|AA||Ann Parke (1618-1641 Roxbury, MA), daughter of Robert Parke (MA 1630) m. Edward Payson.
No surviving children from this marriage. This is an Immigrant Line.Source Materials: F.S. Parks, The Parke Family in Connecticut, and

Mary, and John Parks, born between 1797 and 1816.Source Materials: Genealogy of the Families of the Presidents, Reginald Buchanan Henry, 1935.[A historical tidbit here: There are several recognized genealogical
numbering systems (of which the Parke Society is one). Reginald Henry created what has come to be
known as the Henry System, which uses a series of digits to describe the place of the descendant in
the family scheme. It can get rather complex as the generations go, and once you move beyond the
9th child you run into the possibility of confusion. If you see in a compiled genealogy
something like: 138523, you are looking at a Henry Number.]Not Represented)
