Preservation and Celebration of the Parker Family History & Genealogy
I have recently begun to create a family tree on Ancestry.com. I've opened it for public viewing but am so new at this I am not sure if it is accessible. It is listed as, "Parker family", and my user name is kim parker or kparker.
My husband has heard from family, long ago, that they were related to Quanah Parker, however, I'm not seeing evidence of this. I do, however, find an anomaly that would make this possible?
My husband's name is James, his father was George Cleveland Parker. His father was James Parker, married to Othella Armstrong Parker. James Parker's Parents were Shepherd Parker (1874-1947) and Lottie May Parker. Shepherd Parker's parents appear to be Samuel Johnson and Melinda Ketchings. These two have a fascinating history and a large family of their own...added to it appear to be Shepherd Parker, Franklin Parker, Thomas Parker and Victory Parker. With the father's name being Johnson it makes me wonder if these children could have been taken in by the Johnson family. If they were taken in, could they be descendants from Quanah Parker? If you would have information on this, we would appreciate leading us in the right direction.
