Hi Helen, Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! First of all you are definetly related to John J Peppers and Ester Whaley. The DNA test proved that beyond all doubts. Your nephew's test matched perfectly. When I looked at the gedcom file I have forJohn J Peppers, I found at least 3 Parker Peppers. Parker Sr.was a son of John J. Parker Sr. seems to have been married 3 times. Fist to Nancy Hastell. They had 2 sons Parker Jr. and John. His next wife was Matilda Jenkins and they had a son Kelly anda daughter Mahala. His third wife was Nancy Hayalot with no children listed. I only have minimal information on John J. Sr. - born about 1770 in Pa. and died about 1850. Esther Whaley - born September 14, 1770 in Sinepuron, Worcester County, MD. You may want to contact Karen Zander at firstname.lastname@example.org She is from this family and has been researching it for some time. Unfortunetly, my wife's Pepper family is not related as DNA testing has shown.
