      (2) Lucinda PARKS is shown here as a daughter of Matthew PARKS and Apsilla BALLARD based on circumstantial evidence.

      Lucinda was married to John FROST on November 3, 1844 in Lee County, IA.

      The only household headed by a PARKS in both the 1840 and 1850 census of Lee County, IA was a household headed by Frederick PARKS, who was born in CT about 1790, according to the 1850 census. The only other PARKS listed in the 1850 census of Lee County, IA was Katharine PARKS, who born in PA about 1829, according to the 1850 census, and was then living in a household headed by Henry G. MILLER. The compiler has been unable to connect these PARKSes to Lucinda PARKS.

      Although the census information about Lucinda's birthplace is conflicting, the 1880 census of Appanoose County, IA shows that she was born in IN in about 1827, and that both of her parents were born in KY. [But see the 1900 census, in which Lucinda's father is listed as having been born in SC, and Lucinda's mother is listed as having been born in IN.]

      The compiler has researched all PARKS households which were listed in the 1830 census of IN, and which had at least one daughter who was born between 1825 and 1830. The compiler has also researched all PARKS households which were listed in the 1840 census of IN, and had at least one daughter who was born between between 1825 and 1830. Of these households, the household headed by Mathew PARKS in the 1830 census of Jackson County, IN, and the household headed by Mathew's widow, Apsaly PARKS, in the 1840 census of Jackson County, IN seem to fit best with the known facts about Lucinda PARKS.

      Both Matthew PARKS and Apsilla (BALLARD) PARKS were born in KY. After Matthew's death, Apsilla married Moses COY on July 29, 1841 in Jackson County, IN; and in about 1843, Apsilla and Moses moved to IA. Apsilla's brothers, Phillip, William and John BALLARD, had previously moved to IA, and were listed in the 1840 census of Des Moines County, IA. James R. ROSS, the minister who married Lucinda PARKS and John FROST, was also listed in the 1840 census of Des Moines County, IA.

      (3) Lucinda FROST is listed in a household headed by her husband, John FROST, in the 1880 census of Pleasant Township, Appanoose County, IA.

      Lucinda is listed in the 1880 census as a person who was then 53 years of age; therefore, according to the 1880 census, she was born in about 1827. According to the 1880 census, she was born in IN, and both of her parents were born in KY. According to the 1880 census, she suffered from a liver complaint.

      (4) Lucinda FROST is listed in a household headed by her daughter, Anna E. FROST, in the 1900 census of Pleasant Township, Appanoose County, IA, next to a household headed by George W. PARKS.

      Lucinda is listed in the 1900 census as a widow who was born in September 1826 and was then 73 years of age. According to the 1900 census, she was born in IN, her father was born in SC, and her mother was born in IN. According to the 1900 census, she had theretofore given birth to 10 children, 4 of whom were then living.

      [Note by compiler: The 1900 census information about the birthplaces of Lucinda's parents contradicts the 1880 census information about the birthplaces of her parents.]
