Birth: Feb. 25, 1800

The Parks family moved to Texas from Indiana after the Mexican War. They arrived in 1847 and settled in Dallas County between what is now Lancaster and DeSoto. All of Catherine's sons received head rights. Meredith died the year after they arrived, leaving a widow, Malinda Sharp, and 14 children. His original land grant was kept in the family for 100 years.
