Parents/family of John Franklin Parker, born abt. 1849 in Leslie-DeSoto, Sumter County, GA

So far I seem to have found numerous Parker families in GA but none of them are related to John F. Parker. That is, the John Franklin Parker who married Mary Jane Savage (1860-1960) in Dec. 1879 in Okeechobee, FL or it may have been Brevard County, FL.  Those two are my g-great grandparents. Their daughter was Drusilla Parker born Oct. 1880. Later came Lewis, John, and Barney. Drusilla was my great grandmother. With some of those details I'm looking for the mother and father of John Franklin…

Parkers in Maine

Hi everyone, I am researching my husband's lineage. He just found out he is a Parker after all these years thinking he was a Pillsbury. The Y DNA sealed the deal. We match Group #10 with all 37 markers but haven't been able to make the connection. We just found out a few weeks ago that his great grandfather John Franklin Pillsbury changed his name from Parker. He was born in Dexter, Maine in 1860. When he was 2 years old, both his parents died and he was raised by Joseph M. Jordan and Sarah…
