I did receive your email and thank you for the response. Walter Parson is my grandfather. I live in California and have for the past 27 years.
It is great to hear from a portion of the family that I really haven't met. In the Wildwood Cemetary, the grave markers indicate that several of the Massengales were in the military and were also Masons. I am a Mason and served in the Marine Corps.
I remember Uncle Dan (I know he was in the Army during WWI)from his visits to Granny (Ellen Parson) when I was a kid.
Although Grandpa Walter worked for Clarence(I'm not sure of the spelling), I met Clarence through a relative of my wife, years after grandpa worked for him.
