William Parker Bur 1825 Meigs Co OH

I am helping a friend with her genealogy.   William Parker was born in Malden, MA, 5 Jun 1745 and was married to Mary Warner, 28 Jan 1772. They traveled to PA?? in 1789, when his dtr Fanny Parker was supposedly born. The PA historical society says there are no birth records in SW PA for this time period. Maybe Presbyterian Church records? They were in the Presbyterian Church later in Ohio.  Need sources for proving relationship between William Parker and dtr Fanny, born 26 Mar 1789 ??? unknown…

Y-DNA came back...now time to go back to the drawing board??

Ok, so here it is! Now there is a confusing scenario here due to my results.  I am not showing any PARKER's in my Matches. Yup, none, zilch, zero.... So, now the real search begins. I have a match that is a genetic distance of 0 at the 37 marker level. His name is Weatherly. Which is not in my confirmed paper trails, so far. And his Surname list doesn't match any of my Surnames on my list....so now I am really confused!  Surnames in his line are: Armstrong, Baxter, Bennett, Fickas, Fremonger,…

James Willie Parker from Kentucky?

Hi all, I'm desperately trying to find information on my grandfather James Willie Parker who had my father with a woman named Lois Ada Arnold on April 1, 1957 in Ohio. My dad was adopted at age 2 or 3 after Lois and James had parted ways and his name was changed. His birth name was James Arnold Parker. It says on his birth certificate that his dad is James Willie Parker who was born in Kentucky. My father's mother Lois was born in Ohio it says and her birthday is somewhere around January 13,…

Ruh row Raggy......DNA Delay

Hoping for a resolution from the lab, was getting really excited, but it looks like I am delayed in my yDNA info. Has anyone else run into this recently? Hoping it's just that they are backlogged.

Update on Mrs. Raymond Parker Fouts.

To all of Ray friends, Just wanted to let you all know that I have heard from Rex Perry a cousin of Raymond Parker Fouts.  Rex wrote me the e-mail below. "Wayne, I thought that I would let you know that I spoke with Raymond Parker Fouts in her home in Florida. She is still suffering the effects of the stroke that she had a year or so ago and does have some heart problems. All in all, she sounded pretty good. I told her that all of the folks who had an interest in genealogy missed her and…

My paternal grandmother is Armatha Parker of Johnston Co, NC., (1885-1923). Her father was William Thomas Parker also of Johnston Co, NC (1856-1927) and was married to Emily Jane Holly. William Thomas was the son of Pharaoh Parker (1829-1905) in Johnston Co, NC. Pharaoh's father was Joseph Parker (1778-1863) married to Lucinda Prescott. It is beyond Joseph Parker where a dead-end occurs.

If anyone knows any information related…

George Willard Parker's parents

I am looking for Willard Parker and Harriet (Wheeler) Parker who are listed as the parents of George Willard Parker on his 1894 death record in Michigan.  In the 1880 Michigan census, George reports that his parents are from Vermont.  I keep seeing a Dr. Willard Parker in Vermont, but not with a wife named Harriet.  Has anyone ever run across these folks?

Hi everyone!

I'm a newbie and need some help finding more out about my grandfather. My dad was born in 1957 and adopted at around 2-3 years of age and they changed his name. His birth name was James Arnold Parker.

I've attempted to find out more about his father/my grandfather James Willie Parker who was born in Kentucky and the Parker side of the family but have found nothing so far.

Does anyone know of a James Willie Parker who was born in the 1920's…

"Thanks so much for your comment.  I know where William Parker was born, just not his dtr Fanny.  She is the problem, since 1789 was not a good year for BC in Pennsylvania."
Becky A Bowles replied to Becky A Bowles's discussion William Parker Bur 1825 Meigs Co OH
"Thanks for your suggestion. I am searching for DAR, and I know he is a Patriot, confirmed in the 1920's. And, you are right, he was born in Malden, MA. Problem is I have no vital records (BC, DC, will) to prove that Fanny was his daughter. I have…"
