Thomas Branson Parks
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1778, USA
Death: May 15, 1852
Parks Crossroads
Randolph County
North Carolina, USA

Thomas B Parks was born in Guilford Co., North Carolina in 1778. I believe that his middle name could be Branson because that name was used repeatedly throughout several more generations.
Thomas was the son of Samuel Parks and Mary 'Polly' Vaughn of Orange Co., North Carolina.
Thomas married Anna Cheek in 1795 and they made their home in Randolph Co., North Carolina. The Parks Homestead was located near Ramseur and Siler City in Randolph County. The area later became known as Parks Crossroads because of all the Parks families and the intersection of 5 roads. It once had a post office called Cape, NC. Today, the Post Office is gone and the area is still called Parks Crossroads.
Thomas and Anna had 8 children:
John, Milly, Fields, Joab, Ambus, Henry, George Washington and Lydia.
Thomas, Anna, Lydia and Ambus are all buried at the Parks-Stout Cemetery on the old Parks Homestead. The cemetery was destroyed by a negligent landowner who had no respect for these graves. He used it as a dumping ground and pasture for his cattle. When I visited in 1996 many of the stones were broken and had been trampled by the cattle.
