Hello Steven,

 That is great news, I look forward to seeing more info from you.

Here is my latest working theory. Alexander Parker was 14 years old in 1779 based on witnessing a deed for John Kittrell in Greene County NC in 1798 referring to the year 1779. He would have been born in 1765. The deed was in Dobbs County in 1779. In 1790 there was only one household that could have included Alexander Parker. The head of the household was Lydia Parker with four males over 16 years old. Lydia Parker only appears in the 1790 census. On a 1779 tax list, there is an Isaac Parker. Isaac does not appear in the 1790 census. The other males in 1790 census are accounted for in the tax list and the census and Alexander could not have been in the household. It only leaves the possibility of Isaac dying before 1790 and leaving his widow, Lydia with four boys. Alexander Parker named his first son Isaac in 1796.

My FG#7 ancestors appear to have been in Beaufort County in the 1755 (Isaac Parker) and then in Craven County. A typical migration would have been from Virginia to Beaufort. Tying Isaac Parker in 1755 in Beaufort County to a Chowan County Parker is now the challenge.

Any suggestions? Oh... and Isaac Parker in 1779, as his grandson Isaac Parker on an 1824 tax list in Pitt County, showed insolvent.... not a pot to do daily chores.

Hello, all Family Group #7 members:

I am tracing the name of FRIERSON which was used as a given name by Parker FG#7 families.  It might have been chosen for baby boys born to Parkers living in Mississippi,  Louisiana, or Texas.  It might have been used ca. 1870-1920.


If the name is at all familiar by that or any other spelling, please let me know.  Contact me at or here at Parker Heritage on my My Page.  Thank you.

 I do this research in the hope that other researcher like yourself can take what I have done and built on it. I ready enjoy the "hunt" and finding "things" then I like to share that knowledge with other researchers.

 I just had to scale back the "deep" research and take a break but I will be back.

Wayne; I really appreciate your website and all the hardwork that went into putting together all the FG#7 family information. It will be beneficial for generations to come.

This is the link for my on-line file since we have new members on PH.

 This is a working file, it is always changing as we find new information. This file contains not only information about Y-DNA FG#7 but other Parker families as well.

Hi Melissa,

 I am glad you have a new job, so you concentrate on your work right now. I thank you for your offer to work on genealogy research when you can and yes we will find our answers some day hopefully sooner rather that later.

 Thanks for your earlier input you provided to me. Keep in touch.

Cuz   Wayne

I have recently started a new job, so don't have much time to devote to my Parker research, but I still work on it as time permits. It is slow, but I'm sure we'll get it figured out eventually.
