In my pursuit back past James, I've ran across a few more of us.  But I haven't finished my "homework" on James down. You will see many of my posts here, the "new" owner asked me to help weed through Parker Group Five inquiries, as best I could. He hasn't fired me or begged me to stop. But in your case, if you're new to genealogy, there is a lot about our distant ancestors I would have never never known without this site. I'm guessing there are others. And it has inspired me to contact a PG5 from James who had visited Parker Cemetery in Hutton Township of Coles County, Illinois approximately 3 miles from Westfield, where my family is from. So David Paul and a few more of us have vowed to restore and maintain our family plot. Throughout the year we commute from Mo and IN and then we've settled on "Homecoming" at Westfield -held EVERY year the 3rd weekend of August, would be a good annual chance for folks to catch up with each other. Our larger family -PG5 includes many soldiers, sailors, and militia serving in virtually every major conflict since arriving in the early 1600s. Our James is just one, but I know which hill to tend.

My grandfather was Robert Ellsworth Parker, my mother was Kathryn Parker. I'm pretty sure you are the Parkers that I am related to.

David Parker moved his family to Alton Illinois after one of his son's murdered a man in Blue Lick, Kentucky.  My relative was one of the other sons Green Parker.  There was also Phebe Jane, Wilson, Robert Buckner Parker, David Allen and many others. Green married Florida White.  Green went on to be a tax collector and truant officer in Alton.
