Nicholas Parks Hi. I am writing a simple account regarding the very simple origins of what I know to be my father's family.

My father is Richard Parks, Brother of Russell, and son of Georgia and Raymond of Kentucky, Michigan, and eventually Southeastern Indiana. Both parents are deceased, and I believe that there are ties to other family names in the midwest (especially Kentucky) of Cornett.

There is really so much, and I believe that is as helpful a starting point as any for future entries.
