Parks Family in Mich.

I am trying to find information about my husband's family.

Father: Edward Ernest Parks born in Mich.
Grandfather: Edward L. Parks possibly married to Doris Scott. Had 4 children Edward Ernest (husband's father), Freddie, Lee, and Donna. Possible siblings of Edward L. Parks is Reeva and Lee. Descendants of these people may still be in Mich.

I have very little information and the information I have isn't confirmed since both of my husband's parents are deceased. Supposedly all siblings of Edward E. Parks are also deceased. Edward E. Parks married a second time, her name is Linda. They had at least two children, one being a son Edward. They may still be living in Mich.

It is rumored that Edward L. Parks and wife are of Native American descent.

I would appreciate any information available. Please e-mail me at scubyjoy@aol.com

Hi, well I noticed that you also posted a message about ulmer or elmer, my fathers middle name is Elmo; Arthur Elmo Parks Jr., so I wonder if there is any connection between them? My father actually has traced much of his family back and I'm sure would be happy to share the info with you if he thought there was any relation.

I have traced the Parks Family back to Barton Township, Mich. John Parks married Josephine Fetterhoff. I believe John was the youngest of 5 children at the time he was born. John Parks was born in 1883-1884, he is my husbands great-grandfather. That is as far as I've gotten. Maybe Arthur John could be related. e-mail me at scubyjoy@aol.com

Your husband's father's name was Edward Parks. He is my father's cousin.

Edward Parks married Doris Scot (only one 't'). They had four children. I have listed from oldest to youngest: Robert Parks married Joanne Livingston. They had 5 children: Robert, Barbara, Joyce, Steven, and David. Edward and Doris second child was Donna Parks and James Wood. They have 3 childre: Debbie, James, Margaret. The third child of Edward and Doris was Eddie (Edward) Parks. His first wife's name was Kay Smith. They had 2 children. I don't know their names. His second wife was Linda. Eddie and Linda had 2 children. The last of Edward and Doris was Freddie Parks. He married Rosie Price and they had no children. All of these attended my wedding in 1974. Doris Park lived in an apartment building that I managed. Feel free to contact me at htinney@aol.com
