Looking for Parker's

Good morning,

I have been researching my husband's family line of Parkers. From what I know his 3 G grandfather was from Philadelphia Pennsylvania, his 2 G grandfather Lorenzo Dow Parker moved to Tennessee and started his family, then moved on to Old Tishomingo Mississippi where they stayed which is now Prentiss County Mississippi. Some of the names for his Parker family are Henry Clay Parker married Jane Caroline Moore, Henry Allen Parker, Nancy Parker, Leonidas Parker, William M Parker married Annie Reed. CW Parker possibly married an Eliza, Leander Parker married Elizabeth Betty Hodges. My husband has done the Ancestry DNA with not much luck for the Parker side. I would like to do what I'm guessing is the Y DNA to show the male line and see which Parker family he belongs to. Could anyone help me in the right direction, your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Jeannine Parker

  • Hi James David Parker,
    When Ancestry was doing y-DNA testing, they did not test the same DYS as Family Tree DNA does, but you still could/can compare the common DYS that both companies did test. I am not aware if there is a new site that provides cross match but the old Parker DNA Project.
    Note: Ancestry DNA data can be transferred to FamilyTreeDNA, see my post on PH or go to their web site.
  • Question to all: Can Ancestry DNA be cross matched with known Parker yDNA research i.e. specific measurements of each DYS marker data? That's how I found the YORK family -Joshua b.Jan 1756. But I used similar data sets.
    Question to Boyd: Do you have information on Jacob m.Stites whose son LorenzoDow m.Bradshaw?
  • Hi Jeannine,
    This is the link to FamilyTreeDNA testing https://www.familytreedna.com/
    The 37 marker test is on sale so now would be a good time for your husband to test.
