Preservation and Celebration of the Parker Family History & Genealogy
A Dr. Joseph Parker has a bible with data on his ancestors named above.
" My G..G. father, Wm Parker came from England in the same ship with
the colony led by Rev. Wm Turner, and settled in Somerste [sic] Co. Md. in
1680. He, Parker, was accidentally killed while in a deer hunt with a
party of friends. He was galloping his horse, mistaken for a deer and
shot. He married Mary Smith. They had only one son, Jacob Parker.
He married first Sophronia Terrel. They had 3 sons, George, Jacob
and William, and 4 daughters, Nancy, Rhoda, Juda or Judith and Polly.
George married Sarah Smith his cousin and settled in Virginia. He owned
all the land on which Parkersburg is now built and the town is named
The data has many marriages, births, deaths of those Parkers and Turners. If you are related and wish more information, contact me. I found the information supplied by Howard Blair on his Eastern Shores Parkers website.
