Parents not named in cemetery record for the first two. 

Parents named for the third, but if he was born in 1834, he waited 66 years until 1900 to get married. Not likely. Here are the parents names anyway.

About Family Data Collection - Births

The Family Data Collection - Births database was created while gathering genealogical data for use in the study of human genetics and disease. Compiling data for genetic research does not require the same type of documentation as traditional genealogical research. The genes themselves verify relationships and qualify or disqualify a person from a particular study. Citing the source of every genealogical fact in the electronic gene pool was deemed unnecessary and cost prohibitive by medical researchers.
