I am trying to find the parents of Peter Harvey Parks, born 25 Dec 1874 on Tangier Island, Accomack, Virginia.
His mother was known as "A Crocket Woman" in "Holland's Island's Disappearing: from the papers of Thomas Gordon Parks".
Apparently, this was a big secret at the time. But Peter was fostered to Peter Hargis Parks and his wife, Emily, of Hollands Island, Maryland.
Anyone connected to this family or having information on Peter's parents, please drop me a line. :-)
