William LV Parker of Covington, Copiah, Washington, Newton and Jasper MS
Posted by: kelly parks (ID *****1986) Date: December 18, 2008 at 15:34:31
  of 26465

I found William LV Parker in the 1850 census.... index as Barker.
I believe him to be a sibling of my Sintha Parker Graham



1. William L.V.1 Parker was born in 1796 at TN.



Copiah County
Lot 3 - 79 acres William L. V. Parker* :8-18-34 Land patent says of Copiah County
Lot 4 - 79 acres Jesse E. Miers *:8-18-34 Land patent says of Copiah County between 1827 and 1834 at Washington, MS. He was land patent Twp 2 Range 1W Section 14
W1/2 of the NE 1/4* Patent to* Jesse E Miers
E 1/2 of the NE 1/4* Patent to* Wm L. V. Parker
The next transaction for this land was on June 10, 1835. The whole NE 1/4 is being sold by Joel W Parker and Jonathan H. Parker to Lewis Kennedy. There is NO deed from Jesse Miers or WLV Parker* to Joel &Jonathan. This has to be when Joel and Jonathan are leaving Copiah County and heading to Newton County between 1829 and 1835 at Copiah, MS.

As of 1830, William L.V. Parker (or the family of) lived at ?Covington or Copiah, MS. They appeared on the census (Its possible that neither of these are William LV Parker. There are only a few record that record William L. V. Parker, only the 1850 census records the "LV". If Jesse S. Parker was his son he should have at least one male.... Census are not prefect. Could the 2 females have been two male children instead? Covington County tax list do prove that William LV Parker was there between 1828 and 1831. Tax list also show another William Parker. Then again William L.V. Parker had land in Copiah at this time too. There were also other William Parkers there.

Covington County11 William Parker 000001(30-40)000000-200010000. and Copiah county, 16 9 Parker, William 0000010000000-2010100000000.

He was listed on tax list. for Covington He is hard to identify unless records refer to him as William L.V. Parker. Even in search on modern list sometimes he is only list as William L. Parker, this was the case for land patent records, while the deed says William L. V. Parker. Of all those William Parker in 1840 census only the two can fit this family. One in Wayne 3100001(40-50)-0110101 and one in Copaih 0100001(40-50)-33101

POSTED on line....
Jemima Nelson was born on 24 Jan 1829 at MS. She died on 12 Dec 1908 at Lawrence, Newton, MS, at age 79 (is buried at Pine Ridge Cemetery). She is needs more research. This is posted by "unknown" on line at family tree. The Parkers and Nelson Families were early settlers in Mississippi. The earlist records found so far of Jesse Parker and his wife Jemima Nelson, with the exception of a marrage index for the Nelsons, were the 1850 census in Jasper County, Mississippi. The census indicated they were both born in Mississippi,, Jesse, about 1923 and Jamima about 1830. A later census, 1880 in Newton County indicated that Jesse parker's parents were born in Tennessee and Jemima Nelson's parents were born in Gerogia. James Nelson Married Christina Spivey july 2, 1815 in Laurens Co. Georgia.
There were few roads and few trails into Mississippi in 1800. The Natchez Trace to Knoxville, Tennessee was open at this time as well as roads from Knoxville to Virginia. During the war of 1812, the army built the General Jackson's Military Road from the Natchez Trace at Tupelo, MS to New Orleans to ensure that the troops would be able to get supplies if the route by sea was cut off. Currently 1-59 and US 45 follows the path of the General Jackson' Military Road most of the way. I-59 south of Mefidian and US 45 north of Meridian.
So it can be speculated that the Parkers came from Virginia in the 1700's and then down to Mississippi in early 1800's. by a cousin named Bill in Kennewick, WA (19 March 19880 shortly before his death).

1. Dr. Parker's initials stand for Jesse Sanders.
2. Oral history indicates that Dr. parker and his two brothers (Nathaniel and name unknown) journeyed from either North or South Carolina to Alabama where they stayed a while before coming to MS.
