hope this helps you


Pendergraft-White-Rogers-Davis-Fletcher-.They seemed to all travel together in groups from Virginia to the Carolinas, coming to Arkansas on the second Trail of Tears. The Parkers and related families decided to leave the Trail of Tears and got off in Arkansas even though they were intermarried with many indians in the family by now(some were Deleware,Osage,Cherokee and Catawaba,) We are still researching these familes and are finding them on the Indian Census and Tribal Rolls.
From our research, we believe that John Parker,Senior(the father of William)married twice.We believe his first wife was Mary Davis of North Carolina and his second wife was ?Fletcher. We believe William was also married twice. At age 36 or 36 he married Amanda Elizabeth Hickenbottom(Graham). She was part Indian and was from Georgia(Hiwassee River area}. William Hickenbottom was her father and Elizabeth Whittier was her mother. Her father died shortly after her birth. Her mother married Ira T Graham who adopted Elizabeth and her brother William.Her mother died before 1850 and Ira T graham married Sarah ? who loved and took care of Elizabeth and William.Elizabeth and William named their first daughter Sarah Jane in honor of her. William Parker was known by the nicknameof "Doc" Parker and "Uncle Billy" to everyone in the area. He and Amanda Elizabeth were married in 1857 at Benton County Arkansas.Elizabeth was known as "Betsy" to all.William was born May3, 1820-22 in North Carolina and diedJuly 20, 1923 at Hiwasse, Arkansas. Amanda Elizabeth Hickenbottom Graham was born 5 10, 1838 in the Hiwasse River area Gordon County ,Georgia and died 10,5,1923 in Hiwassee Arkansas
William's father John is said to have died on the Trail of Tears

We believe William was also married twice. At age 36 or 36 he married Amanda Elizabeth Hickenbottom(Graham). She was part Indian and was from Georgia(Hiwassee River area}. William Hickenbottom was her father and Elizabeth Whittier was her mother. Her father died shortly after her birth. Her mother married Ira T Graham who adopted Elizabeth and her brother William.Her mother died before 1850 and Ira T graham married Sarah ? who loved and took care of Elizabeth and William.Elizabeth and William named their first daughter Sarah Jane in honor of her

Elizabeth was Born 1836-8 on a Cherokee Indian Reservation in SW Georgia. Her Father W. Higginbottom died and her Mother Sarah Jane Autry Higginbottom Married Ira E Graham. About 1830-1850 GA census they are living on a Cherokee Indian Reservation.
