William Parker - Sarah Hartwell

I am researching William Parker who married Sarah Hartwell in Campbell County, Kentucky in 1818.  Posting bond for Sarah Hartwell was a Timothy Wright.  In checking Timothy Wright he was married to a Harriet Parker whose bond was paid by Richard Parker.  In the 1820 census all three of these individuals can be found in Covington, Campbell Kentucky.  I have not confirmed any on the 1830 census.  By 1838, Sarah has re-married to a Peter Kinder and moved to Illinois, and then to Wisconsin.  I am…

William Parker Bur 1825 Meigs Co OH

I am helping a friend with her genealogy.   William Parker was born in Malden, MA, 5 Jun 1745 and was married to Mary Warner, 28 Jan 1772. They traveled to PA?? in 1789, when his dtr Fanny Parker was supposedly born. The PA historical society says there are no birth records in SW PA for this time period.

Y-DNA came back...now time to go back to the drawing board??

Ok, so here it is! Now there is a confusing scenario here due to my results.  I am not showing any PARKER's in my Matches. Yup, none, zilch, zero.... So, now the real search begins. I have a match that is a genetic distance of 0 at the 37 marker level. His name is Weatherly. Which is not in my confirmed paper trails, so far. And his Surname list doesn't match any of my Surnames on my list....so now I am really confused!  Surnames in his line are: Armstrong, Baxter, Bennett, Fickas, Fremonger,…

James Willie Parker from Kentucky?

Hi all, I'm desperately trying to find information on my grandfather James Willie Parker who had my father with a woman named Lois Ada Arnold on April 1, 1957 in Ohio. My dad was adopted at age 2 or 3 after Lois and James had parted ways and his name was changed. His birth name was James Arnold Parker. It says on his birth certificate that his dad is James Willie Parker who was born in Kentucky. My father's mother Lois was born in Ohio it says and her birthday is somewhere around January 13,…

Marian/Marion Parker is my maternal great-grandfather. Not sure of the spelling of his first name and his middle name may or may not be Avery. I've seen him listed on census records and land records with middle initial "A" or "O" and even "E". He was born in Missouri Sept. 15, 1878. Died in Ardmore, Carter, Oklahoma June 22, 1948. Marian's father was born about 1844 in either Missouri or Oklahoma. His name is listed as Joseph P. Parker on the 1910 census with Marian & my…

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…
