DD Andrew Parks (1770-1836) m. Harriett Washington. Geographic area: Baltimore, Fredericksburg,
West Virginia. Seven children known: Anne Eliza, Lawrence Augustine, Bushrod, Laura Angela, Andrew,
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.]

DNA evidence seems to point to a relationship to the following Lineage Keys: A (Arthur), JP,
and XW. There is a fair amount of material on this line due to one constant researcher.

KK James Parks (01KK1) of NY (1771, Sussex Co, Eng-1842, Saratoga Co, NY) son of a John Parks. (Represented) V47#1 Some of his children and a brother (David, 01KK5) proceeded him to America aboard the Robert Edward which landed in New York from London on 2 November 1827. This James and wife Mary
came later together with most of the other children except for Sarah. That passage is still being researched.
James (01KK1) married in 1793 to Mary Henbrey, and had a total of 14 children all born in Sussex,
England. This is an Immigrant Line.Source Materials: Descendant’s Papers and F. S. Parks’, Genealogy of the Parke Families in
(1906) Pages. 274-276. [Contains several errors and is very thin]. Additional research done
by the Lineage Leader PS#1407, Frederick Saar, and cohorts, has enlarged the information known by us. The 1827 immigrant group aboard the Robert Edward:

  • Martha, 02KK2, (1795, Eng Ð ?, probably NY), married Stephen Furner, in 1819, Ewhurst, England,
    often mis-interpreted as Turner, had 6 children.
  • John, (02KK7), (1806, Eng-1864, NY) married Hester Millham c. 1827, Ewhurst, England, had 5
  • Josiah, (02KK8), (1808, Eng-1867, NY) married first Caroline Westfall 1828, NY, Had 5
    children, married secondly Mrs. Louisa E. (unknown) House, after 1846, had another 5 children.

    9 children.
  • Philip, (02KK9a), (1813, Eng-?,?). Little is know. Previously it had been reported that he “died young”
    which has since been disproved. In letters sent back to England he was reported to have been
    apprenticed to a tin smith.
  • Joseph, (02KK13), (1810, Eng-1865, MI) married Nancy Ann Coon, 1832, NY, had 9 children.Others coming later:
    • Mary, 02KK1, (1794, Eng-1839,?) little else is known.
    • Merriam, (02KK3), (1798, Eng-1869, NY) married Thomas Avann, 1818, Ewhurst, Eng, had 4 children.
    • Ann (Mercy) (02KK4), (1800, Eng-1848, NY) married Joseph S. Soden, 1834, NY. Had 5 children.
    • Daniel, (02KK10), (1814, Eng-1895, NY) married three times (1) Matilda, 5 children, (2) Jane Ann, 2
      children, (3) Orpha Ann Kenyon, 5 children.
    • Stephen, (02KK11), (1817, Eng-1905, NY) married Mary Emile Hoffman 1841, had 9 children.
    • Rhoda, (02KK12), (1820, Eng.-1852, NY) married George Clark, circa 1843, NY, had 2 children.

    Remaining children: Sarah, 02KK5, (1802, Eng-bef. 1872, ?) married Charles Parks (relationship to
    this line unknown at this time), 1821, Ewhurst, Eng. May have stayed in England, but a son, Benjamin
    is supposed to have come to America and is buried at Whitesboro, NY.

    Information concerning James’ brother David: David, (01KK5), (c1778, Eng-?, ?), arrived with wife Rebecca and perhaps 4 children aboard the Robert Edward, 2 November 1827. Little more is known about him, or his children. Needs research.

Monthly Town Hall Meeting – Saturday, 12 November, 2022 at 3pm Eastern

Please join us this Saturday, November 12th, at 3pm Eastern Time for another Parke Society Town Hall meeting online via Zoom. Open to all Parke Society members and interested non-members alike.

Our Historian, Michael Tad Parks+, will talk about how we review and work with member’s Lineage Applications, and in particular, sort out when things just don’t seem to add up. He will share a case when things didn’t make sense, and how he discovered the true line of descent.

DNA Project Administrator, Ken Parks, will also talk about the value of the Parke Society’s large database to the DNA project and its vital role in assigning participants to the correct lineage and how the database is extremely useful when looking at participants’ autosomal (Family Finder) Park/e/s matches.

To join the meeting, contact Parke Society President Susan Van Allen at for the join authorization credentials. If you have attended a town hall meeting in the past, the same join credentials will work for this meeting. And when you join the zoom meeting, don’t forget to add your Parke Society member number to your name on the screen!
