Lucy Parker, Surry/Sussex Albemarle Parish Registe

Seeking info on LUCY PARKER who is found on the Albemarle Parish Register of Sussex Co, VA in 1771. She is one of the witnesses to the christening of Threewits Wynne, son of Robert and Lucy Wynne, along with John Sturdivant. I believe this Lucy Parker is the daughter of Drury/Drewry Parker and the late Elizabeth Barham and the Lucy who marries John Steward/Stewart/Stuart of Sussex Co, VA, before 1774. By this time Lucy's father Drury had remarried and moved to Southampton Co, VA. Things I know about these families include: William and Mary Steward were very close to the Wynne family, as well, as they, too, were witnesses to christenings in this family. Wm and Mary Steward were the parents of John Steward who married Lucretia Parker. Wm and Mary Steward lived on land adjoining the family of Charles Barham, grandparents of said Lucy/Lucretia Parker, who possibly could be living with these grandparents. John Steward and Lucy Parker named their children William B. (Barham)? Steward; Elizabeth (named for Lucy/Lucretia's mother Elizabeth Barham)?; Frederick P. (Parker, as claimed by some descendants in Kentucky); and David. John Steward died in 1789, with Lucretia Steward having a marriage bond to marry a James Spain in 1790, son of Wm Spain, also a close neighbor to the Stewards. I'm not certain this marriage took place. When the estate of John Steward of Sussex Co, VA, was finally settled in the early 1800's, only Wm Steward, Elizabeth Steward Gilliam, and Frederick P. Steward were named as heirs. Lucretia Steward had petitioned for her share early than this. In the settlement of Drury Parker's estate much later in the 1800's in Southampton VA, none of these Stewards are mentioned. However, his daughter Lucy is named as Callaway. It is highly possible that Lucy/Lucretia Steward later married a Callaway, as one of her brothers had married a Callaway as well. Any help with this puzzle would be greatly appreciated.
