That makes sense. There are a few spaces on our original Parry tree under known families, for either a son or daughter / mother or father / brother or sister, but there was no names, from supplied info, just an initial, or a birth, or death date.

When David (cousin) went to England, he collected a fair bit of info from Churches, Registries, the Pub etc. But more than likely, not 100% correct. He then with the help of his father, did an ancestory and descendant tree. So far it's been correct.

With regards to the names, I gave you, there maybe the possibility, that they slot into our tree somewhere, but I need a little more info, like a date, or sibling, parent, etc. Heres hoping.

What your saying makes sense, if there not connected, then no-one can see them, just me..

Hi Barbara, not sure why Robert Parry is not showing on my tree. Might be a system hiccup. Privacy issue or something.

Here they are,

Parry-958 and Parry-963

You might be able to fill in a few blanks, recognize the siblings or parents from somewhere, the dates, places, might ring a bell etc etc.

Hi Barbara, have a few names for you, which may shed some light on the Okeden line.

Catherine Okeden, (Okeden-12 and Okeden-13) married David Parry (Parry-746). Her married name became Catherine Parry-Okeden. It may have been fashionable back then, to use your maiden name after your married name, perhaps either as a status symbol or a means to identify gentile. (pure guess).

They had an only child, called David, he carried on the tradition and was known as David Parry-Okeden (Parry-745).

I have left a message for Peter Parry Okeden, who is a direct relative of David Parry-Okeden, hopefully he can shed some light and some history on the use of the name.

These people also have an interest in the line as well;

Harris-15745 Telfer-316

Cheers Drew.

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum.
