Add my missing relatives to the Parker roll call Please.............
My Benjamin Parker was born in South Carolina around 1812 or so. The family
story goes that Benjamin and his two brothers came to Butler County, AL. One
brother's name was Eldridge Parker and I do not know the other brother's name
but possibly Starling Parker was a brother.
Benjamin married Kathryn Elizabeth Parker (supposedly no relation), she was
born around 1822. Now, I do know that Benjamin served in the Indian Wars and
that Kathryn (Katie) received pension for his service. I have a copy of this
