In 1907 James Early "Jim" Parker, Jr. (1876-1954) acquired his first land: two sections divided by the Andrews and Ector County line. He and Bessie Ola Lindley (1887-1974) married in 1908 and had six children: Jackson, Ray, James Walter, Alvin, Bessie Lou (Doelling) and Mollie. Their land holdings expanded to over 100 sections in four ranches. They raised Hereford cattle, featuring registered pure-line breeding bulls. In 1935 they moved to this country house located on 1290 acres. The Parkers began a family legacy of responsible land stewardship and community service. Jim helped organize Andrews County (1910), the Sandhills Rodeo (1932) and banking in Andrews.
