It has been very difficult to seperate out the Park/s/e that were in VA at that time. However, I believe the following documents may help to show that George Parks, born about 1730 in Hopewell, NJ to John Parks and Mary, is the George Parks that sought the land warrant in Frederick Co, VA in 1751 and later moved to Rowan Co, NC where he died in 1782. I had originally thought that George Parks was born about 1711 but that is an earlier George Parks and a cousin to the George Parks I am talking about. This George Parks who had the survey in Frederick Co in 1751 is a descendant of Roger Parks from NJ
