NameDora Reeves
Shared note

Middle name supposedly from family Bible. Could she be Mrs. Dorcas Parker, wife of Durham Parker, living in Kershaw Co. in 1880? Mr. and Mrs. Parker were not on the 1900 in SC, so the death date fits with other known information.

Durham Parker (Son of Vincent and Martha Parker) b. abt 1850 SC

Children: Henry b. abt 1874 SC Walter b. abt 1876 SC William b. abt 1879 SC

NOT Willliam Jonas Parker (1878- 1946).
