I'm looking for descendents of a John Parker and his unk. Carnell wife...She was the dau. of Hubbard Carnell and Eliz. Dixon and appears to have died in the early 1840s and we need her given name and more about their children... I don't know if John Parker and family lived in Humphreys Co. TN for I can't seem to find them on the 1840 Humphreys Co. TN census.
John Parker died mid 1846 as to what I can find online and I'm sure that his Carnell wife died before him for John W. Carnell, son of Hubbard, took over guardianship of John Parker's minor children when he died.
The children were Rufus N. b. c1831, Asa G. b. c1835, Katherine E. b. c1837, Leona C. b. c1839, Pystil M. b. c1841, they are all found on the 1850 Humphreys Co. TN census in different home of their family.
I've also been told there was a dau. of John Parker and Carnell wife named Lilly Ann Parker who marr. an Eli Hooper before 1850, they also appear on the 1850 Humphreys Co. TN census. Lilly Ann was born c1825 so she may have been their first child...
I'm descended from a Frances A. Parker who was born, according to census, 1826-1830 and most census say in Tenn. but some say Alabama. My Frances marr. a Hamilton H. Wood c1847 but we can't find a marr. record for them either. This leads me to believe maybe H.H. and Frances marr. in Humphreys Co. I was told the early marr. records for Humphreys Co. TN were destroyed by fire.
My Wood tree were in Humphreys Co. TN from before 1819 when H.H. was born until the mid to late 1820s. They went to Greene Co. AL from Humphreys Co. and into Chickasaw Co. MS in the late 1830s to early 1840s. We can't find them on the 1840 census either...
I sure would like to correspond with anyone who believes they descend from any of the children of John Parker and his unk. Carnell wife, thanks, Kay Woods.
