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.,
2.Elizabeth,
3.Phillip
4.Sarah Ann,
5.Emaline
6.Polly
7.Michael
(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...

Thanx....Joyce
