Well, I hit the wrong little button.  Starting again.   Francis (Frank) Parker (1845 - 1916) was married to Phoebe Jane Sparks (1845 - 1916)  They had several children one of which was Garret (several variations) - 1869 to 1954.  Garrett (named after Phoebe's father and g-father etc) was married to Julia Rivers.    Frank and Phoebe died on the same day within hours of each other and family lore has it they are buried in the same coffin.  Everyone lived in Lawrence County and I don't know of any of them leaving.   See if I can hit the right button.

I am very interested in your Garret Parker.  I have a William Parker,a b. ca 1750, in VA, later in Montgomery Co., NC by 1800.  This William Parker md. Margaret Garrett.  They had a son, Garrett Parker who md. Ann ?, some say Morgan.  Garrett stayed in Montgomery CO., NC, but has a son, Garrett, who is in Fayette Co., Tenn, in 1850.  William and Margaret also had a son, William Parker, b. ca 1771, who ends up in 1824, in Harlan Co., Ky. and then by 1830 in Casey Co., Ky.  William supposedly married Elizabeth Farmer and they had a son, Garrett Parker, b. ca 1803.  He appears on the Harlan Co., Tax Lists, and is a bondsman on his brother, Goodwin Parker's marriage in 1825, in Pulaski Co., Ky.  Wondering if your Frank Parker would be a relative to my William Parker and his brother, Garrett Parker?  What are the dates of birth on Frank and his son, Garret??

Hello, I am from the Frank and Phoebe Sparks Parker line of Lawrence County, KY through their son Garret (and the many spelling variations of his name) and his wife Julia Rivers Parker.

Anyone else working that line?

Hi, I am looking for information about a Parker family that lived in Flemingsburg, Fleming, Kentucky, USA during 1841.  My great-great-grandmother Addie Mark (Mack?) Parker was a civil war widow.  The historical stories that we have via texts give her parents as Ransom Parker and Addie (McClurg) Parker.  Addie Mark Parker was born in July 20, 1841 in Flemingsburg, KY.  After the civil war, she went west alone and came to the Denver/Golden area, which was a mining camp (prior to CO statehood).  There she opened a bakery shop and later married Delanzon Moon Sr.  

Any information is welcomed.

Wesley, Albert parker was born in Pennsylvania, but when the war ended someone told me that Penn became W.Virginia. I found Albert on a census .I was told that his father was Thomas H. Parker but I cant find any information on him.
