James Hamilton Parks
Birth: Mar. 20, 1860
Marion County
Missouri, USA
Death: Mar. 30, 1934
Long Beach
Los Angeles County
California, USA

James Hamilton Parks was an interesting person and recently we found a second of his oil paintings. We wish we knew if he was self taught or studied and how much he painted.

His death certificate reports a birth year of 1870; his marker at Rose Hills states 1861. Census dates vary from 1860 to 1869.

A handwritten family document which may have been copied from a family Bible states 1860 so I am going to use that date here and also once again on

He was one of eight children. Some are listed in Find-A-Grave. His siblings are, in birth order:
Martha E. Parks/Parkes # 67770321
John William B. Parks #99148875
Olive Josephine Parks (Josie or Josephine, Ward, Hutchinson)
George McClellan/d Parks #106984349
Mary Josephine "Molly" Parks (Clark, Stevens)
Andrew "Andy" G. Parks (d. OK)
Ella Pearl Parks (Frazier) (d. OK)

His half sister was Ida C. Kelly (Patton/Patten), the "baby" of the family.

His parents were James M. Parks and Malinda C. Perry who remarried twice after James early death. I found Malinda #12128225 but have not yet found their father, James.

All three of James H. Parks' children, George, Vera and Paul, are now linked with the family.

Your family still thinks of you and we still have your painting of the man on horseback. You would have enjoyed the company of your grandson, Gary Parks.
