Although I have been a researcher for years,I have been a full time genealogist for over 5 years. I have researched my Parker family for many years as well as: Payne,Wells,Edgell,Morris,Tippens and numerous other lines. I do family research for family and friends in need.I am a native Texan. I also am a volunteer for TXGenWeb Project with Harrison
I will take photographs ONLY in Longview, Gladewater,Kilgore and Tyler at this time and some surrounding areas.
Done! Actually, Sue Moriz found a Houston Co Newspaper Article stating both Mrs. Parker (Nancy) was caring for her father John Allen "Uncle Johnny" in Dec 1890...which is almost 1891! John Allen was listed as 86 years old, and the oldest man in the county. I have no proof either are buried in Parker. To the contrary, the cemetery was "pinged for graves" and NO one was buried or found under John Allen as well as many other "memrial markers" placed at Parker. I also have a pension application made by N A Parker, widow "disapproved 1899" stating she owned 79 acres and two cows valued at $260 (land) and $15 (cows). Guess they wanted to eat her cows and sell her land! My question is "what happened to the land?" There are hundreds of records of our Allen family at various counties in East Texas. I just have never been there to get them. I had several sent to me. If you haven't you may ask the County Clerk there in Crocket for any sales of land around that time or intestate records. I've never looked. I'd like to know Josephus Parker's parents names and I would like to know what happened to their children. I have children as: Louisa Parker 1848–1899 John Asbury Parker was John Allen Parker 1849–1881 Dorothy Parker 1851– Elizabeth "Lizzie" Parker 1853–1921 Thomas J or TJ Parker 1857–1928 Mary ? Parker 1859– Benjamin Parker 1865–1918 If you don't have the above mentioned records, I am happy to email them to you (firstname.lastname@example.org) And, any assistance is greatly appreciated.

RE: nancy ann allen parker Hi there...Gee I have so many questions about your ancestor! As you can see, I requested to manage Nancy's grave, I did not create it. I'm sure they looked for her on a 1900 census and when they didn't find her - wrote 1899. I could only trace a few of her children..to see if she was living with them...not living with Dorothy Moore...in 1900 - don't know what happen to Mary or your ancestor Benjamin for that matter...I'm happy to change anything for you..anytime. Always always nice to hear from you...love, Diane

Nancy Warren Payne I noticed that someone left a comment on Nancy (Warren) Payne's FindaGrave record that they photographed every headstone in the Grounds Cemetery of Crockett, TX and found no stone as described in Nancy Payne's FindaGrave. I don't know how I came by it and I haven't visited either cemetery to confirm, but through my Ancestry.com account, I show Nancy is buried not in Grounds Cemetery, but in Old Zion Cemetery. I have also gotten a copy of the headstone in question, presumably either from FindaGrave or from Ancestry.com. The photo I have on my Ancestry does not seem to be associated with the Grounds Cemetery listing for Nancy Warren. Perhaps there are 2 listings? One in the Grounds cemetery (in error?) and on in the old Zion Cemetery? I tried looking Nancy's grave up that way, but came up empty handed "this time"(as if there were a prior time--I don't remember specifically). Anyway, I thought it would be helpful for you to know and can attached the photo I have to an e-mail if you'd like.
