What would you like to know about Parlier, Caliornia.?( I went to school in Parlier.) I moved to go to school in Berkeley.
The Parlier library has tons of pictures of the Parlier Family and I know where their house is. Prior to it becoming a "town"
Village in was called the Parlier Ranch. There was also a Japanese Labor Camp there. My parents and our small community built the Catholic Church across from the Budhist
Temple.The beautiful red brick Menonite Church was across the Street, from the Parlier home. Parlier is not the same anymore.....there were only 2,000 people when I live there.
(1955-1965) I still go back for reunions and to visit the
cemetary. Most of the people during that time were...Mexican American, Japanese(Sun-Sai) and Armenian (white Russian)
The Parlier's had (I think) inter-married, It was a wonderful town.
Their family gatherings in the 30's show a mult-racial crowd.

Like Ruth, I also attended Parlier schools. I lived in Parlier
from 1946 to 1974. In the town of Parlier there was a gentleman named Ed Jepsen who owned a haardware store, and was a novice historian. If you wanted to know anything about Parlier you asked him. I was fortunate enough to be given a collection of his notes and can give you a brief description of the settling of Parlier by your relatives.
Isaac Newton Parlier, the founder of Parlier was born in 1840.
In 1863 he married Mary Melissa Laird, of English descent. They had a family of nine brothers and sisters. In 1874, this family joined a wagon train, with their household goods and farm tools for a trip to Modesto CA. The six older children making the trip were: Katherine, Charles Allen, Carrie, George, Nora and Joseph. They stayed in Modesto for two years, but were not satisfied and after several trips to what is now Parlier, moved there in 1876 and homesteaded 640 acres.
They gave the Santa Fe Railroad a right of way across their property, and also gave land for the Methodist Church, the Parlier Grammer School and City Park. On their trip to their new destination they camped overnight at what is now the Fresno County Courthouse Park. One day while returning from
Tollhouse (Sierra Nevadas) he cut a few whips ffrom some young fig trees. He planted them upon arrival at home. One of the cuttings later became known as the largest fig tree in CA, and after further investigation by Ripley's, became the World's largest fig tree. In 1913, the I.N. Parliers celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary under this tree with over 300 guests in attendance. In 1915, Mr. Parlier died and his funeral services were held under this tree. The tree collapsed in 1943 from soft wet ground and a high wind storm.
I could go on further, but it is getting late. Some day I will expand on this information. Any other questions feel free to e-mail me. Richard.....

Surnames: Clemons, Fletcher, Carpenter
Richard,
My father's family is from Parlier. I am just beginning research on them. Some of the names I have from that time period are Clemons (Ben, Minerva, Ruth, Meda (Berry), Mallie, Joe, Roy, America) and Fletcher (Charles, Richard, Harvey, Michael and Gary). Are you familiar with any of these names?
