Raising a family was not easy in those days, and the Parkers had 14 children to feed and clothe and educate. The Parkers were most fortunate, without benefit of modern medicine, they only had one child die at birth. This was contrary to the many birth fatalities of the time. To illustrate the deep inner strength and determination of Ellen Parker, during one of her pregnancies, she fell from the corn crib in her sixth month. The fall caused her to go into labor prematurely, and her twin sons were born, each weighing about 1 1/2 pounds at birth. Premature babies born in those days, without incubators, rarely survived, but Ellen was determined to save her babies. Although little Williard only lived a few hours, Grover was kept alive. He was so tiny that one of his sister's wedding rings could be placed around his arm all the way to his shoulder.
