The following wills are available:
Parker, Frances Sr. - 1824 - Smith County - Will Book 2
Parker, Francis - 1829 - Smith County - Will Book 2
Parker, Francis S. - 1858 - Knox County - Will Book 12 - page 466
Parker, Francis Jr. - 1826 - Smith County - Will Book 2
Parker, Francis Sr. - 18O7 - Smith County - Will Book 1
The will index that I have only covers through 1861, so I
don't know if this will help or not. There were several other
Parker wills in Smith County. You can contact the Smith County
Court Clerk to find out how to obtain copies of these wills.
There may have even been a Frank (or Francis) Parker will from
Smith County dated AFTER 1870. If so, the court clerk would know about it.
