Surname: Parker

The Parker surname comes to me via Rosmer P. Kerr. His fifth great-grandfather was:
  • Captain Samuel Parker, born 22 September 1682 in Groton, Massachusetts. Together with his wife Mary Cardee, he had seven children. He died 30 October 1775 in Coventry, Connecticut. Samuel and Mary were my seventh great-grandparents.
  • Samuel Parker, Jr., born 6 March 1705 in Boston. On 24 March 1726 he married Experience Root in Coventry. They were my sixth great-grandparents.
  • Samuel Parker II, born in Coventry. He married Sarah Badcock on 1 March 1753 in Coventry, and with her had 11 children. He died 1 May 1814 in Peru, Massachusetts. Samuel and Sarah were my fifth great-grandparents.
  • Tryphena Parker, born 14 December 1769 in Coventry, the ninth child of Samuel and Sarah. On 22 November 1795 she married Elijah Sedgwick in Peru. They had seven children. She died on 4 January 1842 in Westmoreland, Oneida County, New York. Tryphena and Elijah were my fourth great-grandparents.
