My dad is Richard Parrett, from Oregon, he has an identical twin Robert, who lives in California.I have not gotten too far into his family genealogy, but it looks like not a lot of people have done his particular line, but thought I would post it to save some the trouble.I have other information than I am going to post that I have not verified, but here is what I know for sure.
