It would be easier for someone to try to help if you included any dates/approximate dates of b, m or d for these individuals.

Do you know the name of Robert Parkers spouse?

Here is a very detailed article of the Robert Parker - Ruth Christie wedding from the Society Page of Columbus, Indiana's "Republic".  His brother Clfford was the best man.  Father is Charles L. Parker of New Castle.  Robert is a graduate of the State Normal College in Danville.  He worked as chief clerk at the public service company. Ruth is the only daughter of Mrs. Clara Chrstie. The article is from Oct. 1938.

FamilySearch.org has the 1910-1940 census records for Robert who was born in Indiana in 1905.

Ruth and Robert appear steadily in their local newspapers for various clubs and civil works. It might be worth a trip to a library to check all of it out on newspapers.com.  It will certainly give you a great sense of their life together.

This appears to be a photo of Mr. and Mrs. Parker in their family room n 1960.  https://www.newspapers.com/clip/6229467/the_republic/

THANK YOU!! THANK YOU from the bottom on my heart! I am on my 8 year of doing family search on my grandfather's side. It has been 9 years since he passed away. I have only seen one picture of his father (Robert). I only wish I could be here with us to tell me stories! I miss him!
I included my link before I saw this. Excellent work
