I live in Ireland and have lots of information on the Parke Family. My Grandmother, Margaret Emily Parke, was a sister of Joseph Parke (born 18th Apr 1885 died 28th Oct 1933 ) who married Augusta Hewitt from Portadown, County Armagh (born 2nd Dec 1892 died 13th Dec 1972). Joseph was born in Drumlonan, Ballinamore, County Leitrim, Ireland. Margaret Emily married my Grandfather John Ryan from Cavan. There are still Parke ancestors living in Ontario and Michigan. I have spoken to Keith Parke (grandson of Joseph's brother Malcolm) and Maureen Savage (granddaughter of his sister Alice). I would love to hear more from you. I have enclosed a copy of the marriage certificate. I am the Kevin Ryan on the pdf file attached.

Thanks for replying, that's really interesting. I had a notion (can't find the document) that Augusta came back to Northern Ireland and died there. Do you happen to know if this is correct and maybe further why she returned?
