From LaFaye C. Sutkin, Ph.D. - lafaye.sutkin@verizon.net
Hardships in VA after the Revolutionary War caused John Parker to move hisfamily to Elbert Co., GA. As civilization made inroads into GA, he decided to move his family to TN where economic possibilities were rumored to bo better. Thistrek was made about 1803.
Qfter listening to the stories of trappers, the Parkersand many of their congregation, set off for IL, where Sallie died, and then off to TX.
About 1832, the Parker family moved to Texas from Quincy, IL, taking the Baptist Church in IL with them. On Sat. evenings they would pitch theirtents and on Sun. all of the ordinances of the Church were observed.
The caravan of the Parkers came up on the east side of the Navasota River until theystruck the old San Antonio Road and made their way to the present Houston County, near the north line of the present town of Grapeland. From this place the Parker clan scattered. Daniel took his children and went a few miles north to what is nowElkhart, in Anderson Co.. Silas, James, Benjamin and Elder John pushed onto the west. They first took their families to the last fort that was thought to be safe from Indian attack, Fort Houston, which is about 2 mi. west of the presentcity of Palestine, Anderson Co., TX. The fort was an important pointof frontier defense from 1836-1839. It was abandoned in 1841, and later the site became home of Judge John H. Reagan, called Ft. Houston.
Elder John, Silas,and James W. Parker moved on to the head of the Navasota River in present Limestone Co., near the present Groesbeck. Here they erected Parker's Fort, a kind of wooden barracade or wall around their cabins, as a means of protection against hostile Indians.
On the morning of May 9, 1836, Indians attacked the fort and Elder John was killed. He is buried at Fort Parker and is one of the two revolutionary soldiers buried in TX.
Fort Parker has been rebuilt by the State ofTexas and completely restored, even to some iron cooking vessels of John Parker, which are in his cabin in the center row of fort cabins.
LaFaye C. Sutkin, Ph. D. has contributed a good deal of material on the Parker Family using her aunt's book "Reagan-Parker Family Genealogy".
