Parker Heritage Talk

Merry Christmas and Happy New year.

It was right before Christmas in 1951 and the location was in Arkansas. It was a cold and windy night with a clear and star filled sky. A boy age six asked his mother if she needed some firewood and if so could he go get it. She knew that he wanted an excuse to go outside, she put on his coat, cap and gloves and opened the door for him and told him he could bring some firewood from the woodpile and add it to the wood piled on the porch. As he headed across the yard with Rusty, his dog, he…

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…

Parker Family Question (Walas Ann/Joseph Charles)

I'm currently looking for more information about my Parker family. 

My great grandmother is Walas Ann Parker (born Sept. 26, 1889 in Pottsville, AR; died June 13, 1956 in Del Rio, TX). She married James Monroe Patterson (b Feb. 26, 1892 in Lamar Co. TX) on March 5, 1914 in Francis, OK. 

Her parents were Joseph Charles Parker (born April 9, 1857, died July 19, 1946) and Margaret Catherine Wells (born 1853, died Oct 24, 1900). I believe he was born in Charleston, SC and died in…

"I've started going through them, so far no luck. I was under the assumption that Joseph Charles was married in Texas, but the only information I found about his father was "NC" written beside his name in a family book.
Thank you!"
