I don't recognize the names of the Walker's named in your post but I am also looking families with the surname Parker in Polk County, Texas.My Walker family is African American.I am posting information on the families of origin of both my great grandfather Pleasant Walker who was born in Mississippi in 1849 and my grandfather Pleas Walker who was born in Polk County, Texas in 1876.
This is the family my grandfather was born into, I have not been able to verify his mother Minerva's maiden name.I do know that she and Pleasant were divorced and she later married a man by the name of King Roberts.
Father: Pleasant Walker – Born 1849 in Mississippi Mother:Minerva Walker – Born 1853 in Alabama Daughter:Susie Walker – Born 1870 in Polk County, Texas Son:Willie Walker - Born in 1871 in Polk County, Texas Son:Floyd Walker – Born 1874 in 1874 in Polk County, Texas Pleas Walker – Born 1876 in Polk County, Texas Dennis Walker Born in 1879 in Polk County, Texas At some point after 1879 Pleasant and Minerva were divorced. Minerva then had three more children: Bessie and Dessie Mayo who were twins, they were born in Polk County, Texas in 1892 Jeffery Mayo was also born in Polk County, Texas in 1893
This is the family my mother Essie LaPearl(Walker) Herd was born into:
Pleas Walker – Born 1876 in Polk County, Texas / Married Lizzie Hood /Mollie Parker Mollie Parker- – Born 1883 in Polk County, Texas / married Pleas Walker Mary Walker daughter of Pleas and Lizzie (Hood) Walker Lizzie Walker daughter of Pleas and Lizzie (Hood) Walker Leonard Walker son of Pleas and Lizzie (Hood) Walker

These are the children of Pleas Walker's sister Dessie who was born without the ability to hear or speak. She lived with her brother Pleas' family.
