Thomas Bryant Parker was my third great-grandfather. I do have some information on him and his children. I also have a book about the Parkers and it has alot of information in it and alot of different lines. My Brother-in-law has my book, but I can get it from him.
Thomas's first wife was Catherine Hammett and they had three children. One is William Hammett Parker born 9-25-1830 and died 10-26-1909. He married Nancy Katherine Wells in 1849. They had six children and one was Mary Ann Parker. She was born 2-3-1853 and died in 2-14-1936. She married Charles Edward Strivens on 10-20-1869. They had Charlotte Grace Strivens. She was born 3-10-1888 and died 4-19-1980. She married Hayden Orville Ziegler on 1-20-1912. They had Stanley Stanford Ziegler. Stanley was born 6-15-1914 and he is still living. He married Mildred Cole on 8-17-1941. These are my parents. Mary Parker was kidnapped by the Indians and she is in some history books. She wrote a diary also. She did not know she was white until later on in her life. The Indians killed her grandfather and parents I believe at Parker Fort. She married the Indian Chief of the Commanche Tribe. One of her children was Quannah Parker. He is famous for helping to get the Indians to sign peace agreements. His father was supposed to be really mean and Quannah had blue eyes. When I copied the Parker book, they had some photos of Quannah Parker and I got some photo copies/ not good condition though. After I get my book, I can give you more information. I had to stop on Thomas Bryant Parker because the cities records were destroyed in a fire. Some of the information on him came from family in Utah, they had his diary and some letters and the family Bible. Years ago I wrote and asked to get copies, paying them to do it and I wanted to share my information with them. They never responded. This is from his second wives family. That is where Robert Pollock was the first child from his second wife. Her name was Martha Ann Nelson.
