I am wondering if we have any connection regarding Mary Kidd, or any other connections? My maternal great-grandmother was MARY ELLEN KIDD (??nee:Younka:?), she was supposed to have a first husband of John Kidd Sr. or Jr.,
I am not sure if it was Sr. or JR??? This was either her 1st marriage in York, Penn>?, or maybe my great-great maternal grandmother, who was supposed to be Little Flower (her Cherokee/Iroquios name, and I was told by a relative her name was IRENE YOUNKA???F(MAIDEN NAME)? Please if you feel that there may be a connection, please email me at either: LittleRainbowWanda12002@yahoo.com, or Little RainbowBabyWanda@hotmail.com.

Thanks and Good Luck.

Surnames: Parkes family - re late 1700's surnames in Armagh
I know your post was a long time ago, but I am trying to help a friend with her family tree, and I think we have a mutual ancestor in James Parkes, son of William Parkes and Mary Kidd of Armagh County. James we believe was born in 1850, in Armagh County, and we know he came to Garston, Liverpool. James married Mary Jane Gerrard, in 1875 in Liverpool Lancashire. They had 9 children together, Robert Joseph Parkes b. 1891, Archibald Parkes b. 1876, William John Parkes b. 1874, Matthew James Parkes, b. 1884, Sarah E. J. Parkes b. 1888, Maude Ann Parkes b. 1893, Samuel Herbert Parkes b. 1896, George Henry Parkes b. 1878 and Mary Eliza Parkes b. 1872. My friend's maternal grandfather was Robert Joseph Parkes b. 1891 who married Florence Anna Long in 1916. Robert died in 1962. Can you give me any information on siblings/other family members of James Parkes? Thanks for your help.
