  • Notes 
    • "Rachel Butler, born about 1800 and died between 1842 and 1850 in Sampson County, married John Parker, born about 1790, son of William Parker (son of John Parker and Rachael Sessoms) and Nancy Owen (daughter of John Owen and Anna Hayes). They had at least nine children. William and the children are listed in the 1850 Census of Sampson County." from The Heritage of Sampson County, North Carolina. Oscar M. Bizell, Ed. The Sampson Co. Historical Society, Newton Grove, North Carolina, 1983, p. 332.

      "William Parker (1759-1829) was a pioneer of Methodism and a member of the first Society formed at Parkers' Meeting House (Andrews Chapel) long before any house of worship was erected in the neighborhood." from The Heritage of Sampson County, North Carolina. Oscar M. Bizell, Ed. The Sampson Co. Historical Society, Newton Grove, North Carolina, 1983, p. 543.

      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.

      [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.
