I just found this and thought it was interesting as we have been discussing the Lanier's in madison co and the Mary McCray that was working on the Lanier Plantation. Her sister Winnie married a Donegan:

I am the great, great, great grandaughter of Jacob and Annie Parker of Milton, Autauga, Al. Their daughter Nancy Parker married a Burl Lanier (1865), their children name were Charlies S .(1894), Bertha (1892), Henry L.(1894).
I'll have to ask about that. Its common knowledge in my family (Lanier) that we are related to the Parkers, but no one really can identify how. I personally think that its a mixture of family members who perhaps may have been sold to an enslaver surnamed Parker and marriage. You'll see Burrell Sr. Had two sets of children. Lots of intermarriage between the black people of this county.
thanks, their is a lot of great informatioin on this site. Please let me know. There are only 2 siblings of my grandad left and they have gotten in age. Any information would be appreciated.
