The Parker family tree (done by B. F. Bulard) found in the vertical file in the North Carolina Gen. Library lists only four children for John Parker and Rachael "Sessums." Additional info. on the children comes from a chart by William Alderman Parker. I am using his order and his dates for their births. "John Parker was born in Edgecombe Co., North Carolina, as was his wife, and after they were married they moved to that part of Duplin Co. which later became Sampson, or near Owensville, which name was later changed to Roseboro." - William Alderman Parker "John Parker moved from Edgecombe Co. to Sampson Co. In visiting the relatives back in Edgecombe he had to cross two rivers (Neuse and Tar) which placed them north of the Tar River. He and his wife rode horse-back on such trips. One John Parker of Edgecombe Co., bought 80 acres on Dividing Creek in Duplin Co. July 12, 1758, from Jeremiah Bullard, of Duplin Co." Information on this family comes from the North Carolina Genealogical Library vertical file. William Alderman Parker (b. 13 Mar 1879- d. ?) compiled the information. (p. 61)

I have a copy of John Parker's will dated 23 Apr 1800. He gives his wife Rachel 1100 acres of land including the plantation he now lives on between the Little Coharie and South Rivers. He names his sons Josiah Parker, John Parker, William Parker, Nicholas , and______ Parker and his daughters _______ Clark and Elizabeth Parker. Others are also named but I can't read the will very well.

"John Parker, who came from the Tarr River area, was founder of historical Andrews Chapel United Methodist Church (formerly Parkers Meeting House) of Roseboro." from The Heritage of Sampson County, North Carolina. Oscar M. Bizell, ed. The Sampson Co. Historical Society, Newton Grove, North Carolina, 1983, p. 543.
The stained glass window over the door of Andrews Chapel reads: Andrews Chapel Meth. Church founded by John Parker 1785 Present Location 1842 "John Parker's home was a regular preaching place for as far back as 1785. He raised a large family, all of whom, with one exception, were worthy and pious persons." from The Heritage of Sampson County, North Carolina. Oscar M. Bizell, Ed. The Sampson Co. Historical Society, Newton Grove, North Carolina, 1983, p. 81.

[William Alderman Parker lists John Parker (born ca. 1720) as one of the children of Isaac Parker (along with Jonathan Parker). The birthdates of the other, apparently older children since they were listed before John, Jonathan (1735) and James (1736), do not seem to support this idea. John Parker's first child Luke was born in 1739. A letter from Robert Wallace Parker to William Alderman Parker found in the Vertical file in the North Carolina Gen. Library mentions Isaac Parker of Northampton Co., North Carolina, and his children: Joseph, Samuel, Jonathan, Sarah, Jonas, Charity, Chestnut, Mary, Nancy, and James. Susannah and John, whom William Alderman Parker names as children in the same family are not named. Joseph and Chestnut are not listed in W. A. Parker's listing. Until I am able to positively identify a direct link between Isaac and John Parker, I am going to assume that they are not directly related. John Parker had roots in Edgecombe Co. and Isaac Parker and his family seem to have been from Northampton Co. SCS]

from Susan Parker Caison Sharp

John Parker, who was born about 1725 in North Carolina, moved from Edgecombe County to Duplin County about 1757. He settled along the west side of Little Coharie Creek in the part of Duplin that became Sampson County in 1784. John Parker became a prominent landowner and planter is considered the first Methodist in Sampson County. Services were held in his house as early as 1785. In 1788, Bishop Francis Asbury of the Methodist Church preached at the Parker home on his trip through North Carolina. A "skeleton pulpit" was built for the occasion and was kept by family members for many years. John's son, Francis, became a Methodist minister and was reportedly ordained by Bishop Asbury. William, Thomas, Sessums and Nicholas Parker, all sons of John, were "worthy and pious men" who helped establish Methodism in Sampson County.

After John's death about 1805, the old home place where services had been held for twenty years, passed to his son Luke Parker, who was considered irreligious. Luke, however, deeded two acres of land for ten shillings on October 2, 1809, for the purpose of erecting a house of worship for the Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1816, a log church was built on the property at the urging of Nicholas Parker and was known as Parker's Meeting House. In 1842, the church moved to its present location, a short distance from the original site and is known today as Andrews Chapel Methodist Church.

It is interesting to note that although John Parker was a devout Methodist, he owned a still to produce alcoholic spirits. In his will, he included a specific bequest of the "still" to his son, Luke Parker. The inventory of his estate, taken in 1806, included "1 Three gallon jug the same full of brandy" and "1 case of 14 half Gallon Bottles 7 of them full of brandy." Stills were valuable property owned by prosperous persons in early America and were commonly passed on by the owners to their wives or children in their wills.

[I am not sure that this is the right John Parker. The children listed as children of John Parker and Rachel Butler are the children listed in a will dated Oct. 7, 1856 and probated in Aug 1859. The wife is not named, but Rachel was apparently dead by this time. I checked this info in the 1850 census. Rachel (wife of John) was apparently dead by 1850. The approximate birth dates given in this record are from the 1850 census.]

75 'Everyone just loved that lady'

Sema Wilkes, nationally renowned for her preparation and family style-service of hearty, Southern home cooking, died after a short illness Thursday morning. She was 95.

Family members opened the doors to Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room at 107 W. Jones St. on Thursday. The staff of 20 served breakfast and supper to more than 200 visitors, just as their boss had for more than 55 years.

But without the grandmotherly figure presiding over her guests, business was anything but usual.

"It was hard work that got her where she was and where she got to," said Ronnie Thompson, who manages the restaurant and is married to Wilkes' granddaughter, Marcia. "If everybody had done as much in their lifetime as much as she did with hers, it certainly would've been a better place to live."

Born in Aimwell in Toombs County, Wilkes started her career in 1943, when she agreed to help out in the kitchen of the boarding house where her late husband, Lois H. Wilkes, was staying.

The part-time job led to a thriving business after the couple bought and restored the home in 1965 as part of a Savannah Historic Foundation project. Her restaurant's reputation, built mostly on word-of-mouth from her customers, made Mrs. Wilkes' a fixture in historic downtown and an ambassador for the city and state, family and acquaintances said.

"She is part of the heritage of Savannah," said Esther Shaver, who owns E. Shaver Booksellers on Bull Street.

"People would come into the bookstore and say, 'I met Mrs. Wilkes,' " Shaver said. "When you know that someone has just been a part of downtown and a fixture downtown, it's the end of an era. Everyone just loved that lady."

Wilkes traveled to other countries to promote tourism in the South and Savannah through her cooking.

Among the streams of visitors who waited for her savory helpings of fried chicken, barbecued pork, corn bread and turnip greens, were famous men and women like Robert Duval, Kate Smith and Gregory Peck.

Thousands of lesser-known customers trekked to Mrs. Wilkes', where she gave blessings before they spooned heaping portions from huge bowls on the tables.

At one point, the eatery's practice of re-serving uneaten portions led to health department investigations. But with one of the oldest restaurant licenses in the county, some argued that Wilkes' establishment was exempt from later regulations against family-style service. In any case, the business continued after a compromise that required food to be reheated before being served again.

By far, most attention lavished on the restaurant was positive.

Wilkes and her restaurant often have been profiled in newspaper and magazine stories. She also published several cookbooks, autographing thousands of them herself.

Paula Deen of The Lady & Sons, whose downtown eatery rivals Mrs. Wilkes' with its similar Southern food dishes, said the elder woman's business sense was heroic and set her apart.

"She and my grandmother were about the same age, both in the restaurant business when it wasn't real popular for women to be out in the business world," Deen said. "They were pioneers for women in the restaurant business."

Wade Layton, who lived next door to Wilkes, watched her business blossom after he began working with her through his Coastal Paper-Sail Chemical Co. business in 1946.

"It is amazing. She never even thought about quitting," said Layton, who supplied Mrs. Wilkes' with paper towels and napkins. "Most everybody else looks forward to the day when they can retire. That was the last thing in her mind was retiring."

The tradition she began continued Thursday. Visitors lined up as usual for breakfast and lunch at the home.

Thompson didn't tell anyone other than staff about the matriarch's passing at the restaurant.

But word did filter out.

City Council members, who have eaten pre-meeting lunches catered by Mrs. Wilkes' for the past five years, spoke of her legacy over their fried chicken and beef stew helpings.

"Hopefully, her legend continues through her restaurant and family," said Mayor Floyd Adams Jr. "She has brought international attention to the community and we thank her for that."

The restaurant will be closed today and Monday. Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Monday Wesley Monumental United Methodist Church on Calhoun Square.

Her dining room, which will continue to be operated by her family, will reopen next week. Their routine is well-established.

"We don't need any recipes anymore," Wilkes once said in a 1984 interview. "We just know what it takes to make food taste good."

Still, Mrs. Wilkes' won't be the same without her, Thompson said.

"Anybody who is real successful like that, they have to be a unique person," he said. "She just cared a lot about other people than herself. She just always did whatever it took to make people happy."

BAKER COUNTY - A Tuesday afternoon crash on Interstate 10 in Baker County left one Lake City man dead and another hospitalized with critical injuries. Three other men in the vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Tommy Joe Robinson, 43, Lake City, was killed in the wreck.

Luis Danilo Quiros, 45, Lake City was transported to Shands Jacksonville with critical injuries.

The driver of the vehicle, Marc L. Boucher, 37, of Lake City, suffered minor injuries, as did passengers Jasper Eugene Futch, 55, Live Oak and Benjamin Leon Markham, 45, Lulu.

The crash occurred at 2:20 p.m., about a mile west of U.S. 90.

According to Florida Highway Patrol reports, Boucher was westbound in a 1995 Ford van in the inside lane when, for unknown reasons, the vehicle left the roadway, partially entering the grass median.

Boucher steered to the right to reenter the roadway, causing him to lose control of the vehicle, say reports.

The van then veered left and began to spin. The vehicle traveled sideways in the grass median and overturned several times, ejecting Robinson and Quiros, neither of whom was wearing a seatbelt.

Boucher, Futch and Markham suffered minor injuroes and were taken to a Baker County hospital for treatment. Bucher and Futch were wearing seatbelts. Markham was not, according to FHP.

No charges have been filed, according to reports.

94 17 year old Scott Milton, of St. Augustine, FL passed away Wednesday the 25th of July, 2012 during a traffic accident while riding his motorcycle home. According to Highway Patrol reports, he was wearing his helmet and showed remarkable skill when laying down the bike during the unavoidable accident at the intersection of SR 16 and International Golf Parkway.

Scott was born October 31, 1994 in Tallahassee, FL. He was the eldest child of Frank James Milton III and Mindy Lynn Milton, and older brother to Lucy, Valarie and Joseph. Scott was a cherished grandson of Frank and Tracy Milton, Jack and Kathy Hopkins, Richard Whiting, and Elizabeth Whiting.

Scott will be missed by countless friends, band mates, church leaders and extended family. He was gifted intellectually and musically, in the truest sense of the word. He expressed those gifts through playing guitar, bass, percussion instruments, piano, fiddle and any other instrument that intrigued him. He had an unrivaled love of learning; from watching every documentary available on Netflix to teaching himself to write in Cyrillic, he thrived when expanding his knowledge.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 5490 CR 210 W, St Augustine, FL 32084, on Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at 6:30pm, in the chapel. Immediately thereafter there will be a very casual gathering in the adjoining church cultural hall. In honor of Scott's eccentricity, the family has decided to wear tie dye to the memorial. We invite all who wish, to do the same.

There will be a brief grave-side service the next morning, Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 10am, at Oaklawn Cemetery, 4801 San Jose Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32207. In lieu of flowers, the Milton family requests that donations be made in Scott's name to Diamonds in the Rough Farm (www.drfarm.org).

Scott's family extends their deepest gratitude to the many friends and family who have been of help and support through Scott's passing.
