Another line of early Virginia Parrotts is that of John and Ruth Parrott. While information is available on their descendants, there had been none on John's origin until recently. He is the son of Robert and Catherine Daniel Parrott, which would make him a great-grandson of Richard Perrot of Middlesex Co., VA. Previously, speculations were that John was the son of Nathaniel and Penelope Irby Parrott, though there is no record of them having a son, John. Finally, John was the plantation overseer for Elisha Betts from ~1772-1775 in Lunenburg Co. Elisha was married to Mary Ann Parrott, the daughter of Lawrence Parrott of Gloucester/Northumberland counties, suggesting he could have been related to that family instead of the family of Richard of Middlesex.

With DNA results from John's descendants now on file, along with the scant historical records also available, it is now possible to determine John was the son of Robert and Catherine Daniel Parrott. Some of John & Ruth's descendants moved to Mexico, and later became prominent bankers, shippers, miners, and vintners in San Francisco/San Mateo California in the late 1800's; others moved the northwest, and others remained in the Kentuckiana area.

This is an attempt to place the information available into one place, so as to aid future research. The work presented here includes contributions from various people, particularly Harald Reksten and Cheryl Bills. However, special thanks go to Eunice Wayment Harmon for generously sharing the results of her extensive research on this family. Her search and her labor continue even though she is no longer with us.

The family settled near Carthage, Tennessee, close to the confluence of the Caney Fork and Cumberland Rivers.

Marcy, U.S. Secretary of War, 4 January 1847 (letter No. 7, letters sent, in Military Book 27, War Department Archives, Washington, D.C.)."

    The family legend is that Catherine Stuart Parrott died and that James Parrott married again. Apparently none of the children approved of the new wife. She is the reason given for William Stuart's decision to join the U. S. Army and she is also given as the reason for John's decision to join his brother, William Stuart, in Mexico as soon as he was old enough to
    leave home.

    "William Stuart enlisted in the war of 1812 in November of 1814. He was discharged after having received a wound in the Battle of New Orleans, which caused him to limp for the rest of his life."

    "Left home permanently in 1816. His actual movements are difficult to trace, but between 1816 and 1822 he lived part of the time in Cuba and he undoubtedly learned Spanish and studied dentistry in this time. In 1822 Dr. W. S. Parrott, dentist, went to Mexico. By the time he returned to the United States in August of 1826, he acquired a wife by the name of Adele Parrott. A family story says the first wife of William Stuart Parrott (ie, Adele) died and was buried at sea. This story may or may not be true.

    1848 - 1852 Returned to the United States. This was the end of his foreign service for the U.S. Government.
    1851 - Awarded $71,000.00 plus interest on his claim vs. Mexican Government. The U.S. Government paid this claim under the provisions of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
    (This is about 10 cents on the dollar as the original claim was for about $710,000.00).

    "Although John Parrott joined William Stuart Parrott in Mexico in 1829, the earliest passport for John was 1711 issued on 5 July 1832. He is described as 22 years of age, Stature 6 feet, Eyes hazel, Nose pug, Mouth large, Chin broad, Hair dark, Complexion fair, and Face round. After working with William Stuart in Mexico City, John started working as a clerk in the mercantile business that William Stuart Parrott and Samuel Talbot established in Mazatlan. Some years later in 1837 John applied to the U.S. Government to be U.S. Consul in Mazatlan. A series of letters in the National Archives, Department of State, Consul Dispatches Mazatlan, 1828-1906 lists the recommendations, qualifications, etc., that John had for the job. It was on 30 December 1837 that John Forsyth wrote John Parrott of his appointment as U.S. Consul in Mazatlan.

    "Besides his consular duties, he also had his mercantile business. In 1838 William Talbot left the firm of Parrott, Talbot and Co. The firm dissolved and John Parrott organized a new mercantile house called Parrott and Co.

    "During the two-year Mexican-American war period John went from Mexico City to Vera Cruz to New Orleans to Havana to Washington, D.C. He was not reappointed to U.S. Consul to Mazatlan until mid-1848.

    "John's resignation as U.S. Consul in Mazatlan was submitted to the department of State on 9 April 1850 and later that same month he left for San Francisco. In the next two years, John bounced back and forth between San Francisco and Guadalajara and paid two visits to Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, in 1851 a fire leveled three of the buildings that he owned in San Francisco; consequently, he decided to build a fireproof granite building."

    San Francisco Bulletin dated 31 March 1884 (obituary)
    "The Banker [Mr. Parrott] for a long time had disappeared from Montgomery Street, where his face was once so familiar. His declining years have been spent in the quiet of domestic life. Mr. Parrott was a pioneer of pioneers. He was one of the few Argonauts who brought money with him . . . His bank was one of the strongest institutions in San Francisco. It is withstood all the storms unshaken.

    "Mr. Parrott belonged to a class of conservative bankers. He preferred that his money should remain in his vaults to be loaned out on weak security. There was no amount of interest that could tempt him. Only one case of a loan on doubtful collateral was quoted, and that was on a lot of hams which subsequently spoiled. 'No more hams' was the usual rejoiner when paper not gilt-edged was ever afterwards presented to the veteran financier . . ."

    "In 1845 Captain Andre Castillero formed the New Almaden Company and John Parrott bought on Barra, 1/24th ownership in the mine. By the end of 1861 he had acquired another Barra from James Alexander Forbes. This gave Parrott 1/12th of the ownership, the additional Barra cost Parrott some $34,000. Parrott must have been very proud of the mine as he gave one of his children the middle name of Almaden (Grace Almaden Parrott 1860-1945)."

    From The Nob Hill Gazette, May 1982, by J. Roger Jobson.

    John Parrott: Portrait of a Pioneer

    Baywood was the name John Parrott chose for his 450-acre San Mateo estate. Amid rolling hills, native oak and bay trees, this wealthy financier and shipping magnate built in 1868 a home for his wife, nine children, as staff of 10, plus gardeners and a dozen or more Chinese laborers.

    The vast reaches of Baywood were once included in the great Rancho de las Pulgas, a Spanish grant to that distinguished branch of the Arguello family which gave two governors to California 'before the Gringo came.'

    The house was a modified Queen Anne Victorian design with finials rising from a balustrade that swept along the length of the second floor. Th unusually symmetrical architecture and the elegant but restrained interior furnishings made an impression as dignified as was the owner himself.

    Although the family also had an impressive residence in the city, it was at Baywood amid landscaped gardens and surrounded by his children that Parrott, then aged 57, lived out the active and well-ordered routine of his life.

    This gracious existence was the culmination of 40 years of adventure, work and shrewd investment.

    Tennessee born, John Parrott at age 18 joined his brother's mercantile and importing business at Mexico City. His passport at that time describes him as 'six feet tall, hazel eyes, large mouth, round face and fair of complexion.' The business was successful and flourished. He was appointed United States Consul at Mazatlan from 1837 to 1846 and reappointed in 1848 until his resignation and move to San Francisco in 1850.

    After leaving Mexico, but before settling permanently in San Francisco, 42-year-old Parrott traveled to Mobile, Alabama. There he met and married 24-year-old Abby Meaher. Miss Meaher was reluctant to marry at first and so Parrott, reminiscent of his years in Mexico, engaged musicians to serenade her in front of the hotel where she and her family were staying.

    It is true that many of the pioneers to California were men of restricted means and education. Some came to seek their fortune, others to make a fresh start, or in some cases to escape capture and punishment by the law of the land. None of this can be said of Parrott, however, who by 1849 with his California interests well-established from previous visits, arrived in San Francisco with a fortune. He had already proven to be a man of learning and astute business accumen.

    Within a few years, Parrott established a banking exchange to purchase gold dust and bullion that adventurous men were digging from the hills and panning from the Sierra streams. A partner in this adventure was W.B. Comstock, the man whose name lives in the annals of the West as the famed Comstock Lode.

    The mid-nineteenth century on the Pacific Coast was a period of expanding commerce. California, no longer restricted by Spanish and Mexican jurisdictions, began to attract the shipping attention of the world. A notable characteristic of Parrott was his ability to foresee and adapt to the times. Soon sailing vessels owned or chartered by the Parrott Company sailed the trade routes: quicksilver to Hong Kong, wheat to Liverpool, rice and spices from the Orient and coffee from Central and South America.

    Meanwhile, John and Abby Parrott's nine children grew, attended school'96 here, in England and in France'96 traveled abroad, married, participated in the social and cultural life of the city, continued their father's business interests and had children of their own.

    Today's descendants of the private and conservative Parrotts continue to be a force in the Bay Area where their lives thread through and contribute richly to the tapestry of the city, giving it continuity, color and durability.

    William G. Parrott heads the Parrott Estate Company and is a member of the Board of Directors of the Parrott Ranch Company. William and his poised and stately wife Mary have three sons who represent the fifth generation.

    A sampling of other fifth generation Parrott descendants are: Joseph A. Donahoe, V, an active and urbane member of the city's cultural and social life, a graduate student in viticulture at the University of California, Davis, and a member of the governing body of the University of San Francisco's annual symposium; Marc de Tristan, Jr., a graduate of Harvard's School of Business, charity fund-raiser and treasurer of the Nob Hill Association; Richard Thieriot, Editor and Publisher of the San Francisco Chronicle, and his brother Christopher, Vice-President of Western Communication, Inc.; Christian de Guigne, IV, a partner with his brother Charles in the Chateau Senejac Vineyards at Haut Medoc in France, part owner of the New York based travel firm, Ports of Call, and a leading authority in antique arms.

    In her definitive biography of her illustrious ancestor, Barbara Donohoe Jostes tells of the death in 1884 at the age of 73 of John Parrott. 'His had been an active life, spanning the years of early trade on the West Coast of Mexico and the Gold Rush. His was the age of sail, the Pony Express, the Overland Mail, the Telegraph, the first steam ships and the building of the Transcontinental Railroad.

    'He experienced the devastating fires in the early years of San Francisco, the violent days that brought into being the Vigilantes, and survived the panics in the banking world. Friend of many, exacting himself and others, John Parrott contributed to the advancement of the state and to the city by choice.'

    ============
    John lived in Mexico for a number of years before settling in CA.

    John had 2 illigimate children while living in Mexico, who he later brought to the US. He and Abigal had 8 children.

    John was a US Consul in Mexico. He became a millionaire, was president of a bank and owned a lot of land. There is a picture of him on the San Francisco Public Library website as well as pictures of his San Mateo mansion.

    =================
    < >
    The Parrott family of San Francisco are perhaps the most exclusive people in that city. Mr. John Parrott, the headof the house, who has been dead for several years, was a very wealthy banker and lived, during his early life, in Mexico. There he married a beautiful Mexican girl, but in later years, after a family had come to them, it was whispered that there was some flaw in the ceremony which them one. Mr. Parrott was devotedly found, however, of his children and adopted them legally. The daughter of this marriage married a Scotch physician and had three children, two sons and a daughter. When Mr. Parrott married his second wife those children very very fond of calling her grandmamma, but the lady, with a stern determination that they should understand exactly the relationship they occupied toward her, was prone to resent the endearment.

    San Mateo's John Parrott family
    March 16, 2009, 12:00 AM By Darold Fredricks

    Born in 1811 in Virginia, John Parrott had it all when he purchased the 260-acre Captain Macondray estate west of Ed Taylor's San Mateo House site on El Camino Real for $30,000.

    Macondray called his place Brookside, but Parrott changed it to Bayside. The San Mateo Creek, with numerous Bay trees alongside it, formed the northern boundary of the property. John immediately began remodeling the old Macondray house that was on the property and, by 1868, he had created a Second Empire-style house that he and wife Abby could enjoy in the summer when they ventured down from San Francisco.

    John Parrott had been the U.S. Consul at Mazatlan, Mexico at the height of the Mexican American War in the 1840s. In this role, he corresponded with important national leaders such as James Buchanan and Daniel Webster, as well as California leaders such as Thomas Larkin.

    These contacts proved valuable later when Parrott moved to San Francisco and started a financial and shipping empire that made him very rich. Commerce and banking became Parrott's life. He built a legendary "fire proof" business building at Montgomery and California streets out of granite imported from China. In 1853, he married Abby Eastman Maher in Mobile, Ala. and settled at their home on Rincon Hill in San Francisco.

    In the summers, the Parrotts attended the Catholic Church in San Mateo. They were very conservative people, not the typical big party givers that one associates with the wealthy people on the Peninsula. When in residence there, Parrott often commuted to and from San Francisco by train. The arrival of the train often became a big event in the lives of the locals who would gather on Main Street to observe the comings and goings of the well-to-do.

    Parrott's family grew to include six daughters and one son.

    < >

    John Parrott Sr. died in 1884 at age 74. His wife Abby died in 1917 at age 89. They are buried at St. John's Cemetery.

    Their child was:

       35 F    i. Mamie Parrott was born on 22 Jul 1834 in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, México and died on 14 Sep 1911 in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England at age 77.

    John married Abbigail Eastman Meagher, daughter of James Meagher and Susan Flanders Millay, on 23 Feb 1853 in Mobile, Alabama. Abbigail was born on 7 Jun 1829 in Whitefield, Lincoln Co., Maine and died on 6 Oct 1917 in San Mateo, San Mateo Co., California at age 88.

    Marriage Notes: Stately Mansion Is Destroyed by Early Sunday Morning Blaze

    Flames Claim Parrott Home
    The old residence of John and Abby Parrott, which was destroyed early yesterday morning in a fire believed to have started through defective wiring.

    THE HISTORIC old Parrott residence on Parrott Drive, Baywood Park, was destroyed by fire early yesterday morning. Although timely arrival of the San Mateo fire department enabled the firemen to bring the blaze under control, the beautiful old manssion, built in 1860, was damaged beyond the point of repair.

    In recent months the old house has been preserved by the Baywood Park Company as an attractive landmark in conjunction with the subdivision of the big Parrott estate of 375 acres. A caretaker and his family resided in the rear part of the home, but there was no one in the hosue at 2 o'clock yesterday morning when the flames were discovered. The caretaker's family is now vacationing in Monterey and the man himself spent Saturday night in San Francisco. Considerable property belonging to the family was destroyed or badly damaged.

    It is believed that the fire was started by defective wiring. The wood in the house was so seasoned that the slightest spark could have started the blaze. The theory that it was of incendiary origin was broken down when firemen found all doors and windows in place securely locked, just as they hada been left by the caretaker when he departed on Saturday afternoon.

    The old Parrott home was for years a show, placed of the peninsula. It was built 68 years ago by the late John and Abby Parrott, and for nearly 25 years was the center of social activity in the bay region. In recent years it was unoccupied, except by the caretaker. Only a short time ago the former servants' quarters went up in smoke, that fire having been started apparently by tramps who slept in the place. Several years ago the old stables and barns went up in smoke, destroying many carriages and vehicles of ancient vintage.

    John Williams, president of the Baywood Part Company, today expressed regret that the old place had burned.

    "We had preserved the old Parrott mansion as a relic of former days and it blended well with the aristochratic layout of Baywood Park," said Wililams. "Recently we used it for a builders' exhibit and everyone who entered the place was impressed with its stately appearance."

    The Man Who Built Miravalle - Falcon Crest
    Jourdan George Myers
    Deer Park, California 1987


    Entered English language school in Massachusetts when he was ten years of age.

    Then was educated in Paris. Tiburcio came to San Francisco at age twenty-two to live with his father and stepmother.

    The St. Helena Star on 15 May 1885 reports: "Tiburcio Parrott and Fritz Beringer left Friday morning behind a handsome four-in-hand driven by Judge Elgin for a trip to the Sulphur Bank Mine in which property Mr. Parrott is largely interested . . ."

    Due to the increasing cost of operation and the declining price of quicksilver, the Sulphur Bank Mine declared bankruptcy in 1883. The final footnote of the operation by Tiburcio Parrott is found in an item in the Napa Register of 7 September 1883: "On the 17th inst. A sale of delinquent stock in Sulphur Bank quicksilver mine of Lake County, will take place in San Francisco at the assessment being twenty-five cents per share. D.O. Mills holds about $4,000 and John Parrott $3,500 worth of the delinquent stock, but the bulk of the stock belongs to Tiburcio Parrott."

    Built Miravalle (used as the setting for Falcon Crest TV series) in 1885.

    the St. Helena Star sate 4 September 1885 describes the house in construction and the property at that time:
    Something less than a year ago, the well-known Forbes place, situated on Spring Mountain, south of the reservoir of the St. Helena Water Works, was purchased by Tiburcio Parrott, a prominent banker of San Francisco, and with the transfer of title commence a system of improvements on this property which has in a few short months changed it almost beyond recognition. Nearly two weeks ago we drove over this fine estate in company with Mr. Parrott, and on every hand our eyes rested on evidences of the wonderful changes accomplished by the well-directed expenditure of abundant means.

    ===
    In 1885, its very first year, the parrot Winery produced some 8,300 gallons of wine according to "Vintage of 1885" report published in the St. Helena Star on 20 November 1885. This was quite a respectable beginning for the winery which was to produce some very fine and famous wines. Leon D. Adams writes in The Wines of America, "A duplicate of the Rhine House was built by their uphill neighbor, Tiburcio Parrott. Parrott grew grapes for the Beringers on his great estate, which he called 'Miravalle' for it view of the [Napa] valley. He also made his own wines, and the late Almond R. Morrow once told me that a Miravalle claret called 'Margaux' was the greatest California wine produced before Prohibition."

He entertained with a lavish hand, visitor from California, from all nations and was the friend of the rich and the poor. The people of St. Helena were shocking Monday morning upon hearing that Tiburcio Parrott had passed away.

    Although Mr. Parrott had been in ill health for several months, and for the past two years had been troubled at times with pains in the pit of his stomach, no one dreamed of his being in any immediate danger of death. Sunday night he was taken for worse and rapidly failed, dying at 7:05 the next morning [5 November 1894], the cause being cancer of the stomach. . . Since his marriage Villa Parrott was been open to all comers.

    ======================
    REST CAME SOON.
    Tiburcio Parrott Passes Away Suddenly
    IN HIS ST. HELENA HOME.
    A Prince of Good Fellows Is No More.
    GENEROUS EVEN TO A FAULT.
    Death Visits When Least Expected at the Chateau de Mira-Valle in Napa County.


    Tiburcio Parrott died rather suddenly yesterday morning at the Chateau de Mira-Valle, his country home near St. Helena. The news of his death was conveyed to his family in this city by telegraph, which simply stated that he died.

    About a month ago Mr. Parrott began to complain of pains and trouble in his digestive organs, but as no alarming symptoms showed themselves little attention was given the disorder. "It is only an attack of indigestion," he would say, and then relying on a splendid constitution to carry him through he neglected to undergo treatment. Shortly before midnight Sunday he was taken suddenly with pains in the stomach. The pain grew into agony with great rapidity, and very soon the sick man was completely prostrated. He lived but a few hours, as the end came early in the morning.

    Mrs. Parrott was at his bedside at the time. Mrs. A.M. Parrott, stepmother of the deceased, went to St. Helena on the first train yesterday, before the dispatch announcing Mr. Parrott.s unexpected taking off was received in this city.

    Mr. Parrott was about 54 years of age. He was the son of the late John Parrott, the pioneer banker, who for many years was a leading man in the mercantile community. Tiburcio was born in Mexico, and when of an age to leave home he went to school at Jamaica Plains, near Boston. In later years he finished his education in Europe, where he acquired knowledge of French and Italian in addition to Spanish and English, in which he was already well read.

    Returning to America, he was placed in a position in the firm of William T. Coleman & Co. in New York. This was in 1860. Young Parrott did not make much of a success as a sedate clerk, being of a restless dispostion and rather inclined to enjoying the good things of life. So he was brought by his father in 1862 to San Francisco.

    Immediately on his arrival here went into his father's banking-house, then conducted as Parrott & Co.

    Later on he withdrew from that firm and formed the house of Alson & Co., together with the late William F. Babcock, about 1864. For six years he was a member of the Alsop & Co., but in December, 1869, the firm merged its business into that of Parrott & Co., which is still in existence, although Tiburcio Parrott had no interest in it for ten years past.

    Shortly after the death of his father, John Parrott, Tiburcio withdrew from city life and took up his residence at Chateu de Mira-Valle in Napa County. And for a decade now the bons vivants missed his genial company. Meanwhile he was engrossed in producing high-grade wine which became a fad of his. He studied works on wine-making and improved his knowledge and skill in the alluring industry, so that it is said of him he could indentify wine from from almost every vineyard in California by smell or taste.

    Abour five years ago Mr. Parrott married Miss Tuffy of Carson City, Nev., whose father has been a prominent man in Nevada. There was no issue of this union.

    In his younger days Tiburcio Parrott was noted for his profuse liberality and generosity. To a fault, his friends declare, he was generous. And though he retired to his ranch for a quiet life none of this characteristic forsook him, for the Parrott house was widely known though its princely host. This is brought out very vividly in the deciatory verse of a book by Adolphe Flamant to Mr. Parrott as follows:

    Un bon garçon permi les princes,
    Et le prince des bons garçons.

    A good fellow among princes, and a prince of good fellows.

    Indeed it is said of him that he spnt over a million in the very abandon of hospitality and pleasures with his friends.

    Truly he lost fortunes in mining speculations. The Herman mine cost him an immense sum of money, and he also lost on his Guerneville quicksilver mines. These reverses, with extravagance in entertaining Bohemian friends and in social channels, reduced his wealth given him by his father to a comparatively nominal amount.

    To his liberal patronage Tojetil, the painter, was deeply indebted. Mr. Parrott was a patron of art, as local artists attest. It was he who sent Toby Rosenthall to Munich, there to be educated in painting. While Rosenthal was in Munich Parrott ordered him to paint Elaine, a picture which has since become famous. The artist produced the picture, but Mrs. Johnson saw it in Munich and became its owner. It would have been Parrott's, only the painter raised the price over that already accepted, and his patron was so annoyed he fell out with Rosenthal. Tavernier and others of the old-time San Francisco artists looked upon Parrott as a benefactor.

    Cancer of the stomach was the cause of Mr. Parrott's death.

    No arrangements have as yet been made for the funeral.

The Husing store now sat on the corner of B Street and Third Avenue.

    "The Ben Franklin Hotel was built on this site in 1927. The de Guignes named the property "Minne-haha" after Katherine's nickname "Minnie." De Guigne was the co-founder of the Stauffer Chemical Company and served as president. He also was a partner with C. E. Whitney, John Stauffer, and August H. Schilling when the Leslie Salt Company was formed. After the 1906 earthquake damaged their Catholic Church, the members met in the large stable that the de Guignes had on their property."

    MARRIAGE OF JOHN PARROTT, JR, AND MISS DONOHOE.


    UNION OF MEMBERS OF TWO WEALTHY SAN FRANCISCO FAMILIES-- IMPRESSIVE CATHOLIC CEREMONIES -- THE FLOWER, THE MUSIC, AND THE PRESENTS IN DETAIL

    From the San Francisco Examiner, April 20.

    A more notable event than has marked the social history of San Francisco for many years was the wedding of Miss Mary Donohoe and John Parrott, Jr., yesterday morning at 11 o'clock, at St. Ignatius Church, corner of Van Ness-avenue and Hayes-street. The groom is a son of John Parrott, the retired millionaire banker, is a native of San Francisco, and is 23 years of age. The bride is an only daughter of Joseph Donohoe, of the banking firm of Donohoe, Kelly & Co., and is also a native of this city. She is a decided brunette, and is said to be one of the most beautiful women in San Francisco. Long befoe the hour the spacious steps of the sacred edifice was thronged with a surging crowd of people of various classes, each eager to do honor to the scions of two pioneer families, whose beneficient deeds lingered in the minds of all. Women and children crowed about, and many were the stories told of kind acts performed by the bride. It seemed as though she had used her wealth but to lend assistance to the needy and look out for the wants of the poor. In the vestibule on either side were tropical greens of the most varied kinds and gorgeous shapes. The main altar was aglow with 300 candles, and the festoons of choicest flowers were innumerable. Six snow-white doves, each bearing in its beak a bouquet of rare white exotics, with "M" - "J" wrought in violets, were a beautiful feature. On the Gospel side was suspended a magnificent floral anchor, and a cross hung from the Epistle side, while between the two, in Tojetti's famous painting of "St. Ignatius's Glorification in Heaven," the patron saint appeared with outstretched arms. The side altars of St. Joseph, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Sacred Heart, St. Francis, and St. Aloysius were each elegantly and appropriately decorated. Over the different doorways were wreaths of smilax, dotted with camellias, while in numerous alcoves and over the railings delicate ferns and conservatory greens were wound.

    Before 11 o'clock the reserved pews were filled, and only the arrival of the bridal party remained to complete the grand picture. The families arrived at 10:45 o'clock and took seats in the front pews. At this time, the orchestra, composed of 50 leading muscians, under the direction of Louis Homeler, rendered a selection, "L'Arlesienne," (Bizet,) in excellent style. The music, most of it written for the occasion, was thoughout, the grandest ever heard in San Francisco. Precisely at 11 the bridal party made its appearance in the following order: Joseph Donohoe, Jr., the groom's best man, followed by the ushers, Messrs. Murphy, Angier, Beck, Bowie, Shelden, Wheeler, Greenway, and Twiggs. Then came six bridesmaids, two by two. These were Miss Isabella Parrott with Miss Mary O'Connor, of San Rafael; Miss May Parrott with Miss Fannie Doyle, of Menlo, and Miss Christian Parrott with Miss Daisy Casserly. After these came the bride, leaning upon the arm of her father. The bridal robe was the very perfection of elegance, and was composed of the most magnificent satin of a rich creamy tint. The skirt was entirely plain, with the exception of a narrow box-plaiting of the same around the train, and at the base of the front square-cut tabo fell over the fine knife-plaiting. The body, which was cut pointed in front, was long-sleeved and high-necked, with a corsage bouquet of orange blossoms. Over the skirt was most artistically draped an abundance of wide flouncing of old family lace, round point, and point de Venice mixed. Dependent from the coiffure and fastened with a diamond star was a long tuile veil, which entirely manted the figure. A necklace and bracelets of pearls completed the handsome toilet.

    Mrs. Donohoe was costumed in a hellotrope satin, elaborately draped in rich blank lace, festooned over the front and sides, and falling in a profusion of soft puffs in the back and down the train. Magnificent diamond jewels added much to the toilet. The brides-maids were dressed alike,, in short suits of white surah satin. The wore large white chip hats, trimmed with white flowers, long Sara Bernhardt gloves of undressed kid, and black satin slippers with black silk hose. Each young lady carried a little muff composed of flowers and ribbons.

    As they entered the orchestra struck up a march, "Raff Suite," which was continued during the movements of the party toward the chancel. When they reached the altar railing the gentlemen separated, as did the ladies also, and the bride and and groome seated themselves upon a gorgeous cushion of green velvet. As the bridal group moved up the aisle, the Most Rev. Archbishop Alemancy, attended by a numerous retinue of priests and 85 acolytes, made his appearance. Immediately before performing the marriage proper, his Grace was vested with the Pontifical robes. Father A. Raggio, assisted by Father Imoda, acted as master of ceremonies.

    After an earnest exhortation by the Archbishop, the bride and grooom, assisted by D.J. Murphey and Tiburcio Parrott, entered the Chanel, were received by the officiator, and the impressive marriage ritual of the Catholic Church was rendered. His Grace was assisted by the Rev. Father Kenna, President of St. Ignatius College, as Deacon, and the Rev. Father Pinasco, President of Santa Clara College, as Sub-Deacon. Seated in the sanctuary were the Rev. Dr. Byrne, of Australia; The Rev. Drs. Comerford and King, of Oakland, and the Rev. Fathers Reardon, Isola, Brunengo, Demasini, Dossola, Galliano, Kelly, Maraschi, Messae, Neri, Pollano, Prelato, Raffo, Sullivan, and Tadini, of the Society of Jesus. The ceremony occupied about 30 minutes. After Paternoster the newly married coupled entered the sanctuary, and, kneeling before his Grace, received a particular blessing, and a prayer was said for their future welfare.

    After this impressive feature the chorus, consisting of Signors Parolini and Muller and Messrs. Hughes, A.H. Sheere, C.E. Floyd, J. De Fremery, Frederick J. Bulton, C. Waite, and J.H. Carleton, sang a "Nuptial Ode," written by A.A. Wheeler, set to music by Edgar E. Kelly, and dedicated to the groom. Following this the Rev. Aloysius Varsi solemnized the marriage mass, "Missa Pro Sponsalibus." At the beginning Rossini's "Gloria" was rendered by the Orchestra, after which "O Salutaris," a baritone solo composed expressively for the occassion by Louis Homeir, was sung by Herr Jacob Muller. After the offertory, the soft music of Bizet's adagietto, "Suite Arlesienne," was given. St. Saen's "Inviolata," a tenor solo by C.P. Hughes, was touchingly rendered during the singing of mass. At the end the reverend Archbishop gave a general blessing to the whole assemblage, after which the bridal party left its place. As it passed down the aisle Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" was pealed forth, and the large crowd of people withdrew.

    The newley married pair and a number of friends were driven to the residence of the bride's parents, No. 526 Harrison-street. The reception party consisted, besides Mr. and Mrs. Parrott Jr., of Mr. and Mrs. Donohoe, Mrs. Parrott Sr., Mrs. De Guigne, Misses Isabel, Mary, and Christian Parrott, Mary O'Conner, Fanny Doyle, and Daisy Casserly. The spacious residence, which was darkened and lit by gas, was lavishly decorated and was a perfect grove of flowering and tropical plants. The main parlor, in which the reception was held, was a gorgeous scene of flowers and twining vines. The floral decorations were disposed in such a manner as to show to great advantage the magnificent collection of paintings, statuary, and other articles of virtu arranged about. In the bay window, where the happy couple took their position, the profusion of palms and variegated pot plants was a noticeable feature. At the top, above a double heart of tuberoses, and white camelias, was the motto, "Ad Multas Annos," in choicest flowers, and on each side of a floral true lover's knot was a snow white dove, while below all a garland of rare greens and blossoms hung. On a large mirror in the background was a gracefully wrought monogram, "M.J." and to complete the picture, in each corner of the window was a harp compsed of beautiful flowers. Prominent among the floral offerings was one from M. Forest, late French Consul for this city, a pyramind of 80 white camelias, presenting a most exquisite appearance. Others equally beautiful were received from Mr. and Mrs. Eugene P. Murphy, Mr. and Mrs. Alphonso L. Pinart, Miss Lander, Judge R.F Morrison, the Misses Eyre, Mr. and Mrs. M.J. Rodrigue, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel M. Wilson, Inez Fabbri-Muller, Mr. and Mrs. J.G. Kittle, Mrs. W.S. Keyes, and Mrs. Alfred Wheeler. The newel post in the stairwell was covered with greens and calla lillies, and the hall was a perfect picture of the tropics, bananas, lime trees in bearing, bergonias, ferns, and cactus being prominent. The back parlors, the library, reading rooms, and dining room were also decorated profusely. At the proper hour a dèjeuner, handsome, artistic, and bounteous, was served. During the reception, which lasted from 1 o'clock to 3, an orchestra under Mr. Homeier rendered some charming selections. At the latter hour, after wishing a the happy couple all the blessings of a long and happy life, the guests began to depart.

    About 4 o'clock the bride and groom left the house amid a shower of rice, and entering the carriage, over which a tiny satin slipper was thrown, drove to the speciaal car that was to convey them to Menlo Park. The bridal traveling dress consisted of an olive-bronze cashmere trimmed with satin and a hat to match. After a stay at Menlo Park, Mr. and Mrs. Parrott, Jr., will proceed to New York City; from thence they will sail on May 17 for Europe. They will make a tour of the Continent for about two years, after which they will return to San Francisco, which will be their permanent residence.

    The bridal presents were a collection such as has seldom been seen in this city. Among the many were a coffee set of the most unique and beautiful design, the cups being in the shape of pond lillies, and the ware made in the tints of the natural flower. This is a gift from Mrs. Hoguet, a relative of the family, who lives in New-York. Another coffee set was of Royal Worcester ware, setn by Mr. and Mrs. S.F. Hooper, of Sonoma; a card receiver of gold and silver from J.D. Murphy, Jr.; a solid gold dish was a gift from Mr. and Mrs. Louis Parrott; John Parrott, Sr., presented a silver tea set of repousse; a gold-lined silver berry-dish and spoon, set by Mr. and Mrs. L. Pickering; a gold and silver pitcher service and two goblets; by P.D. Donahue; Mr. and Mrs. D.O. Mijle sent from New-York a fruit dish of gold and silver; J.W.

Kelly; an arrow with the tip of pearls and brilliants, Edward Kelly; a ring with a cat's eye stone surrounded with diamonds, Miss Rose Barreda.

    Among the gifts of the immediate family of the bride was one from her eldest brother, a lace-pin of diamonds and a glove buttoner of gold; from her youngest brother two handsome lace-pins. The gift of Mrs. Joseph A. Donohoe, to her daughter was alace pin, holding three magnificent diamond stones. The gifts from Jospeph A. Donohoe was a complete set of silver spoons and forks of various sizes, and a deed of a 50-vara lot in the vicinity of Sacramento and Gough streets. The bridegroom's present to his lovely young bride was a superb necklace and cross of diamonds.

    A peculiar and interesting coincidence in this notable affair is that both parties are natives of San Francisco, have lived continously within one block of each other, and always in the same houses from which they parted to be joined together in the holy bonds of matrimony.

    General Notes: Commuted.- By a telegram from Col. E. Polk Johnson, Wednesday, as we learn that the President commuted the sentence of John W. Parrott, under sentence of death in Arkansas for murder. In his order the President says: "I am not quite willing to pardon absolutely this convict, after his conviction of murder and after a denial of a motion for a new trial, based substantially upon all the papers now before me. I am entirely satisfied that he ought not to suffer the extreme penalty of the law, but I do not think that when he killed the Elder McAdams he was so 'driven to the wall' by the attack of his assailant as to clearly excuse the taking of life. I do not think the convict invited the attack, but in considering the application for his pardon I can not overlook the fact that he armed himself and went to the place where the man was who had threatened to kill him before night. In the belief that the prisoner should be punished for the part he took in this homicide and that he is guilty of a crime much less than murder, I have determined to commute his sentence to imprisonment at hard labor for the term of five years." Parrott was formerly of this county and is a brother of Mrs. Peter Hamton, who was almost driven crazy by suspense.

    THANKS OF INSANE MAN.
    Peyton Parrott Grateful for Being Declared a Lunatic.
    Harviey R. Stout, justice of the peace, had a strange experience yesterday with Peyton Parrott, a supposed Lunatic.

    Mrs. Parrott had sworn that her husband was a fit subject for treatment at the Insane hospital. Justice Stout was to have charge of the sanity commission. Parrott went to him to thank him.

    "I know of my condition as well as you do," said Parrott. "I have felt this thing coming on me for a year or more, and I am grateful that you are going to have me treated."

    Parrott appeared to be rational, though he said he was not always so and that he believed he needed treatment.

    The Death of Berry Parrott's Grandfather

    Mr. & Mrs. Parrott lived in Tazewell, Tennessee, during the Civil War days. Mrs. Parrott was expecting a baby. Her husband had joined the Union Army and he knew about what time the baby was expected. He asked the officers if he might get off and come home to see about his wife, as she was alone. They let him go home.

    As he came near his home the Rebels met him. They shot and killed him. They took his body to his house, opened the door, and threw his body in, nearly on his wife.

    This upset her so that she went into labor and she had her baby that very day. The baby was a boy and was the father of Berry Parrott.

    General Notes: From Wikipedia:

    "Nuttall was born at San Francisco in 1857 to Dr. Robert Kennedy Nuttall and Magdalena Parrott. She specialised in pre-Columbian Mesoamerican manuscripts and the pre-Aztec culture in Mexico. She traced the Mixtec codex now called the Codex Zouche-Nuttall and wrote the introduction to its first facsimile publication.

    "She was educated in France, Germany, and Italy, and at Bedford College, London. She first came into prominence on the publication of her work on the "Terra Cotta Heads of Teotihuacan" in the American Journal of Archaeology (1886). She was appointed Special Assistant of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard, and was named Honorary Professor of Archaeology at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico.

    "She was the basis for D.H. Lawrence's character Mrs. Norris in his novel The Plumed Serpent."

    =============
    "Zelia Maria Magdalena Nuttall was born to an Irish father, Dr. Robert Kennedy Nuttall, and a Mexican-American mother, Magdalena Parrott Nuttall, in San Francisco on September 6, 1857. Raised in Europe, Nuttall acquired her education in France, Germany, Italy, and England, where she studied at Bedford College, London. In 1876 when Zelia was nineteen, the Nuttall family returned to San Francisco. Four years later, she married French anthropologist Alphonse Louis Pinart, whom she lived with in the West Indies, France, and Spain until 1882 when they returned to San Francisco and their only child Nadine was born. The Pinarts separated in 1884 and were divorced in 1888.

    "Nuttall first went to Mexico for five months in 1884 with her mother, younger brother, sister, and daughter. During this time she worked for the National Museum and collected terracotta heads from San Juan Teotihuacan. After living in Baltimore for a year, she moved to Dresden, Germany, where she resided until 1899. During this period she made trips to California, Europe, and Russia. With the support of Curator F. W. Putnam, Nuttall was an Honorary Assistant in Mexican Archaeology at the Peabody Museum from 1886 until her death in 1933. In 1888 her work, "Standard or Head-Dress? An Historical Essay on a Relic of Ancient Mexico" was published as the first monograph in the first volume of the Peabody Museum Papers series. In 1902 Nuttall settled permanently in Mexico and twice visited the ruins of Yucatan. During the same year she purchased her home, Casa Alvarado, where she pursued her archaeological studies as well as her interests in Mexican gardens and botany.

    "Much of her work investigated early manuscripts. In 1890 in the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale in Florence she re-discovered the Codex Magliabecchiano XIII.3 which she was able to publish in 1903 as "The Book of the Life of the Ancient Mexicans" (University of California). Nuttall was responsible for tracing the Zapotecan manuscript from the monastery of San Marco in Florence to its owner of the time, Lord Zouche of Hayworth. This manuscript then became known as the Codex Nuttall and was published as such in 1902 by the Peabody Museum. She continued to uncover similar manuscripts in the archives of Mexico, New York, and England.

    "Nuttall was a pioneering figure in her recognition of archaic (pre-Aztec) culture in Mexico and became an authority on the "sun cult" in ancient Mesoamerica and Peru. Her work "A Penitential Rite of the Ancient Mexicans" was published as the seventh monograph in the first volume of the Peabody Museum Papers series in 1904. She was a prolific writer and published many monographs, often using her knowledge of contemporary texts to buttress her work on archaeological findings. Nuttall died at Casa Alvarado, Coyoacan, Mexico, on April 12, 1933, an esteemed member of countless academic societies, an honorary Professor of Anthropology at the National Museum of Mexico, and an award-winning scholar.

    ===============
    A San Francisco native, Nuttall was educated in Europe. In 1867, she returned to San Francisco and married French anthropologist Alphonse Louis Pinart (whose papers are in the Bancroft collections). They divorced in 1888 and Nuttall pursued a scholarly career in Mexican archaeology. She was the first anthropologist to recognize the historical value of ancient codices. Prominent among the Mexican codices she discovered and studied were the Codex Nuttall and the Codex Magliabecchiano. She served the nascent department as Field Director of the Crocker-Reid Researches in Mexico. Nuttall was the first anthropologist to recognize the historical value of ancient codices.

    =====================
    From Encyclopaedia Britannica:


    "Zelia Maria Magdalena Nuttall, (born Sept. 6, 1857, San Francisco, Calif., U.S.'97died April 12, 1933, Coyoacán, Mex.), American archaeologist, remembered for her extensive investigations of ancient Mexico.

    "Nuttall was the daughter of a physician. Through her mother's Mexican ancestry she had early developed an interest in that country, and on a visit there in 1884 she studied some archaeological artifacts. Her paper on the small terra-cotta heads found at Teotihuacan was published in 1886 in the American Journal of Archaeology. The paper attracted attention in scholarly circles and won her appointment as honorary special assistant in Mexican archaeology at Harvard University's Peabody Museum and, the next year, a fellowship in the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

    "From 1886 to 1899 Nuttall lived in Europe, headquartered in Dresden, Germany, but traveling widely for study and to attend scholarly congresses. The results of her wide-ranging investigations were published in The Fundamental Principles of Old and New World Civilizations (1901), in which she traced cultural parallels between ancient Middle Eastern and American civilizations and hypothesized that culture may have been carried to the Western Hemisphere by Phoenician explorers; in Codex Nuttall (1902), a facsimile of a pictographic historical record of ancient Mexico that she had discovered in a private library in England; and in The Book of the Life of the Ancient Mexicans (1903), which printed in facsimile the Codex Magliabecchiano, a similar pictographic work that she had found in Florence.

    "After a brief stay in the United States in 1899'961902, she settled in the Casa Alvarado in Coyoacán, a suburb of Mexico City. There she continued her investigations. In 1904 she was field director of the Reid-Crocker archaeological mission from the University of California, where she had already served as an adviser to the department of anthropology. In 1908 she was made honorary professor in the National Museum of Mexico. From 1911 to 1917 she was abroad during Mexico's revolutionary disturbances, and during that time she published New Light on Drake: Documents Relating to His Voyage of Circumnavigation, 1577'961580 (1914)."

    John Parrott, 53, member of one of San Mateo's most historic families, died at Mills Memorial hospital after a short illness this morning.

    He was a grandson of the late John Parrott, early pioneer who set up the vast Parrott estate which once formed a large portion of what is now the city of San Mateo.

    In the two generations from the older John Parrott, the family has become related by marriagae to the Tobin, Redington, Crocker, Donahoe, DeGuigne, de Tristan, Hayne, Payson and numerous other families, all prominent in historic annals of the county.

    Lived On Estate
    The grandson of the early pioneer lived at 600 El Camino Real in what was known as the "bungalow" of the former vast Parrott estate. The original Parrott home stood on West Third avenue and, after having been destroyed by fire several years ago, was replaced by a modern apartment house.

    The third John received his early education in San Mateo schools, then attended Santa Clara university. He received his bachelor of arts and master of arts degrees from Georgetown university at Washington, D.C., and then attended Fribourg university in Switzerland.

    Served In War
    He was a graduate of the first officer's training camp at San Francisco presidio and served as a first lieutenant in the 347th Field Artillery of the 91st division during the World war.

    For many years he was associated with the Parrott Estates compajy and had spent the last few years in retirement at the San Mateo family home.

    He was the son of John Parrott Jr. and Mary Donohoe Parrot. He was one of ten children, six of whom are still living. His sisters are Emilie, who became Mrs. Wilberforce Williams, Abby, who became Mrs. Edward J. Tobin; Josephine, who became Mrs. Lawrence W. Redington; and Miss Barbara Parrott.

    Two Killed in War
    Still living are his brothers, William G. and Stephan Z. (sic) Parrott. Two others, Joseph A. and Edmund A. Parrott, were killed during the World war, and fifth brother, Francis C. Parrott, was killed in an automobile accident.

    The first John Parrott was one of the leading shipping magnates of ealry California history and helped to build the firm of Parrott & Co., which he founded in 1855. One of his principle claims to fame came with his construction of the Parrott's Granite block on Montgomery street in San Francisco.

    This building was so solidly constructed that it withstood numerous early fires and the great earthquake of 1906. The building was finally torn down in 1926 to make way for a modern structure.

    Built in 1860
    His principle interest, despite his active part in business, was in his family of one son, the father of the third John Parrott, and six daughters. Two of these still remain, Grace Parrott Hayne, who still leaves on the Hayne estate west of El Camino Real in San Mateo, and Mrs. Joseph A. Donahoe, wife of the mayor of Atherton.

    In 1860, the first John Parrott built the large family home in Baywood. From that date on, his interest in San Mateo county affairs increased rapidly and he played a large part in progress and upbuilding of the city and county. His home in Baywood was built when less than a dozen houses stood in San Mateo.

    Included Baywood
    The Parrott lands once included all of Baywood, the majority now subdivided and developed into modern residential area, and a large portion of the land now occupied by the city part and Third, Fourth and Fifth avenue business frontages. While Third avenue property has been opened several years, Fourth avenue was opened over a year ago.

    During the later years of his life, the original John Parrott spent most of his time here and engaged in raising pure-bred horses. At the age of 74, he died at his home in San Francisco, which stood at 620 Folsom street, next to the home of General Folsom.

    Funeral Friday

    Funeral services for the third John Parrott will be held Friday morning at 10 o'clock with requiem mass being celebrated at St. Mattew's Catholic church. Interment will be in St. John's cemetery, the cemetery given to the Catholic parish by his grandfather and where other members of the prominent family have been buried.

    Services are under the direction of N. Gray & Sons mortuary in San Francisco.

    Some of the number, after months of preparation, have found that they are disqualified through having some relative an officer in the service, as was the case with Miss Josephine Parrott, whose brothers, Lieutenant John Parrott, Jr., Joseph Parrott, William Parrott and Edmund Parrott, are all in the service, Edmund Parrott being in France at this time and the others expecting to be there in the course of a few months.

    General Notes: PARROTT SCION SEVERELY BURNED S.M. HOME
    ------------
    Condition at Hospital To Be Critical
    Clothes Ignite While Smoking in Bed, According to S.M. Police

    William G. Parrott, 59, millionaire president of the Parrott Estate corporation and a major stockholder in the Parrott Investment company, was near death at Peninsula hospital toda with third-degree burns of the body suffered when he accidentally se himself afire shortly before midnight at his home, 972 Palm avenue, San Mateo.

    Parrott literally became a human torch, unable to free himself of the fire as he stood on a rubberized bath mat which, melting, adhered to his feet. Police and fire investigators said he inadvertantly ignited his pajamas while lighting a cigarette.

    In Bed at Time
    The socially prominent member of the pioneer Parrott family of San Mateo apparently became engulfed with flames as he lay in bed. Fire Inspector Cecil Morris and investigating officer John Pawson said it was believed a book of matches ignited in his hand and dropped onto his night attire.

    Although reported crippled with arthritis, Parrott leaped out of bed, calling to his elderly house-keeper, Miss Mary Moran, for help. He ran to the bathroom, tearing off portions of his flaming pajamas.

    There, investigators said, the burning material dropped onto the chenille rubber mat, igniting it, and flames sread to his limbs. Pawson reported that the melting rubber so adhered to Parrott's feet that a large portion of skin remained attached to it after it was pulled from the unconscious man's body.

    Smothers Flames
    Miss Moran said that she found Parrott engulfed in flames, frantically striving to beat them out and crying for help. She seized a large towel and smothered the flames as he collapsed unconscious to the floor.

    Near hysteria, Miss Moran called the family physician, Dr. Jack E. Kahoun, of San Mateo. He was contacted by the Physicians' Exchange Telephone Servic and told police when called the home Miss Moran could only scream, "He's burned, he's burned!"

    Rushing to the home, he said found Parrott lying on the bathroom floor, 75 per cent of his body covered with third-degree burns. An ambulance took him to Penisula hospital, where extensive surgery was required. Doctors, however, held little hope for his recovery.

    Miss Moran, after calling the doctor, also summoned police, firemen, and Miss Barbara Parrott, a sister who lives at 1408 Alameda de las Pulgas in San Mateo.

    Sister Near Collapse
    At the hospital attendants said he regained consciousness later this morning, but was unable to give an account of the accident. His sister was reported on the verge of collapse at the hospital, where she remained through the night. Doctors said that the burns covered his torso almost in its entirety.

    Investigators said that, despite severity of the fire, it did not damage the bedroom or immediately adjoining bathroom except for circles of charred spots. Officers said that Parrott apparently had been in the habit of having a great many book matches around, carrying them on his person. These were in evidence almost everywhere in the room. A cigarette thrown aside indicated it had just been lit and that Parrott had not had the opportunity for even one puff before being engulfed by flames, officers said.

    Miss Moran said she last saw Parrott about 11:30 p.m. when he went to bed. She said she then wnt to the kitchen. Within a few minutes, she said, she heard Parrott cry out for help.

    In Semiretirement
    Parrott, socialite for many years, had been living in semiretirement here, it was reported.

    The Parrott family, one of the original major landholders of the Peninsula, was founded by John Parrott Sr. who in 1850 bought the sprawling tract which is today much of the city's business district and exclusive Baywood tract.

    Parrott is the eldest son of the John Parrotts II, and was married to Gertrude Hopkns. They were divorced in 1949 and she is now Mrs. William W. Crocker of Burlingame. His only child, Wiliam G. Parrott of Santa Monica, flew here from Los Angeles this morning and was at his father's bedside at the hospital. He was joined by three of the four sisters, Miss Parrott, Mrs. Josephine Burgess of San Francisco and Mrs. Edward Tobin of Baywood. A fourth sister, the eldest who lives across the street from Parrott at 971 Palm avenue and who is reported in failing health since the recent loss of her husband, has not been told of the accident. A brother, Stephen Parrott, is in Europe.

    The family is related to the Christian de Guignes, the Charles Thlerriots, the de Tristans and Donohoe families. It traces its branches to the historic eras of San Francisco and San Mateo counties.

    The Parrott Investment company, headed by Parrott, besides owning the multimillion dollar commercial secion on Fourth avenue, taking int he block including the Joseph Magnin and other exclusive stores, also holds extensive properties throughout the San Francisco commercial district, including the Emporium, and has ranch properties throughout the state.

    General Notes: E.A. PARROTT OF SAN MATEO MEETS DEATH IN AIR BATTLE
    ----
    Four Brothers Are Still in U.S. Army Service; Another Killed in Accident
    ---------
    A cable message was received yesterday announcing the death in battle of Edmund Anthony Parrott, son of Mrs. John Parrott of San Mateo and the late John Parrott, and grandson of the late Mrs. Abby Parrott. He had just been sent to the front after completing his flying school training in France. In his last letter to his mother, dated July 16th, he wrote teh following prophetic words from a chateau where he was billeted in France:

    "From here we will probably be sent to the front in a few days, for which I will be thoroughly thankful, as it will mean the fulfillment of my desires, and the examination of my long and tedious training. I am writing this by the light of a candel out on the terrace of teh castle, from which there is a sheer drop of 160 feet of ivy-covered wall down to the level of the little old bower that nestles around its base. As I write there comes through the still night air the rumble and roar of the mighty guns at Chateau Thierry, more than 100 miles away. As I listen to the distant thunder I cannot help but think that it is the death knell of the German people in this war, and I am eager to get into the fight, that I may do my bit toward the final overthrow of the pernicious doctrine which has so upset the world."

    Young Parrott has given his life, as he would have wished, doing his duty.

    Edmund Anthony Parrott was born in California twenty-two years ago last June. When the war broke out he was a student at the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale. He was a member of the first class at the aviation school at the University of California, and was graduated among the first ten at the top of the class. After training here he was sent first to Italy and subsequently to France, and after his long training experience was sent to the front with the American forces in charge of a bombing machine.

    His brother John Parrott is now a Lieutenant attached to the staff of General Burr in France; his brother, William G. Parrott, also a Lieutenant, is attached to the Mather aviation field, near Sacramento; his brother, Joseph Parrott, is a member of the division at Camp Fremon, and his brother, Stephen Parrott, is a member of the reserve officers' training school at Harvard University.

    It will be remembered that anoher brother, Francis, was instantly killed on the night of June 6, 1917, when his automobile crushed, head-on, into an auto truck near Burlingame. Francis was 19 years old.

    Miss Josephine Parrott, who was for some time secretary to Mrs.John B. Casserly in Red Cross work, and later served under Herbert Hoover in the Food Administration at Washington, is now a yeomanette in the Navy, and is stationed in Washington. Another sister, Miss Barbara Parrott, last week decided to leave shortly for France to assist her aunt, the Countess de la Lande, in the management of a Red Cross hospital near the front. Miss Emilie Parrott and Mrs. Edward J. Tobin are sisters.

    For his WWI draft card, he was a student in Cambridge, MA.

    From Pete Froehlich <gmozias@gmail.com>

    "He and F. Scott Fitzgerald knew each other at the Newman school in New Jersey. Fitzgerald inscribed a copy of his first novel to Stephan "to my brother." Yet their friendship is more or less dismissed by Fitzgerald's biographer as having to do only with a shared relationship to their mentor at the Newman School, Monsignor Sigourney Fay. "

    Shane Leslie knew Fay, Fitzgerald, and Stephan, as well as another priest, William Hemmick, about this time (around 1910 or so). His letters with Hemmick mention Stephan from time to time through the 1950s; I believe Stephan might have worked with or for Hemmick for a time in Paris or Rome."

    Cecil Parrott, Death March survivor, dies.

    He survived the infamous Bataan Death march, and endured savage beatings, bouts of dysentery and starvation as a Japanese POW in World War II.

    But Cecil Waldo Parrott lost his final battle The Bellevue resident did not live to win reparations for himself and thousands of other POWs forced to work without compensation for Japanese companies.

    Parrott died Thursday at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Seattle. He was 83.

    Though he endured 1,228 days in captivity, as one of 70,000 U.S. and Filipino soldiers who surrendered to the Japanese on April 9, 1942, Parrott maintained his faith in
    family and refused to hate his captors.

    He was a gentle man who "loved the Japanese people," said his son-in-law David Andress of North Bend. "He was very forgiving of the Japanese people, because he knew it wasn't the people (who caused the suffering), it was the military."

    Born in Mount Vernon on July 20, 1920, Parrott spent his boyhood moving from town to town in Idaho as his carpenter father sought work during the Great Depression.

    He met his future wife, Ruby, at a vocational school in Weiser, Idaho. They would marry in 1947, after the war ended.

    Parrott enlisted in 1940, and spent more than a year stationed in the Philippines before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. He was a corporal in the U.S. Army Signal Corps when the Japanese captured the Bataan peninsula.

    More than 10,000 soldiers would not survive the resulting Death March, victims of exhaustion, thirst, disease and horrific treatment by their captors.

    "If you had a ring that was so tight on your finger, because your finger had swelled up some, they would cut your finger off. That's how cruel they were," Parrott told the
    Journal in an interview in 2001.

    "I saw men bayoneted for trying to get a drink. I decided that dying of thirst was preferable," he said.

    He credits a cook from the Japanese army with helping him survive and enabling him to see the enemy as individuals. He and other stragglers were stopped by the cook, who shared what little he has --- some boiled rice, sweet tea and one mackerel, cut into five pieces. the tea, the only clean water he had during the march, probably saved his life, Parrot told the Journal.

    Surviving the nearly 70-mile march was no guarantee of surviving the war. By late 1942, in Camp O'Donnell in Luzon, dysentery, beriberi and starvation had carved 68 pounds from his 165-pound frame. He was sent to "Zero Ward," a crawl space under the barracks where men were left to die.

    Every morning, Parrott would wake up with yet another dead man next to him. "I noticed that the night before a guy died, he would talk about how abandoned he felt, how he was convinced no one cared, that his family had forgotten him," Parrott told the Journal in May 1995. "Not me. I would get home to my family."

    Parrott simply refused to give up. He weighted 96 pounds when he was liberated from a Japanese work camp on August 19, 1945.

    Parrott moved to Bellevue in 1955 and worked as an engineer for Boeing until the layoffs of the early 1970s, son-in-law Andress said. then he opened his own general contracting business before retiring a decade ago.

    He was known for helping veterans and for putting in grabbars for seniors for a minimal charge, just to help out, Andress said. "He was a giving person," Andress said.

    The war brought Parrott a Purple Heart, Bronze Star and other medals, but left him with nightmares and digestive problems throughout his life, Andress said.

    He testified against some of the prison guards after the war, "but he was able to separate individual Japanese people," Andress said.

    "We should never forget the sacrifices Americans have made in war," Parrott told the Journal in 1955." but we also should remember the point of it all: peace and brotherhood
    among all peoples."

    In 1999, Parrott joined a class-action lawsuit filed in California seeking damages against present-day Japanese corporations Mitsui and Mitsubishi, owners of the mining companies that used the labor of 20,000 POWs during the war. They have not been compensated to this day. "What's sad," Andress said, "is at the end he was very
    upset" about that.

    Parrott is survived by his wife of 56 years, Ruby of Bellevue; daughters Cheryl (and David) Andress of North Bend and Marcy (and Tm) Davis of Yakima; and five grandchildren.
    Services have not yet been scheduled.

    General Notes: Joseph F. Parrott; Our beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend,

    Joseph F. Parrott, 88, of King Hill, Idaho, went to live for eternity with his Heavenly Father on July 4, 2005, surrounded by his caring family.

    Joe began life in a small white house on the Brailsford Ranch outside of Hagerman, Idaho, in 1916. He rode to school in the covered wagon school bus with a camp stove in the winter to keep warm. On nice days, the boys could chase skunks on the way to school so they would be "scent" home. In 1929, after his father's death, Joe quit school and went to work to help the family, first milking 25 cows, then at age 16, he rounded up Mustangs on the Bruneau Desert. In 1936 Joe went to the Bray ranch, met and
    married Blanche Bray.

    Joe worked for the CCC and the shipyard in Seattle. After Blanche's death, Joe returned to Idaho to do what he loved most, work with the cows and horses. Joe brought his new wife, Una, with him. Joe wanted to give his family more, so he packed up and moved to Colorado then on the (to) San Antonio, Texas, where he worked in construction for 11 years. After the four children married, he returned to his beloved mountains and cows.

    His grandchildren spent many summers learning the lifestyle of a "true cowboy". Long hours, hot days, miles of wilderness, but with the love of their grandpa. Joe's motto, "IF you do a job, do it the best you can." The wake up call was always "Daylight in the swamp," even though the sun was not up! So with groans, but few complaints, they would eat their sourdough hot cakes, eggs, bacon and get their horses ready and head out before sunrise.

    Joe's motto, "You can never catch a Parrott in bed when the sun is up."

    Joe married Helen Hoagland after the death of Una. Helen and Joe had four wonderful years together.

    Joe is survived by his wife, Helen Parrott, brother, James and Mani Parrott, Las Vegas, Nev.; two sisters, Lucille Gilmore, Anchorage, Alaska, and Dorla and Ray Leach, San Antonio, Texas; son, Ted and Elana Parrott, Emmett, Idaho; two daughters, Elora and Wayne Harmon, San Antonio, Texas, and Leslie Parrott, Boise, Idaho; daughter-in-law, Margo Parrott, Meridian, Idaho. 12 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews and many other children that spent summers and weekends, who were loved like his own.

    Joe was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Florence Parrott, his wife, Blanche Bray Parrott, wife, Una Palmer Parrott; son, Richard James Parrott and two grandsons.

    208. Richard James Parrott (Joseph Franklin Jr.6, Joseph Franklin "Frank" Sr.5, William Edward4, Evan S.3, John Jr.2, John Sr.1) was born on 18 May 1946 in Wendell, Gooding Co., Idaho and died on 19 Jan 2005 in Boise, Ada Co., Idaho at age 58.

    General Notes: MERIDIAN -- Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, son and friend, went to rest for eternity in the loving arms of his Heavenly Father at the earthly age of 58 on Jan. 19, 2005, at his job site in Boise, Idaho.

    The funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 23, 2005, at the Alden-Waggoner Funeral Chapel, 5400 Fairview Ave., Boise. Cremation will follow the service.
    Richard was born in Wendell, Idaho, on May 18, 1946, to Joseph Franklin and Una Mary Parrott. For 11 years, he lived the life of a cowboy in the hills of Idaho. He never forgot and he continued to love and live by the ethics of the "Cowboy Way." He rode trailing cows from the young age of 2 - still in diapers. His family moved to Colorado when his father was made construction superintendent of the U. S. Air Force Academy. They continued to travel until settling in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from East Central High School and he completed one year of college at San Antonio Community College. Richard also completed a four year apprenticeship in carpentry to become a journeyman carpenter. He was a master finish carpenter and a perfectionist who worked in his given trade until his death.

    He met his wife, Margo, a "Texas girl," at the age of 16 and they were married on March 14, 1965. He could never get Idaho out of his system and he moved his family back in 1977. While in Idaho, they were blessed with two "Idaho" children to compliment their two "Texas" children.

    Some of his most enjoyable times were when he and his brother, Ted, were in the roping arena, roping calves at the many brandings they attended. He seldom missed and his wife, "a city girl," was in awe of his roping and riding abilities.

    Richard could also repair anything, including his children's vehicles, the ice maker, the garbage disposal, etc. His family depended greatly on him. He loved his family more than human words can describe.

    He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He taught his children respect for guns and for other people's property. His greatest achievement was when he killed a bull elk the first time he went bow hunting. As he got older he enjoyed going with the boys, and got more pleasure out of taking pictures, hunting arrowheads and other Native American artifacts.

    Richard's faith in God and love of his Heavenly Father permeated into all areas of his life. He held many priesthood offices and at his death was an apostle in the Restoration Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    He is survived by his wife, Margo of Meridian; son and daughter-in-law, Jon and Gina of Kuna; daughter and fiance', Toni of Meridian and Scott Yates of Harmon, Ga.; son and daughter-in-law, Matthew and Charlene (Charlie) of Meridian; and daughter, Bethany (Bethy) Parrott of Meridian; his father, Joseph Franklin Parrott Jr. and his wife, Helen of King Hill, Idaho; his sisters, Elora (Wayne) Harmon of San Antonio, Texas, and Leslie Parrott of Boise; a brother, Ted (Elana) Parrott of Emmett; his granddaughters, Devry and Alex Parrott of Kuna and Bentley Parrott of Meridian; and many nieces and nephews.

    John Blackburn Parrott (1931 - 2006)

    our Lord on Feb. 8, 2006.
    John was born in Kentucky on Jan. 5, 1931, to Arch and Fannie Parrott as the youngest of 12 children. John was a beloved husband, dad and "Papa" to his grandchildren. To know John was to love John.

    John proudly served in the Army during the Korean War. On leave, when visiting family in Camarillo, John found the love of his life in a girl named Cherry Horton, a lifelong resident of Camarillo. John and Cherry married in 1952 and settled down in Camarillo, where they happily raised their four boys. If you are a longtime resident of Camarillo, you were probably touched in some way by John. He may have encouraged you or your son in his 25 years as a Little League coach, shook your hand and greeted you with a smile at church, cheered alongside you at a Camarillo High School sports event, or exchanged stories and life lessons with you as he cut your hair at his barber shop on Ventura Boulevard over the past 52 years.

    John's greatest joys in life were spending time with his children and grandchildren. He taught his family that happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have, and that the greatest gift you can give someone is the gift of your time. If you knew John, you knew what it was life to be accepted for who you are, to be truly listened to, cared about, and what it felt like to be deeply loved. John will be remembered best with his family around him as he held up his hand with the I love you sign.

    He is survived by his wife, Cherry; sons and daughters-in-law, Mike and Heidi, Steve and Kathryn, Pat and Debbie, and Mitch and Susan; grandchildren, Ryan, Randi, Kourey, John, Nicholas and Emma; and sister, Evelyn McCain.
    A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 13, at Camarillo Church of Christ, 515 Temple Ave., Camarillo. A graveside service will follow at Conejo Mountain Memorial Park, 2052 Howard Road, Camarillo, and then a gathering back at the church.

    In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Camarillo Church of Christ.

    Eighth Generation (5th Great-Grandchildren)


    240. Floyd Irwin Parrott Jr. (Floyd I. Sr.7, Charles William Jr.6, Charles William Sr.5, Walker C.4, Ensley3, John Jr.2, John Sr.1) was born on 26 May 1939 in Ontario, Malheur Co., Oregon and died on 4 Sep 2016 in Fossil, Wheeler Co., Oregon at age 77.

    General Notes: Floyd Irwin Parrott Jr., 77, died of natural causes Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016, at home in Fossil, Oregon. Memorial Services are pending.

    An Oregon native, he was born May 26, 1939 in Ontario, Oregon to Floyd (Sr.) and Doris Blair Parrott. He graduated from Ontario High School in 1957 and attended Portland State College where he studied business and accounting. He left Portland State to work for Mulino Sash and Door as an accounting/credit manager, but his real aim was to be in business for himself.

    He undertook certification in two trade areas, small engine repair and lock-smithing, and soon opened Rolling Wheel Lawn and Garden Center in Mulino. Later, he would own a motel in La Grande, Oregon and later still, Perky Parrotts' Mini Mart and Restaurant in Turner, Oregon. In recent years, he and his wife Sheryl had moved into real estate, managing properties and purchasing and renovating houses, including a home in Ione.

    A determined problem solver, Floyd taught himself how to do whatever needed doing. That trait marked his entire adult life; anything that needed fixing occupied his mind until he learned how to repair it.

    He carried that same ability into three stints in public service. Having volunteered with the fire department and ambulance service in Mulino, he went on to serve as City Administrator in Union, Oregon and Depoe Bay, and as Mayor of Lonerock, Oregon.

    Beside work and volunteer activities, he loved reading, piano playing and woodworking.

    Survivors include his wife, Sheryl Bidney Parrott, whom he married December 4, 1965 at the Grace Lutheran Church in Molalla; his mother, Doris Parrott; a brother, Rod Parrott, both of Hood River; a son, Troy of Enterprise; and a daughter, Kristine of Salem; three grandchildren, Cassandra Jones, Brittany Medina and Emily Parrott; and three great-grandchildren, Keagan Jones, Lily Hochstetler and Erik Hochstetler, Jr.

    He was preceded in death by his father, Floyd I. Parrott St.; and grandson, Erik Hochstetler, Sr.
