Mr. Graydon:

Unfortunately I have not yet started on this quarter (My Mother's) part of the family genealogy yet. Too busy with my father's line and the two lines for my wife.

I know very little about this Palen side yet.

Kenneth Parker was a young man who was my mom's baby brother. He served in WW II on the Canadian Corvettes doing the Murmansk run and contracted TB in the conditions on board.
He died in 1945 in a TB sanitorium here in Ottawa. Apparently before he left for war service he married a Pearl Palen, but that's all I know. I was 5 at the time he died. Pearl would have been a young girl in Ottawa during the 1939-1940 timeframe.

Please keep in touch should you find anything.
