Shared note

I have no documentation for the family of James Parker and Mary Bennett and their putative children Patrick Parker and Leonard Parker. Family legend posits that James Parker married a Mary Bennett against the wishes of his family and two of his children were Patrick and Leonard.

Patrick and Leonard are both from the same small parish in Ireland, Tubberclaire in County Westmeath, and both lived in Lanark County and Blanshard township in Perth County. Their proximity to each other over decades indicates there is some familial relationship between them, but whether they are brothers or more distant is currently unknown.
