Thanks for your efforts. I made a mistake... yes this is the grandson of the same Col. Josiah Parker, his name was William Cowper, not Parker, and it is assumed that he died young as a result of this shooting. I have done quite alot of research on this family, my family, but will try local newspapers of that period. Do you know of a Norfolk or Portsmouth newspaper that existed at that time? Thanks again.
