I first found my Henry Parker b 1797 on the 1850 census of Montrose, Lee Co. IA. USA. His daughter Sophie b 1830 was also on it. It showed both born England. They were not on an 1840 census anywhere in the US. I checked the 1841 census in England and found Henry Parker with daughter Sophie in Louth, Lincolnshire, England. Both their ages were right on. Also listed was wife Mary and an older daughter Hellen. Neither were on the 1850. Henry was listed as widower. OF note, is that Sophie's first and only daughter was named Hellen Angeline. FHC has birthdates that could be both Henry, Sophie's, and Hellen. Also of Henry's parents and brothers years. All born in Beckingham, Lincolnshire. The daughters both in Louth. So sometime after 1841 Henry left England, Mary died, Hellen either died or was married. Would anyone have any knowledge of this family of Parker?
