My Great-Grandfather is John S. Parker, born circa 1870-80. Family history has it that he married four times and fathered as many as 20 children. His last known residence was Paducah Kentucky. His wives were Mary Lillian Vessels, Ida Tackett, Bera (Beaulah) Brent, and Maggie (last Name unknown). His father is William Parker, and his mother was Matilda (Mattie)Harvey. We have located my great-grandfather on the published census records as living in Graves County, Kentucky. Unfortunately, we are unable to locate any information regarding his actual whereabouts after the 1930 census. I've been led to believe that he moved to the Paducah area and may haved died there between 1940 and 1960. We have located a cemetery in London Kentucky that contains a grave for a John and Maggie Parker, but at this time are unable to verify if this is the right John Parker. It seems to me that a man with supposedly 20 children has to have some descendants out there somewhere.

some of the children named from John's previous unions were, James Leslie, Joseph Paul, Donald L., Elvis W., Pauline, Martha J., Bertha, Lillie, George, Annie B. (my Grand mother) and J.T.

I have made contact with the Grandson of J.T., and he is looking for the same information as well. So my hope is that another descendant of any of the Parker's listed above may contact this site and help us find our lost Great-Grandfather.

My dad is the nephew of mildred parker, he has had a painting of hers for many years now (guessing its a least 40 years old) he is getting ready to move from sac,ca. To virginia. I was just wondering if the painting is of any worth and should be donated to a museum. I don't know if she was known as an artist. Any info would be appriciated.

Anybody have a relation to a Grace Parker and a James Michael Parker (born in Mississippi)? I am looking back into our ancestry and my dad (JM Parker) is the only one still alive and he can't remember where we all originated from.

Thank you!

Deacon Thomas Parker died in 1683 in Reading, Mass. He came to America on the Susan & Ellen in 1635, married Amy Aylesworth shortly after, and settled in Lynn Village which was renamed Reading. He is given credit for the founding of Reading in some circles and he was the founder of a nonconforming Congregational Church there. He is variously reported to have been born in Browsholme, Wiltshire, Little Norton, and other village in the Lancashire area in England. His parents names have not been reported in any source I can find.
