Robert Melvin Parrish

  • Birth 9 Oct 1912 Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA
  • Death unknown Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA
  • Burial Unknown
  • Memorial ID 37552570

I created this memorial for my Grandfather. He is the only Grandparent I never knew. I am trying desperately to find information on him, especially where he may be buried.

I also have not been able to find him in the Social Security Death Index. I've spent a lot of hours researching, but haven't been able to find much on any of my elusive Parrish family.

I've been told he at one time was a mortician's helper in Philadelphia, I presume. On the 1940 census, I see his job listed as Investigator. I've also been unsuccessful in trying to obtain his college records from Virginia State University.
