.  W.G. Bean.  1959.  Stonewall's Man:  Sandie Pendleton.  University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, NC (excerpts online at books.google.com).  Sandie PENDLETON is our subject's son-in-law, so the book contains much useful and interesting information about the family.

Co., Baltimore, MD; online at books.google.com; online at Ancestry.com in such a form as to make it almost impossible to use):  You have to search on "John Parke," without the Corbin, if you want to pull him up on a search, but it's not worth seeking this source because the amount of information is miniscule and Hardy is notoriously inaccurate.
