👋 Hi there, nice to meet all of you cousins.

Thank you Michael Parker for setting this all up. It's a pleasure to meet all of you cousins! I'm Barbara Tien. My grandmother married into the Parker family by wedding Ross Isaac Parker in Schenectady, New York, where he was a young engineer for General Electric in 1915 or so. His father, grandfather, and back generations were all Quakers who had come to Indiana and Ohio from North Carolina with the great Quaker migrations. I've found these stories fascinating precisely because they connect me…

Orlena O'Quinn Parker

I'm looking for any relatives of Orlena O'Quinn Parker who may have any knowledge of information she or her husband might have shared about  her sister, Cynthia Ann Parker, who lived with them for several years prior to her passing.  I'm researching Cynthia Ann's life while she was with the Comanche and her life after she was kidnapped for the second time by Sul Ross at Pease River.  Is there any oral or written history?  Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Long Lost Parker!

I hope this finds you well. I am James Parker. Direct descendant of the Parkers of Ashe County, North Carolina. For the past four years, I have been stuck at my fifth-great-grandfather, Jesse Parker (1805 NC- 1871 Ashe County, NC). He lived on in North Fork which is located in the Creston area of Ashe; directly next to Mountain City, TN. I have my ancestors accounted for from Jesse downward. Alas, I have not found Jesse's parents. Family tradition states that his father was a man named…
