William Parker and Sarah Kennedy Parker of Cleves OH and Linn County Kansas

I've been stuck on this road block for about five years now and wondering if anyone might have any helpful information. I can trace my Parker line back to William Parker born in Ohio ca. 1833. He married Sarah J Kennedy in Cleves OH 1866 and shortly after their marriage they moved to Linn County Kansas. They had four children, Horace Sam Parker (my great great great grandfather), Rilla Parker, William J Parker, and Edgar R Parker.  The main problem I'm having is that on different censuses…

Genealogy of Rev. Hezekiah Vickers Parker ca 1810-1852

New to this site, still feeling my way around.  Also e-mailed this post to  mail@parkerheritage.ning.com with attached pedigree pdf chart.  The pdf is too large to attach here so I have extracted from it below. With family oral history and some on-line source docs (census, death certificates, etc.), I'm pretty confident back to my great grandfather Rev. William F Parker, son of Rev. Hezekiah V. Parker.  Past that generation, I relied mostly on other Ancestry.com trees, realizing how unreliable…

Merry Christmas and Happy New year.

It was right before Christmas in 1951 and the location was in Arkansas. It was a cold and windy night with a clear and star filled sky. A boy age six asked his mother if she needed some firewood and if so could he go get it. She knew that he wanted an excuse to go outside, she put on his coat, cap and gloves and opened the door for him and told him he could bring some firewood from the woodpile and add it to the wood piled on the porch. As he headed across the yard with Rusty, his dog, he…

Peter Parker 1802-1898, and Mary Francis Burke

I have 2 DNA matches that are direct descendants of Frank Hannibal Parker, 1871-1960, born in Orange Beach, Baldwin, Alabama, USA, died in Pensacola, FL.  Most family members have no idea who his parents were, as he and his bother were raised in Pensacola, FL by someone other than his immediate family.  His brother's name was Charles Colas or Cotas Parker.  

One person on ancestry.com has his father as Peter Parker 1802-1898, and mother as…

I have been researching the early Parkers of Pittsylvania County, Virginia for years and have had no dramatic breakthroughs in all that time.  But I recently purchased the 1782-1812 personal tax lists from Binn’s and the information was enlightening so I will share it here.  The tax list information is combined with deed information, and some other sources that…

Parker Family Question (Walas Ann/Joseph Charles)

I'm currently looking for more information about my Parker family. 

My great grandmother is Walas Ann Parker (born Sept. 26, 1889 in Pottsville, AR; died June 13, 1956 in Del Rio, TX). She married James Monroe Patterson (b Feb. 26, 1892 in Lamar Co. TX) on March 5, 1914 in Francis, OK. 

Her parents were Joseph Charles Parker (born April 9, 1857, died July 19, 1946) and Margaret Catherine Wells (born 1853, died Oct 24, 1900). I believe he was born in Charleston, SC and died in…

"Looking at that Ruby L, she is 15 in 1940, but listed as married. She is also listed as the sister-in-law to Henry Sheldon. Therefore she is the sister to Henrys wife Pearl. Her husband is not present - was he deployed at that point and she went…"

"Oh and, I had no idea we were related to the Caisons....although, it shouldn't suprise me. Caison, Parker, Mintz, and Fulford seem to be intertwined in that part of the outerbanks. "
