Notes for David Daniel Parke:
David Parke(1766-1845) had service in the Revolutionary War as well as his father, Smith Parke(1721-1807). Father and grand-father of Elizabeth Parke who married Jacob B. Shibley.
Further research has shown Joseph Parke (1677-1760) was in the Colonial Wars and
his father Nathanial Parke was granted land in Voluntown for his service in the earlier wars.
The Colonial wars are not very well documented in the history books, but they did say that there
were many quarrels among the nations that were trying to get possession of the New World.
The colonies were in a state of constant confusion. Sweden was driven from North America
when the Dutch captured its trading forts along the Delaware River in 1655. The Dutch, in
turn, lost their New Netherland colony to the English in 1664. The English renamed the colony
New York. England and France were now left to fight for control of the continent. From the beginning
there was trouble because both nations wanted control of the rich fur trade and possession of
the Atlantic fisheries. Wars began in 1689 and were fought off and on until 1763.

So Nathanials father, Thomas Parke, born in England in 1616, died in Connecticut in 1709. He
came to America with his father, Robert Parke, in 1630 with Governor Winthrop. Thomas was
in King Phillips War (1675) This war was provoked by the settlers beginning to spread out and take
land from the Indians. King Phillip led the Indians in an attack against the settlers in 1675-1676,
but they were all put down. Thomas wife was Dorothy Thompson, daughter of Alice (Freeman)
