My grandfather, Benjamin F. Parker who was married to Niki and had a daughter( my mother ) Patricia.  He was a Native American and lived on an army base in  Tacoma Washington at one point but was from bakersfield california. He died in the vietnam war and we have been trying to find this side of the family for a while now.  If anyone has any information on anything regarding the family please let me know, i believe that Bennies mothers name was Ann Campos. He had one brother, George Parker who also served in the Vietnam War and four sisters, Marianne, Mattle Jean, Bernice, and Rosie May Montez.  He had a cousin, Barbara Weldon who accepted the Military Merit Medal for my grandfather along with Monika and my mother Patricia Parker.  He was believed to be a part of the Yokut tribe and lived on a reservation near Bakersfield California.  He doesnt seem to be regsitered with any Indian tribes or offices and its very frustrating just trying to find some of his fmaily.  If anyone can help or knows anything it would be greatly appreciated..
