This appears to be the correct family making her father a John L(awrence) Parker born abt Feb. 1863 and marrying Sarah Belle Pittman abt 1883.  There is no indication on the census records of race - other than white.  You might want to use the free search tool at familysearch.org to try to find more on this family by plugging in names and dates from the census data.
