Becki Holley you can go to Blackstone-170 and message me I don’t know much about our line I do know that they lived around Lake Toxaway before my line move to Piedmont we may have some information wrong we could use all the help we can get. My Dee Monroe Parker had a lot of land and sold it to someone in his family for 10 cents an acre and came to Piedmont and worked in the Mill raised 12 children and farmed some of his children was born in Andrews some in Franklin or somewhere close to these places his land he sold was at Lake Toxaway then some more of his children born in Piedmont probably on the Greenville side of Piedmont they lived on a road called Park Row in Piedmont, my grandmother was born in NC in 1904 she wasn’t the oldest I believe they was 10 younger then her, her name was Ida Parker 1904-1978 she married Ernest Dean Spearman he was a native of Piedmont, Anderson, SC, his line had been some of the first to settle around Brushy Creek, Piedmont, Anderson, SC early 1800, I’m very interested in my Parker line mom said that they was Germany, I don’t know if that’s true, my Dee Monroe Parker married Minnie Ann Cope she was a little younger then him it’s hard to track her line also. the Parker, Cope, Mathis, Brown and others all came down to Piedmont in a very large group from the picture I got they looked like a wild bunch, lol guns and liquor in hand maybe just for show but the picture had about 30 + folks they called them the Possum Gang they had a pet possum in the picture bare foot, we haven’t changed much Piedmont is full of kin folks of this bunch.
