62. Virginia3 Linn (Joseph Britton2, Andrew1)(700) was born in Beech Creek, Clinton Co., PA circa 1854. Virginia died April 17, 1925 in Lock Haven, Clinton Co., PA, at 70 years of age. Her body was interred in Lock Haven, Clinton Co., PA.
She married Edward K. Parsons circa 1880.(701) Edward(702) was the son of Joseph Parsons and Ann E. Fribley. Edward died March 3, 1917.
Edward was a merchant in Beech Creek prior to 1900 and apparently, he later moved to Lock Haven (00853:60). Edward was an Alderman and is buried in Highland Cemetery (01490:9). Edward Parsons was the father of Dick Parsons and uncle of ?. T. (Torrence?) Parsons. Virginia Linn Parsons developed the same kind of Palsy like condition that affected her brother J. Britt and her nephew J. Britt (son of James). John Parsons the son of Edward and Virginia, who became a millionaire, developed the same condition at about age 60. This information is from Dr. Richard T. Parsons whose grandfather Charles was a brother of Edward K. Parsons. William Parsons born in Beech Creek in 1844 was of the same Parsons connection. Dick Parson's great-grandfather was Joseph Parsons. (00838:40) Edward's wife, Virginia, died at the home of her sister-in-law, Mrs. Mary E. Canfiled [perhaps Canfield] at 119 East Water Street, Lock Haven (01409:9). __________________________For Additional Information See the Clinton County Times of April 24, 1925 and the Clinton Republican of April 4, 1917 (01409:9).
Virginia Linn and Edward K. Parsons had the following child:
225 i. John4 Parsons(703). He married Lillian Buggy February 17, 1915.(704) (Additional notes for Lillian Buggy(705)) __________________For Additional Information See the Clinton County Times of February 19, 1915 (01409:17). ___________________Further Research Required Sources 00947:8 and 01409:17 have his name as Joseph Edward as opposed to source 00838:40 which states the name as John. Joseph Edward may be correct because the author of 00947 & 01409 also have his wife listed; source 00838:40 doesn't indicate a wife. Perhaps, then Mr. Johnstonbaugh (00947 & 01409) had more information than Mr. Lingle (00838:40); in which case Johnstonbaugh's work may have the edge on accuracy. Until this matter is resolved, John shall be used.
