     The PARKER-WOOLCOTT family reunion will be held on 19 May 2012 at the GS08 Pavilion in Old Post Road Park in Russellville, Arkansas. The day’s activities will begin at 9:30 a. m. and will include a catfish lunch with pot-luck dishes. A discussion about DNA testing of some cousins and what it means to the family’s history will take place at 2:00 p. m. Tested cousins include descendants of Henry PARKER (born about 1780-1782 in South Carolina) and Jeremiah M. WOOLCOTT (born in 1811 in Kentucky). Variant spellings of the WOOLCOTT surname include WOOLCUTT, WILLCUTT, WILCOT, WILLKETT, and WILKETTT. At 3:00 p. m., a tour of the cemetery where Henry PARKER, Sr., is buried will occur.

     An invitation to submit copies of pictures, family group sheets, land records, and other data for use as memorials on poster boards is extended to all descendants. For more information, you may send an e-mail to
