Picture of Nathan Parkes tombstone with shaving cream to bring out the letters (later washed off). Wife's stone was next to his (Magaret "Peggy" White). Tombstone read: "In Memory of Nathan Parkes, Born 24 Feb 1778, Died 29 Mar 1814". Buried at: Hwy 89/Wagersville Rd., Old Jonah Wagers Farm. Nathan II's father, Charles Parke's (m. Catherine Pew)Great Uncle is JohnParke I, my 7th Great Grandfather. Nathan II descends from John's brother, Roger Parke, Jr. 1684-1755.Nathan II further descends from Roger Jr.'s son, Nathan I).This line, as did mine, came from Hunterdon County, NJ via Frederick Co., VA (now Hampshire Co., WV) through Rowan County, NC.Nathan (II), who is buried on Jonah Wager's Farm, was the son of Charles Park (1747- 1820) and Catherine Pew (1745- 1831).The mother of Jonah Wagers' who owned the farm was Eliza Park, the sister to my 2d Great Grandfather, John McMonigle Park. Nathan Parkes' line is generally associated with my ancestral cousins in Western Madison Co., KY (near Red House, KY). On the other hand, most of my direct-line ancestors lived in Eastern Madison Co. near Drowning Creek and Estill County along Station Camp Creek close to present-day Wagersville, KY. Thus, it was unusual to find Nathan II in the Eastern part of Madison County vice the West.I was thrilled though, with this find which provides yet another link to my NJ ancestors, beginning with my 8th Great Grandparents, Dr. Roger Park, Sr. and wife, Ann Pattison who arrived in NJ in 1682. Special thanks goes to my cousin, Gary Estes of Irvine, KY for finding this grave and taking this and other photographs of it.
