Elizabeth Shannon 333
Hmm. Can't figure this one out. From the Fulton Patriot paper, 9-26-1923: "Died at her home, 215 S. 3rd st., Rose D. Parkhurst, wife of William Parkhurst, aged 58 years. She is survived by her husband, one son, Harold Parkhurst of Pulaski; one daughter, Lula Parkhurst of Fulton; two brothers, Louis and Frank Rogers of Rector, and two sisters, Mrs. Ida Flint of Palermo and Mrs. Frank West of Vernon Center. Funeral services will be held at the family home this afternoon; interment at New Haven." So I must have this all wrong.
