At the present time, this site covers the branch of the Parkins family descended from Samual Larue. The site is under construction. Contributions from family members are welcome.
This site is dedicated to the memory of Don C. Parkins, 1913 - 1998. The picture at left of Don, his wife, Hilda, and their infant son, Larye, was taken in early 1944 before Don deployed with the U.S. Navy Seabees (Construction Battalion) to the Pacific Theater.
Don was the oldest member of the Parkins family to use computers, taking an interest in desktop publishing as a hobby after the death of Hilda in 1986. He also wrote many stories of his early life and retirement adventures, some of which are presented here.
For additional information or contributions, email Larye D. Parkins, webmaster
