Col. Josiah Parker (1751-1810) served in the Revolutionary War in the 5th Virginia Regiment from Aug. 1776 until July 1778 when he resigned his commission. Parker distinguished himself at the Battle of Trenton (25-26 Dec. 1776), the Battle of Princeton (3 Jan. 1777), and the Battle of Brandywine (9-11 Sept. 1777), and was commended by Gen. George Washington. In 1781 Parker commanded the Virginia militia south of the James River. After the war, he served as a representative to Congress from 1789 to 1801. Nearby stood his home Macclesfield where he is buried.
