gulf until Key West was reached. How the intervening space of water
    was filled with concrete archways is a tale that has been many times told, and
    each time the wonder grows. Tunneling mountains becomes commonplace
    beside this giant bridge, the supervision of which was the privilege of Mr. Parrott.

    Perhaps a summary of the construction of this road may be permissible here. It
    extends from Jacksonville to Key West. The entire distance is about 520 miles.
    The first 394 miles is along the east coast of Florida (hence the name, East Coast
    Railway), then it leaves the main land to skirt the line of keys extending to the
    southern terminal, a distance of 126 miles. Of this section, 74 miles is over land,
    25 miles is through swamps, and 29 over water. Of the roadbed, 97 miles was
    grade over land, 23 miles embankment through water, and about six miles of concrete arch and steel span work. The material used was 176,900 cubic yards of crushed rock, 106,100 cubic yards of sand, 286,800 barrels of cement, 5,760 tons of reinforcing steel, and 612,000 lineal feet of piling. The average cost per mile for building this extension was $95,000.

    This dream was not the first of General Flagler's visions. It was the climax of a series of dreams. Materializing these visions took decided and untiring energy. So severe was the work that Mr. Parrott lost his health. He was much younger man than Flagler. The work was pushed strenuously that the older man might see the fulfillment of his dreams. He did see the fulfillment--the Promised Land-- but barely, and Mr. Parrott survived him only by a few months.

    During his active live, he took few vacations. Each autumn, he spent a few days in his boyhood home; but with failing health he was forced to take more frequent and longer breathing spells. It was a dream of his boyhood to visit the Old World, but the demands of his vocation were so strong, that it was put off until sickness made a change of environment advisable; but the pleasure of the trip was thereby greatly diminished.

    Lake Thompson was one of the attractions of his boyhood. He sailed its surface,
    swam in its depths, and camped on its islands. One of the latter--Megquier Island--he bought in his later years, connected it with neighboring islands and the main land by bridges and erected a beautiful summer home. This island comprising some fifty acres, was named after Edward Megquier, firs owner and also first settler in that part of Poland (in 1790) on a strip of highland adjacent to the lake opposite to the island, and now known as Megquier Hill. Tradition has it that it was cleared of the heavy forest which covered it in 1815, during the three years of famine which Maine suffered from extremely cold weather. It was planted to corn the next year and by reason of the vapor arising from the water, the crop was saved from frost and matured, the only corn to ripen in the vicinity. To this island he came each summer for the last year or two of his life, and it was here that he died, October 13, 1913, at an age of a few days less than 55 years.

    His body was carried to Florida for interment. He loved Oxford, but his life had been spent in Florida, and it is there he wished to rest finally. He was greatly missed there. No newspaper was too obscure not to contain an editorial or biographical notice of his passing, and the prominent ones devoted pages to his memory and accomplishments. His name was coupled with Flagler's. They were called the two great Floridians, although neither were a native of the state.

    Mr. Parrott married Helen Mercier, of New Haven, who survives him, and he had a daughter, Helen, who married Gordon R. MacDonald of New York.

    ===========================================
    A MASTER MIND, By Chas. E. Jones, in Dixie

    The sudden death of Joseph R. Parrott will result in many business and political changes in Florida. For years it was his master mind that directed the affairs of the East Coast Railroad - it was his master mind that directed the affairs of the world famed east coast hotels - it was his master mind that operated newspaper plants devoted to the special interest, and his master mind that controlled the peculiar politics of a peculiar political faction in this State.

    It was his power to spend enormous sums in campaigns to further the interests of the men whom he could control - to elect men who could be used to serve the special interests. It was Joseph R. Parrott who directed the Times-Union and other Florida newspapers which were owned by the Florida railroads in conjunction or exclusively by the East Coast Railroad.

    With the death of Parrot what great changes will be made in the great railway company? What will become of the other papers which received all their orders from Parrott?

    If the Southern Railway buys the East Coast Railway then the Southern may not keep the newspaper end. Mr. Parrott loved politics and he loved to reward his personal friends. He believed in the doughbag. He was a Republican, but he rejoiced when he could lead men who proclaimed the Democratic faith. Then, too, J.R. Parrott was a man of strong personality. He had hundreds of warm friends. He was naturally more interested in political success than any man would be who might take his place.

    But in holding the reactionary Democrats together there is no man who can take the place of Joseph R. Parrott. He will be missed by that army of would-be-leaders who went to him for the coin to conduct campaigns - who operated under his advice and direcion.

    J.R. Parrott was a wonderful man. Flagler had his millions, but his millions were more forceful because there were the brains of Parrott. Flagler knew Parrott and trusted him. Flagler himself always listened to him.

    It was Parrott who was more the developer than Flagler. The millionaire gathered his gold from the profits of the Standard Oil Company which he had helped to organize while Parrott blazed the way for development.

    Flagler had the millions and Parrott the brains. It was Parrott's brain that pushed the line to Key West - Parrott's brain that has kept up the wonderful organization.

    Flagler died a few months agao, and the State knew that Parrott still lived, and nothing would be disturbed.

    Now Joseph R. Parrott is dead, and no one lives that can take his place in the running of a railroad - running great hotel resorts- running newspapers and holding a political faction together - doing all these and conducting various other enterprises.

    Florida's development will not suffer through Parrott's death, because Parrott has demontrated what can be done in this State along commercial lines.

    Florida's politics, through his death, will be purified. The doughbag in future campaigns will be smaller and there will be a break in the rank of the army of men who "got theirs."

    Men who obtained office by Parrott's "o.k." are at sea - men who found his generous heart the means of sustenance are in gloom.

    Joseph R. Parrott was a great man in many respects. To his opponents he smiled. He planned well and arranged to do the most effective work from the most unexpected sourch. That accomplished much good no one denies - that he was the instrument of much wrong is self-evident.

    A republican all his life, he led the reactionary Democratic forces of Florida. Flowers were showered upon his grave by those who loved him best. His home life was beautiful and his name will long live in Florida's history. If his death means the death of the Times-Union or a change in politics, then the inscrutable wisdom of the the Divine Ruler will be followed by the exclaim: "God works in a mysterious way his wonders to perform."
