Moses Parker is not a blood ancestor. He married Ruth Ann Young, the sister to my ggg-grandfather John S. Young. They were married in Tipton County, Indiana in 1854. It appears that Moses and Ruth Ann lived with or within close proximity to John and his family from the time Moses and Ruth Ann married in Tipton County till the time he died in Polk County, Iowa in 1865. He died of wounds suffered in the Civil War or disease that he picked up during the war. One of my most important unanswered questions is what happened to Ruth Ann after 1870. In the 1870 census she is living with two children, a brother and sister, who were born in New York. My guess is that they were adopted except they had a different last name from Ruth Ann. In the picture is a short biography about Moses and it mentions that when he left for war he had children.
