John Parker - Kentucky and Ohio (1795-1869)


My husband is a Parker and am doing research on his family.  He has very strong roots in Oregon, but any information prior to the family migrating there is where I am getting stuck.  Am not able to find any information on the following relative or any family members prior.  I see that he was in Kentucky, but as I understand records were lost in the War of 1812.  If anyone has insight into this relative and those prior to him, I would be very appreciative if you would share your information with me.  Thanks in advance.

  • I believe he is part of the Peter Parker group from Maryland .Interested in comparing DNA.
  • I also hit a brick wall with John Parker, I am descended from his son Nelson B. Parker . Hope we can find a link.
  • Thank you, Mike. Have been able to do quite a bit of research on for much of his family, but the Parker line has me completely stuck. I may need to try and persuade him to have his yDNA tested. :)
  • With our occupational surname, the haystack is huge! A yDNA match narrows your research focus. I found my immigrant with DNA even though I cannot complete my tree with a paper trail. This means I focus only on my unique group of genetic cousins now. Family Tree DNA in Dallas TX has a Father’s Day sale! I have no financial incentive involved. Just a useful clue to break your brick wall. Mike
  • Hi Mike: Thank you for adding me to this site. I just found it over the weekend during my research, and am so glad I did, such a wealth of knowledge!

    No, he has not had his yDNA tested, and actually just read a thread about the yDNA testing for male Parkers a few minutes ago. He is a bit hesitant to have it done, so in the meantime am doing some digging on Ancestry, but running into a little bit of a roadblock. -B
  • Welcome to Parker Heritage! Do you have yDNA results for your husband? Mike
