    Note, Source: Mark Freeman -
    As a young man took on the responsibility to care for his younger sister and her three young children. Later married, became quite prominent, and was mentioned in Mississippi archives.
    Ephraim moved to Alabama. In Monroe Co., AL he married 23 dec 1841 Mary Jane Stanton, and this was witnessed by John Stanton, Sr. and Daniel Fore. A John Stanton married one of Ephraim's aunts, Miriam, daughter of John, and moved to Alabama. This may have been their daughter.
    Ephraim and Mary Jane Stanton divorced 2 aug 1844 in Rankin Co., MS.
    This biography of Ephraim Hester is part of an article about his son, John T. Hester, in Godspeed's:
    "... Ephraim Hester was a son of Thomas and Martha Hester, both of whom lived and died in North Carolina, and he was born in that state August 15, 1813, and was left an orphan at an early age and his education in consequence was somewhat limited. He removed with his mother to Rankin county about 1841, and in 1844 removed to Copiah county, where he met and married Miss Mary A. Price, a native of Copiah county and who was born in 1827. She was a daughter of Charles and Isabel (Bufkin) Price. Her parents were natives of South Carolina, who removed to Mississippi about 1820. Ephraim Hester reared four children, named Martha A., the wife of L.Q. Wright, of Copiah county, John T., our subject; Isabel, educated at Hillman college, the wife of Robert O'Quinn of Copiah county, and Sallie E., educated at Hillman college, who is unmarried and lives at home. The father was a lifelong planter, and he and his wife were members of the Baptist church. He died February 4, 1875, and his widow still survives him, living on the old homestead." This account was published in 1891, Memoirs of Mississippi. If accurate, it indicates that Martha Hester returned to North Carolina before her death.

  • Biography*: Moved from NC to TX.

    Name reference - tombstone has Ralph Regan Parker
    He moved from NC to Vicksburg, MS. to TX about 1850.
    He purchased a homestead of several hundred acres of land in Oak Grove community, TX known then as Woodland Hall.

    Ralph and his wife Sarah C. Hodge Parker and their children came to Houston County, TX in the late 1850's after they received a letter from their father, Francis, who had been in Houston County for a while. In Francis's letter he painted a lovely and highly desirable picture of the part of Texas where he lived. In fact, his letter motivated and enticed his father into selling his tree farm and turpentine business in North Carolina. It was a long journey by way of two covered wagons to TX. The Parkers encountered many hardships on this journey. Heavy rains caused swollen streams that hampered travel. After several months, the Parkers found themselves in Vicksburg, MS with worn out teams. The teams for the wagons were sold and traded for two slaves. Ralph and Sarah, their children and the slaves took passage on a boat to Galveston and then up the Trinity River to White Rock Shoals where Francis met them. They went to Oak Grove Community, then known as "Woodland Hall". Here in this new and strange land, the Ralph Parker family pitched their tent for weal or for woe. Each son purchased and homesteaded land in Houston County. The Parker Cemetery in Oak Grove community is five acres of land located just east of the original homestead of Ralph R. and Sarah C. Hodge Parker. They designated this land before he died for a cemetery when his son William W. was killed when a tree fell on him. Ralph R. was one of the first to be buried in this cemetery. Two sons, Frances H. Parker and John Nelson Parker went to serve in the Confederate Army. This left twins, Ralph Delaney and William W. to help their mother, Sarah C., with all the small children and their sister, Ann Baxley with her children, as her husband had also gone to war. On May 20, 1894, Sarah, her family, and close friends celebrated her 77th birthday. Every year since that time, descendants and other people who have relatives buried here have continued to celebrate Sarah's birthday. There has been a change made in the date. It is now held on the third Sunday of May and is known as the "Parker memorial".
