Dear Patty, you have asked about the three oldest children (preceding Thomas Fletcher). According to my family bible, Moses & Rebecca Parlet had a total of 11 children.The first three, Wm Riley (known as Riley), John Adams, and Mary Rebecca, were born in 1852, 1854, & 1856 respectively. The first two, Riley & John, were born in Ohio before the family moved to Iowa.I am not sure where Mary was born. According to my information, Riley & John grew up in the Oskaloosa area and married. Riley's wife was Eleanor (Ella) Yeoman.Riley did some farming and also worked as a coal prospector.Eventually the two men and their families moved to Washington Territory in 1879.I have no information on Mary. Riley & Ella had five children, and John & his wife had ten.Can you give me information on Thomas Fletcher and his younger brothers?
