Lieutenant John Thomas Parker led Company A of the 12th South Carolina Infantry in action at Sharpsburg in September 1862. After the war he practiced medicine in South Carolina, Mississippi, and finally Texas, married 3 times (in 1866, 1881, and 1895), and had at least 4 children.

He’s pictured here with his granddaughters Elsie (9) and Anna May Word (12) in a photograph shared to the Family Search database by Jerry & Tammy Van Cleve [free membership required].
