Hope I am posting this to an appropriate site!
Regarding Ida Parker's father.... It was posited in the webinar that his last name was White, but the word was not capitalized in the record (proper names seem to be consistantly capitalized). Because throughout the document people are referred to as "a white person", I'm wondering if the "white" for Ida's father is meant to describe him as being of the caucasion race. The form itself seems to be used only for the causacion race.

Jerry - thanks for the suggestion. It often pays to have an open mind about these situations. I'll keep this in mind as I pursue this family's true identity.
