LUKE2 PARKER (JOHN1) was born Aft. 1770 in North Carolina, and died June 8, 1838 in Columbia County, Florida. He married SOPHIA Abt. 1812 in North Carolina.
Notes for Luke: His name does not appear in the Sampson Co NC census as head of a family, so he was probably still living with his parents John and Rachael (Sessums) Parker, as there was a male age 16 to 26 listed in John's household. Luke Parker was mentioned in his father's will. He was to receive Johns's plantation after Rachael died. He was also to receive following his mother's death, a 1/4 share in John's two Negroes, and a 1/3 share in all of John's stock. Parker's Meeting House was founded by John Parker and meetings were held in his home. After his death, Luke Parker deeded two acres of his plantation for the church for the amount of two shillings on October 2, 1809. The trustees were to erect and build a church for the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Luke Parker married Sophia_______. He appears as a head of family on the 1810, 1820 and 1830 census for Sampson Co NC. Luke Parker served as a soldier in the War of 1812, as a member of Captain Thomas Boykin's Company, North Carolina Drafted Militia, stationed at Deepwater Point. He enlisted July 24, 1813 with the rank of private. He is listed on the muster roll dated Sept 26, 1813 as "Sick in Hospital." He was mustered out October 19, 1813 and he appears on a "Muster roll of a Detachment of Married Men Discharged, by Order of Adjutant General of North Carolina, from the Detached Militia stationed in Deepwater Point.

This parcel of land was located on the "West side of Little Cohary and on both sides of the beaver dam" and was sold for $100. This appears to be the identical tract of land which was granted to John Parker, Sr., October 29, 1782, from the State of North Carolina. Luke Parker sold to John Parker for $149 on February 5, 1828, four parcels of land on the "west side of Little Cohary" totaling 272 acres.
