There is an historical Fouch who founded a town, Frank Fouch is known as the founding father of Parma Idaho.He was reading a book on Italy when the railroad needed a name for the town, so he named it Parma, after the Italian town that he was reading about.According to the Parma Review,"The esteem of the community was shown when, after Frank Fouch's death in February, 1930, all places of business closed during his funeral.Mr. Fouch was a man of great faith, said Mr. Montgomery on that occasion, faith in his contry, his state, his community, and in his fellowmen.
"Frank Fouch lived to see his dream come true.His town had become a "good place to live and rear a family."It still is." * quoted from the Parma review - 1971 centenial editions
