Query re: Nathan born about 1790 in Tennessee, son of John Parker. John Parker brought land in Davidson, Montgomery counties in the 1790s. Bought  land on Cross Creek, Stewart Co. Johnís will proved 1812 or 1813 in Stewart. Nathan Parker bought land on Cub Creek in 1819. Deeded land to Baptist Church there. Parker Cemetery located on that land. Stephen and David are said to have gone to Louisiana. So, we have two Nathans in Stewart: one the son of John; one the son of Nathan.Whether either of these went to Missouri remains unknown.
