Parkers of Pittsylvania Co., VA
I am also a desc. of 1) William Parker, 2) Elijah Parker, 3) Richard Parker, 4) Wm. Bennett Parker.
The oldest known ancestor, William, I believe was married to a Henrietta. This is based on a review of Pittsylvania Co. records and is not conclusive since there appeared to be 1 or 2 other William Parkers there. Our William died bef. 1839 and left a will. His son Elijah married 1st Elizabeth Bennett and 2nd Permelia Owen. Of the first wife was born Richard Parker who married Eliz., "Betsy" Linthicum. They lived on Harping Creek in Pittsyl. Co. on land donated by her father. Richard went to prison in 1877 for forgery and Betsy divorced him soon thereafter. I would like to know what became of him. Did he die in the penitentiary or go on to be released and live later with his mistress Virginia Barber (named on the divorce papers) - does anyone know?
I am also researching the Parkers. Following is the skimpy information that I have and would like to make contact with someone who might have more info.
My grandmother, Florence M. Parker was the daughter of William Franklin Parker (b. 09 Dec 1870 in Tennessee, d. 06 Dec 1952 in Tulsa, OK) Jodie Walker (b. 13 Mar 1878 in Tennessee, d. 16 Jul 1911 in Tulsa, OK).
William Franklin Parker was the son of John H. Parker (b. 14 Mar 1838 in Caroline Co VA, d. 08 Dec 1917 in Tulsa, OK0 Lucinda C. Brown (b. 13 May 1845 in Marshall Co. AL, d. 11 Sep 1929 in Tulsa, OK)
I have researched some of the Parker line in Pittsylvania Co. due to the fact that Mildred Parker (daughter of William and Henrietta Parker) married my ggg-grandfather George Craft from Pennsylvania, they were married Jan 08 1803 in Pittsylvania Co. Va.
Henrietta Craft/George Craft/Millie Parker
Here is what I have found out re: Henrietta Craft.
Her father, George Craft is my ggg grandfather also.
b.ca. 1783 and m. "Millie" Parker.
Millie was a close relative of Dr. Benjamin Rush of
Philadelphia, the Friend of the Revolutionary cause.
George Craft Millie Parker came from Pennsylvania
and settled on Pigg River Road, near Climax in
Pittsylvania Co., Va. where they built a handsome brick
home. John Carr Bradner Henrietta lived near them and
are buried in a family plot there.
The information that I have is that George Craft was born on Oct. 21, 1779 in Pennsylvania to Conrad Kraft and Dorothea Rosch. Evidently the name changed in spelling when he came to VA. He died about 1833 in Pittsylvania Co. Va. He married Milly (Mildred) Parker daughter of William and Henrietta Parker on Jan 08, 1805 in Pittsylvania Co. She was born Sept. 9, 1785 and died July 20, 1854. They had nine children including Henrietta. I live about 10 miles from the home of Phillip Craft, George's brother. It is still standing and being renovated.
Need any other information will be glad to help.
I am tracing my family geneology and I have discovered many links to my family history. I would appreciate it very much if you would email me any information you have on the Linthicum link that is within your family. I am a link within the Linthicum family of Pitts. Co. Va.
Parker/Linthicum connection in Pittsyl Co.
I have some information on the Linthicums in Pittsyl. Co. Please tell me who you are rsearching.
I am a descendent of Elijah Parker, Millie's brother and I was very interested in the comment that Millie was from PA as well as her husband. This would be a clue as to the origins of the Parkers which I was not aware of prior to their appearance in Pittsylvania County, VA, I would appreciate very much the sources of the information about Millie being from PA.
John L. Parker and Callie Atkins parker VA
I read this message and was thinking that this John Parker may also be my Great Grandfather. My Grandfather is John Lee Parker b. 1900 d. 1959 His parents were John and Callie Parker from Pittsylvania Co. He married Beatrice Fay Pribble Parker. My father, Steven Dwight Parker, is the youngest of their 7 children that survived to adulthood.
I am pretty sure that this is the same family. Feel free to email with any information. Especially interested in war service Confederacy, 1812 or Am. Rev.
