Update on Mrs. Raymond Parker Fouts.

To all of Ray friends, Just wanted to let you all know that I have heard from Rex Perry a cousin of Raymond Parker Fouts.  Rex wrote me the e-mail below. "Wayne, I thought that I would let you know that I spoke with Raymond Parker Fouts in her home in Florida. She is still suffering the effects of the stroke that she had a year or so ago and does have some heart problems. All in all, she sounded pretty good.

I've been trying to find my Grandfathers family on my Dad's side. My father said his name was Edward Everett Parker. On the 1910 and 1920 Census he is listed as Edward Parker in St. Louis, MO. It says his mother and father were born in Missouri. On my Grandmother's death Certificate in 1939 it states she is a widow and her husband's name was Everett Parker. I can't find anything else about him or his parents or siblings. I've been looking for 15+ years and have found absolutely nothing more…

"Thank you Patricia!

I'm sure it is a madhouse at the lab! The note I posted above in bold was sent by FTDNA without my prodding. It is under my "awaiting results" button. They seem to be very in tune with the anxiousness that comes with this type…"
