I found an Albert Parsley listed in the 1880 Clark, Johnson County, Indiana Federal Census, age 22 (~1858) born in Indiana, with wife Flora age 18 also born in Indiana.Living with them is Author K. Parsley, age 14 (~1866), born in California and listed as "other" on my transcription.
I believe that Albert and Author are related but don't know how they are related.I also believe that Author may be a brother to Mary Parsley, also born in California (~1861) but cannot confirm it. Mary is 20 in 1880 and living in Page County, Iowa with new husband George Carlile.
I would appreciate anyone contacting me who may have any information whatsoever on these Parsleys.If Albert and Author are related, they may have a W. H. Parsley in common.W. H. Parsley may be the father of Mary and Author. Thank you very much.
