On December 20 1935, Jewel married Margaret Rosa "Margie" Comstock in Galena Missouri.
They were the parents of two children: Shirley J. Parks (O'Neal) 1937-2002 and Freddie Parks born 1945.
They had seven granddaughters and several great grand children.
Jewel Parks died on February 3, 1999 in Joplin, Missouri.
Uncle Jewel told a story of when he was a boy of about 10 years old, he felt something crawl up his leg and it was a mouse. He grabbed his pant leg where the mouse was and killed it. Can you imagine something like that!?!?
