From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions welcome!]

Bartholomew Moore Parker (1878-1918) was born 5 July 1878 at Raleigh, North Carolina, son of Dr. Joseph Parker and Annie Maria (Moore) Parker.  They were born at Tarboro, North Carolina, and Raleigh, North Carolina, respectively.

On 10 August 1904 in Wake County, North Carolina, Bartholomew Moore Parker married Elizabeth Jiggetts Stamps, daughter of Edward Roe Stamps and Elizabeth Vines (Williams) Stamps.  They had at least three children:
  • Annie M. Parker, born about 1906 in South Carolina
  • Bettie S. Parker, born about 1907 in North Carolina
  • Bartholomew Moore Parker, Jr., born 25 May 1909 in North Carolina.
Their mother Elizabeth died in 1910 when her youngest child was less than a year old.

On 10 November 1915, Bartholomew Moore Parker, Sr., married for a second time, to Margaret Augusta Faucett, daughter of Whitfield Anselone Faucett and Amelia Holmes (Taylor) Faucett.
They had at least one child, a son James Moore Parker.

Bartholomew Moore Parker, Sr., spent his life in the textile industry.  He became head of the Department of Carding and Spinning at North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts at West Raleigh, North Carolina.

Like his first wife, Bartholomew Moore Parker, Sr., also died young, on 12 October 1918 at Raleigh, North Carolina.  The 1920 Census shows his widow, Margaret Augusta (Faucett) Parker with the four children.
