      THOMAS PARKS . . . was born in Amelia Co., Va., about 1750 and was thrice married. His first wife was a Miss White, who bore him one child, a son, William, and died. The descendants of William Parks are very numerous and are a highly respected and useful people. Thomas Parks' second wife was a Miss Hornbuckle, who died about six months from date of their marriage. His third and last wife was Annie, daughter of John and Amelia Brockman, a prominent and highly respected North Carolina family. He settled in Laurens district, S. C., near the Enoree river, some four miles west of the present town of Woodruff, in Spartanburg Co., S. C, where at the time of his death, Dec. 27, 1831, he owned a good plantation, nineteen negroe slaves and other valuable property. His son. Col. James Parks, administered on the estate and the records of the court at Laurens show most excellent management of the same, one remarkable feature being the appraised valuation and sales account were very nearly the same amount. The family "grandfather" clock sold for fifty dollars. Thomas and Annie Parks reared a large and interesting family. He died honored and respected by his neighbors. Mrs. Parks died, date not known, loved and esteemed. She was a consistent member of the Baptist Church; an excellent housekeeper, industrious and frugal; a congenial companion, a true helpmate. The sons and daughters were trained to habits of industry and frugality and were educated in the neighborhood schools and attended worship at the neighboring churches. The men were good husbands and successful farmers, and the daughters good wives and excellent housekeepers.
