Martha Jane "Mattie" Polly Parks
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug., 1855
Dallas County
Texas, USA
Death: Apr. 7, 1932
Tulare County
California, USA

Noah Parks is Mattie's second marriage. I strongly believe they married in Texas and shortly thereafter headed for Arizonia.
Mattie's first marriage was to George Wilson Lancaster. She appears in the 1880 Rockwall County Texas Census with George and mother in law Margaret. Mattie possible had six children with George Lancaster & two daughters with Noah. In the 1900 Maricopa County Arizona Federal Census list Noah and her married about 1893.
