Most references give his name as Lewis Parker. The following sources all say Robert Lewis Parker, and give birthplace as DeKalb County, Georgia:

Stoddard Family & Sheffer Family Tree by jldjerrysue1 on;

According to his daughter Annie's great-granddaughter Karen Damron, his name was just Lewis Parker and he was born in Georgia but not DeKalb County (email, July 13, 2015).

A lot of different families claimed to be related to Bonnie Parker, of course. Some claimed Bonnie Parker was of the same family as Chief Quannah Parker.
On WikiTree, Bonnie's father Charles Parker's parents are listed as James Franklin Parker (1928-1904) and Sarah Jane Jackson (1828-1905); grandparents Emanuel Parker (c1781-1851) & Mary Ann Astin (c1792-1873); great-grandparents Steven Parker (b. bef. 1761) , Robert Astin (c1765-c1840) & Susannah Mapp (c1769-c1825).
