Bethlem Parks is living with her sons, John and Joseph in Cherokee Co., NC 1860 census. My ggrandfather,age 12 and his brother John age 8 are living with them. In 1870, they are living in Gilmer Co., GA. John Parks is now gone and his brother Joseph is listed head of household. Bethlem [Hettie] and John Shook are living with him. William Shook my ggrandfather is now married. I have reason to believe that Bethlem could be their grandmother.
