Notes for T

32. Thomas PARKS III was born on 26 May 1751 in Probably, Albemarle, Virginia. He died on
22 Nov 1819 in Wilkes, North Carolina. !Information on this line was obtained from D. L Parks, a
direct descendant of
Thomas Parks III. It was copied as follows:

!Birth and death dates from the Neel-Dickson Genealogy by William Trent Neel on
micro-film in the National Archives. Marriage confirmed by same. Also by
Biography of Judge Walter Wagner Faw. Found in Volume IV, pages 960-964 of a
four volume book entitled "A History of the Party and It's Representatives-Past
and Present", By Austin P. Foster, Recording Secretary Tennessee Historical
Society and Albert H. Roberts, Ex-Govenor of Tennessee.
Revolutionary War record from DAR Number 708680.

For any searcher studying this line this writer has a strong belief that Ambrose
Parks (no record of marriage) and Lavina Parks who married Henry Gilbreath
belong to this family. Thomas Parks who married Rachel Hoot and Elizabeth Parks
who married Allen are possibilities.

Marriage record from Ashe Co. N. C. Heritage Book
Copy of will probated 12 Oct 1870 in Rusk, Cherokee Co. TX.

Thomas Parks III did not leave a Last Will and Testament. However,

appointed administrators of Thomas Parks, deceased, giving a bond in the
sum of $10,000. George Parks was a partner with Finley & Waugh, his
share being $7, 836.53 and was county trustee for several years. There is a
record of powers of attorney executed to George Parks by his brothers and

Parks and Charity Chandler and her husband Richard Chandler of Franklin
