Title: Re: [nscumber] Merle M. Parker
Hi Steve:

Not a problem.

Dolores’ mother died on 7 Jul 1929 at Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York (Dolores is thought to be born about 1929 also) so she possibly was raised by her paternal Uncle, Merle and his wife.

Perhaps Mary Agnes (Fife) Parker’s death was somehow childbirth complications related?

Thanks Dave, sorry I can't help with the Fife's. I didn't locate much info on Carvel in New York either.

This is Mary Agnes, daughter of Halliburton Fife and Margaret "Birdie" Brown.  Does anyone know who the stepfather, Mr. Flynn, was?  Does anyone know more about brothers Thomas and Dick or sister Rhoda?
