PUMPER & MOLLIE PARKS, CLIFTON, TX Obituaries
Posted by: JUANITA BROWN (ID *****5462) Date: March 12, 2009 at 15:22:28
  of 576

E. S. Parks (known as Pumper) and his wife, Mollie R. Woods. Found in the 1900 Census of Clifton, Bosque Co., TX with thier oldest daughter Katie L. Parks, born 1899. Pumper claims he was born in Madisonville, TN, but he is found in the 1880 Census of Perry, Monroe Co., IN as a 3 yr. old son of William W. and Mary A. Parks. Pumper (Edgar Samuel) Parks was born 1877. Mollie R. Woods was born 1878 in Ben Wheeler, Van Zandt Co., TX.
Where did they marry? Were they married in Bosque Co.?

By 1910, they have another daughter, Eddie Parks (Edwina?) born 1905. Eddie married someone by the name of ____Martin, but was either divorced or widowed when she returned to Clifton in the 1950's to coach girls sports at Clifton High School. She had no known children.

Katie L. had left by 1920 and married, but I couldn't find a marriage record, name of husband or where she went to after the 1920 Census. She returned to visit in the 1950's and had a grown daughter that she called "Sunshine". I don't know if that was a nickname or real name or whether there were any other siblings.

Pumper died a the Santa Fe Hospital in Temple, TX in 1956 and is buried in the Clifton Memorial Cem. Mollie lived to be 107 years old and died in 1985 in a Nursing Home in Meredian? She is buried next to Pumper and there is a grave site for Eddie, who also lived past 100 and died in a Care facility in Wichita Falls.

I have the Obit for Eddie, or at least I did have it. Can anyone obtain a copy of the Clifton paper Obituaries for Pumper and Mollie?

Does anyone have any information on their daughter Katie L. (Katherine) and her family? The Parks Home overlooking the Bosque River on Riverside Drive, next to the Railroad bridge-does it still exist? Thank you for any information you may be able to share. JBrown
