In Reply to: Edward Riley Ferren and family by J.J. Ferren of 148

Hello J.J.,

I am not a relative. Saw your post and this is all I could find. I recomment you send for a copy of Edward's World War 1 application. If you know when he died in the 1920s, perhaps get a copy of his death certificate. It may show who his parents were.
