|Peyton Bradford Parker||Mary N. S. W. Parker, and Robert Wallace Parker details|
Mary Norsworthy Shepard Whiteley, Washington D.C. died in March, 2010, at her residence in Washington D.C. She also attended Georgetown University where she finished her thesis on Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt, but her mother, Mrs. Richard Peyton Whiteley (Mary N. S. Whiteley) decided they would move to Freiburg, Germany in the mid 1930s for my mother Mary N.S.W. Parker to study further her German language skills, in order to enter into further degree studies in Berlin. They both left when Poland was attacked by Germany, traveling to England, and later back to the United States. My mother had lived in Spain for a year or two immediately after the Spanish revolution. During WWII, after their return to the United States, she lived for a year in Mexico City, studying at the University of Mexico. She later on was one of the first women U.S. State Department Officers in Latin America, where she served in Lima, Peru, prior to her marriage to R. W. Parker.
Mrs. Richard Peyton Whiteley (Mary N. S. Whiteley) published poetry, some examples: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/toc/240
Robert Wallace Parker was trained as a Classical architect at Georgia Tech, the last generation of Classically trained architects in the United States, before modernist architecture was the only training offered in architecture schools. He was the assistant to the head of Intelligence in London during WWII, having spent part of the last year, and immediately afterwards of WWII behind enemy lines, picking up scientists, and others of importance. One of these was the inventor of the Hovercraft, who he met in Königsberg, East Prussia, now Kaliningrad, Russia. He worked for Ford Motor Co, in the 1950s, was one of the top architects for the rebuilding of the factories for modernization of the manufacturing of the Ford cars. He represented the House of Lords for a brief time as their genealogist on questions of inheritance of U.S. relatives of Lords claiming inheritance. He also researched genealogy for his family, as well as a side job research for various other clients. The remainder you have notated on his Intelligence Command in Norfolk, VA. as a rank of Naval Intelligence Commander. Peyton Bradford Parker, son of Robert Wallace Parker, and Mary N.S.W. Parker.

His grave marker does not show his middle name as "Wesley". How did you find his middle name? He was my gggg-grandfather and I have never seen his middle name before. Thanks.

Hi, Could you transfer #22055383 as this is the cousin of my husband Layton Dowling and we are trying to add all of Vallie Dowling Haywood and James Allen Dowling's family information. Thank You,
Saundra Dowling (#48231502) Thanks
So far I found one person listed in there correctly, BUT another person who I found a headstone for is listed in RAV 62. I will check the ravine lot 62 next trip to see what I can find!

I have went through two people who I found in lot 62 so far but when I look them up in the records one is shown being in lot 29 and the other in 67. Lot 61 is right next to lot 62 where Hattie should be so I know I wasn't in the wrong place! I am not surprised though, I have found so many crazy things in this cemetery! Hard to say someone is even unmarked when they could very well just be elsewhere in the cemetery!
I will leave the photo up for now on her memorial. It will be funny if everyone in lot 62 is showing up in different lots!
