Hello: This is actually the wife of Jack Potter responding with his log-in. .This is an old post, I hope you see my reply. John and Melvina Parker are my great great grandparents. I am just starting some ancestry digging and this is all new to me. I found info about their son, John Clay Parker, who left Kentucky after the Civil War and headed to Texas and Oklahoma. He married Eliza Emily Willis, a Choctaw and lived out his life in Texas. One of their children was my grandmother. My sister-in-law started a tree for me, but right now. I ordered a copy of John Clay Parker's enrollment application "packet" for the Choctaw tribe (declined) and he listed John and Melvina Parker as his parents.
If you are related to John and Melvina, we are related! I am very interested in anything else you know about the family. Rachel Potter
