DRAPER Family and related ancestors

Edited: 1044113184000
Surnames: Draper, Edwards, Parker, Sumner, Tadlock
In following our Draper line in Northampton Co. we have been able to piece together the following:

William Draper m. 1809 Talitha Parker
Thomas Draper m.1st Sherrod 2nd Nancy Anna Parker before 1820. The husbands were brothers and the wives sisters. Have not been able to follow the Draper line back past this point but believe that it originates in Va.

Parents of Talitha and Nancy Anna Parker were Aaron Parker and Mary Edwards. I have his lineage back to the immigrant but need help with the Edwards line.

Aaron's parents were John Parker and Lucy Tadlock. Her parents were John Tadlock and Sally Sumner. Need help with the Tadlock and Sumner lines.

The date that you gave for Arodi's birth (06-03-1929) is 100 years off from what I have. I assume this is a typo as I show Thomas and Anna Draper as having a son Arodi born 06-03-1829.

Please send whatever informtion you can as I know very little about this branch.

Surnames: Draper, Glover, Nelson
This past Sunday, I came home from the Outer Banks the long way, passing through Rich Square and Lasker. I talked to some people in Rich Square and checked out a cemetery there without finding anything new. I also visited the New Hope cemetery in Lasker and saw the gravesites of Arodi and family.

Our ancestor, Solomon (Arodi's brother), was captured at Gettysburg and later died in the yankee prison at Fort Delaware. He is buried in Finn's Point National Military Cemetery in NJ. I found his widow, Martha Elizabeth, in the 1870 Northampton Co. census. Does anyone have anything on her after that ? She could well have been alive at the time of the 1880 and 1900 census counts.

There is some confusion regarding Martha's last name. When she and Solomon were married in 1849, she was Martha Elizabeth Glover; however, when son, Benjamin Erving Draper, married in 1886, he listed his mother as Martha Nelson. This, plus the fact that there is a nine year old child named Martha Glover living the 1850 Draper household, leads me to believe that the mother's maiden name was Nelson and that she first married a Glover who died, after which she married Solomon Draper.

I have been looking into the possibility that our Thomas may have been from Gates Co. NC
Have you looked at this as an option?
