Linda Gray Parker

Here is a photo of Linda Gray Parker.












My mother, Virginia Dare Sumerell, and her family lived on what she called the Parker place sometime during her teenage years.

Linda Parker was about four years younger than my mother. Linda’s parents were Wilbur Chapman Parker and Linda Estelle Rhodes. Her brothers were Franklin Stephen Parker, Joseph C. Parker, Aubrey Hamilton Parker, Theophilus Wilson Parker, Hodges Bell Parker, and Wilbur Amos Parker. Linda was married to Maxton Gardner “Max” Bennett.

Wilson Parker’s son, T. W. Parker, was in my class at New Bern High School. Hodges Bell Parker once owned a dairy farm down the road from where I grew up.
