Parker, Alexander a noted Quaker preacher, one of the most intimate friends and frequent companions of George Fox in his Gospel labors, was born about 1628. Like most of his brethren in the ministry, he suffered much for his religious testimony, and was diligently engaged in the Lord's service. There is little to be found on record concerning this saintly man. The latter part of his life he spent in London, where he died in peace with man and God, Jan. 8,1689. See Janney, History of the Friends, 2:433, 434.
