Adam and Esabell Parr, were found in the 1900 US Federal Census, living at 1622 American Street. He had emigrated from Germany in 1882, his wife, Esabell Kirchner, emigrated from Germany in 1891. They married in Philadelphia, sometime before 1892, before the birth of their eldest son, Joseph Parr. In 1910, the family was enumerated in the US Census, living at 244 W. Columbia Ave, Philadelphia. Adam Parr died 19 Dec 1910 at the residence, and was buried at Most Holy Redeemer Cemetry on Richmond Street in Philadelphia.

Adams parents were Charles (Karl) Parr and Barbara Staub or Staab.

Isabell outlived her husband and was last counted in the 1940 US Census, living at 2407 Howard Street, in Philadelphia.
