    ...Edmund BOOKER of Gloucester, Essex and Amelia.

Combs Researcher Rue Avant adds that Rebecca (Rebekah) BOOKER, b ca 1728, was the daughter of Edmund and Rebecca LEAKE Booker; and m by 1757, Samuel OVERTON (s/o Capt. James and Mary Elizabeth GARLAND Overton). Frances BOOKER'S Clement husband not yet identified (See also Overton Families)

    28 Sep 1758 (Amelia Wills) Will of Edmund BOOKER, Sr. Dtd 10 Nov 1757. Prvd. 28 Sep 1758. Legatees: wife, Jane, daughter Frances CLEMENT, sons Edmund, John, William and Edward, and daughter Rebecca OVERTON. (Virginia Families, The Booker Family, Vol. 1, p. 175)

    PARHAM BOOKER [BK.1.4.4] (6 Nov. 1764 - 27 Jan. 1833) was named for his distant cousin Parham Booker [BK.3.2.3] of Halifax County. This second PARHAM BOOKER had a large family in 1782. This was eighteen years before Parham Booker [BK.1.4.4] made his marriage bond to wed Elizabeth Lewis OVERTON [BK.] in Amelia County 15 May 1800. She was the daughter of Mary Overton who consented to the marriage. Rev. John Skurrey married them 29 May 1800.
    In October 1801 Parham emancipated sixty-five-year-old Dick that he had purchased from the estate of Efford Booker [BK.8.1.3].
    Parham went into business with Edmund MORTON in Petersburg, Virginia. In 1802 when their company, Booker & MORTON, closed, Parham was left owing Buchanan & Dunlop £1,500. To secure the debt, Parham put up 111¾ acres on the Appomattox River his wife inherited, 74 acres Parham got from Sarah Booker, and thirteen “Negro” slaves.
    Elizabeth (Overton) Booker was evidently unhappy about the division of her father’s estate. On 10 May 1847, she appointed Richard Randolph “of the city of Williamsburg, Va.” to demand from the Land Office in the south of Ohio all the warrants, patents, etc. the state of Virginia gave to her father for his service in the Revolutionary War. She also directed him to recover everything to which she may be entitled as an heir of “Capt. Overton.”
    Parham died in Amelia County (will dated 21 Nov. 1830, recorded 28 Feb. 1833). He identified three children in his will. They buried both Parham and Elizabeth at their home, “Cedar Grove.”
