Although raped by Indians, she survived the Fort Parker Massacre. Her 2nd husband, Elder John Parker, was killed. People who could escape the massacre managed to get to the men of the fort who were working in the fields, to let them know what tragedy had occurred.

The men arrived and did what they could and gathered the survivors to try to get to Fort Houston, in Anderson Co. Some of the men went back to the fort that night.

Adrion Anglin thought he saw a ghst. It was a white form in a long white dress and white flowing hair. It really sccared him. The ghost beckoned them to come. He got close and realized it was Old Granny Parker. She had walked and crawled to another house away from the fort. She was speared, abused, and left for dead. Adrion took some bedding and took her some distance away from the house and left her to return to the fort. He came back and got her and took her to the other party that was going toward Fort Houston.

Sarah "Granny" Pinson Duty Parker died soon after arriving in Fort Houston.

Two of her three step-sons (Benjamin and Silas Parker) were also killed. They were borne by Elder John Parker's 1st wife, Sarah White.

Her daughter (Elizabeth Duty Kellogg) from her 1st marriage to Richard Duty was captured. Elizabeth Duty Kellogg was ransomed within 3 months.
