I am assembling genealogy information about the various Parks families in Talladega County and how they are related.

Jim, I found your posting in the Talladega Co., Alabama queries page. I need a little info on the Parks family in Talladega Co. Do you have any info on a MARY PARKS from the Childersburg, area? I think she was Mary Brown Yarbrough and that she married someone named Parks in 1870-1873. He apparently died by 1880, as she is living with daughter and son-in-law.
Any info you could give on Mary and her husband would be appreciated.

I have a great uncle James Parks that lived in the Johnstown, PA area. Which Talledega county are you referring to in your post?

James Park was last living in Seward, Pa and probably has passed away by now. My father is 80 so his uncle would be 100 or more years!

I don't have a middle name or initial.

My Parks' who traveled from Northern Georgia, moved to Talledaga County, Alabama in the late 1850's.
The head of family was William Parks who was born abt 1826 in S.C. His wife was Sarah Haynes Parks, born in GA.
The children were Mary, Zachariah, Sarah, Lavinia, James and Martha. All the children except Martha were born in GA. Martha was born in Alabama.
They were in Talladega County in 1860. In the next few years, I believe they moved to Clay County. William Parks served in the Confederate Army, 14th infantry, Company H which was base out of Tallapoosa County.
In his army papers, it does state that he lived in Hackneyville and joined in Pinkneyville (or visa versa).
Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions.

Talledega County, Alabama being not far removed from Tallapoosa County, Alabama, I wonder if you have information on the Parks family from there? My great-grandfather, Andrew Jackson Parks, migrated there in the mid-1800's and produced quite a few Parkses. I have a good deal of information on that family if you are interested and would like to know if you have any information beyond Andrew. Have not been able to find who his parents were.
