Betty, in a book I have entitled Marriage and Death Notices from Extant Asheville, N. C. Newspapers 1840-1870, on page 109 under Death Notices it states: PARKER, SHOT AND KILLED BY A MAN NAMED HOOPER, n.d., in Jackson County (A. N., Feb. 12, 1857). No first name given for Parker. A N. is for Asheville News: Extant and reasonably complete from January 9, 1851, through November 18, 1869. Hope this helps.
