    • 1- In the late 1860's, the Parkers' eldest daughter, Sarah Elizabeth, married Bill Fentner and they moved to his home state of Arizona. A few months after the move to Phoenix, their small son Henry died. He was the first white child buried in the Phoenix cemetery. In 1871, the Fentners' daughter Minnie was born: the first American child born in the settlement. There were only five other families living there.

      2- Found in a Book compiled by Vera Louise Hopkins Ruterman, 18 Oct. 2002.
      Source: Clay Herrick, 1945; Mary Fenter Turner 1952 Letter to Bess Parker Saunders; 10 March 1923 Border Vidette (Nogales, Arizona Newspaper); And Bessie Parker Saunders, page 94; Helen Ellicott Ashburn oral History; U.S. Census found by Linde Roslund indicates W.D. Fenter with wife S.E. Fenter with W. H. Fenter in Phoenix, Arizona. This leads to the conclusion that their first born was named William Henry after his Grandfather. Anna Eliza, Oscar Ashburn's first wife, was probably named after her Grandmother Eliza Ann Dean; William Duke Fenter Obituary; compiled by Kathy Lynn Murray Goodwin and Vera Louise Hopkins Ruterman.
