    • "Capt. John Parker. A history of Nevada County would be in no measure complete without a story of the life of him whose name heads this sketch. The true strength of any county depends in great measure upon the number of popular and successful citizens residing there, and Capt. Parker belongs pre-eminently to this class. He is a son of Giles Parker, a native of the State of Tennessee, who died in 1859. His youth was passed in Mississippi, and there he recieved his education. At an early age, the subject of this sketch commenced to make a career for himself, and moved to Nevada County in December, 1853, where he entered land, and has at present a valuable estate. Capt. Parker has held several public offices. He enlisted in the Civil War in 1862, in Company C, Twentieth Arkansas Regiment, and was soon made captain of his company, and figured in many of the celebrated battles. He was captured at Big Black, and endured all the misery of prison life. June 20, 1850, he married Miss S. J. Crawford, daughter of John, and they are the parents of eight children, all of whom were born in Kansas, and continue to reside in this State. The family are members of the Missionary Baptist Church, the father an active Democrat, a member of the Masonic lodge, and a generally useful, happy and prosperous man."
