I am a decendant of Mary T. Parker and I find two Parker men named as her father in online research. I believe that she is a cousin to Quanah parker and also indian herself any help would be fantastic.
Cynthia Ann Parker's brother John R Parker was taken from Parker's Fort and ransomed back about 4 years later. His mother asked him to go bact to the Comanches and bring back Cynthia Ann - she refused to return,, John Parker became sick and a Comanche captive Mexican Donna Juanita Esparza stayed with him and they later married and he went to Mexico to her family.
Malee, I apologize for not making myself clear on William G Parker. He can NOT be the father of your Mary T Parker-Brown.
Another researcher who has your Mary T Parker and John P Brown in his tree listed William G Parker as father.
William G and Silvia Parker's daughter Mary E Parker lived with them from 1850 through 1880. In 1880 your Mary T was with her husband in MO.
Comanche County TX is the resting place of William G and Silvia Parker.
I am unable to find your Mary T Parker in TX or MO or TN in 1850-1860; therefore I am unable to identify her parents.
