  • Notes 
    • "John married Jane. According to [great-grandson] Chrisman Parker's memoir, John and his wife raised their children in North Carolina, where their family farm was raided by the Tories while John was away fighting for his country's freedom, and where John lived out his days. Many people believe that our John who later moved to Tennessee and then Kentucky was the John Parker who married Elizabeth Carrell in Wilkes County, North Carolina, on January 9, 1793 and was bondsman for the marriage of William Parker and Candace Austin there on October 28, 1801; that his father was the John Parker who died leaving a will in Wilkes County in 1791, naming his wife Mary, step-daughter Maryann Coons, and his children John, William, James, and Diana. That may be true, but since there are so many Johns and Elizabeths, it's difficult to be sure that you've got the right people." [Parker's Genealogy & History Establishment]

      The memoirs of his great-grandson Chrisman Harrison Parker (1823-1914) state that this John Parker was born in England.
