I can not figure out who his father is. If anyone can help me with this, it would greatly appreciated.

Elizabeth Frye is…

I'm trying to trace my family in a sort of backwards manner. I do not know anything about my fathers family. I have oil royalties from the Parker family and have to start there and more forward down the tree. Any one with any information they could share would be greatly appreciated.
