    Notes provided by John Ira Parker of Elko, Nevada to Laura Greene, 1999, from his family records:

    Solomon Parker was born August 25, 1804 in Edwardsburg, Johnston, Ontario, Canada. He was the eighth child of Robert James Parker and Providence Miller. He married first Ann Custin of Preston, second Nancy Welch, and third Mary Catherine Green. Solomon Parker immigrated from Canada to Utah in 1856 and recorded in Journal Histories October 15, 1856 and September 20, 1856 (pages 1-8), "Solomon Parker and family came from Canada as passengers on Capt. Knud Peterson's ox train, which arrived in Great Salt Lake on September 1856. (250 Scandinavians), 14 wagon English emigrants. Left Florence, Nebraska about June 10, 1856. Joseph Parker was also a passenger. While in Canada, Solomon Parker bought on March 5, 1851 100 acres of land from George T. Goodhue in Middlesex. Paid 7 pounds (N 1/2 lot N. Con) Solomon sold on April 28, 1856 100 acres of land to Thomas Cook for 312 pounds 10 shillings. The sale of the land was immediately before his departure for Utah. Solomon Parker spent the last years of his life with a couple of his sons from his marriage to Nancy Welch in Deer Lodge, Montana, and died there May 8, 1884.

    [Found on rootsweb] This note written by Lillian Millett on the back of an old family group sheet. This was written to Alfred and Orva Freestone when they were on a mission in Canada where this family originally came from:

    "When Solomon Parker died he was in Montana, with a daughter who was not a member of the church. He left his genealogy on these names under his pillow and asked that they be given to Grandma (Lydia Ann Parker his daughter). He said 'Annie will know what to do with these names'. So when Grandma Packer (Lydia Ann) died they were all assembled in the front room at Grandma's house and there some miraculous way, the names fell into Aunt Clara's lap. When they examined them, they were these same names, which she and Aunt Janie then went to Salt Lake temple and did the work. I have had a hard time trying to connect them, as very little explanation was given, but we know they are close relatives, because of what Grandpa Solomon Parker said about them. You can understand my feeling about location and mission in that area.

    "I have a record of a land grant to William and Margaret Welch for 400 acres of land. It was petitioned for in New Johnstown (now Cornwall) in 15 May 1797. It was granted on 17 May 1802 in Mountain Dundas. (Lots 24 and 22). This Margaret was the daughter of John Rudeback (a Loyalist). I think we have two Margarets who married Williams but it is not proven. I wonder if it ever will be?"

    Solomon married Nancy Jane Welch in Dec 1826. Nancy was born on 7 Jan 1811 in Mountain, Dundas, Ontario; died on 16 Dec 1850 in Ekfrid, Middlesex, Ontario. [Group Sheet]


  2. 3.  Nancy Jane WelchNancy Jane Welch was born on 7 Jan 1811 in Mountain, Dundas, Ontario; died on 16 Dec 1850 in Ekfrid, Middlesex, Ontario.

    Notes:

    Given on many unsourced online trees as a daughter of William Welch and Margaret Rudeback (or Rudebach), herself a daughter of John and Catarina Rudeback.

    We know her maiden name was Welch from documents such as the death records of her children.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Thomas Parker was born on 21 Sep 1737 in of Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey (son of David Parker and Mary Rhea); died on 31 Jul 1822 in Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey; was buried in Old Tennant Churchyard, Tennent, Monmouth, New Jersey.

    Notes:

    Some sources, including his Find a Grave page, claim him as a veteran of the American Revolution. In the graveyard in which he is buried, a modern stone lists inhabitants of Tennant who fought in that war, and that list includes a "Thos. Parker." But our Thomas Parker would have been 39 when the Declaration was signed. Parker in America (citation details below), citing Salter's 1890 history of Monmouth County, says that the third son of this Thomas Parker and Amy James was another Thomas, and it seems to us likelier that he's the "Thos. Parker" referred to on the stone.

    DNA testing by the Parker Family DNA Project suggests that this Thomas Parker was a descendant of Elisha Parker, born in England about 1630, who married Elizabeth Hinckley and died either in Barnstable, MA or Perth Amboy, NJ. Several unsourced family trees say that Thomas's father David was son of Thomas, son of another Thomas (wife, Mary Mott; he is said to have left the Plymouth colony and settled in or near Staten Island), son of Elisha Parker and Elizabeth Hinckley. Elizabeth Hinckley was a sister of Thomas Hinckley (1618-1706), the last governor of the Plymouth colony.

    The DNA results also suggest that this Elisha Parker was closely related to Robert Parker, also born around 1630, who emigrated to the Plymouth colony and lived in Barnstable.

    Thomas married Amy James on 31 Oct 1761. Amy (daughter of Robert James) was born on 14 Jun 1749 in Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey; died in Mar 1778 in Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey. [Group Sheet]


  2. 9.  Amy James was born on 14 Jun 1749 in Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey (daughter of Robert James); died in Mar 1778 in Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey.
