I am looking for any information or pictures of my ggrandpa Albert L. Parker. He was born in West Virginia. I think the state had changed from one name to another . His birthdate is 1861. His father is Thomas H. Parker and mother Caroline Boor. He lived in Bell county, ky at one time. He was married to Emaline (Emma) Hoskins. Any information would be appreciated.

West Virginia officially became a state in 1863. Prior to that, it was part of Virginia.
thank you very much for the history of the states. I didn't know that.

The 1870 Census for Monongalia County, West Virginia and Thomas H and Caroline Parker is hard to read. It has been transcribed as "Albert" however this could be Wilbert S Parker instead. Albert L Parker appears to be missing from the 1880 census.

Albert Parker married Emiline Hoskins, May 30, 1891, Bell County, Kentucky.
