I've been trying to research this side of my family and was so happy to find your postings and another person's postings regarding Thomas & Jane Parry! My great-grandmother was Mary Parry, Elizabeth's older sister. That would make us fourth cousins. My aunt and my mother are your third cousins as Mary was their grandmother. Your dad David and my grandfather (Luther) were first cousins. Mary was the oldest sibling and then there was Elizabeth. So sad to hear she died 6 days after childbirth! As for the history on Mary's side of the family.... Mary Parry married David Luther Hughes (I suspect a relative since Mary's parents were first cousins from the Hughes side of the family). They lived in Nebraska, Ohio, Canada, and Corning, California. Mary's husband David was a minister for a Presbyterian church. Mary and David had 7 children: David, Alice, Anna, Winnifred, Arthur, Stanley, and Luther (my grandfather). Mary's husband David died in 1917. The family moved to San Jos! e at some point. Here is the 1920 census for them:. https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MH4K-122 Mary died in 1952 in San Jose. Here is the headstone where she and her husband are buried (both of their bithdates/deaths are on it) http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=72507547 (btw, the date findagrave.com lists on the page as to Mary's birth date is incorrect - it is correct on the headstone) I have LOTS of pictures of Mary & David Hughes's family. I'd love to exchange email addresses to exchange pictures if you're interested! Best, Lisa Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
