    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      As of April, 1995, there has been no confirmation that Grizella and Alexander PARK I were the parents of William PARK I. This compiler has presumed their relationship based solely on dates and events the two families have in common. Both men gave their birthplace/nativity as "Dumfries or Dumfrieshire, SCOTLAND." Alexander's tombstone inscription says he emigrated from SCOTLAND in 181_ . . . the last digit is extremely difficult to read, but this compiler feels the date to be 1819. Park W. CARTER located a microfilm which indicates that Alexander and Grizel PARK, aged 55 and 53 respectively, arrived on the Brig, "Susan," 14 June 1819. Port of entry was Philadelphia. William's tombstone inscription says he ". . . came to America 1817. . . ."

      William and Jane PARK named their first son "Alexander," then two daughters were named "Jane" and "Elizabeth" (probably after Jane and
      her mother.) A later female child was named "Grizell" and was later reported as "Grace" on U.S. Census. Tracing Your Scottish Ancestor
      by Kathleen B. Cory, p 70-71, discusses the interchangeable use of these two female names.)

      Lastly, throughout the 1820-1870 census records, members of the two families appear in close proximity in the Hanover/Saluda areas.

      In October, 1994, Park W. CARTER located William PARK'S "First Papers" in Jefferson Co., IN. page 224 of Civil Order Book D reads:

      "William PARKS an alien in order to become a citzen of the United States makes registry and report of himself to the Jefferson Circuit Court and to the clerk thereof. Said PARKS is aged forty years and was born in Dumfrieshire County in SCOTLAND owes allegiance to George the fourth King of Great Britain and its dependencies and on his oath states that he is bona fide his intention to become a citizen of the United States and to renounce all allegiance to any prince potentate state or sovereignty whatever and particularly to George the fourth King of Great Britain and its dependencies whereof which he is at this time a subject. And that the State of Indiana is his intended place of residence."
