I think I found them. He is listed in most of the census as being born in 1912. That is not unusual the older census often about ages listed incorrect ages.

I found most of the census on findmypast. I can post the translations on his and his wife's profiles as notes, and source them. That way you can see them and use them as you would like.

I am sure that I am correct because I found his wife in a census with her parents. Her widowed mother was living with Roy and his wife in 1940. The same name listed as her mother in the 1920 census.

I would like to find his parents to make sure I’m working with my set of Parker family, my line is in the Piedmont, Anderson County area also
I didn’t find any birth record for him, and he was married before draft.
It looks like his father was born in Georgia. This is the only Roy Parker around that time in Anderson.

There were 3 others about the same age in Newbury, Richland, and Spartanburg. He was the only one in Anderson.

I posted the transcriptions so that you could look at them. I found most of them on findmypast. If they are not correct you can delete them. I wanted you to be able to look at them. There are still going to be some records that are not as easy to access for him, like a birth certificate. You may be able to order one as a family member but it is probably not available to the general public yet.

Ok Chris I don’t believe this set of Parker family is not my grandmother’s line but the other set of Parker’s in Georgia they married into my dads Blackstone family I believe, so maybe someone else will work on them, if not I will get back to them at a later time.  Thanks for helping

James Burton Parker-39036 doesn’t look like his dad he had a son named Ray Parker

I put his family tree on Roy's profile yesterday.
