      Birth Place: N, Wilkes, CO [Wilkes County, NC]

      (2) A household headed by Moses PARKS is listed in the 1810 census of Pendleton County, KY.

      Listed in Moses' household are 4 free white males under 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 26 and 45 years of age; 1 free white female under 10 years of age; and 1 free white female between 26 and 45 years of age.

      Assuming that Moses is the free white male listed in the 1810 census as then being between 26 and 45 years of age, he would have been born between 1765 and 1784, according to the 1810 census.

      Assuming that Moses' wife is the free white female listed in the 1810 census as then being between 26 and 45 years of age, she would have been born between 1765 and 1784, according to the 1810 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Moses' household are children of Moses and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 4 sons (which sons would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1810 census) and 1 daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1810 census).

      (3) War of 1812 Service Records [database online], Provo, UT: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 1999:

      (4) A household headed by Moses PARKS is listed in the 1820 census of Whitley County, KY.

      Listed in Moses' household are 2 free white males under 10 years of age; 2 free white males between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white male between 16 and 26 years of age; 1 free white male between 26 and 45 years of age; 2 free white females under 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 16 years of age; and 1 free white female between 16 and 26 years of age.

      Assuming that Moses is the free white male listed in the 1820 census as then being between 26 and 45 years of age, he would have been born between 1775 and 1794, according to the 1820 census.

      The compiler believes that Moses' wife probably died before August 7, 1820 (the enumeration date of the 1820 census), because Moses remarried about on 16 November 1820.

      Assuming that the other persons in Moses' household are children of Moses and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 5 sons (2 of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1820, 2 of which sons would have been born between 1804 and 1810, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1794 and 1804, according to the 1820 census) and 4 daughters (2 of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1820, 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1804 and 1810, and 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1794 and 1804, according to the 1820 census).

      (5) A household headed by Moses PARKS is listed in the 1830 census of Hendricks County, IN, next to a household headed by Reuben PARKS. Listed after Moses' surname is an illegible word which may be either "Jr" or "Sr"; however, based upon the 50-60 age bracket of the oldest male in the household, the illegible word is probably "Sr".

      Listed in Moses' household are 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white male between 15 and 20 years of age; 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white female between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 40 and 50 years of age.

      Assuming that Moses is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, he would have been born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Moses' wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, she would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Moses' household are children of Moses and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 2 sons (1 of which sons would have been born between 1815 and 1820, and 1 of which sons would have been born between 1810 and 1815, according to the 1830 census) and 2 daughters (1 of which daughters would have been born between 1815 and 1820, and 1 of which daughters would have been born between 1810 and 1815, according to the 1830 census).

      [A household headed by Moses PARKS [Jr.], a son of Moses PARKS, Sr., is listed in the 1830 census of Jackson County, IN. However, Moses [Jr.]'s name is the only information which is listed about his household in the 1830 census; there is no listing in the 1830 census of the numbers of males or females in any age bracket in Moses [Jr.]'s household.]

      (6) A household headed by Moses PARKS, Sr. is listed in the 1840 census of Hendricks County, IN, near households headed by James PARKS, Jonathan PARKS, Moses PARKS [Jr.] and Pleasant PARKS.

      Listed in Moses, Sr.'s household are 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white male between 60 and 70 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; and 1 free white female between 50 and 60 years of age.

      Assuming that Moses, Sr. is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 60 and 70 years of age, he would have been born between 1770 and 1780, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that Moses, Sr.'s wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, she would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Moses, Sr.'s household are children of Moses, Sr. and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 1 son (which son would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1840 census) and 1 daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1840 census).
