Andrew Jackson Tanker/Tankard aka Parks
We are searching for any connections to Andrew Jackson Tankard or Tanker who was born between 1830 and 1833. His parents are unknown. He was raised in Coshocton & Putnam County, Ohio by Doctor George Parke and Maria. Doctor Parke died in 1864. Maria married George Miller in 1864, and Andrew married Elizabeth Wyant in Ohio in 1865 as Andrew Jackson Parks. An old family story has it that Andrew's mother may have died in childbirth, and his father continued on the journey west. He left Andrew with the doctor, promising to return for him, but never did. On different censuses, Andrew lists his place of birth as NY, NJ, and MD. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
