About Lucy Parke

From http://minerdescent.com/2010/05/19/roger-parkes-jr/

“Pioneers of Old Hopewell” by Ralph Ege (page 203-204) 1905 – The old family bible of his son Benjamin is now in possession of his great grandson William W. Kirkendall, who is the only descendant of Dr. Parke (Roger Parke) now living on the original tract on Stony Brook. This bible contains the following entry in the bold, plain hand of Benjamin Parke. “This book I give to my wife Anna, during her life, and at her decease to belong to my daughter, Anna Kirkendall.” Signed, Benjamin Parke.

It has been a popular belief, shared in at one time by the writer, that Benjamin Parke had children by both marriages, but the family record in the hand writing of Mr. Parke explodes this theory, as he mentions but two children, Rachel, born March 17, 1767, and Anna, born August 3, 1778.
