Jessie Elizabeth Parsons – died 13 February 1910
Alfred Parsons – died 26 January 1932 (Gravestone says 1933)

Louisa Grace Barr Parsons – died 7 May 1950
Alfred ‘Larry’ Arthur Parsons – died 13 November 1974


Births, deaths, and marriages have 26 January 1932 as the date of death of Alfred Parsons yet the gravestone says 1933.  He was 58, which puts his date of birth around 1874.  Martha and William Parsons had a son, Alfred, in 1873.  I do not have clarification that this is the correct Alfred Parsons.

It is, however, easy to see that Alfred and his wife Louisa (born: 1879) are buried here with their daughter.  Jessie Elizabeth was born in 1906 and died before her 4th birthday.

Alfred and Louisa (nee Plank) were married in 1901.  They had five children.


Their son William John is buried with his wife in Greenpoint Cemetery, a few minutes out of Bluff.  Their second son, Alfred Arthur, lies here with them and his little sister, Jessie.  Louisa Grace, jnr, married Stanley Robert Millin in 1928.  She passed away in 1999 and is buried in Waimairi Cemetery in Christchurch, NZ.  Florence Elizabeth passed away in 1998 as Florence Elizabeth Russell.
