Name: Eada Belle Parrish
Given Name: Eada Belle
Change Date: 26 JUL 2014
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.
Birth: 13 JUL 1859 in Macomb, McDonough Co., Il
Residence: 1880 Deek Creek, Allen Co., KS
Note: She was living with her brother John and his family in the 1880 census.
