Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee
Father: William Minter

         Lamira was a daughter of William Minter and Elizabeth Waggoner of Kentucky. At some point after her birth in 1812, her family removed itself from Columbia, Kentucky, to, oddly enough, Columbia, Tennessee. It was here that she met Robert A. Parker and married him, either before or after they moved to Somerville, Tennessee. They later made their final home in Memphis, obviously closer to the Mississippi River, the lifeblood of the cotton factor business. While one would expect long absences from his profession, the couple still managed to have quite a few children.

         Little else is known of her, though I am sure she enjoyed the fabulous wealth created by her husband's success in the cotton business. One thing I do know is that she purchased two plots of graves once Elmwood Cemetery opened and had her husband and several other relations reinterred into those plots. I am sure that was not cheap.
