  • To all Parkers in Family Group #1! I have a Facebook Group for our Parkers! Too much to discuss here. Please contact me for more info. Thanks!
    • Kathy, I'm descended from Elisha Parker, the Quaker, b. c. 1725, died 1806 in Wayne County, NC. I'm following my kinsman, also descended from Elisha, who is test P411, into Family Group #1. May I join this Facebook group?
  • Hello,
    I am a direct descendant of Elijah Parker and Margaret Ann Jenkins (Peggy) . Through their daughter Margaret Ozinia Parker (Zina). She married William Deese. He is buried at The First Baptist Church of Pageland, SC, Chesterfield County. He died in 1900. She went to live with her daughter, Martha Deese, my great grandmother and her husband, Joshua Hinson in Rock Hill, SC, York County. They are buried at Laurelwood Cemetary there. I am trying to find the indian from the Parkers. If they were from Bertie County NC then more than likely it is Tuscarora, which is Iroquois. Any idea who Margaret Ann Jenkins parents were ? Thanks
    • Hi Don!
      I'm sorry, but I just now saw your post a year late. I haven't been getting notifications for a long time. I just posted that I have a Facebook group for our Group #1 Parkers, and we have a genetic genealogist who is analyzing our dna. Please let me know if your are interested!
  • My father John Odessa Parker was born in 1921 and raised in Milam County Texas. I do not know anything about his mother, Edna maiden name, possibly Sparks, possibly Hargit! I was always told that she was adopted by a preacher when she was little! My mom apparantly had seen my grandmothers father and she always said he was indian! My dads father was Wade Parker but I do not
    know anything else about my Parker Family!
    • Hi Johnny!
      Do you know that you are in Parker Group #1? If you do not know which group you are in, a Y-DNA test, will help find out. Please contact me for more details.
  • I just recently discovered my Parker line of Sarah Ann Parker b 1832 Gates Co., NC m 1849 James Taylor b 1828. I was intrigued by the church pictured on your face page. It looks like an English church. Does anyone have any information about it? Or about my Gates Co., NC Parkers? Thanks so much!
    • Shirley, that is the Kirby Hill, North Yorkshire church in England. We are in Parker Y-DNA Family group #1. We have a Y-DNA match from that town in England.
  • My family is bound and determined to be related to someone notorious and when it wasn't Quanah, they now want it to be Bonnie Parker. According to my Great aunt Hattie my Ggrandpa used to claim to be first cousins. Can't be. My Ggrandpa was Henry Jess Parker son of John Wesley and Ann Short Parker. Any one so me evidence yah or nah. I am thinking nah but they will need the proof. Tanks for all the help.
  • I had my DNA analyzed through the Genographic Project (Geno 2.0). The haplogroup, according to this is R-Z287. FTDNA has it as R-CTS8277, or R1a1a1b1a3b2. I had my Y-chromosome sequenced back in 2004 (Parker Family DNA Project, Group#1, P20) but didn't get haplotyping.
