Elisha Parker bible

Hello!  I'm new to the group and this is my first post.  What prompted me to join this community of Parkers was the hope of finding a family bible once owned by Elisha Parker.  I've recently received some handwritten transcriptions of the information in this bible but it's unclear how much of what was written was actually in the bible or if it's coming from other sources.  The difficult part is that it includes information on a family group that I have not seen anywhere else and the…

Quanah Parker and Cynthia Ann Parker

Trying to put together a family tree. I've been told by my father and aunt that we are descendants of Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker. They can't tell me much other than they heard the stories of Cynthia Ann being kidnapped. My grandmother was Edna Lee Parker and her father was Grundy Parker. My grandmother lived in KY. Grundy died in KY but I'm not sure if he lived there his entire life. I'd appreciate any information.
