Who is P309?

Is it possible to find out who P309 in the Parker Y-DNA project is?   I am assuming this is a person?  He was added to Family Group #17 and his oldest ancestor is Nicholas Parker 1755. I know this is a long shot but I am trying to get passed Nicholas.  I am sure there are privacy issues. Just wondering.

Parents/family of John Franklin Parker, born abt. 1849 in Leslie-DeSoto, Sumter County, GA

So far I seem to have found numerous Parker families in GA but none of them are related to John F. Parker. That is, the John Franklin Parker who married Mary Jane Savage (1860-1960) in Dec. 1879 in Okeechobee, FL or it may have been Brevard County, FL.  Those two are my g-great grandparents. Their daughter was Drusilla Parker born Oct. 1880. Later came Lewis, John, and Barney. Drusilla was my great grandmother. With some of those details I'm looking for the mother and father of John Franklin…

A better explanation of how to use land records to trace FG#7

I want to thank Peter Beadle (FG#7 researcher for P402) for putting together this as he has done a better job than I. He also has done a great job with plotting the land on maps. They won't show up in this post due to the fact that this board will only support words. If any one want to see the maps just send e-mail me. waynenparker@yahoo.com Wayne N.

I enjoying reading your posts because it shows how great research is done, It pays to be a skeptical genealogy researcher. Too many researchers take "known facts" at face value and miss the opportunity to find new facts.
