Birth: Apr. 30, 1870
Death: Nov. 2, 1930

Mary Ary Parrish was born April 30, 1870 in Maryville, Nodaway Co., MO, the fourth of thirteen children of Linus Freeman Parrish (FAG 57033220) and Watie Elizabeth (Reynolds) Parrish (FAG 57033256). She was raised at Ravanna and became engaged there to Dr. Edward Everett Evans, but moved with her family to Mulberry, Bates Co., MO and taught school there for a year before her wedding. She was barely five feet tall, 19 years old, and had 60 pupils ranging from six-year-olds to full-grown boys and girls nearly her own age. She was married at the Parrish farm near Mulberry on her 20th birthday. After the wedding she and Dr. Evans returned to Ravanna, where he continued to practice medicine until his early death.

In 1925, after her husband and mother had died, Mary moved to Ottawa, KS to keep house and care for her father and her brother Rey Parrish. She died there in 1930 and was buried at Ravanna with her husband.
