I have a Parker ancestor whose husband was from Delaware County. My ggg
grandfather, George Wilcox (of Delaware County, NY) married Hannah
Parker, who was born 3 APR 1807 in Verona, Oneida, New York according to
RootsWeb and LDS sources. Hannah died on Jul 15 1836 and was buried in
Oakwood Cemetery, Summerfield Township, Monroe County, Michigan. Her
father, Joshua Parker, was buried in Raisinville Twp., Monroe, MI,
according to RootsWeb and LDS sources, and came from Wallingford, New
Haven, CT (LDS) or Connecticut (1850 Census). Adjacent to what I think
is his 1850 Census record in the Township of Dundee is a Morgan Parker,
aged 30 and from New York, but Morgan is a loose end in that I do not
finding him in any RootsWeb genealogies. Does anybody have
documentation pertaining to this?

I'd like to begin a discussion of earliest Parker families in
if and how they are related. My focus is to learn who were parents of Dolly
Parker 1756-1836, wife of John Cook in Colchester. Family lore says John &
Dolly met at Monmouth NJ when she found him the next morning among those fallen
in battle and took him to her physician father's home to nurse back to health.
One other mention that may help is that one of the Amasa Parkers is her cousin.
During the Revolution families moved around, so I don't necessarily expect they
be from Monmouth or even NJ, or that any particular Amasa's relationship is
definite as cousin, only that they're related.
To kick it off there are biographies on the DCNY history site
that I looked into but don't find a Dolly or
physician to connect. Next best-guess leads me to wonder if Capt Wyman Parker
1753-1821, wife Mercy Gillette, his parents Nicholas Parker & Mary Converse,
could be her brother - birth years close, & living nearby, Revolution service,
& they had a son Amasa 1784-1844.
Who's got Parkers, and whatcha got?
