Re: Re: Re: Parks/Parke Family

Hi, first, at (the delaware co. page)someone posted a great family history of ADAMS, it includes our Hannah Lord, wife of Moses Parks. It lists her mother, Lydia Adams and her grandmother Be-Ti-A, a full blood Delaware Minisink Indian (aka Lenape)Check it out!
Secondly, I took the bull by the horns and wrote to Queen Elizabeth herself, asking for background on Sir Robert Parkes. Her secretary replied that I should contact the College of Arms because they hold those type of records. To make a long story short- the college replied that they will be happy to LOOK, but I'd have to send them $500.00!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thats not happening! Thought you'd enjoy the story!
