From The History of Westmoreland County Pennsylvania, Vol 2 by John Newton Boucher, John Woolf Jordan - 1906

William B. Parks received the educational advantages afforded by the common schools of that day, attending those in the First ward in Allegheny City until he was thirteen years of age. He then engaged in the trade of brick making with his father, becoming an expert mechanic, and at the age of twenty-two years began an apprenticeship at the trade of machinist, which he followed for twelve years.

He then returned to his former trade, brick making, at which he labored for twenty consecutive years, and at the expiration of this period of time located in Greensburg, Westmoreland county, established a general merchandise business, and has conducted the same with a large degree of success up to the present time (1905).

Mr. [William B.] Parks married, July 25, 1862, Amanda Baker, daughter of Joseph Baker, who bore him three children, all now deceased. Her death occurred December 23, 1865. Mr. Parks married his second wife, Eliza Brugh, a daughter of Jacob and Catherine (Pool) Brugh, the ceremony being performed March 28, 1868. Their Children were: William B., married Tilly Askil [note, Matilda Mersiowsky]; Catherine, married Frank Peebling; Oma Stone; Thomas, married Ida Augustine; James deceased, married Lizzie Orr; and Pearl, deceased.
