I'm doing a research project for work, and am looking for information on the Parsons Family.
R.C. Parsons patented the Hopeful Lode mine in Tanbark canyon, and it became very successful over the years.
Parsons died in mysterious circumstances in Las Vegas, NM. His life is just as mysterious. I'm trying to find out:
What is his real names? I've read Reet and Ralph.
Where is he from? One story says Iowa. He had brothers in Wichita, KS, and in Iowa.
If you have any information I'd really appreciate any leads.
I'd also love to hear from anyone that happened to live in Parsons City, Bonito Lake area when the mine was in operation.
Thanks in advance.
