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.

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.

"I got no further than you did.

"Quick look at various trees online suggests both are from the Groton Parkers of Parker Family Group 10. Other information may lead you back to another group. Many believed Elder John b.1758 was as well until yDNA put him in group 5."
