    Notes 
    • (1) Message dated 17 July 2007 from Susan Avery to the PARKE-L mailing list:

      John Parke II was already 32 years old at the time the family fled Hopewell and he was already married to Mary - surname unknown. So he did not marry in Hampshire Co. VA later WV. John Parke II died in the Battle of Grant's Hill during the French & Indian War on Sept. 14, 1758 at Fort Duquesne/Fort Pitt in present day Pittsburgh. He was part of the First Virginia Regiment. . . .

      The children of John Parke II and his wife Mary (who later married John Davis after John Parke II's death) were: John III (who married Susannah Elrod), Abigail (who married a Thompson), Anne (who married James Smith), George, who married Agness Nichols (my ancestor who moved to Rowan Co. to the Jersey Settlement in 1757), Moses, who married Mary Weir/Hill (who also moved to Rowan Co.), Allen, who married Elizabeth Giles, Noah, who married Anna Reed (who also moved to Rowan Co.), Ebenezer who married Tabitha Mills (who also moved to Rowan Co.), & Rachel who also moved to Rowan Co. with her husband Daniel Huffman. The reason that Moses, Noah, George & Rachel are not buried in the Parks Hollow cemetery is that they all left Hampshire Co. Anne who stayed in New [?] Hampshire was probably buried in Smith Chapel cemetery on Simpson Creek in Harrison Co. WV. Allen wound up in Madison Co. KY and so did Ebenezer after spending several years in Rowan Co. where his brothers Noah & George & sister Rachel lived and died. Moses also died in NC but in Mecklenburg Co. It is not known what happened to sister Abigail.
