For those of you interested in the William Isaac Kinney & Sallie Parks line, "Liberty Man" is a book written by Kinney's 5th great grandson, Brad Livengood, was published in 2018. It weaves fact and fiction in this descriptive book; many of which is due to family folklore. But, it is interesting to see a book written about William & Sarah Kinney. I hope to find some truth/answers to mysteries regarding William Kinney since he is also my 5th great grandfather.

“This is in question to a Sallie or Sarah Parks b. 1750 d. 1820. She married William Issac Kinney b. 1733 d. 1834. Stories say they were married in the Waxhaws (the Carolinas) and lived in Rowan County, North Carolina. Does anyone know who Sallie or Sarah Parks' parents were and from where they came?”

My Park/Parke line came from New London, CT, and relocated to Oneida County, New York.

One more question... in looking at the published DNA results, I notice a match for my father is listed at the bottom in the "Ungrouped" section. But, he is a match at the 67 marker level (which is all that both my dad and this man had tested) with a smaller variation than many who have been grouped together elsewhere on the page. Could you please tell me why Kit # 115598 for George Clark has not been grouped with the descendants of Richard Park (1609-1665) who arrived aboard the 'Defence' in 1635? Thanks for any information!

Hello, I am seeking contact with anyone who is related to Rowland Park (1805 NY-1887 KS) or who is affiliated with Kit #136986 or Kit #177304 or Kit #49182. My father, Donald Edward Park (1934 KS-2014 LA) was one of the early participants in the Y-DNA project of the Parke Society, submitting his sample in 2006 (Kit #64571). We were very fortunate to have a positive identification of our immigrant ancestor with this project, as a definitive sample for Richard Park (1609 England-1665 MA, arrived aboard the 'Defence' in 1635) was submitted and was a match to my dad. But, like many of us here seeking our lineage, we have an immigrant ancestor, going down to his only son Thomas, and we have many generations going up from my dad... but we have a gap in the middle that we truly want to connect. Over the last 13 years, only two other samples have matched my dad's in the Parke Society project. I am hoping to find someone related to these samples, or to these men, so that we may upload our DNA sample profiles to other (perhaps more traveled) sites and use triangulation to identify more relatives. Currently, I do not know exactly how Rowland and Elza are connected... as we both have the same missing link in the middle. But, hopefully, adding more lines into the mix will help us identify family units and provide more information as a whole. Thanks for any replies! ~Evey

Wondering if anyone has any connections with the REID or BABBS families in TN (about 1830) or NC (about 1790)?

Hi there! I'm Adrienne, posting for my husband Chris. We just received his Y-67 results and noticed he has several matches in group 34. His oldest known ancestor is James Stewart Parks born about 1770. He appears in Louisiana in 1810. Died 1841 in Ascension parish, Louisiana. Can't wait to figure out where this guy came from!

“I'm Q M242 last name Parks (added "s" when we came to the USA) 5th Great Grandfather was Andrew Pake (name changed several times Pake, Pack, Paik, Park, Parks) b. abt 1760 in Co. Tyrone moved to Bathgate, Scotland. My whole family is from that area in Scotland until the 1920's (to Cape Breton then to New Jersey). my question is why in the world is everything i'm reading say I'm from the Middle East???? this makes absolutely no sense. I'm thinking the money spent was waste of time.”
