William and Elizabeth Stones Jolly were reportedly the first Mormons to live in Parkman, Ohio. They moved from Fayette, New York, to Parkman in late 1831. Elizabeth preached to Noah Packard and gave him a copy of the Book of Mormon, which led to the conversion of Noah and his wife, Sophia Bundy, in early June 1832. Solomon Humphrey was subsequently called to preach in the Parkman area with Noah Packard in December 1832. While it is unknown how many people had joined the church in Parkman by April 1833, the number was apparently sufficient to warrant appointing Greene to oversee a branch there. According to his son, Greene moved his family to Parkman to fulfill this appointment. (“Synopsis of the Life and Travels of Noah Packard,” 1; Minutes, 5 Dec. 1832; Greene, “Biographical Sketch of the Life and Travels of John Portenus Greene,” 2.)
