A Parker who is a Riggs ancestor

As I commented yesterday on the previous post before Ginger invited me to join the blog, at the stake family history center, we discovered that Submit Parker was one of Ginger's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great (that's eight great's) grandmothers. Submit was born in 1715 in Groton, Massachusetts. Her ancestors are on the FamilySearch Web site back to James Parker who was born in 1591 in Marlborough, England. James died in Massachusetts, so he was the first of that line in the Colonies.

Submit married Reuben Wood, and their daughter Anna married William Beal.  William and Anna's son Abel married Anna Franklin, and Abel and Anna's son William married Clarissa Allen.  Their daughter Harriet Sylvania Beal married Alma, the son of Artemas Millett and Susanna Peters.  Artemas was the subject of Ginger's previous post, for supervising construction of the Kirtland Temple.  We show him with two t's in Millett.

It will be interesting to see if Elliott's line goes into Submit's line.  Then at some point Andrew, Ethan and Emma would go back through more than one line to the same Parker ancestor.

Unfortunately, our Parker line only goes back to Agrippa Parker, born 1817. We're not sure where he was born, whether it was Missouri or Tennessee. I'll keep it in mind though! Good luck on your fam. hist!

Hmm. Well I wonder if Loi and my lines would intersect at any point in time? :)
