Clark Parker/Henry Harrison Parker

Hello,  I am trying to find a document/proof that Clark Parker (b. 1781 Vermont, d. 1847 Mentor,Ohio) is the father of Henry Harrison Parker (b. 1813 Mentor, Ohio) Also, I am trying to find a death record for Henry Harrison Parker. He is on the 1860 census but not the 1870 census, so I'm assuming he died between those years. He is shown as living in Tama County, IA on the 1860 census. Any help would be appreciated! Angie

Parker Born Gotenburg Sweden 1830s


I'm trying to trace relatives of Charles Parker born 16 August 1836 (possibly 1834 or 1838) in Gotenburg Sweden.

His father was a British sea captain and his mother was Swedish.  He had a brother possibly younger and they were about two years apart. Not long after the second son was born their mother died.  The father soon re-married but the second wife had no time for the boys so at a very young age they ran away to sea together.

Charles' brother left the ship in…

Jesse or Jessie Sam Parker


I've found a bit more information regarding my Grandmother's Family.  The Parents of Ruby May Parker were Jesse Samual Parker Born about 1883 in Tennessee and And Sarah Satafield Born about 1884.  Records indicate that Ruby may have been named Bula or Buba Parker or this may just be incorrect interpretations from hand written records.   

Siblings of Ruby are listed on Census Records as:

John G - 1918

Robert C   - 1921

Mary Louise - 1922

Leon -…

"Hello Duane E. Parker,

Welcome to PH,
I suspect that you may have left out one generation between James Parker born in 1768 in NC and James M. Parker born in Ill. during 1844. That person may be William Parker that is on the 1850 census. (?????)
