WikiTree profile: William Parker
in The Tree House by Donnie Blackstone G2G6 Pilot (236k points)

Your info shows William Parker Jr. was born in NC in 1817 and died in GA.  When the Civil War began, he would have been ~54 years old.  I would guess he was too old to serve.  I don't usually see soldiers this old.  Of course things did get desperate in NC.  Also, is it possible he moved to GA before the war started?  If so, then he could have served in a GA unit and not a NC unit.  You need to identify where he was living before the war in the 1860 Census.

I searched Fold3 for "William Parker" in North Carolina regiments and got 767 hits.  At his age, he may have served in a home guard or a militia.  

You also say he served in the 62 North Carolina Regiment.  There is a William Parker who was in Company D but he was 25 years old at his enlistment.  That is not your ancestor; possibly a son or another relative.

I'm not sure it may have been a son I guess I will just keep this information and try and do some more research,  they may have lived in Georgia , Jackson County, N.C ( was part of Franklin ) and Hiwassee, Georgia and Pendleton District, S.C  (now Anderson County) are all so close to each other and my family lived in all three one big circle and they was a 3rd great Grandfather Capt A.D . Hooper CSA, that was in this same Regiment some of these men watched over the area they lived in possible if I could just find out their age , what do you thank I need to do, Thanks

Having looked through a lot of records, there are so many discrepancies in his profile, I am concerned that there are a couple of people mixed into the profile, or some of the information is just "not correct".   

I did find the death certificate for his son "Jerry Miah"  "North Carolina Deaths, 1906-1930," database with images, FamilySearch( : 8 December 2014), William Parker in entry for Jery Miah Parker, 13 Apr 1916; citing Coney Fork, Jackson, North Carolina, reference fn 164 cn 491, State Department of Archives and History, Raleigh; FHL microfilm 1,878,027.  Which proves that your 1850 census citation and the marriage information go together.   However, a couple of the citations for marriage indicate he is William JR, which means the father would have been William Sr.   The Find a Grave has a very different birth.   

I will help with the "hunt"

I don't thank Jr is right I don't remember adding Jr I can take it away now his dad Solomon Parker is William Solomon Parker Jr, but his military information just had Solomon Parker because his dad is William Solomon Parker Sr,  do you want me to change the date to b.1812 and take the Jr off his wife is Lucinda Queen I believe that will make it right, Thank's

Add b.1817 came from the Census saying he was 33 in 1850 I bet it says 38 this would probably be 1812 birth , Thanks
Robin Lee you got time to help with this Parker group Geni has 18 children I new that The Parker family was big but I believe this is two Women,  just look at it one day a tell me what you,  Thank I was thanking Civil War but these N.C people may  have been fighting the war 1812 and war of 1830's against Cherokee Indian Sylva Jackson County North Carolina records would sure be nice to have for the Parker family,  Thank's

Do you know the unit name?  I found this "North Carolina, Civil War Service Records of Confederate Soldiers, 1861-1865," database,FamilySearch ( : accessed 4 June 2016), William J Parker, 1862; from "Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers Who Served in Organizations from the State of North Carolina," database, : n.d.); citing military unit Seventh Battalion, Cavalry, NARA microfilm publication M270 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1960), roll 43.

This maybe a son what do you thank this Corner of N.C, George and S.C they actually didn't even know what State they lived in because the family owned Land in all three States,  my Hooper / Parker / Queen / Bryson and Related Families was a big group around Pendleton District, S.C,  Northwestern N.C and Northern, Georgia one big circle and these families had 12 or more children Who all was in Captain Kirk's Company and Winfield Scott and Captain A.D . Hooper CSA  it looks like I keep seeing a lot of these name's,  around here I believe they all was in the War, lol , Thank's for this information
