About William Parke

William Parke was the only one of the name who made a permanent settlement at Hopewell. The records show that in 1755 he owned the farm where Mr. Robert Brophy now [1905]lives, north of the Borough. Mr. Parke died in 1764, aged 52, and his widow, Sarah Parke, was granted letters of administration on his personal estate on March 2, 1764. The rough stone in the old Parke-Larison family plot on the farm of Mr. C. E. Voorhees with inscription “W. P. 1764. A. 52.” without doubt marks his grave, as it is in the Parke row.
