  • Notes 
    • " As a young man Thomas Parker climbed a tree in his yard in Sampson Co., North Carolina and watcxhed Cornwallis' army march by on its way to Wilmington. He related this to his grandson, Thomas B. Parker, who in turn related it to this writer, William A. Parker. Information on this family comes from the North Carolina Genealogical Library vertical file. William Alderman Parker (b. 13 Mar 1879- d. ?) compiled the information. William Alderman Parker was the son of Thomas Bradley Parker, son of William Right Parker, son of Zachiariah Parker, son of Richard Parker and Elizabeth Sumner. {p. 62}
      [about Andrews Chapel] "On the 2nd of October 1809, a plot of land containing two acres was given by Luke Parker for the sum of 10 shillings, or $1.25, to trustees, viz. Nicholas Parker, William Parker, Thomas Parker, Owen Owens and William Miller, for the purpose of erecting a house of worship for the use of the Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1816, a church was built of logs and called Parkers Meeting House, mainly through the influence of Nicholas Parker." from The Heritage of Sampson County, North Carolina. Oscar M. Bizell, Ed. The Sampson Co. Historical Society, Newton Grove, North Carolina, 1983, p. 81.
