I have two lines of Parker...(Aren't I lucky?<G>)
One is a James Parker b. VA 1778.. m. 1. Elizabeth Lane
24 Apr 1804 in Grainger Co., TN. they had 3 children:
Josiah,Nancy & Patty.. Elizabeth died and James married
her younger sister,Tempy (could be short for Temperance)
27 Sep 1821.. They had 7 children all born in Roane Co.,TN.:
(James & Tempy both lived & died in Tennessee)
1.John W.,
4.Sarah Ann,
(taken from the 1850 Census)
Elizabeth (my line) married Jehu Hodge Pope....
Roane County, TN.

The second line is also a James (Vickers) Parker..
In Madison County, Mississippi.. His death certificate
states that his father was Robert Alexander Parker..b. NC
died 1864 in Memphis,TN. (war victim)
James had a 1/2 brother, Milton and a 1/2 sister,
Emely who married a man named "Porter"...
I have no mother's name for James...
James married Sarah Ellen Hicks 17 Dec. 1879 in Madison Co.,MS..
I 'think' he had another 1/2 brother or some relative named
Dr. Fred Parker...perhaps in St. Louis...( he signed James'
marriage bond)
James & Ellen moved to Eastland Co., TX in 1896...
This is the family I would most like to learn about...


When you're down and out...
Lift up your head and shout....
Tomorrow's gonna be a new day !!
