Linda, I can't speak for this, but I am tracing my family back on the Parker side and have traced them to Saylor's Creek in what is now Amelia, Virginia. Civil War fans will note one of the last battles Lee's men fought was at Saylor's Creek. Just south of the battlefield was Sappony Cabins, an area the Sappony Indians settled when they were moved from the Sappony Creek in what is Chesterfield, Virginia today.

Church burned to the ground around the turn of the century.).
Whether this has a bearing on the other Cumberland and Saylorsville or not, I can't say.
just a thought... Allen
