Isaac Parker served as Lt. in the Kentucky Militia in 1801.  Captain of the Regiment was his brother-in-law John Jones.  Isaac and Nancy and their family left Kentucky around 1806 for Tennessee.  The family resided in Lincoln County (1800-16).  Later, members moved to Alabama then to Hardeman County, Tennessee and then to Bibb County, Alabama.  in the 1830's many in the family headed west and settled in Leake County, Mississippi.

After Their marriage, the family lived near the Greenville-Laurens County border.  They lived near Little Horse Creek, a branch of the Reedy River and very near Nancy Jones Parker's sister, Mary Jones Story, wife of John Story.

About 1796-7 Nancy Jones and Isaac Parker and family moved from South Carolina to western Kentucky where they first settled in Christian County, Kentucky.  Many families moved to western Kentucky at the same time, securing land grants averaging 200 acres or more.  Among these were Nancy Jones Parker's sister, Mary Jones Story and her brothers, John Jones, Jesse Jones, and Samuel Jones.  Her mother Lydia Jones Fowler, and stepfather, Richard Fowler, Jr., as well as half-brother and sisters, moved also, but settled near Nashville in Davidson County, Tennessee.

Notes for NANCY JONES:

Moved with family members to Christian County, Kentucky (1797).  The area became Livingston County in 1799 and Caldwell County in 1809.

NOTE: Thanks to Randall T. Jones, gggg grandson of John Jones who was the Captain of the Regiment of the Kentucky Militia in 1801.  Mr. Jones shared his treasure of knowledge of the early Parker family with Harold Gene Parker of Mena, Arkansas who then shared it with his cousin Frances Ann Parker.
