I'm striking out on e-mail tonight. Here's some additional info. that might be helpfful.

In truth, I only copied a message from the Jefferson C., NY section of Rootsweb, which cited
P-R (hence the quotations)

James Parker and his family came to Jefferson County in 1802. They came upon a sled drawn by
oxen from Vermont. With a son Alexander, James became
interested in the manufacture of the solid millstones, then the only stones used
in grinding grain, in use throughout the whole north country.

His children were:
Alexander (married Betsey Bartholomew in 1808)

If you are interested in Betsey Bartholomew, I had this note from a researcher:

(e-mail from Paul Sweet, April 16, 2002)" On my mother's side, I am
a descendent of Betsey's (Bartholmew's) brother Ebenezer who moved from Brownville to
Michigan in the 1830s. Ebenezer eventually settled in Crockery (Nunica),
Ottawa, MI, where he died ca. 1861. I have been to the cemetery to see
his gravestone along with a yard full of his descendents. A few months
ago I also was given a wonderful biography of Oliver Bartholomew written
shortly after his death. It is about six pages long and is full of
information about the Bartholomews. Let me know if you would like a
