  • Samuel (3) (Parker) [James(2), James(1)] early left Groton.
    • The confusion which has existed regarding him and his bro. James and their cousins Samuel and James [sons. of Samuel(2)] makes it necessary to present proof of connection as far as possible.
    • Samuel Parker of Boston, with w. Mary, sold in 1707, to his "brother" Phineas Parker, his rights in the estate of their f., James Parker, late of Groton (deed 14, p. 256),
      • and Oct. 22, 1728 (deed 29, p. 156), Samuel Parker of Coventry, Conn., sold his rights in the estate of "my grandfather, Cap. James Parker of Groton."
    • Evidence will be given later to show that as his cousin Samuel remarried in Groton, it must have been this Samuel who was in Coventry.
    • At Boston in the manuscript records of the First Church, I find that Samuel Parker was admitted a member July 26, 1702.
      • Three children of Samuel and Mary are entered in the town record of births and they were promptly bap. In the First Church.
      • Further, the church records show that, Jan. 23, 1709-10, Samuel Parker was dismissed to the church in Stonington, Conn.
    • Next the printed records of Stonington Church, though they do not have any notice of his being admitted, contain this item under date of Feb. 26, 1710: "Samuel Parker's dismission was publicly read."
    • Soon after this the town records of Coventry begin to show the birth of chn. to Dea. Samuel and Mary Parker, and
    • finally we have the death there, of Dea. Samuel Parker, Oct. 30, 1775, in his 94th year. The Samuel we are tracing began his 94th year Sept. 22, 1775. There seems no need of argument to prove identity.

Parker in America, page 537:

Samuel(3) [James(2), James(1)] early left Groton.  The confusion which has existed regarding him and his brother James and their cousins Samuel and James [sons of Samuel(2)] makes it necessary to present proof of connections as far as possible.

Samuel Parker of Boston, with wife Mary, sold in 1707, to his "brother" Phineas Parker, his rights in the estate of their father, James Parker, late of Groton (deed 14, p. 256), and October 22, 1728 (deed 29, p. 156), Samuel Parker of Coventry, Conn., sold his rights in the estate of "my grandfather, Cap. James Parker of Groton."  . . .  At Boston in the manuscript records of the First Church, I find that Samuel Parker was admitted a member July 26, 1702.  Three children of Samuel and Mary are entered in the town record of births and they were promptly baptised in the First Church.  Further, the church records show that, January 23, 1709-10, Samuel Parker was dismissed to the church in Stonington, Conn.  Next the printed records of Stonington Church, though they do not have any notice of his being admitted, contain this item under date of February 26, 1710:  "Samuel Parker's dismission was publicly read."  Soon after this the town records of Coventry begin to show the birth of children to Deacon Samuel and Mary Parker, and finally we have the death there, of Deacon Samuel Parker, October 30, 1775, in his 94th year.  The Samuel we are tracing began his 94th year September 22, 1775.  . . .  Children:   Samuel, b. Mch. 6, 1704, in Boston, m., in Coventry(?) Experience _______.   Mary, b. June 26, 1706, in Boston.   James, b. July 13, 1708, in Boston; m. (1), Coventry, Tabitha Strong and (2) Elizabeth Skinner.   John, b. July 21, 1714, in Coventry.   Esther, b. May 28, 1716, in Coventry.   Phineas, b. Feb. 12, 1719, in Coventry; m. there Martha Meraugh.   Joseph, b. Nov. 2, 1723, in Coventry; m. Racheal _______.

(Who was Mary, wife of Deacon Samuel and were there other children?  The skip from 1708 to 1714 is suggestive of missing names.) Please see "Answer to Note 694" at the end of this paper for more on this family.

COMMENT:

 • If Samuel was 94 in 1775, then he was born in 1681, not in 1682 as stated in the notes under his father.

WIVES: Mary Carder http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=62427866

• This unreadable gravestone is believed to be of Mary Carder, the first wife of Dea. Samuel Parker. He was b. Sept. 22, 1682 at Groton, Mass., s. of cousins James and Mary (Parker) Parker. He d. Oct. 30, 1775 at Coventry, Conn., Æ 94.
• According to information provided by a volunteer, Mary's gravestone is next to Dea. Parker's second wife Hannah Lothrop, the former widow of Samuel Thompson of Farmington, Conn. There is no record of when Dea. Parker and the widow Hannah Thompson married, but in September 1742 Hannah was still called the widow Hannah Thompson when the estate of her deceased husband was ordered to be distributed to the heirs, including her widow's thirds. In September 1742, Dea. Parker was 60 years old.
• Dea. Samuel Parker and Mary Carder m. of record June 1, 1704 at Boston, Mass. (by Rev. James Allen.) Whereas the ancestry of Dea. Parker is known, the ancestry of Mary Carder is not conclusively known, but her parents were possibly Gilbert Carder (q.v. Cordey) and his wife Joanne. The date of Mary's death at Coventry, Conn. is not of printed record. Their first three children were b. of record at Boston (Samuel, Jr., Mary and James) with the four youngest of record at Coventry, Conn. (John, Esther, Phineas and Joseph.) Their dau. Mary, born at Boston, m. Phineas Strong at Coventry in 1724 and she died as Mary (Parker) Strong at Coventry in 1757. She and her husband have their own gravestones at Coventry's South Street Cemetery.

DEATH:

 • In "Births, Marriages, Baptisms and Deaths from the Records of the Town and Churches in Coventry, Connecticut 1711-1844" (Dimock, 1897) on page 191 in Deaths from Town Records it is said that Deacon Samuel Parker died October 30, 1775 in his 94th year.  On page 222 in Death Records of First Church it is said that "Aged Deacon Parker" died in September 1775.

Jack Parker has sent me a photo of his tombstone.  It reads

In Memory of Deacon Sam'l Parker who departed this Life on ye 30th day of October 1775 in ye 94th year of his Age having done Eminent Service for God & his Generation in Various Public offices
