  • ID: I31
  • Name: Eada Belle Parrish
  • Given Name: Eada Belle
  • Surname: Parrish
  • Sex: F
  • _UID: 53BA83B907DE4D71B41A45FB69C629DB2D7C
  • Change Date: 26 JUL 2014
  • Note:
    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.
