Sibling Saturday: Parker Brothers

Pictured above are the three sons of my great grandparents, Leroy and Ada (Steen) Parker about 1910. From left to right are Steen Parker, my maternal grandfather, and his brothers baby Paul Parker, and Glenn Parker. This picture (a digital copy of a photocopy) was taken before their baby sister Janet Parker was born. These little boys grew up on a farm in Perkins Township of Erie County, Ohio. Grandpa Steen Parker  died before I was born, but I fondly remember my great uncles, and Aunt Janet too. Uncle Paul Parker was married to Aunt Maribel, and he was always jovial, with a funny story to tell. Uncle Glenn was a longtime employee of Barr Rubber, and he also drove bus for Perkins Township schools. Uncle Glenn seemed more serious, and he took his responsibility as a Perkins Township Trustee very seriously. Below is a family group sheet for the Parker family.

My great grandparents, and all of their children, are buried in the Parker family lot at Perkins Cemetery.
