The Parker Family

Salisbury District, Rowan County, North Carolina

The following is taken from another researcher, at this site. The content of that web site explores the Pettypool family but also reflects much information about the Parker family. The Salisbury District, Rowan County, North Carolina that Edward Parker and family resided later became Davie County, NC.

Stephen Pettypool's estate administration was recorded in Rowan County, North Carolina in 1796 by Susannah Parker. The only pre-1800 Rowan County, North Carolina land record using the name Pettypool was a 1778 land entry (15).

1778 August 5. John Van Etton, 530 acres on waters of Bear Creek, being the improvement called William Grant's old place, adjoining John Bryant, PettiPool, and George Smith and Daniel Adams' line for compliment.

Bear Creek flows into the South Yadkin River in present Davie County, North Carolina. William Grant was the brother-in-law or uncle of Daniel Boone. Two related Pettypool estates were probated in Salisbury District, Rowan County, North Carolina in 1795 and 1796, one of which was Stephen's (16).

1795 August 5. Letters of Administration on the estate of William Pettypool, dec'd granted to Susanna Parker, who qualified & gave bond with William Petman, John Weand, securities in the sum of 300.

1796 May 4. Letters of Administration on the estate of Stephen Pettypool issued to Susanna Parker who qualified & gave bond with Hugh Morgan, security in the sum of 1000.

The identity of Susannah Parker is unknown, however, she was alive in 1802 & 1803 when Stephen Pettypool's estate settlement was appealed in Salibury Superior Court. The estate properties located in Salisbury District and in the possession of William Cole, Esq., were seven slaves, Benjamin, Dinah, Sauney, Joe, Dolly, Jud[e], and Sam (17).

1802 March 19. Susannah Parker, Admx of Stephen Pettypoole vs. William Cole. On a rule to show cause why a new trial shall not be granted. On solemn argument the Court adjudges that a new trial be granted on payment of all the costs.

1803 September 19. Susannah Parker, Administratrix of Stephen Pettypoole vs. William Cole. Detinue No. 2nd.

In 1785 William Cole, Justice of the County Court, had been appointed the guardian of the orphans of a George Parke and his wife, Agnes Nichols (Rowan County marriage bond dated 5 February 1762, Jacob Nichols and Henry Lively, bondsmen.) (18). It is not known if there is any relationship between Agnes Nichols and William Nichols, son-in-law of Stephen and Sarah Pettypool.

1785 May 5 Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, William Cole, Esq apptd guardian of John Park, Mary Park [married 1787 Robert McKee], Agness Park, Joshua Park, Huldy Park, & Jacob Nichols Park, orphans of George Park dec'd & gave 400 bond with James McCay [McKee] security.

Susannah Parker apparently married immediately after 1803, since the 1804 powers-of-attorney in Salem County, South Carolina noted that "Mrs. Parker, widow tho now married to another name". A Susannah Parker, daughter of Edward Parker, and Thomas Hughs recorded a marriage bond on 11 November 1804 in Rowan County, North Carolina, with a Samuel Hughs as the bondsman. Edward Parker, in his Last Will and Testament dated 3 May 1819, named Thomas Hughes, husband of my daughter Susanna[h]. Edward Parker lived on Bear Creek in Davie County in 1815 (19):
