Parkhurst-535 and Parkhurst-1 appear to represent the same person because: Hello, I'm a descendant of John Parkhurst (1691-1771). I created a new profile for him and for some reason your profile was not suggested. I can merge mine with yours. Let me know if you'd like to chat or see any sources.

I think this is the John Parkhurst of Chelmsford, MA.

The on-line entry for births in Chlemsford is John as son of Joseph and Eunice Parkhurst, 1 March, 1690/1. Joseph did wed Eunice Spaulding. The Chelmsford entry for Joseph Parkhurst is: m. Eunice Spaulden, 4: 9br: 1686. CTR. The database ":ag139" at ancestry's rootsweb has a lot of good data on these Parkhursts citing Peter G. Parkhurst's 2 Volume publication, Vol. 1, pg 31 for information on Abigail Howe - a Feb. 27, 1693, Concord, MA birth and Nov. 1, 1714 Plainfield, CT marriage to John Parkhurst. Ed Sanders at his website, has a lot of Howe family data, confirming Abigail's DOB and marriage to John in Plainfield. Thank you. D. Jenkins.
