If you google: +Christiana +"William Parker" amongst the variety of sites you'll get is one that has about 6 pictures of William Parker's House from a variety of views. Millersville University in Pennsylvania has quite a lot on William Parker and you will find a Local History site for Christiana that does as well. There's a newspaper article too that relates a "reunion" that took place a few years ago between Gorsuch descendants and Christiana family descendants. A cousin of yours from Buxton, attended.
I have a relative who I am almost sure was one of the rioters and I've found plenty of newspaper articles from that time period on the web that give transcripts from the trial.
Do you have a subscription to the Godfrey Library? If you do, use the Historical New York Times database and you'll find a lot of articles on the Riot.
Hope this gives you a place to start looking,
