Thank you for responding. I have read the wills. Are the two other Parkers related to Lucy Parker and her father, William?
Do you know who William's parents were? Lucy's brother, Richard, is my gggrandfather on my Father's side.

I noticed the name Drury Andrews in your message and wondered if there would be a connection to a William Andrews in NC. His son William, married Permelia ___. They moved to Tennessee between 1850-1860. Their son, Littleberry Baker Andrews moved to Graves County, KY.

Thanks.

Bob,

Did you ever by any chance order copies of Drury's bounty land grant files? I am hoping it would provide his parents names.

I would love to know what the source is on the names of his parents.

sister was Mary (Polly) who married Isham Beasley who also resided in Smith Co. Their Father was Thomas whose wife was a Susannah.

Bob,

Thank you for your response, but what is the source for John and Feriby being the parents?

I know you sent me the package of information, mostly from the Fayette FActs, but no source was ever given for citing John and Feriby for their parents.

Do you have a marriage record for one of them stating that John and Feriby are their parents? I'd love to know the sources for this.

thanks so much!
Jenny
