My Name (First & Last): Thomas Milton Henry Parsons

My Email: Henry.Parsons@frontier.com

Query Message:
Stumped at proving my paternal great grandfather’s place and date of birth, wife, and parents. We have several candidates, but none can be proved satisfactorily. On the other hand, there is quite a lot of information about my great-grandfather and great-grandmother as they migrated west from New York (probably) to Wisconsin (met and married my great grandmother and had several children), Minnesota (another birth), Montana (3 more births), Nevada (birth of my paternal grandfather) and California (finally).

My parents were Horace Oliver Parsons (1910-1972), and Iola Harold ROUSE Parsons (1912-2013).
My paternal grandfather was Nelson Marvin Parsons (1878-1958) and my paternal grandmother Helen Estelle BECK Parsons (1879-1952).
My paternal great-great-grandmother, wife of the person I am querying, was Aramintha Lamira WARNER Parsons (1839-1909).
I have found several candidates for the parents of my paternal great-great-grandfather, but I cannot prove them and I am concerned that there are other better candidates.
The name Joseph Parsons is one first name of several candidates, but there are problems, including lack of proof, of each candidate. Places of birth of the Josephs vary from England, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachussets, etc.
Nancy may very well be the first name of my great-great-grandfather’s mother, appearing in the 1950 U S Federal Census above the name of my great-great-grandfather (he was 25 and she was 55), all in the household of Ira Warner, his wife’s father, in Pleasant Valley, Marquette, Wisconsin, USA.
There’s more in my public Ancestry.com tree, _1 Parsons Family Tree.

Query Online?: Yes

Surnames: Parsons, specifically Nelson Milton Parsons, born about 1823-1826, died Dec 1 1906 in Modesto, Stanislaus County, California. The locations of his birth vary from New York (likely), Pennsylvania, Vermont, Massachussets, but with a possibility of Sweden. With a name like Parsons (Parson, Person, Persons, etc.) his most dominant ethnicity is likely English (or Irish), but my sister has some Sweden in her DNA.

If I am remembering correctly, there used to be (on your old site) a list of all folks buried in Union Cemetery. My great-grandmother was on that list, but the newer list does not include her name.

Query Message:
Background: My Great great grandparents settled in La Conner circa 1888. They were Andrew Doyle and Sarah Jane (Salaway) Doyle. I have visited their graves, old farm, and the schoolhouse where my great grandmother Katherine and her sister Mary Agnes went to school. Sarah’s obituary is listed in the Societies Obituaries but not Andrew’s. Andrew Doyle is a bit of a mystery he was born AUG 20 1845 on Prince Edward Island, in Canada and died 16 JAN 1922 at home in La Conner. Andrew “appears” in Washington State in the 1885 territorial census of Whidbey Island working as a carpenter. I have his marriage, death record, probate record, and of course census records but I am still at a loss to where he was prior to coming to Washington State. I am hoping to locate an obituary or any other information that may lead me to the names of his parents, where he was born on PEI, where he was prior to 1885, or any information about his life in La Conner. Unfortunately their daughter Mary died young before her parents and Katherine (my great grandmother) married and lived her entire life in the Wenatchee Area so we have been estranged from the La Conner Doyle story.

I recently came across a WWI Draft Registration card that informed me that Samuel J started using his middle name Jewel: The reason I know that is because he listed his brother Rufus of Madison Maine as his nearest relative.
Name Jewell Samuel McKenney
Race White
Birth Date 30 Apr 1874
Street Address P. O. Box 88
Residence Place Skagit, Washington, USA
Physical Build Slender
Height Tall
Hair Color Brown
Eye Color Light Brown
Relative Rufus McKenney

Birth Date 30 Apr 1873
Father’s Name Not Known
Mother’s Name Not Known
Burial Place Milltown
Burial Date 9-Oct-34

Now I know his parents are Samuel G McKenney and Sarah J Smith and I have an 1880 Maine census record of him (still as Samuel J McKenney). Unfortunately, between 1880 and the 1917 draft record I can find nothing.

For some time he lived in Ketchikan, Alaska, but I believe that his last years he lived in Sedro-Wooley, where he died on the first of March 1958, – 60 years old.
We know so little about him, because he seldom wrote to his relatives back in Norway, and none of the letters exists today.

Query Message:
Looking for any possible support on WA research from Tennessee. Here is what I know:

1. My great-grandfather, Albert Smalley McCollum, was mentioned in his brother’s Knox County, TN 1923 obituary as living in “Washington State”. His previous residence was in Riverside, CA. Albert moved west from TN after the death of his wife in 1909. I have census, WWI application, and city directory information from Albert’s time in CA, but I have not been able to pick up his trail in WA.

2. Albert’s father remarried after the death of his mother. Albert’s step-mother, Dollie Catherine McCollum is said to have died in Burlington, WA in 1926. A number of her children from her previous marriage (Hodge surname) also moved with her to Burlington.

I know it is a long shot, but I would appreciate any assistance in my search for Albert McCollum. I’m hoping that his move and his step-mother’s move to WA was more than coincidence. Maybe local records could help resume my research regarding this line of my ancestry. Thanks so much for any consideration given. If there is a better resource for assistance with this information, appropriate direction would be appreciated.

I am trying to locate descendants of Peter Pine Alexander, an early western pioneer.  I found paintings, on cardboard, (16″ x 20″) of he and his wife at a garage sale, and think they should be returned to the family.  They were out of their frames and were going to the trash.

I found some information about the family in a book, “Western Pioneers: The Descendants of Peter Pine Alexander”, by Edythe Fader, his Grandaughter, which says the family moved to Mt. Vernon in 1910 from Waterville, WA, and opened a furniture store and started a farm, called Hill Farm.

Could you help me in locating and contacting members of the family who might be interested in preserving these artifacts?  No charge, of course, I just think the family might want these reminders of their past.

Thank you for any help you might be able to  provide,

Richard Grill
