Mary Alice "Mamie" McDowell Parsons
Birth: Apr. 16, 1870
Macon County
Missouri, USA
Death: Feb. 6, 1963
San Francisco
San Francisco County
California, USA

Mary was born in Missouri, the daughter of John B. A. McDowell & Martha Alice Epler. By 1887, the family had moved to Whitman, Washington. Her mother had a milliner shop and she learned to sew beautifully-hats, dresses; she even made wedding dresses. She married John Clement Parsons on 25 April 1899 in Seattle. They had 2 daughters, Helen and Mary. When Helen was 3, she developed polio and at the advice of doctors, they moved to Eureka, California where it was warmer and drier. Son Robert was born there before the family went to Santa Rosa. They had 4 more children- James, Martha, Francis, and Genevieve. The family later lived in Vallejo, California and she spent her later years in San Francisco.
