NOTE FROM CONTRIBUTOR: James Leonard Parker was born October 25, 1862 and died July 18, 1927. The Shelby County 1895 Iowa State Census lists James L. Parker, born in Madison County. Various records have different spellings for his mother's maiden name: "Shaklee", "Sharkley", "Shackley", and "Shakel". Believe "Shaklee" is correct. His grandparents were William Hardy Shaklee & Margaret Wilson.
