Jonathan Parker-Charity Benton- Ann Copeland FG7 Question.
Posted by: wayne parker (ID *****8616) Date: February 12, 2012 at 10:03:57
  of 26458

It has been brought to my attention that there is a claim out there on the net that the Jonathan Parker that married Charity Benton is not the same Jonathan Parker that married Ann Copeland. If anyone has any information about this claim please forward the proof to me. The claim is that the Jonathan Parker that married Ann Copeland is the son of Peter Parker, who is the son of Richard Parker III I say that Jonathan and Peter are brothers and are the sons of Richard III.
I have updated my file. Hope this one will help explain my reasoning behind my claim that Jonathan Parker was married twice. First to Charity Benton and then to Ann Copeland.
I am not 100% sure that I have the children in the right order or connected to right mother. After researching 21 years about the only thing I am 100% sure about is that I am me. :)
Jonathan Parker,Revolution War as a patriot of NC did not serve he only furnished supplies,he had a son Cader that did serve.
Give me some prove and let me look at it as you may be right and I am wrong but till I see something that can prove me 99% wrong I will claim that that Jonathan was married twice. Yes I know that Peter had a son named Jonathan but as of today I have no information on him, I will be glad to look at any information anybody has to offer to back up this claim. I am looking for the truth no matter where it takes me, either way I am still connected to Richard Parker III. It won't be the first time that I had to change my file, and my thinking, nor will it be the last of that I am 100% sure. All I ask of you is to study my file that updated today with an open mind as I will to the same when I read what you send me. Note: Just check out the names Badgett/Badget and the other names that are common to both of his families.
He sold his land in Chowan Co., NC then bought land in Granville Co., NC right after then.
Thanks

Descendants of Jonathan Parker


Generation No. 1

1. JONATHAN5 PARKER (RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1713 in Nansemond, Co.Vir., and died 1788 in Granville, Co. NC. He married (1) CHARITY BENTON, daughter of JOHN BENTON. She was born in Chowan Co., N.C.. He married (2) ANN COPELAND. She died Unknown in Granville, Co. NC.

Notes for JONATHAN PARKER:
Served in the Revolution as a patriot of NC (DAR National Number 577733).
From page 29 of Following The Land by Raymond Parker Fouts. On 20 October 1743, Jonathan Parker proved in court that his family consisted of seven white persons,including himself. Charity his wife, William, Rachel,Jess, Elizabeth and Persilia. She then said that Charity is the daugher of John Benton and I agree because Priscilla Parker Badgett named one of her sons Benton Badgett.
On page 15and page 29 of Following the land, Mrs. Fouts also states that Jonathan Parker is the son of Richard Parker III.
I agree with Mrs. Fouts because Jonathan is also listed in Richard III will as a son.
She also said that Jonathan apparently died after Hertford Co., was formed in 1759,and before Gates was formed in 1779.
I will prove that he moved to Granville Co., N.C. instead by using land deeds and then by his will.
I will list only a few of his land deeds.
