  • Notes 
    • [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.

      Luke Parker, was born between 1770 and 1775. Luke's name does not appear in the Sampson County North Carolina census as head of a family, so he was probably still living with his parents John and Rachael (Sessums) Parker, as there was a male age 16 to 26 listed in John's household. Luke Parker was mentioned in his father's will. He was to receive Johns's plantation after Rachael died. He was also to receive following his mother's death, a 1/4 share in John's two Negroes, and a 1/3 share in all of John's stock. Parker's Meeting House was founded by John Parker and meetings were held in his home. After his death, Luke Parker deeded two acres of his plantation for the church for the amount of two shillings on October 2, 1809. The trustees were to erect and build a church for the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Luke Parker married Sophia_______. He appears as a head of family on the 1810, 1820 and 1830 census for Sampson County, North Carolina. Luke Parker served as a soldier in the War of 1812, as a member of Captain Thomas Boykin's Company, North Carolina Drafted Militia, stationed at Deepwater Point. He enlisted July 24, 1813 with the rank of private. He is listed on the muster roll dated Sept 26, 1813 as "Sick in Hospital." He was mustered out October 19, 1813 and he appears on a "Muster roll of a Detachment of Married Men Discharged, by Order of Adjutant General of North Carolina, from the Detached Militia stationed in Deepwater Point. Luke Parker appears in the minutes of the County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. In Book 2, Court, May 10, 1801 he was ordered along with others to open stream of water called Little Cohary. The next week he was ordered again to work on Little Cohary. Court, May 12, 1806 he and others were ordered to serve in Fraziers District. Court, August 11, 1806, He worked on Little Cohary from Parkers Bridge to Magees Bridge. In Book 3, Court, August 14, 1809, Luke Parker sworn on the grand jury. Court, Nov. 13, 1809, a deed from Luke Parker to trustees of church for two acres of land was proven in Court for Registration. Court, May 21, 1810, Luke Parker and others to be Patriots in Captain Buttery's District. Court, Nov. 9, 1810, Luke Parker to be overseer of River in "room" of Owen Owens and the usual hands to work under him. Luke Parker sold 100 acres of land to John Parker, presumably his nephew, the son of William, on July 28, 1827. This parcel of land was located on the "West side of Little Cohary and on both sides of the beaver dam" and was sold for $100. This appears to be the identical tract of land which was granted to John Parker, Sr., October 29, 1782, from the State of North Carolina. Luke Parker sold to John Parker for $149 on February 5, 1828, four parcels of land on the "west side of Little Cohary" totaling 272 acres. All four parcels were located in the vicinity of the "beaver dam swam." On March 3, 1831 there was a final sale for $950 for nine tracts of land, totaling 831 acres to Silas Herring. After this sale Luke Parker and his family moved from Sampson County, North Carolina to Alachua (now Columbia) County, Florida. The move took place between March 1831, the date of the deed and April 1832, the date of the birth of Luke's last child, Henry Parker. Luke Parker served in the Second Seminole War after moving to Florida. He enlisted January 27, 1837 at Ft. Beckham in Captain Edward's Mounted Company, 1st Regiment, Warren's Florida Militia, as a private. He served until June 5, 1837. He reenlisted as a private June 16, 1837 in Captain Livingston's Company, 2nd Regiment, East Florida Mounted Volunteers, at Ft. Palmetto, and served until Dec. 18, 1837. He was mustered out at Ft. Gilliland, Florida. Luke Parker died June 8, 1838. Sophia Parker is believed to have died before 1840.
