Would this Charles J. Parker be any relation to Charles Parker or his brother, Capt. Clark Parker who surveyed the Ohio Territory following the War of 1812, and were given a land grant that is now the town of Mentor, OH?
Clark is my ancestor.

I don't think so...Joshua Parker, the father of Charles J. Parker, came to Ohio from Lincolnshire, England, in the 1850's.
