Sidetracked Again! John Parker, Senior, Part Two
John Parker's wife, who is not mentioned by name in any of the official papers was Isabella Todd. She died in 1831 before John applied for a pension.
Even John's brother, William Parker, made affidavit of John's service. Several of the documents were dated after 1837, which is when John Parker died. His children were trying to collect on his pension. One daughter was single, one a widow, and the other three were married. One son survived, John Jr., and he and John Sr.'s son-in-law, William Todd were executors of the estate.
