JOE PARKER is the son of Fanny Davis Parker and Sie Parker. He is a direct descendant of the Parker Indians. QUANAH PARKER is the first born son of Cynthia Parker who was kidnapped by the Comanche Indians. At the age of 18, she married the Chief, Peta Nocono and they had three (3) children; Quanah, Paleflower and Pecos. She gave her children her last name - that of PARKER. Quanah became known as the last Comanche Warrior Indian Chief and was buried with full honors and ceremonial attire at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Joe Parker had one son by his first wife, who was called Mom Pick, Sie Parker. Later he met and lived with Mary Jane Blackwell, and to that union was born three (3) children: George Parker, Fannie Mae Parker and Sylvester Parker.

Joe was living on the St. Delphine Plantation with his family and was unable to report to work one day because he was ill. The owners of the plantation came, {August Leverte} took him out and beat him severely. He was beaten so bad until he could hardly see the chair to sit and had to be guided to it by his wife, Mary Jane. Unable to acquire medical treatment, he became ill and had to be taken to the hospital. It was diagnosed that he had tumors in his head because of the severe beating. He died in the Eaast Louisiana State Hospital. His wife and children cherish his memories, which have now been handed down to his grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Joe had three (3) brothers and one (1) sister. John (Kate Tatney} Parker, Reverend Coleman (Malvina) Parker (who was the Pastor of the Pilgrim Rest & St. Mark Baptist Church); Gertrude Parker (who married Arthur J. Gillis), George Parker (died at birth).

We shall find each and every connection until we reach back to QUANAH. Joe's father had one brother, Robert Parker and sisters, Tenela & Marvella Parker.
