Samuel Parker, Thomas Parker, Shipwright, and William Parker in Pasquotank Co., NC: 1740's

The first records I have of Elisha Parker and Elizabeth his wife, that are associated with a specific place, are from 1761.   In the Minute Book of Perquimans County, the will of Ichabod Boswell of Perquimans is shown as probated 25 Mar 1761, witnessed by Elisha Parker, John Henby, and Rachel Boswell. [Winslow, Original wills found among the loose papers in Perq., page 450.]  A very interesting record, because 12 years later, Elisha’s oldest child and daughter, Clarkey Parker, will marry Thomas…See More

Estate of Elisha Parker, Wayne County, NC

I mentioned in the previous blog the accounting for the sale of Elisha Parker's personal property on the 6th of the 12th month 1806 in Wayne County, NC, administered by Isaac Parker.  Isaac's role as administrator causes me to believe that Isaac was the eldest son of Elisha.  Especially since Nathan Parker and Jesse Parker appear in the accounting, and these are the names of the two sons of Elisha (identified as such by the Quaker records of their marriages) , who could have administered the…See More

How did you hear about Parker Heritage?
I found an old link on Wynette Parks Hauns site and googled to find the current site.
What is your interest in the Parker family?
I'm descended from Elisha Parker who married Elizabeth ___________, and whose daughter Clarkey Parkerb. 1754 m. Thomas Henby in 1773 (Perquimans Monthly Meeting). Thomas & Elizabeth's other children were Peninah b. 1756 m. Jesse Hall, Elizabeth b 1759 m. GNU Cook, Sarah b. 1761 m. Luke Woodard, poss. Isaac b. 1764 m Elizabeth Albertson, Mary b. c. 1771 m. Elijah Coleman, Jesse b. c. 1772 m. Ann Horn, Thomas b. 1778 m. Anna Peele, Nathan b. c. 1785 m. Sally Outland. The Parkers first appear in the records of the Pasquotank MM, move to the Perquimans MM about 1770, and then to Dobbs/Wayne Co (Contentnea MM) about 1778 - 1780. I've not found any mention of Elisha's parents in the Quaker records, so perhaps he was a Quaker by conversion, not by birthright?

There is another Parker Quaker family centered around the Rich Square MM in Northampton family. They marry into some of the same families, and move to Indiana at about the same time.

In 1790, my Elisha Parker appears on the census in Wayne County. There are two Elisha Parkers in Gates County, one in Chowan county, one in Bertie County, one in Rockingham County, one in Perquimans County, and a Elisha Parker Junior and senior just across the border in Cheraws District, South Carolina. I'm hoping to find out if my Parkers are related to the Parkers on this site.

ELisha Parker c. 1725 - 1807, of Pasquotank, Perquimans, Wayne and Richmond Counties, NC - Quaker

Elisha Parker, a Quaker, was the father of Clarkey Parker, who married Thomas Henby (my line). 

Elisha Parker was b. say 1725.  He married say 1753, Elizabeth _______.  There is an early DAR application that showed her as Elizabeth Peele, daughter of Robert & Elizabeth Peele.  Robert Peele was b. Nasemond County, Virginia d. Rich Square, Northamp-ton County NC.  This line has since been red-lined, with the comment that Robert’s will names his daughter as Elizabeth…

Jan,  Take a look at an old post made by Gail Parker Williams about the Parker's in the Anson & Richmond County N.C. area.  She is commenting to Kathy Jo Bryant.  She talks about an Elisha & Stephen Parker.  She seems to know a lot about the Parker's in this area.

Jan,   My Parker's were living about 20 miles north of your Parker's on the west side of the Pee Dee River at the same time.  My People branch off of Nicholas Parker who was 19 when he came into the area in 1774 and bought a lot of land in the Burnsville area to farm.  Later my people crossed over the river at Grassy Island to a community called Mount Pleasant in present day Richmond County.  I am not sure if my Parker's were Quaker I have never seen it mentioned.  I also see no immediate connection with your people.  I wonder if they knew about each other?  There is a book in the reference library in Wadesboro, N.C. about Nicholas Parker's Family.  I need to go back and look through it again.  I'll update you if I find anything new.

Sorry for the lengthy post but that is what I have been going on.  Elihu was my GGGgrandfather.  I have not seen any 'solid' link between Elihu and any of the North Carolina Parkers.

Valena Lillard Parker wrote she had spoken to Boyce Parker, Lee
Nettles and Mrs. Bernice Morgan and all gave the same account
in their own way, which ties in with the census records of 1860
Amite Co., MS. Two brothers and a Parson family came into the
area from North Carolina traveling together, and settling in
Amite County, MS. The story was told them by their older
relatives. Accourding to Boyce Parker, who had talked with John
H. Parker of Liberty, MS., the Parkers came to America with
William Penn to Pennsylvania. They were Quakers. They got a
grant of land near Philadelphia from the king. Later they
settled in Raleigh, NC.,then came to MS. Grandpa's people
settled north of Mars Hill. The Parsons and Parkers settled
abouth the same time. They didn't believe in slavery, but did
believe in Stat

I have getting my DNA tested on the todo list.  I have guessed at my family group based on others tests and known familial relations.  What I do know (at least think I know) was a report by someone else based in part on something my grandfather had related to this individual doing research.  I will follow this message up with what I have gathered elsewhere.  The trail stops for me (and other researchers) when the family comes to Mississippi from North Carolina.  You can imagine my excitement reading your post about Quaker Parkers in North Carolina.

Hello, Jan Pranger -

Concerning the array of Parkers in Gates Co. NC;  FG#7 Parkers include the family of Elisha Parker who married Penelope Dildy/Dilday there in the early 1800s. I have never noted anything in their family history about being Quaker, but they may have been inactive. They moved to Hertford and lived near Ahoskie for decades. That Elisha Parker was a cooper and a farmer.   After their deaths there, many of their descendants left for Texas.   

This Elisha may be at least one Parker in the area who can be checked off your list.  If you would like more information on him, please advise on My Page this site.

Jan,  I am Gail Parker Benson from Richmond County, N.C.  I was so delighted to see you mention Richmond Co. in your post.  I was starting to feel like I am out there on a branch of my own.  I am the art curator at the Rankin Museum of American Heritage and I have been researching early churches in the area.  There is a Quaker cemetery on the Pee Dee River at Hailey's Ferry where there was a Quaker settlement and Meeting (Pee Dee Meeting). I have listed below Parker Quakers from a local written book about early churches in this area: 

Thomas Parker <1785->1814 Married Anne Peele  <1785->1814

Thomas's parents:  Elisha & Elisa Parker /  Anne's  Passco & Tabitha Peele

Thomas's & Anne's children:

Elizabeth   Born 3/11/1806  Died 11/23/1810

Jesse  Born 8/13/1808   Died  ??

Penninah   Born 12/25/1803 Died 12/27/1805

Sarah  Born 5/3/1813  Died  ??

Selah  Born  5/24/1811  Died ??

(looks like Thomas had a brother named Nathan Birth <1778 Died >1802)

  Elisha Parker Born <1786 Died >1804

I hope these are your people and help you in some way.
