Dead Fred's Genealogy Photo Archive, a free, fun photo genealogy research web site devoted to helping you visualize your heritage!

Dear readers,

We need your help. 90% of our expenses are covered by donations averaging $10, though not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, we would have enough to operate DeadFred for a year. That's right, the price of a bottle of soda would do it. If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

Comments: Parker Earle (Nee: ) | Cobden IL United States | 1851-1900 | Comments: This portrait of Mr. Parker Earle appears on page 21 of Rural New Yorker, vol.XLIV, no.1824, 10 January 1885. There is a biographical sketch of him on page 22 of that volume. See that reference for more information. Mr. Earle was a prominent commercial horticulturist and president of the Mississippi Valley Horticultural Society. He was born in Mt. Holly, Vermont. He was trained in farming as a youth in Vermont. He attended Troy Conference Academy in Poultney, Vermont. In 1851 he moved west and did some work as a teacher. In 1855 he married and began life as a prairie farmer in Northern Illinois. In 1861 he moved to Cobden, Illinois (where he lived as of 1885). He became very involved in fruit growing. He and his sons had a farm of pears and small fruits consisting of approximately 250 acres. He was also president of the Southern Illinois Fruit Growers' Association and was twice president of the Illinois State Horticultural Society. That is all the information I have on him.
