Silas Mercer Parker born 1802.
His father was John Parker born Sep. 6, 1758 in Baltimore County, Maryland. He moved to Culpepper County, Virginia before 1777. John served his country in the Revolutionary War as a volunteer in Slaughter's Virginia Regiment under Captian Fields. After one year he was released from service and returned home. He married and started a family only to be drafted for another year of service in 1779. He served in Col. Alexander's Virginia Regiment under Capt. Collier. After the war ended, they moved to Georgia where John was an elder at his church. From then on he was known to all as Elder John Parker. John was later a Baptist Church member. They then moved to Tennessee and had more children but eventually moved on to Crawford County, Illinois were they lived in a Fort. Some of the family settled in Coles County, Illinois and remained there. Most of the family held John's high views of religion and Daniel, his son was perticularly talented in debate and became a religious leader and statesman. About 1832, Joseph, James, Daniel and Benjamin moved to Texas. Joseph and James and their families settled in Grimes County, Texas. Daniel came later and moved his congregation with him, a select group who followed his doctrines and beliefs. That group became the Pilgram Church. Fifteen members of his church and his peer Elder Garrison Greenwood all came with Daniel to Texas. The congregations first meeting in Texas occurred in Austin's Colony. The Mexican government did not allow any other organized religions except for the Catholic Faith, so Daniel went around the laws by forming his church elseware - in Illinois, and bringing them to Texas after the fact. Daniel settled in Elkhart, Anderson County, Texas, Joseph moved to Houston County, and Isaac settled in Weatherford, Texas. where Parker county was later named for him. Elder John, Silas, James W. and Benjamin all located in the northern part of Limestone County. The built a fort for protection and called it Fort Parker. Living at the fort were Elder John, Silas M. and his family, James W. and his wife Martha and six children, Rachel and her husband L. T. M. Plummer and their son, Sarah and her husband L. D. Nixon, James W., John Jr., Francis M, Martha M., and baby Sally, Benjamin Parker whose family had stayed in Illinois, "Granny" Duty, Mrs. Nixon mother of Lucinda, Elizabeth Kellogg, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Frost and their two grown children, the Dwights and their two children. Elder John, Benjamin, Silas M., Robert and Samuel Frost were all killed by the Comanche Indians at Navasota on May 19, 1836 in Fort Parker, Limestone County, Texas. The men were buried on the fort grounds and because the fort was not rebuilt, the grounds later became the Groesbeck Cemetery. Granny Duty was pinned to the ground with a lance and tortured, but let free to wonder the woods. Rachel Plummer, son James Pratt, Rachel's aunt Mrs. Elizabeth Kellogg were taken captive. Cynthia Ann, her brother John, were also taken captive by another group of Indians who chased Lucy Duty Parker as she tried to flee the fort, but was surrounded in the field. She and her two other small children were spared when other men came from the field towards the Indians who escaped with the two children. One theory by W. W. Newcomb Jr., author of The Indians of Texas suggests that the Parker family actually brought the whole event upon themselves when Mr. Parker was accused of horse theft in the company of indians, though no convicted of it. Newcomb also suggested that Parker may have cheated the indians out of the profits and thus provoked the attack on Fort Parker.
His mother was Sarah "Sally" White born Jul. 10, 1759 in Culpepper County, Virginia to the father of Benjamin White - first supreme court judge of Culpepper County. She died on Jul. 28, 1821 in Crawford County, Illinois.
