Descendants of David Parks

*****************1st Generation*****************

    David Parks was born 19 July 1775, in Maryland the son of Samuel Parks. It has been said by some that David was born in Co., Donegal, Ireland, however, the 1850 Virginia Twp., Coschocton Co., Ohio census states that he was born in Maryland. David married _____, some say Catherine, others say Mary. Mrs. Parks was born ca 1775. David and his wife migrated to Ohio. The 1800 Ohio Census Records were burned by the British in the War of 1812, so it is hard to find any information. A brief history of Ohio and the counties our family were in is needed I believe. David and his family were 1st listed in the 1803 Newton, Washington Co., Ohio Census Records. Note: A part of Washington Co., Ohio split into Muskingum Co. in 1804, and then into Coshocton Co. in 1811. David and his family are then in 1820 Washington Twp., Coshocton Co., Ohio Census, pg. 50 with 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 18-26 (Joseph), 1 male 45 +, 4 females under 10, 1 female 10-16, 1 female 16-18, 1 female 18-26 (Jane Richcreek Parks), and 1 female 26-45, Note: Since I have been unable to find Joseph and Jane in the Census Records (married July 1820), and the census was taken in August 1820, I believe two of these children were Joseph and Jane, the 1830 Virginia Twp., Coshocton Co., Ohio Census, pg. 11, with 1 male 15-20, 1 male 50-60, 2 females 10-15, 2 females 15-20, and 1 female 50-60, the 1840 Virginia Twp., Coshocton Co., Ohio Census, pg. 358 with 1 male 60-70, 2 females 20-30, and 1 female 50-60. They were also listed in the 1850 Virginia Twp., Coshocton Co., Ohio Census, pg. 117. David died on 01 May 1866 and is buried in the Fivecoat Cemetery, Coshocton Co., Ohio. He left a Will dated 06 Jul 1861, and produced in court on 20 Jul 1866. In his will he mentions his children, Joseph and William Parks, and his daughters Mary Fivecoat, Sarah Musgrove, Elizabeth Squire, Deborah Squire, and Catherine McCloy.
