My father, Thomas Reese Parry, was an American born Welshman. My mother, Violet Michie, was also born in America, as were both her parents. Her father was Scottish and English; her mother was English and Danish. My paternal grandparents and maternal great grandparents all immigrated to America between 1840 and 1890, eventually settling in Utah. This photo of my parents was taken in the 1930s.
