Birth: Oct. 11, 1915
Missouri, USA
Death: Feb. 3, 1999
Jasper County
Missouri, USA

Jewel Fred Parks was born on October 11, 1915 to Doctor Fred Parks (he wasn't an actual Doctor, but his mother chose the name Doctor for him at birth) and Ida Krish Arnhart.

He joined an older brother, Giles Berdet Parks who was born Oct 12 1910 and later was joined by a sister Juanita Parks who was born in 1920.

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!?!?
