I'm stuck - serious brick wall. I cannot find James Parks further back than the 1850 U. S. Federal Census for Blackford County, Indiana and 1860 census for Delaware County, Indiana. He is my great great grandfather. James gives Virginia as his birthplace in both censuses, and his given age would indicate he was born about 1790-1791. We have DNA posted at FamilyTreeDNA and the results are also posted on Ancestry.com. We belong to the Western Atlantic Haplogroup and indications are James' family was from Ireland. This is my mother's father's family.
