Elvis B. Parker

This is the name of my great-grandmother's father.  She said his middle name was Bledsoe.  Of course, she also said he was found floating down a river clinging to a board...and she's also stated that her mother came here on a wagon from a reservation, but I don't think my research has concluded that.  My granny liked her Natty Light. According to the 1880 Federal Census: Elvis Parker Dover, Stewart, Tennessee, United States Age: 9; Marital Status: Single; Relation to Head of House: Son This…

My husband's great grandmother (his…

Anson Parker

My grandfather is James Alfred Parker born in Crawford County AR in 1921.  He was part Cherokee and he stated he was listed on the rolls but my Mom never got a chance to go search all the microfilm for his number.  He is now deceased and I have traced back several generations:  Irvin Parker, William Jasper Parker, Andrew Jackson Parker, and am stuck at Anson Parker married to Olivia Hatfield.  City historical records indicate Andrew Jackson was orphaned at age 10 in Morgan County, Tennesse…
