Calvert County has some great local history stories, and Calvert Library Prince Frederick is bringing one to the public on Monday, March 26, at 7pm. Kirsti Uunila, Calvert County Historic Preservation Planner, will share her knowledge of the history of the Parkers of Adelina Road and their connection to the Parker family that is descended from Sukeek, a woman enslaved in the early 1800’s who lived at a site interpreted at Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum (JPPM). Uunila excavated the site with JPPM in 2000 and 2001.
Sharon Parker, who grew up in Calvert County, left as a young adult and returned to find that her destiny had brought her back home to the rich Parker family history. She connected with Uunila to gather family information. She has turned her own family success story into a book titled, True Synergy Works…Leading Within: Seven Defining Principles of Knowing Self to Birth Greatness. She published her book last year on her birthday, May 23. The book will be available for sale and signing at the event.
