I think you need to be a bit cautious. I spent a couple of summers following a false lead, also involving a Samuel Parker, who I thought might be my great grandfather. Unfortunately, Parker was a very common name in the mid-nineteenth century; the census indicates hundreds of Samuel Parkers.

I gather from what you have written that the primary points of correspondence between the Parkers living with the McClatcheys and the ones that you seek are the the name, her age, and the locale. It is not clear to me whether you have any family information that names the McClatcheys.

Have you found any record of the marriage of Margaret E. Parker to John Wood? According to your information, Margaret married at the rather early age of 14. If you can find these folks in the 1860 census it would help your case. James McClatchey died on March 9, 1854, so the McClatchey's Margaret certainly had good reason to try to find other living arrangements, as would have her mother Sarah.

Best of luck on your research
