He was my Uncle John's father.

He was the son of Charles Douglas "Duffy" Parkhurst Sr. and Agnes Delorey.

His first wife was Verna Steele, the daughter of Harry (yellow bird) Steele & Jennie Carlow. They divorced and he went on to marry my Aunt Alice N. Lee Parkhurst Stomley in November 1941 in Rushville Nebraska.

He was father to three children: Constance Marie Parkhurst Anderson, John Parkhurst (linked above), & Beverly June Parkhurst Monday.

He was an Oneida Indian with his roots in Red Lake MN. and the Oneida Reservation WI.

Family lore says he fell off of a barstool dead one night while out at a bar he frequented.

His Obituary is as follows:

A veteran of World War II, he was a member of the American Legion Post No. 20 and was employed on area ranches during his residence in the state.

Graveside services will be held Thursday morning at the Mountain View Cemetery under direction of the American Legion Post No. 20.
