Moving on to a old "new" hobby

After many many years of enjoying genealogy research, I have done a lot of soul searching in the last 24 hours and have deceived that it is time for me to move on. I have enjoyed meeting so many “new” cousins and cousins-laws and many other genealogy researchers. I will always treasury the memories of each and everyone. My wife and my health has been going down hill for the pass two years. When I was a teenager I built the first of many radios at the age of thirteen and my first TV at the age…

Who is P309?

Is it possible to find out who P309 in the Parker Y-DNA project is?   I am assuming this is a person?  He was added to Family Group #17 and his oldest ancestor is Nicholas Parker 1755. I know this is a long shot but I am trying to get passed Nicholas.  I am sure there are privacy issues. Just wondering.

Samuel Parker 2nd Wife?

Samuel Parker Sr (1795 NC - 1865 Ark) of Parker DNA Group #7 was married at least twice.  We believe his second wife was named NANCY and she was born c. 1813 ... they had two daughters, Clementine b. 1853 in Miss. & Leander b. 1855 in Ark.  They are in the Ark census of 1860 & 1870 living in Pike Co Ark.

Today I received a message from another Ancestry.com member who wrote: "I think there is a high probability this is Samuel's 2nd wife! Found a marriage in Indiana of a…

FL/AL Parkers?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to trace my history, unfortunately I didn't have much to start with. Honestly, I can't get past the Great Grandparent's. Its like they drop off before that, no marriage or census records, nothing. My grandmother once told me that she thought my great great grandfather's name was Isaac, but I can't find anything to prove that. She also swore we were Indian  (I'm supposed to be 1/64) but again, I've not found anything to support any of that. I'm hoping someone can…
