Greene and Newton County GA Parker’s

my great grandmother was Chanda (Dolly) Parker. She was born 1878 and married Paul Callahan. Her father was James Andrew Parker b. 1847 in Newton County, GA, d. 1906 in Morgan County, GA. His father was Aaron Parker, b. 1810 in GAand died after 1880. Ancestry shows his father as Aaron Parker b. 1768 in Bedford VA and died 1826 in Jasper County, GA. His wife being Mary Williams, md. Greene County, GA in 1801. 

Any bells ringing here?

Family of Joseph Robert Parker

  1. Greetings, per what my father, Francisco Enrique Orellana (another Parker Heritage member) and I have been able to research, Joseph Robert Parker 1786-1840 was my 3rd Great Grandfather and I’d like to find out more information about his father John Cecil Parker and mother Mary Belford who were all born in Yorkshire, England.  Here’s a link to a partial Family Tree of the descendants of Joseph Robert Parker and his spouse:

Many thanks if you have any other information about Joseph Robert Parkers ancestors.

Hi, My Parker people are members of Parker Family Group #42.  We are a small group and are GD 1 so we are fairly closely related in time, although we still can't make a connection to our families.  What I would like to do is just as Wayne N. Parker's comment suggests is eliminate Parkers within my tree that aren't related through Family Group #42, but might be related to another group.

  For example,  I have a George Parker (1765-1852) married Phebe Pearsall (1769-1840).  George was a Green Mountain Boy that settled in the area of Niles, Cayuga, New York abt. 1793.  My Brick Wall Lemuel Parker (1771-1835), FG #42,  married Tacy Barber Niles (1782-1835) in Niles, Cayuga, New York. They are in the same area at the same time and I would like to be able to exclude him as a possible relative of my Lemuel Parker.  Therefore I was wondering if anyone out there has George and Phebe Pearsall Parker in their tree who has done the Y-DNA test and can link him to a Parker Family Group.

Below is a link to George Parker in my Ancestry tree:

Would appreciate any comments or suggestions!

Thank You

Perquimans/Gates Co. NC Parkers

I live in Perquimans County, NC and am looking for links to Joseph and Louisa Parker.  Joseph's father was Alexander Parker (Northampton Co.)....Louisa's parents were Elisha & Sylvester Parker  of same county.  Joseph & Louisa are my g-g-g-grandparents.  I have a personal letter written by Margaret Saunders Simpson (daughter of Seth Saunders & Adah Parker) in 1957 to her nephew Beecher (son of her brother Willie Jonathat Saunders).  The letter is telling Beecher about the Parker family ancestors.  The letter only goes back as far as Alexander Parker, and Elisha & Sylvester Parker.  I'd like to go further back.

Sarah Jane Parker

I'm a beginner in the process of locating my Parker descendants.  Here's what I do know which is that my great grandmother Sarah Jane Parker, born

in Golconda, IL, 1859 and died in St. Francis, Clay County, Arkansas, on April 20, 1915, father was William Parker born in TN.  Sarah Jane's death

certificate states 'Will.' which I interpret as William.  Her mother is 'M. Mccollum' born in Scotland.  Sarah Jane had a sister Mary Aston and brother

Marrion who could have been twins as the 1880 IL U. S. Census states they were both 25 at the time and Sarah Jane was 20.  Sarah Jane was married

3 times, first Edward Sawyer, then Orral Ayotte (my great grandfather and husband of Sarah Jane) and then to James Dusenberry.  Can anyone help me

with Sarah Jane?  She seems very complicated.  Thanks!
