Hi! You bet I know about Matilda. I have a picture of her taken in the 1880's. I found her grave in Elmira, Solano, California where her son Drury Fletcher Parker lived. I know all her children and their families, pretty much, but James was killed 18 May 1846 probably in Lee County Virginia. My Great uncle went back there and searched through the courthouses in dusty old books, and through countless cemeteries and didn't find him. How do you fit in the picture? I can send you a gedcom of my Parkers if you give me your address. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org
We have looked and looked for James 's family which is supposedly William and Elizabeth Farmer Parker, of North Carolina.
