FG#7 update THEORY ONLY on P11, P120 and P296.

Today I am going out on another limb. Robert Parker that is listed the 1790 census of Greenville Co., SC on page 113 is the father of Isaac and also the father of Benjamin Parker (P11) Jesse Parker (P 120 and 296) and William Parker. I also believe that this Robert Parker  is the son of Daniel and Mary (Sumner) Parker and the grandson of Richard Parker III. Now comes the hard part proving this. Wayne N. Parker   P239

Theory about ancestors of Moses Parker (1744-1830) and connection to FG#7

  I propose a theory about the ancestors of Moses Parker (1744-1830) died Marlboro Co., SC as I believe he may be part of FG#7 and need help in proving or disproving this theory. A Male Parker y-DNA test would be great !!!   I have found that Moses son, John Parker born SC was in Humphreys Co., TN at the same time as P252 oldest know ancestor Calvin Parker who was born in SC and then John Parker moved to Bibb Co., AL and was living there at the same time P412 oldest know ancestor Moses Parker…

relationship of John Burns Parker to Quanah Parker

Hello, I am new to all of this. It looks as though the John Burns Parker ( b. March 27, 1809, TN) you spoke of is the one I mentioned previously. The question I have is this: are these line of Parkers related to Quanah Parker, and if so, in what way? I simply want to know if my great grandmother, Lula Jane Parker, ( a descendant of John Burns Parker),was related to Quanah as rumored.   My daughter is a direct descendant of Quanah (from her father's side), and I wanted to put this question…

Is Phillip Parker of Bledsoe Co., TN the father of Hezekiah Parker?

I've heard from several sources that Philip Parker is Hezekiah's father, but no one has offered a rationale for this.  There are two other candidates for Hezekiah's father in Bledsoe County at the right time.  They are John Parker, and Roaly (Rolen?, Roland?).  I've found a tree on Ancestry,com ("Family Tree 2003" by "jeannie12055" which has Hezekiah, John, and Rolen as Philip's sons (along with several other children).  This would work, because the ages are right.  John and Rolen, as the…

Hi Everyone. I'm a newby. My sister has been doing this for a while, but she's a new Grandma and I don't want to disturb her.  She uploaded my Dad's YDNA back in 2008, the year he passed away.  Hasn't done much with it.  I don't think either of us understand...

Here is my delema.  I began combing records of Duplin County NC.  My Great Grandfather was a brick wall for us. We know who he is, but NO ONE would tell my Grandfather or my Dad and siblings anything about where they come from…

Peter Parker 1802-1898, and Mary Francis Burke

I have 2 DNA matches that are direct descendants of Frank Hannibal Parker, 1871-1960, born in Orange Beach, Baldwin, Alabama, USA, died in Pensacola, FL.  Most family members have no idea who his parents were, as he and his bother were raised in Pensacola, FL by someone other than his immediate family.  His brother's name was Charles Colas or Cotas Parker.  

One person on ancestry.com has his father as Peter Parker 1802-1898, and mother as…
