Bishop Ann Ambers, was born on Cinclare Plantation, West Baton Rouge Parish. I went to live in Plaquemine, at the age of 5, was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia at 9. No one thought I would be here at 60, preaching and teaching an uncompromising Gospel and traveling the nation to those that are lost. Personal motto is: "For Others."
My favorite scriptures are: Psalms 34, John 14; favorite songs are: "Walk Around Heaven All Day, I'll Go, I'll Fly Away, I Will Bless The Lord, Say Yes, and He Keeps On Blessing Me."
A few years ago, I was told that my maternal grandfather, JOE PARKER, is a direct descendant of the PARKER INDIANS. I had no idea what that meant,but have learned the story. Cynthia Ann Parker and her brother, John, was captured from Fort Parker in Texas by the Commanches. At the age of 18, she married the Chief, Peta Nocona and named her first son, QUANAH PARKER. I am searching for the decendants. Chief Quanah Parker is buried at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. I hope to get there one day.
As I continue my quest on this specific journey the Lord saw fit to bless me with; I am thankful to be getting well. I hope to be active once again in assisting others. Within the next few months, I hope to visit St. Joseph Cemetery, Pilgrim Rest Cemetery and Grace Memorial. Blessings to everyone who stops by. God loves you.
Thank you SO MUCH for this grave post! My mother always spoke very fondly of her 'Grandpa London'. And of course, the Lewis family adored him!!!!
London Parker was my maternal grandfather's stepfather. He married my great-grandmother, Victoria Woods Lewis, aka Gold in the late 1930s. After her untimely death, he later married Grandma Irene, whom I recall quite well.
As some cousins and I embark on producing a family tree, I was wondering if you could help us with any information.

Elmore Connection Hello, I am doing family research and discovered that you made an entry for a Wilbur Elmore of Franklin, LA who may be possibly related to the Elmores in Patterson, LA. Please advise.
You're very welcome I would love to hear the story of your daughter; it was my pleasure to honor her with that small token. She was a beautiful, young woman and I can only imagine the loss you must have felt and still feel. I only wish I could do more. We lost my brother-in-law in 2006 to a car accident, and I know how painful it can be to lose a loved one so suddenly and violently.
I will keep my eyes open for Mr. Parker and let you know. Please feel free to email me anytime! Love and many blessings!
Welcome & Thank you Welcome to Find A Grave and thank you so much for sending the correction for Mr. Roscoe. It's always exciting to see more local folk getting involved here. I am from Maringouin and my father used to work for the City of Plaquemine years ago. It's nice to see another Ibervillian around. If there is ever anything that I can do to help you or if you ever find any more of my entries that need correcting, please don't hesitate to contact me. Bright blessings!
