John M Parker's Death Year

While checking Whitley County Kentucky probate records online, I came across a discrepancy that ought to be corrected. For years we have all listed John M. Parker's death as 1857, with no reason to believe otherwise. However, Family Search recently added thousands (millions?) of images to their database - among them, Whitley County's probate pecords. Everything they added hasn't been indexed yet, so you can't use a search engine yet to find a particular record in some of the new image sets like…See More

Parker Land Warrants

Last summer, after I'd spent several weeks researching and mapping land records of some some ancestors and relatives in Arkansas, I decided to do the same for others in Illinois. The research was done online at the Bureau of Land Management's website that and the General Land Office records were from all over the country. When I started, I made no distinction between land patents and land warrants. Both provided descriptions of the lands awarded (state, county, meridian, township, range,…See More

William, I have been researching a John Parker, who first shows up on the tax rolls in Beaufort County, NC, 1755 and then Pitt County, (Pitt was created from Beaufort) from 1762 until 1764.  He then vanishes. It is my question, whether this John Parker move to Wilkes Co, NC and is the father of the John in Whitley Co, Ky  and possible brother of Edward.  Just a possible idea.  I believe that this John is the Father of Edward that I am seeking.

No generations between. Edward was married twice, with 4 children with both wives. His oldest son was born at Montgomery Station (no longer there) name, Joel. became a preacher in Rowan County Kentucky. A lot of documentation of that. I have photo copies of the bible, and will send them to you. First wife was Eliza Oakley, her brother was William a charter member of Owingsville Ky. Second wife in 1802 was Elizabeth Burk. Both William and Edward, along with Thomas Montgomery were founders of Montgomery Station KY. Documented in a book "In Search of Morgan's Station" and the "Last Indian Raid in Kentucky" by Harry G. Enoch. 1997

I have been unable to go any further in confirmation certain than Edward Parker who was Born in 1754 in Pitt County, NC. He died in 1838 in Bath County Kentucky. Live most of his life in Montgomery, Clark, and Bath Counties. His youngest son John migrated to Carroll County Arkansas in possession of his family bible.  It has been passed down from generation to generation, so the information is about as accurate as could be expected.  

 

The bible did not have any information about his parents, or siblings unfortunately. 

 

I am also in possession of a court statement made to obtain his Revolutionary War Pension, sworn to in court, and witnessed and confirmed by two others who served with him and knew of him and his service.  It seems that he lived in Boone Station in 1780, and enlisted in the Militia of a Captain Bailey, part of the George Rogers Clark expedition to battle the Shawnee Towns.  Any way the research I have done on Boone Station, indicates that Daniel Boone, after his escape from the Indian's, after the battle of Blue Licks and return to Kentucky, went back to the Yadkin Valley of North Carolina where his family had returned after his capture, and brought his family, and others back to Kentucky in the Fall of 1779, not to Booneborough, but to establish Boone Station.  Point being that Edward enlisted in March of 1780. It seems that he must have come to Kentucky with Boone.  It also seems that the Yadkin valley is next door to Wilkes County, the home of said John Parker.
