  • Wayne the St Helena, and St Tammany Parish of Louisiana list Jesse Parker, Benjamin Parker, William Parker, Robert Parker, Isaac Parker who married Mary Nolen, YDNA #7, William Nolen who is related to Mary Nolen, and Benjamin Anderson who married Eurydice Parker. This is a work in progress. Also of note some people have Robert Parker marrying Priscilla Riddick. The Parker YDNA #7 did have some connecrtions to Riddicks but need further proof that the Robert Parker in South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Louisiana, and possibly Mississippi is our man and that he could have married a Riddick, but who was his wife. Our Robert did not die in North Carolina, that Robert never left North Carolina.
    • Steven, the Robert Parker that may have married Priscilla Riddick is the son of Richard Parker III. The Robert Parker that I am talking about is the son of Daniel Parker who is the son of Richard Parker III. So the Robert Parker the father of Jesse,Benjamin.William and Eurydice Parker is son of Robert Parker, the grandson of Daniel Parker and the great-grandson of Richard Parker III.
      • Wayne, looked at the Robert Parker deeds in Franklin County, Georgia and there are 3 dates in one of the records and 2 dates in the other I believe. Date the record made 1796, date it was sworn by someone 1797, date it was recorded 1797. The other record has 1799 made and 1800 either sworn and recorded or both. There are 2 records in 1796 with Robert Parker as a witness to the first record and a participant in the second record, both made 26th of June 1796. Isaac Parker shows up 1799 and 1800 Kentucky one in Skin Frame, Livingston County, Kentucky. The other Christian County, Kentucky, probably same person.
        • Steven,
          Yes I do believe after all the years we have the correct information that connects Robert Parker to his sons and daughter plus his brothers and then to their father (another) Robert Parker and his father Daniel Parker and his father Richard Parker III who died about 1749-1750.
      • History of Caldwell County, Kentucky I believe formed in 1807. Christian County, Kentucky parent county of Livingston County, and Livingston County, Kentucky parent county of Caldwell County, Kentucky. Robert Parker of Franklin County, Georgia had a deed with Joseph Box of Franklin County, Georgia. There is a Joseph Box in Christian County, Kentucky probably the same person in Franklin County, Georgia. There is an Isaac Parker in Christian County, Kentucky in a different year from Isaac Parker in Water Course Land Skin Frame, Livingston County, Kentucky. Probably the same Isaac Parker. The Skin Frame Parkers are Robert, Benjamin, William, Isaac and Jesse Parker. I think Abraham Anderson and Joseph Box are also Skin Frame. Isaac Parker is listed earlier in Livingston County, Kentucky than the other PARKERS. There are many Parkers in Christian, Livingston, and Caldwell County, Kentucky. Charity Parker Jones sent her son Tignal Jones to Franklin County, Georgia to see about her brother either James or William Parker Probate, Will Record. Charity Parker married Arthur Jones. Charity Parker father Simon Parker, Simon Parker father Francis Parker, and some people have Francis Parker father as Thomas Parker. Simon Parker may be YDNA7 as well but do not know. There is a great amount of information about William or James Parker Estate, many of his brothers and sisters listed and where these people lived as the probate was divided. I think there are Box in the Nansemond, Virginia and Gates, North Carolina area. All for now, getting much closer. Thank you everyone for all your great research. More later.
        • In my tree, I have Robert Box, b. 3 Nov 1691, Warrosquoke, Isle of Wright, VA. d. 1735, Laurens, SC. His line eventually came thru GA and to St. Clair County, AL when it encompassed a large share of Northeast Alabama. I have additional relatives if helpful. Mike
