Surnames: Parker Beckerdite
My PARKER line is established from my paternal grandmother, Nellie Lane PARKER (Taylor) (1900-1993) to my 2nd great grandfather, Samuel PARKER. He was born 25 Mar 1833 in TN. In 1860 he was in Alpine, Clark Co., AR. He may have fought with an AR cav regt for the Union. His 1870 residence is Antoine, Pike Co., AR, and then he probably died abt 1878 while moving his family from AR to TX. WHO WAS THIS SAMUEL’s parents??? Indicators point to Samuel Parker (1795-1865) & Sarah Beckerdite (1795-aft. 1880). First, their birth states are the same as indicated for my Samuel’s mother & father. Second, the had a son named Samuel b. 1833. Third, although at different times, they resided in Pike Co. and Montgomery Co., AR and my Samuel resided in Clark Co. and Pike Co., AR. CAN ANYONE HELP ME VERIFY THAT MY SAMUEL IS THE SON OF SAMUEL PARKER & SARAH BECKERDITE?

A.W. Parker

____________________________________________________________________________

A.W. Parker, farmer and sheriff, Murfreesboro, Ark. There are a number of
men prominently identified with the agricultural affairs of this county.
but none among them are more deserving of mention than A.W. Parker, a native
of Mississippi, born in 1844. His father, J.C. Parker, and his mother whose
maiden name was Elizabeth Clark, are both natives of Alabama. The paternal
grandfather, Samuel Parker, was born in North Carolina, and at an early day
moved to Alabama, thence to Mississippi, and in 1854 came to Arkansas,
settling in what is now Pike County. His death occurred in Montgomery, in
1865. This pioneer of several States kept ahead of the tide of emigration,
and became a respected and esteemed in whatever section he made his home.
His father was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. J.C. Parker was reared in
Mississippi, married in 1843, and after his marriage removed to Arkansas in
1854, settling in Pike County (then Clark), where he made a home. He
received his final summons in 1878. The mother is still living, and resides
on the old homestead. A.W. Parker was reared on a farm in the country,
attended private schools, but had limited educational advantages. He
remained at home until nineteen years of age, then enlisted in the United
States army, and served until the close of the war. He then began farming
for himself. In 1867 he was united in marriage to Miss Florinda A. Buchanan,
a native of Tennessee, and to them were born nine children, six now
living: Emily (died at the age of eleven years and six months), Marietta,
Frances, Henry A., George A. (who died at the age of two years and six
months), Jacob, Martha (died in infancy), Charley and Joseph. Shortly before
his married, Mr. Parker purchased a farm in Antoine Township, of 200 acres,
and to this he has since added enough to make 683 acres, in Antoine and
Self Creek Townships, and has 150 acres under cultivation. The balance of
his land is well timbered. Mr. Parker has always been quite active in
politics, and served one term as justice under the appointment of Gov.
Baxter. He was also elected to the position of sheriff of the county in
1888, and he is the present incumbent of that position. He is a member of
the Masonic fraternity, Sulphur Springs Lodge No. 100, at Amity, Clark
County, Ark., and has held nearly all the offices in the lodge. Our subject
and his father both served in the Federal army, in Company F, Fourth
Arkansas Cavalry, and after the war returned to agricultural pursuits. Mr.
Parker is quite active in politics and is independent in principle. He is an
influential citizen, a good officer, and one of the foremost farmers. He has
served fifteen years as school director of his district, and is an earnest
advocate of education.

Surnames: Parker
This seems to fit mostly with my family history. My ggf was Rufus Kay Parker born 1873 or 1876. His father was Rufus Parker born around 1832. I have followed Rufus (of 1832) back to where I think his father is Samuel born around 1800. I follow your info provided on historical information to Rufus (of 1832) but do not see a Rufus Kay (of 1873 or 1876) Could this be due to it being branched out a different direction? Do you have any info on a Rufus Kay (1873 or 1876) in your family line?
