Concerning Joseph Park; His son, Thomas Park's, Biography in Wood Co taken
from The History of WV Old & New
Pub 1923 by The Am Hist Soc Inc. Vol II Page 577 It states that Joseph
Park b 1791 PA was a Volunteer for the War of 1812 served under Capt Willoughby
Morgan, taken prisioner at Black Rock NY & sent to a Quebec prison until
peace was declared in 1815
I've found thru a DAR pamphlet that the prisoner listed is John (Jno) Park
from PA. This maybe Joseph's father! There is a John Park in Bedford Co.
PA 1810 & a Deborah Park in 1830! Are John & Deborah Park Joseph's parents????
He had a son John & a dau Deborah???? Any Clues????
