James Willie Parker from Kentucky?

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.

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?
