Daniel Parker, SC in the American RevolutionDaniel Parker enlisted in the 5th 19 Sept 1776. He served in the 2nd from 1 April 1777 to 18 Jun 1777 as a Pvt. and from 18 Jun 1777 to 27 Dec 1778 as a Cpl. From 28 Dec 1778 to 24 July 1781 he was a Sgt. Moss has another listing for Daniel Parker, b. 1747 in Ninety Six District, died 1808/1809, married Elizabeth ?? in 1773. Served in Lt. Dragoons under Capt. Jacob Barnett, Lt. Col. Henry Hampton and Gen. Sumpter during 1782.Moss 1985 "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution.The 5th SC Regiment was commanded by Col. Isaac Huger from 16 Sept 1776 to 9 Jan 1777 and by Lt Col. Alexander McIntosh from Jan 1777 to 1780.Marion commanded (on paper only) the 1st SC authorized by Congress in Oct of 1780. Marion commanded his own partisons, and never had a "real" regiment.There is a trace of evidence that Daniel Parker of the Pee Dee River region of SC served in General Francis "Swamp Fox" Marion's 5th SC Infantry Regiment during the Revolution.Daniel Parker born about 1750 perhaps in NC, married Susan perhaps in NC abour 1770, and between then and 1796 had these children born nearly all in NC: 1) Susan, 2) Pleasant L. 3) Richard 4) James 5) John 6) Nancy 7) Betsey 8) Alford Alfred 9) William.  One old story says this family lived near Raleigh near the TERRELL family. This Parker family lived for a while somewhere in Tennessee near the Wilson and Stevens families about the 1790's where another old story says Daniel killed a man and took off, leaving wife and kids.  Starting about 1810 most of Daniel's family moved to Clay and Knox Co., Kentucky to be near the older daughter Susan married to John Young and their family there.Daniel Parker lived in South Carolina. It is said that he killed a man in South Carolina with his bare hands and had to flee. We do know that he eventually settled in Kentucky.  It is also said he fathered 12 children, but I have only found explicit references to nine.Daniel Parker was born 11 March 1750 in Hartford, Baltimore, Maryland. He lived in South Carolina until 1800. He supposedly married a Susan Terrell then Edith. In 1796 he was on trial for horse theiving. At his trial Edith testified against him and he was found guilty, but he escaped jail and went to Indiana and raised another family. In the trial transcript he states he is a laborer and has relatives living in the Pee Dee Valley.EDGEFIELD COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA -1790Parker, Margaret 00100Parker, Isaac  12500Jones, James  14500Parker, Benjn.  40500Parker, Susanna  12400West, James  13700Parker, Daniel  11600 I read in court records about the misdeeds of Francis and Daniel Parker in old Pendleton District, SC during the 1790s  Francis Parker was convicted of creating a riot and assault and battery in Pickensville during 1795 but he fled before sentencing to parts unknown.During August 1796 Daniel Parker a laborer who lived on Beaverdam Creek, in 1796 stole a neighbor's horse and sold the animal near his previous home near the Pee Dee River in east SC. He was also convicted partly due to his wife's testimony against him, but broke jail in April 1798 for parts unknown. I think these two are the same men of those names shown living beside each other in the 1790 census of St John's Parish not far from Georgetown in east SC. Daniel Parker had land with William Stiles in Wilkes Co., Georgia. The Wilkes County Pleasant Parker got it as a bounty for his service as a sergeant in the Revolution. In a Wilkes COunty court record in 1792 where a Pleasant Parker and a William Stiles were ejected from the 300 acre parcel of land on Harding Creek.Daniel Parker lived on Beaverdam Creek in what was then Pendleton District SC which is now Anderson County, SC. The court records for 1796 to 1798 stated he was a laborer who came there from Kershaw County, SC. The court record was to show the trials of this same Daniel Parker for horse theft and just before he could be convicted based largely on the testimony of Edith Parker his wife, he broke jail in April 1798 and disappeared into probably Tennessee leaving wife and kids. This is the same Daniel Parker who showed up in Jefferson County, Southeast Indiana about 1816 and lived in the village of Milton there until he died in  1848.  Meanwhile, many of his children between 1806 and 1820 settled in southeast KY in what became Laurel County.

Dennis Glasscock  Edward Parker Son of Daniel
  Name: Edward PARKER Given Name: Edward Surname: Parker Sex: M Birth: Abt. 1796 in North Carolina Note: Charlotte's parents are Edward
and Mary "Polly" YOUNG PARKER. I am in correspondence with four descendant
researchers of this branch of the Parkers, and you and Frederica are the only
ones I know who descend from Charlotte. I descend from one of Mary Young
Parker's older sisters, Bartheny, who married one of the JOHNSON brothers. I
coordinate the combined efforts of over thirty researchers who descend from
these Parkers who originated in the Carolinas and one by one settled in the
Laurel/Clay/Knox/Harlan County part of southeast KY north of the Cumberland
Gap in various years between 1806 and the 1820s.
Your Edward Parker was one of the last to move there between 1822 and
1827. We have recently discovered that Charlotte's dad Edward was evidently
the youngest son of the mysterious Daniel Parker. Edward was born about 1796.
Edward told census takers later that he was born in NC, and I suppose that is
so. However, Edward's dad Daniel and mom Edith (Daniel's second wife of
three) in 1796 settled along Beaverdam Creek in south Pendleton District, SC
(present-day Anderson County, SC). Daniel left Edith and the kids for good in
April 1798 (I can give details) so Edith evidently raised Edward and his
older siblings by herself. The family story goes that she searched the
frontier looking for her wayward husbAND ended up somewhere in TN.
When Edward was a young man he returned about 1816 to that part of SC
and spent time with the John F. and Susan Elizabeth Parker Young family in
Greenville District. This Susan is my ancestor and she apparently was the
mysterious Daniel Parker's first wife. At any rate, Edward met and married
one of John and Susan's younger daughters Mary "Polly" while her parents were
in what became Laurel County KY setting up a new home for the family. I
suppose Mary had been staying with relatives in SC, as her uncle Richard
Young lived nearby. So, Edward and Polly's oldest child Charlotte was born 26
Jun 1817 evidently there in Greenville District, SC. I suppose you know that
Charlotte told census-takers in 1850 and 1870 that she was born in SC and in
1860 told them something else. In 1818 Edward and Polly and little Charlotte
were still living in SC because Edward and Polly's uncle Richard Young
witnessed a land deed that year for Richard's son-in-law, R.S.C. Foster in
Greenville District.
It seems Edward and Polly Parker moved to TN after that, because their
second known child Felix was born in TN in 1820. The only Edward Parker who
appears in the TN 1820 census was in Jackson County, about five counties
south of the Cumberland Gap, so we assume your ancestors lived in Jackson
County, TN for a few short years. Edward and Polly's third child Linney was
born in TN in 1822, but their fourth child Daniel was born in Laurel County,
KY in 1827.

Father: Daniel PARKER b: About 1760 ? in North Carolina or KY.
Mother: Edith UNKNOWN
