Parker Genealogy


ALIASES: John Parker, John A. Parker. His first wife, also mother of his first group of children is unknown.


Elizabeth Crawford Barton, Joe Parker, and Dr. James Shaw state that according to their sources John's middle initial is 'R'.


Records examined reflect John A. Parker [which appears on many websites] and John R. Parker to be the same person. For obvious reasons, both were born on the same date, both married Nancy Phillips, and both fathered the same children. 

However, I believe that some confuse John R. Parker with his nephew John A. Parker.


Oral History and Genealogical Precedent


John not only named one son Robert, but every generation reflects a Robert.

I am a descendant of John R. Parker and we are currently the fourth generation with the given name Robert. Oral history states his name is John Robert Parker. Not that it makes much difference; the importance is placed on the accuracy of John's line.

John Robert Parker purchased 65 1/4 acres from his father on 1 FEB 1837.
PROP: 1 FEB 1837 Bought 65 acres on the Caney Fork from father
