Starling Parker- 1793- 1853

Looking for siblings , parents, .  Starling seems to have appeared out of nowhere.  First mention- Effingham County, Ga. married to Harriet Hannah Schubtrine

. I have tried finding out information on Starling for about 25 years.  He appears with no other Parkers.  He was in Bulloch County, Ga. early 1800's.

In 1850 census it said he was born in SC.  He married Martha Patsy Groover in Thomasville, Ga.  Then later married Mary Melton lived in Madison County, Fl.
