Through a genealogy cousin who is directly descended from Eada's brother, Leander Hamilton Parrish, I have learned that Eada and Fred Chapin also had a daughter named Ruth. She is not listed on the 1900 census, so she must have died in childhood prior to that date. I do not know when she was born. The 1900 census for Little Rock, Pulaski Co., AR says Eada was the mother of 2 children, 1 of whom was living at the time of the census.

Burial will be in Oakland cemetery. Pallbearers will be W L Terry, L C Gring, J S Holtzman, W M Brandon, J D Williams and Lt. Eugene Balding.
