bullet John PARKS was born on 18 May 1706 in Essex Co., VA. He died in 1793 in Wilkes Co., NC.
John Parks was said to be Irish. There is considerable controversy over the spouse of John. In some records his wife is Sarah Wingfield and in other Mary Sharp. I have listed them both, as I feel he could have been married to both since there are 17 children. Also there is a child named Wingfield, as twin to Mildred. No further record has been found of these two, so may have died young.
From diary of E M Parks:
John moved to Wilkes Co., NC before the Rev War as stated by grandson, James Parks. James also stated John was of Irish descent and Sarah was Dutch. He said John and Sarah raised 7 sons and 7 daughters to be grown.
In 1775 Taxpayers: John paid 4 poll taxes, himself and 3 negroes.
John's will, probated in Feb 1783, left most to Samuel Lined, who continued to live in Wilkes Co. Sally Sales did receive 5 shillings and John is repaid 8 pounds of tobacco.
