About John Parkes

Welcome to the Moore County, Tennessee Genealogy Page. My name is John Franklin Parkes and I maintain this Web site. I have been researching my family for about seven years. Although I have only been working on my genealogy for a short time, my great-grandfather Roy H. Parkes, Sr. of Lynchburg, Tennessee spent his entire life collecting family histories, wills, deeds, pictures, and other historical treasures from this county. I was fortunate enough to obtain or get copies of most of his written records. After careful research, I realized that I am related in some way to many families of this county. Some of the surnames include Bobo, Colsher, Edens, Fanning, Felps, Flack, Holt, Lewis, Moore, Motlow, Parkes, Pearson, Pogue (Pollock), Renegar, Rountree, Simpson, Stone, Waggoner, & Walker. It may be noteworthy to mention that my great-great-great-great grandfather Allen Waller Parkes, great-great-great grandfather Rufus Burton Parks, great-great grandfather Rufus Alonzo Parks, great grandfather Roy H. Parkes, Sr., grandfather Roy H. Parkes, Jr and father Robert Jackson Parkes are all buried in the Lynchburg Cemetery, Moore County, Tennessee. God willing, I will also be buried there.
