James D. Parker in Mississippi about 1870 to 1880

My ggf was James Parker who was born around 1860 [just a guess] and who, with his older sister Charity, was living in Winston County, Mississippi in 1875. On August 12, 1875 he married Pheba Jones.

Blanche Parker

I am looking for information pertaining to my great-grandmother, Blanche Parker.  Her mother was Dora Kecker Parker.  If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great.  I am just starting out on my quest for history.  All I have so far is that the line goes all the way back to John Ledger Parker.  I know about him, I now am hoping to learn more about his descendant and my great-grandmother Blanche.

I'm trying to trace my family in a sort of backwards manner. I do not know anything about my fathers family. I have oil royalties from the Parker family and have to start there and more forward down the tree. Any one with any information they could share would be greatly appreciated. I would assume there are others of us who still have Oil rights from the Parker Family and that would be the best way to start my search if I could Identify those existing…
