This is a photo of Henry Parris of East Meredith. On the back of the photo is written the name "Henry Parish" with "(Parris)" written beside it, lightly in pencil, along with "Marybelle Place uncel, East Meredith, N.Y." written below (the name) in my grandmother’s handwriting. I have added a little bit of history below. --Pat Gray

HENRY B. PARRIS

Henry B. Parris (1849-1925), was the son of Sherwood & Cynthia (Dibble) Parris. He first married Mary Amanda Schultz (1851-1893) and to them three children were born: Eddie (1881-1885), Jessie Mable (1883-1967) and Margaret D. (1889-1972).

In 1895 Henry married Ella Mae Ryer (1863-1925), daughter of Jacob V. (1827-1908) and Betsey Ann (1833-1907) (Tompkins) Ryer. I have found no evidence of Henry and Ella having any children together. Ella Mae was an aunt to my grandmother, Mary Belle (Place) White. Her mother, Jennie A. Ryer and Ella Mae Ryer were sisters. --Pat Gray, 5 Jun 2017
