Research indicates that there was no company from Illinois captained by an officer surnamed "Christian."

A soldier named "Hiram," not Henry, Parker did serve in the Black Hawk War.

The suggestion here is that probbaly Henry Parker did not serve in an Illinois volunteer company during the Black Hawk War.
