I'm currently researching the family of Alexander Haywood Parker and Mary Jane Smith/Taylor. This is what I have so far.
Alexander Haywood/Hayward Parker was born March 4, 1848 probably in Alabama (Place of birth per 1880 Census for A.H. Parker, other records indicate KY or MS). He died January 22, 1892, probably in the Cleveland County Arkansas area. He was married to Mary Jane Taylor, who was born September 1846 in KY and died January 24, 1892. They had 9 children.
1.) George Thomas Parker born Aug 23, 1870, ARK. This is probably the same George Thomas Parker Aug 23, 1870-January 17, 1945 who is buried in the Macedonia Cemetery.
2.) Columbus Lee Parker born Feb 13, 1872. Family records site Cleveland County as the place of birth, but Cleveland County was not formed until 1873, so it may have been Jefferson, Davis or Bradley. Columbus Lee Parker died November 18, 1934 in Bienville/Jackson Parish area of Louisiana.
3.) Oceala Parker born January 20, 1874 married Mr. Shirly
4.) John Allen Parker born July 12, 1876. Does not appear with his parents in the 1880 Census. He may have died as a child.
5.) Miles A. "Tank" Parker born Aug 13, 1878. --This is believed to be the same Miles A. Parker as ssdi list as 434-09-4741 who was born in New Edenburg, Ark the son of Alex H. Parker and Mary Smith and who died in Clarks, Caldwell, Louisiana in June 1968.
6.) William Hayward Parker born December 27, 1880 died January 4, 1927
7.) Irene Parker born August 20, 1883 married Mr. Hester
8.) James Foster Parker born April 1887 died Feb 5, 1941
9.) Annie Belle Parker born Aug 8, 1890 died Oct 23, 1962.
