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
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.
