Generation: 3

  1. 4.  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] [Family Chart]
