Search for Final Resting Place of 4thGreat Grandparents,
John Park (1773-1828) & Polly Peeler (1774-1851)
Station Camp Creek, Estill Co., KY
My name is William D. Park and I currently live inHurricane, WV (Putnam County) with my wife, Pamela and our 4 children, rangingin age from 17 to 3. I am the Senior Aerospace Science Instructor, managing theAFJROTC program at Charleston’s George Washington High School. Although, I live in West Virginia, 7generations of my Park Family have lived primarily in the Richmond,Irvine, and Wagersville areas of Kentucky, beginning in 1796 when my 5thGreat Grandparents, Ebenezer Park, Sr. (1747-1839) and Tabitha Mills(1752-1826), came to Madison County on horseback with their 10 children fromSalisbury, North Carolina (Rowan Co.), including their oldest son and my 4thGreat Grandfather, John Park (1773-1828), traveling to Kentucky by way of theWilderness Trail, on the heels of another Pioneer, the infamous Daniel Boone.
The reason for this summary is to provide information andrequest assistance in finding any information on my 4th GreatGrandparents, John Park, born in Rowan Co., NC on Nov 19, 1773, and wife, Mary“Polly” Peeler, formerly of Cheraw, SC; including their final resting place(burial location). Widow Polly, lived with William J.Clark Family in Estill Co., KY in 1850 (Later of Lexington, KY), including herdaughter and William’s wife, Matilda Park. John and Polly weremarried on June 6, 1793 in Salisbury of Rowan County, NC. Polly, was born inRowan County on Christmas Day 1774, the daughter of Anthony Peeler, Sr.(1734-1804) & Annica Coon (Kuhn) (1742-1815) and granddaughter of MichaelKuhn (1689-1765) & Catherine Carr (b. c. 1705) from Beulah, Germany in 1753(Michael was naturalized in Rowan Co., NC on Sep 22, 1763). The Peelerswere one of the chief families of the Shiloh, German Reformation Church. NellPark Gum in her 1929 book, “Park of Kentucky”, writes that John Park was a mosthighly esteemed citizen and a man of consideration as one of the leadingfarmers in Estill County, KY. He alsoserved as Sheriff (1825-1826), County Magistrate, Justice of the Peace and inother official capacities as well. Polly’s parents are buried in Daniel PeelerCemetery in Cherokee Falls, SC. Of Polly Park, author Nell Park Gum, twicedescended from my 5th Great Grandfather, Eb Park, Sr., wrote thatshe was “noted for her beauty” and “many of her descendants have inherited this quality from her.” In later years though, she was blind and hadto be led about by a small Negro girl. Nelldescribes the apportionment of the 400 acres of land given to John and hisbrothers, Asa, Eb Park, Jr., and Jonathan by their father, Eb Park, Sr., asfollows:
“Ebenezer bought 400 acres of land on Station Camp Creek,Kentucky, practically at the mouth of Middle Fork. To his four oldest sons, he deeded one hundred acres each. He made a most remarkable division of thisland. To Asa, he gave the lower tract;to Ebenezer, Jr., the upper tract, and to Jonathan the next lower tract. These three tracts were all located on theeast side of Station Camp Creek. ToJohn, he gave the land on the “west” side of the creek. The four hundred acres were so divided thateach son received the same number of acres of low land and each son receivedthe same number of acres of hill land and each had Station Camp Creekwatercourse (Listed on April 6, 1807 as listed in Deed Book F., pg. 375)”.
This land is described as “lying and being on South Forkof Station Camp Creek”. Surveydescription is as follows: “Beginning at the white oak tree onthe side of a mountain, hence 85 degrees, east 26 poles to an elm on thebank of Station Camp Creek, thence down the creek which meandersto a box elder in Ebenezer Park’s (Sr.) line, thence with his line thencenorth 35 degrees east and 120 poles to a maple, corner to said Parks, thencesouth 30 degrees east, 170 poles to the beginning.” Having recently reviewed John Park’s 1807 deed, as well as thoseof his brothers, Asa; Ebenezer, Jr.; and Jonathan, for that same year (obtainedfrom the EKU Special Collections & Archives), I discovered that thegeographical term “South Fork” at that time, actually placed these tracts alongthe “Main Branch” of Station Camp Creek and in the vicinity ofWagersville-Station Camp settlements. In reality, the “South Fork” Branchoriginates south of both Station Camp Creek and its “Middle Fork”. Careful examination of topographical mapsfor John Park’s 1807 land, reveal that it’s western border is nestled within arather tight, yet rounded bend of Station Camp Creek, at precisely the locationwhere “Jones Branch” feeds into it from the East, where it transits hisbrother, Asa Park’s land.
Thus, some of thebottomland on John Park’s 100-acre landholding is surrounded on 3 sides bywater, with the creek as its easternmost boundary. The western boundary consists primarily of the foothills ofWilson Mountain, where I believe that John’s house and barn were built, inorder to prevent flood damage and offer what must have proved to be anattractive view of both the farm and surrounding watercourse. I estimate John’s house was probablylocated at 37.62 degrees North and 83.96 degrees West. John’s brother, Colonel Eli Park(1787-1858), War of 1812, also possessed land, though in Madison County, whichlike John’s land, was surrounded on 3 sides by water (Drowning Creek). This is the land where my father and Iresearched and discovered my 5th Great Grandparents’ final restingplace (Eb Park, Sr. and Tabitha Mill) on 30 June 2000.
Access to John’s1807 tract from east and west, is by way of a rural, narrow, paved farm road,also known as “Murphy’s Ford Rd. that passes through it. I believe some of John’s tract may also be visiblefrom a small bridge on Rt. 89 (runs south from Irvine to Wagersville) thatcrosses Station Camp Creek just north of the mouth of it’s Middle Fork (Eb, Sr.Land) which can be seen from the bridge (Grist Mill owned and operated by Parksthere in 1800s) and not far from “Knapper’s Branch”, which like Jone’s Branch,also feeds into Station Camp Creek nearby. I am also in possession of a court indenture certifying a deed, datedMay 2, 1814 (pg. 251) for land sold by John White and his wife, Hannah ofMadison County, to John Park, my 4th Great Grandfather of EstillCounty, for 150 pounds. This land wasoriginally part of a 2,000-acre land grant to John Woods. Deed processed and certified on June 1, 1814by Robert S. Clark, Clerk. This landappears to be a northern extension of John Park’s original Station Campproperty (1807).
In the Office of theClerk of Estill County in the first will book, page 332, is an inventory ofJohn Park’s property and appraisement of the slaves and other personal estates,bearing the date March 3, 1828. Unfortunately, John died “Intestate”, thatis to say, without a will. This entrymentions death by “accident”, though the specific cause is NOT stated.Furthermore, an Estill County Vital Statistics Book notes the following aboutthe court process to divide the property amongst his heirs, including survivingchildren & spouses:
19 October 1830 - John Richardson vs. John Parks heirs--saleof land and slaves on 6 June 1829 for $2497. $900 to Henry Dillingham asguardian for Matilda and John Park, making advancement to each heir $450;whereas John Richardson and Barbara (Park) his wife, Jonah Parks, John Boyd andBetsy (Park) his wife vs. John Parks. John died intestate,leaving Barbara, Betsy, and orator Jonah together with Solomon Park, CharityDillingham, wife of Henry Dillingham, Elihu Park, Matilda Park, SimpsonPark, and John Park--his heirs and his widow, Polly. Slaves named Bob, Harvey,Milly, Hardin, Cinda, Randle, Rebecah, Mariah, Mary, Green, and a child namedBoston.
Theabove entry was at least in part, a legal battle, whereby John Richardson(married to Barbara Park, daughter of John Park & Mary Peeler) was the“complainant” and other heirs, consisting of the remaining children of John andPolly and their spouses, were identified as “defendants”, as evidenced by anEstill County Circuit Court document I possess. This document seems to finalize the sale of a portion of theproperty (probably the portion where the Park Homestead was located),specifically, 100 acres to Polly Peeler-Park, dated July 17, 1832, in whichPolly appeared in court with a deed for the land and subsequently received acertificate for it from Robert S. Clark, County Commissioner and co-executor,along with 2nd co-executor and John’s brother, Eb Park, Jr.
Recentdeeds received on 20 Dec 2001, from the EKU Special Collections and Archivesare:
(1) The original 100 acres alongStation Camp Creek as described by Nell Park-Gum above, given to John Park byhis parents, Eb Park, Sr. and Tabitha Mills on April 6, 1807 as listed inDeed Book F., pg. 375.
(2) 100 acres along “Blue LickFork of Station Camp Creek” in the vicinity of Owsley Run, listed on Aug8, 1832 in Deed Book U, pg. 314 (from John Snoddy), (previously thought tobe a portion of the land settlement to Polly Park above, 3 weeks earlier onJuly 17, 1832, 4 years after John’s death in Feb 1828!). Interestingly, this1832 deed mentions a house and farm on the tract, belonging to “JohnPark and his heirs”.
MyHypothesis though, has been that the remainsof John and Polly would be found on the original 1807 tract along Station CampCreek (or possibly the 1814 northern extension). It is also my belief that theowner of the “Blue Lick Fork of Station Camp Creek” land above, as acquiredfrom “John Snoddy”, is actually John’s son, John Park, Jr., born 12 Jan 1818 (24-yearsold in 1832). He married Louisa FrancisHume in 1840, the daughter of Larkin Hume and Nancy Moberly of Madison Co., KY(where Blue Lick Fork is located). Both John and Louisa are buried inRichmond Cemetery (Madison County).
Theyoungest son of John Park, Sr. and Polly Peeler, John Jr. died on 20 June 1903.Ironically, John Jr’s cousin, Lucinda Park, daughter of his Uncle, Eli Park,was also married to a Moberly Family member--Alfred Moberly of Madison County(Lucinda and Alfred are buried in Red Hill Cemetery near Panola, KY with JohnJr’s Uncle, Eli Park and Aunt, Winnaford Dillingham). It is interesting to note that a1995 UGS aerial photo I obtained, show 2 houses, a barn, and smokehouse on whatappears to be John, Sr.’s 1814 northern extension.
At least one of John Park, Jr.’s connections to John Snoddy(sold the Blue Lick Fork of Station Camp Creek tract above in Madison Co., KYto him for a gratuitous $1.00) appears to be as follows: “John Jr.'sson, John Simpson Park (b. along Station Camp Creek on 2 Apr 1852) marriedNancy Snoddy Smith, daughter of Hon. Wm Smith (prominent Richmond Lawyer) andElizabeth A. Parkes. Elizabeth was a direct descendant of John Snoddy ofNorth Carolina (maternal side) who came to KY with Daniel Boone.”
Review of 1830Estill Co., KY Census reveals that Polly (Peeler)Park was head of household with 2 sons
(10-15 yrs &15-20 yrs) and 1 daughter (10-15 years). In the 1840 Estill Co. KY Census, youngest son, John Park,Jr. (age 22, 1818-1903) was listed as head of household, living at home withPolly Park, his mother. No other family was in the household that year. InDecember 2001, I located the 1850 Estill Co., KY Census, anddiscovered that Polly, now a widow, was living with the William J. ClarkFamily, which puzzled me at first, until I realized that William’s wife wasMatilda Park, daughter of John Park and Polly Peeler! I believe that the family may have moved into Polly’s house, where she chose to stay in familiar surroundings; theimportance of this fact, reinforced by her blindness. Or it may be possiblethat William and Matilda either possessed or subsequently built a house onPolly’s 100 acres.

Co., KY, Marriage Records, Book A, page 95, daughter of JohnPark and Mary
Peeler. She was born November 30, 1815 in Estill Co.,Kentucky. William and Matilda are
buried in Lexington Cemetery, Lexington KY in Section D, Lot 3.
illiamJoseph Clark, wife Matilda Park, and their children were living in
household#190 in the 1850 Estill Co., KY, census. Also living with them was

According toDebbie Gurtis, 1860 Estill County Census is as follows with Pollyno longer shown. John Park’s (nowdeceased) 8-year old female slave, Elizabeth, who may have been Polly’s seeingguide, died of drowning on 20 June 1855.
I also believe that Polly was laid to rest next to herhusband, John Park, in close proximity to the house, probably in the foothillsof Wilson Mt., where she lived along Station Camp Creek (Main Watercourse) inEstill County, KY, before William Clark and Matilda Park moved to Lexington inFayette Co., sometime after 1860.

Extractsfrom Estill County Abstracts of Deeds and Mortgages from 1808-1863 on 28 March2002 yield clues as to the history of Polly’s farm and disposition as follows:
14 July1832 – “Robert S.Clark, Commissioner of the Estill County Court to Polly Park for $100.00. John Richardson vs. John Park heirs. Polly was the highest bidder. The tract (acres not listed) lying onStation Camp adjoining Runnel’s tract (Book E, Pg. 211). Interpreted: Related to case discussed above regardingPolly’s efforts to keep land after husband, John Park’s death, intestate.
30September 1844 –“William J. Clark (Polly’s Son-in-Law) and Matilda (Park), his wife; Elihu Park(Polly’s Brother-in-Law) & Mary, his wife; and Polly Park, received$1,050.00 from Woodson P. Richardson (John and Polly’s Grandson by wayof Daughter, Barbara Park m. John Richardson), for Clark and wife’s interest in100 acres on Station Camp Creek, the said Matilda Clark (Park), her interestfrom her father, and Elihu and wife, Mary, their interest that descended tothem from his father and Polly Park of 3/9 her dower rights of 100 acres ofland. John Park transfers any interesthe has in said farm (Book H., Pg. 74)”. Interpreted: Partial Saleof Farm other than Polly’s portion containing Park Homestead.
30December 1844 – SolomonB. Park and Mary, his wife, received $90.00 from Woodson P. Richardson, for 1/9of 100 acres on Station Camp Creek, where Richardson now lives. Part has been conveyed by deed by Mary Park(Polly), the rest assigned to her dower part in her deceased husband, John Park(Book H, Pg. 89).
Extractsfrom Estill County Abstracts of Deeds and Mortgages from 1808-1863 Cont. -
17December 1844 – “WilliamJ. Clark and Matilda, his wife, received $990.40 from Ansil Daniel, for houseand 2 lots in Irvine, KY, known as lots #36 & #37. Same conveyed by sheriffto William J. Clark
(Book H.,Pg. 91)”. Interpretation: Indicates possible preparation to move inwith mother-in-law, Polly Peeler-Park or beginning of transition to Lexington,KY in 1860.
18 April 1853 – Woodson P. Richardson (Polly Park’s Grandson) and Mariom,his wife, and John Richardson, Jr. and Barbara (Polly’s daughter) received$1,000 from Sidney D. Wagers and Simpson M. Wagers, for a 100 acre tract onStation Camp Creek, bounded by Ebenezer Park, Sr. (deceased 1839), James Berry,to back line of a patent described in a deed from Ebenezer Park to John Parkon 1 April 1807 (see above), recorded in Madison Co. (KY) etc. to the creekmeandering the creek to the beginning. Another tract on Station Camp patent toWoodson P. Richardson, beginning on east side of south fork of Station CampCreek on the point of a ridge, a corner between Woodson P. Richardson and HiramPark, then with said Richardson’s line to his corner, then SE 150 poles to asmall drain in Tobias Reynold’s line, then with Scrivner’s etc. to thebeginning. It is understood thatWoodson P. Richardson has sold two (2) boundaries of land of said tract toTobias Reynolds, supposed to contain 30 and 50 acres, and it is to be all ofthe land sold by heirs of John Richardson deceased to a party of the first part(Book K, Pg. 119)”. Interpreted(18 April 1853): Sale - portion ofJohn Park and Polly Peeler Farm. SincePolly is not found in Estill County’s death records 1852-1880, I believe shedied in 1851 and that some of farm interests were sold in 1853 as describedabove. Official death records in EstillCounty did NOT exist prior to 1852.
31 December 1859 – William J. Clark and Matilda Clark (Park), his wife,received $1,000 from John Park (Jr.) for two lots in Irvine with houses andimprovements, lots lying between Main Street and Back or High Street, and knownas Lots #2 & 3, bounded on the south by Lot #1 now owned by E.D. Stocktonand William P. Noland, north by Lot #4, owned by said Clark (Book I, Pg.415).” Interpreted: Last of housing assets, including William J.Clark and Matilda Park’s home, prior to moving to Lexington, KY (found there on1860 Fayette Co., KY Census).
UPDATE: On Sunday,24 March 2002, my father, William H. Park II and I, accompanied by friend,cousin and woodsman, Gary Estes of Irvine, KY, traveled to the site of JohnPark and Polly Peeler’s Farm along Station Camp Creek in Estill Co., KY asdescribed in the 1807 and 1814 (northern extension) deeds. These tracts actually run both sides ofMurphy’s Ford Rd. as it follows Station Camp Creek. On the east side of theroad is the crop area. The house, barn and cemetery appear to have been on theroad’s west side (entire farm is situated on the west side of Station Camp Creek).At the center of the Park Farm and north of their 1807 tract at the point whereJones Branch feeds into Station Camp Creek, is a high and rather pointedplateau (knoll) above the foothills of Wilson Mountain. According to topographical maps of thisarea, this knoll is situated 700 feet above sea level and offers a gorgeous,virtually centered view of the Park Farm, including Station Camp and it’stributary, Jones Branch. The house andbarn sat just below this ridge in the foothills (in close proximity to eachother, side-by-side) on a slope that offered refuge from the flood plain /bottomland (where crops were grown). Asmall stream ran down the mountain beside the house and across the farm whereit fed directly into Station Camp Creek to the east.
After, further exploration of the plateau (knoll) on theedge of the ridge overlooking the farm; we found ten (10) unmarked large andsmall field stones (slaves) there as discussed with James Bingham of KnapperBranch (Wagersville) the night before. This cemetery is actually verycharacteristic of other Park burial sites near Station Camp Creek, includingJohn’s brother, Asa, and Asa’s son, Hiram Park and Family. Additionally, thegravesite of John and Asa’s parent’s (formerly of Station Camp Creek, EstillCo.), Ebenezer Park, Sr. (1747-1839) and Tabitha Mills (1752-1852), asdiscovered on their farm (later occupied by son, Col Eli Park and wife,Winnaford Dillingham) by my father and I, along with Gary Estes and DwightEvans on 30 June 2000 (along Drowning Creek in Madison County), bearedremarkable resemblance to those found on the John Park Farm, both in size andtype of stone used. Additionally, theten graves on John and Polly’s Farm is the only family cemeterythere (on present day, Mr. Burn’s tract adjacent to Mr. J. Bingham’sland). This is not surprising as theJohn Park Family owned and lived on this farm for nearly 45 years at the timeof Polly’s passing, believed to be in 1851! One exception are the two graves, husband and wife—Abner W. Quinn(1793-1876) and Nancy (1803-1874), which lie on the side of the hill andbelow the 10 graves (where I now believe John, Polly and their slaves wereburied).
Ironically, myrecords reveal that Abner W. Quinn was Deputy Sheriff of Estill County in 1824,preceding John Park as Sheriff of Estill County the following year in1825! This would seem to indicate thestrong possibility of a professional and personal relationship between JohnPark and Abner Quinn, which could have led to the sale & acquisition of this farm by the Quinns following Johnand Polly’s passing. I believe that Abner and Nancy Quinn may have been thelast to own the portion of the Park Farm where John and Polly’s homestead,barn, and lofty family burial site were. Though there is no proof thatthese 10 graves are those of John, Polly and their slave family, strongcircumstantial evidence exists as outlined above, to support my belief that itis. Having said this, I remain open and receptive to any otherinformation as to the location of the final resting place of my beloved 4thGreat Grandparents, particularly where detailed, documented evidence exists. I would also like to point out that John andPolly’s children moved away from the farm and are buried in Lexington Cemetery(Matilda), Red Hill Cemetery near Panola, KY (Charity); Richmond Cemetery (JohnPark, Jr.); John Richardson, Sr. Cemetery (Barbara), Irvine (Elihu);Wagers-Campbell Cemetery (Jonah) etc. Their graves are marked and none of theseareas mentioned contain the remains of their parents, John Park and PollyPeeler.
Based on the information above, I would like to contactany descendants of John Park and Mary Peeler, including those related to theirdaughter, Matilda Park, who moved to Lexington, KY with her husband, William J.Clark in 1861, after her mother’s death (Polly Peeler-Park) in 1855/6. William Clark died in Lexington on Dec 14,1868 (8 years after the 1860 Census showed them residing in Estill Co., KY withoutPolly). It appears that William andMatilda’s daughter (Polly’s Granddaughter), Mary Jane Clark, born January 19,1844 in Estill Co., Kentucky; died July 05, 1921, was one of the last survivingmember of this family, though Martha Belle Clark was their youngest child. If you, or anyone you know, is related tothis line or has any information, including documents, stories, familypictures, bibles, and clues as to where John Park and Polly Peeler are buried,please contact me using the above address information. I would also like to mention that Iam in possession of William J. Clark’s last will and testament as obtained inthe Fayette County Courthouse in KY on 27 March 2002.
