These are my great-grandparents, Frank H. Parmelee (1852-1925) and Lillian Jeanette (Wilson) Force Parmelee (1868-1947). ...


And these are their children, from left: Luther Hart Parmele III (1896-1985), Ida Marie (Parmelee) Redmond (1897-1967), Hester (Parmelee) Beal (1913-2000), Frances "Fanny" Pearl (Parmelee) Walters (1905-1982) and J. Wilson Parmelee (1903-1982).


This picture of Lillian, front center, and her children was taken in the 1940s. With her are J. Wilson, left, Ida, Hester, Luther and Frances "Fanny," who was my grandmother.


Frank sketched this drawing of his first wife, Alice Caris ( ? -1885), shortly after their marriage in 1880. The necklace she is wearing is now owned by a granddaughter. Frank and Alice had a daughter who died in infancy and one son, Paul (1883-1959), right.
