I have a James Parks b 1817 Kentucky enumerated in the 1850 Crawford County Missouri census. He is married to Roxanna Gilliam Parks,w/children Harriet, Malinda, David and Samuel. I have a brick wall with James Parks parents but wonder after seeing your posts that he may have been an older (oldest) child of R. Parks. Your R. Parks would have been about 22 if she had my James Parks. Or could James Parks been a brother to the decease R. Parks husband? Do you have any information to collaborate either suppositions? Thanks!
