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.

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.
