    Notes:

    Born on 8 Apr 1824 in Claiborne County, Tennessee, Henderson came with his family to Whitley County, Kentucky, as a boy. On 3 Oct 1844, when he was 20, Henderson first married Sarah S. Patrick, daughter of Bryant Patrick & Nancy Davis, in Whitley County, Kentucky. Sally was born 13 Jan 1831 in North Carolina. Henderson was disabled in the course of his Army service during the Civil War, and never really recovered. About two months before his discharge from the Army, their oldest daughter died in childbirth. Sally's health was so impaired during the Civil War that she finally died in Whitley County on 2 Mar 1867, at the age of 36, when her youngest children (twins) were only 4 years old. He then married Nancy White[...] After 1880, Henderson, Nancy, and their unmarried children moved from Whitley County, Kentucky, to Piney in Franklin County, Arkansas. Henderson, Nancy, and some of their children later moved to Wister, Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, where Henderson died on 11 Mar 1898; he was 73. He is buried in City Cemetery, Wister, Oklahoma.

    Note: According to worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=tvdavis&id=I18008, "William Henderson was a severe asthmatic and had to sleep sitting up at night because he could not lie down, which made his breathing difficult. A part, if not all, of his treatment was smoking some kind of pipe with a medication in it."

    A Pension Office document dated 14 Jan 1886, a photocopy of which is held by P & T Nielsen Hayden, states that he was disabled by "paralysis caused by wading in water waist deep."

    Notes:

    "According to the memoir of his grandson Chrisman Harrison Parker, John fought in the War of 1812, and was at the Battle of New Orleans when the British General Packenham was killed." [Parker's Genealogy & History Establishment]

    From the memoir of Chrisman Harrison Parker:

    "I have heard my grandfather tell how the Torys came and robed his mother while that war was going on; - They come one day; and robed the house; - taking the bedding; emtying the feather-beds or ticks over the ground. The feathers come of them rising above the tops of the trees. They then went into the feild and striped the harness off the horse granfather was plowing, and led Him away. - By this time they had gathered the sheep and cattle; - and horses and drove them away. Lleving my great grandmother and her children destitute - undaunted she geathered leaves to sleep on; living as best she could. Clothed her children and cotten and Flaxe, garments of her own make; - The next morning after the robery; she geathered her children and all the hoes and went into the feild. Those who had hoes howed those who had none pulled weeds and grass: - at last the war ceased, and great grandfather come home, and settled down to honest toil. Where he lived and died.

    "My granfather grew up in in North Carolina, and maired there, and when my father was three years olde mooved to Tennsee: where he raised his family. In the War of 1812. Granfather Parker, entered the servis of his country and was at Battle of New Orleans when Pakenham was killed.

    "My mother, - Celety - Harrison, Parker lost two brothers in the War of 1812. I have heard my mother say grandmother Harrison kept the clothing of her two lost sons as long as she lived; and once a year would look them over; and weep as she folded them up and laid them carfully away."

  3. 10.  William "Billie" Davis was born 1776, North Carolina; died Bef 3 Dec 1864, Whitley, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    [The paragraph below is from http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kmparker, evidently from info provided by Patrick's late aunt Nancy Jonckheere.]

    "Born in 1776 in North Carolina, Billie Davis was famous as a trapper, guide and explorer. He had a disagreement with a bear and lost his arm as a result, but it was the bear who lost the fight. Later, one-armed Billie became sheriff of Whitley County, an office he held for many years. He had considerable presence and could handle just about any problem with words alone. Nancy Jonckheere once found online a copy of an old North Carolina election handout from about 1850, which said was that the candidate was endorsed by 'Billie Davis, the famous one-armed sheriff of Whitley County, Kentucky.' By 1795, when Billie was 19, he was already married to Sarah Rapier, who was born about 1779 in North Carolina. Her brother Jesse moved to Whitley County, Kentucky, as well. Billie and Sarah both lived to a ripe old age and died in Whitley County: Sarah between 1860 and 1870, when she was at least 81 years old; and Billie in 1864 at the age of 88."

    *****

    We wonder if he wasn't born significantly later than 1776. According to the records of the Kentucky Assembly, William Davis was sheriff of Whitley County in 1848 and 1849, at which time he would have been 72 and 73 years old if he was in fact born in 1776. Memory and oral traditions often exaggerate the age-at-death of particularly colorful individuals.

    More absurdly, multiple ancestry.com trees claim that this William Davis is the Union soldier who died on 6 October 1864 and is buried at Cave Hill National Cemetery in Louisville, Kentucky. We have no idea how they imagine that an 82-year-old man was serving as a Union private.

    From Ancestry of Elizabeth Louise White by Steven C. Perkins:

    He was probably born 1750-55, as Nancy Jonckheere states that in 1777 he sold land inherited from his father, Richard. Was this the 330 acres in Bute County that he was devised? At that time he was stated to be a planter from Craven County. CHECK

    He was probably born in Warren County, N.C., and about 1798 he came to the portion of Knox that is now Whitley County. He died between June and October 1829, based upon his appearance in Whitley County Court as a Commissioner in June and an Order in October that his son, Dempsey, return court records. CHECK whitley order book 1 for his signature. He is probably in an unmarked grave at Redbird; there is a marker for a John White, but the date of death appears to be 1896.

    A John White was a taxpayer in Warren County, North Carolina in 1784. North Carolina Taxpayers, supra, v.2, p.217. A John White was a purchaser at an estate sale in Franklin County, N.C., confirmed in June of 1796, Bradley, Will Book B of Franklin County, North Carolina 1784-1804, 929.375654 qB811b 1988, p.16 and at a sale on 10 January 1799, p.38.

    A John White is on the Knox tax rolls for 1804, with 300 acres of 2d class land on the Cumberland, 2 horses and 6 slaves. A John White appears in the 1810 and 1820 Knox County censuses, and in Lincoln County before that; a John White is on an 8/3/1790 Lincoln tax list. John White and John White, Sr. appear on an 1816 Knox County tax list. A John White appears on a 1788 Fayette County tax list, as do two Williams and a James. Some Pre-1800 Kentucky Tax Lists, supra, p.11. CHECK

    On 28 September 1826 he granted Demcey (sic) White (a Whitley County resident) a Power of Attorney to deal with legacies he might be entitled to from the estates of his father, Richard White, or his mother, Elizabeth, in Franklin County, North Carolina. Whitley County Deed Book 1, p.145-6. Mark White was stated to be the Executor of Richard and Sherrod Celly/Kinney the administrator of Elizabeth. Decker (p. 305) says that Knox County Revolutionary War Veterans included John White of Virginia, and says that he is thought to have settled in Knox in about 1804; if so, that would not [may not] be our John.

    *****

    The "Demcey" White mentioned above is almost certainly the Dempsey White who is recorded in Collins's History of Kentucky as a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives for Whitley County in 1833, 1835, 1838, and 1839; he was a son of this John White, and his daughter Nancy White (1838-1928) was the second wife of Patrick's greatX3-grandfather William Henderson Parker (1824-1898).

    Notes:

    From Steven C. Perkins:

    "Born in New Haven, CT, before the American Revolution, he was raised in a Loyalist household in the North Carolina back country. As a child he saw his father, Timothy, and paternal uncle, Joseph, join the Loyalist forces against the Americans. According to contemporary accounts, his father and uncle were 'notorious Tories' who one time captured Col. Cleveland, an American commander and virtual warlord in the New River settlements. While being held for trial by the Loyalists, Cleveland was able to escape, supposedly with the help of one of the women of the household. The family were early Methodists.

    "By 1784 a guardian was appointed for Jabez in Wilkes Co., NC. Normally, one would assume this to mean that his father was dead. However, there is some evidence that Timothy Perkins was alive and living in Grayson Co., VA. Shortly after the guardian was appointed, Jabez appears to have married and moved to Grayson Co., VA, where several of his children were born. In 1789, he was appointed administrator to the estate of his maternal Uncle, William Sperry, in Wilkes Co., NC. It is not yet known if William Sperry was a Loyalist or if he supported the Americans in the Revolution.

    "By 1813 he was in the Knox/Whitley Co. KY, area. Sometime after 1830, already 65 years old, he moved his family to the Bureau/Putnam Co. Illinois area. He and his sons purchased land in 1835 and 1836. By December of 1835 he had returned to Whitley Co., KY, where he made his will and died before February 13, 1836. Jabez' son William returned to Whitley Co. and remained there the rest of his life. The rest of Jabez' children remained in Illinois or moved further West.

    "Some researchers have identified Jabez' wife as Nancy Ann Creekmore. I am not convinced that this is correct. I am also not convinced that his wife at the time he made his will is the mother of his children. [...] There is the possibility that there were two wives named Nancy. There is a renunciation of the will dated in Feb 1836 from Nancy Perkins in Whitley Co., KY, Will Book 1. There is a report of a marriage license for Jabez Perkins and Nancy White dated the same day the will was made. It is supposed to be in the KY Archives. This compiler has not seen it."

    Jabez married Nancy. [Group Sheet]
