Hi again.

PARLEE, WILLIAM M (1900 U.S. Census)
MASSACHUSETTS , MIDDLESEX, CHELMSFORD
Age: 37, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: CANA
Series: T623 Roll: 658 Page: 3

He is listed with his wife, Mary, and 7 young children, including twin sons, Harvey and Henry. And, an older couple, probably parents, Edward and Ellen, are living beside them.


PARLEE, WILLIAM M (1910 U.S. Census)
MASSACHUSETTS , MIDDLESEX, 1-PCT CHELMSFORD
Age: 49, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: CANA
Series: T624 Roll: 595 Page: 99

This year he is listed as a widower, and he has 3 teenage sons living with him. Edward and Ellen are still living beside them, and have a granddaughter living with them.
(He has a servant, named Helena, with them.)


PARLEE, WILLIAM M (1920 U.S. Census)
MASSACHUSETTS , MIDDLESEX, CHELMSFORD
Age: 56, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: CANA
Series: T625 Roll: 706 Page: 198

Ooops. If I'm reading the handwriting correctly, William has married Helena, and they have 2 young sons, and there is a step-son, 12, William SEARS, with them.


I cannot check the 1930 census, but it is available at www.ancestry.com (paid site), or there are people on the Mailing Lists at www.rootsweb.com that will do look-ups at the 1930 census.

If your father was born in 1924, it appears that he was born to his father's 2nd wife. And, it appears that your father had 7 older half-siblings. They are probably not living now.

There are about a dozen PARLEE's living in this area right now, and they are probably all descended from Edward and Ellen PARLEE.


Do you live in New England? You'd probably enjoy visiting the 2 farms. They're about 20-25 minute drive from each other.


Betty
