As we celebrate the Red Sox winning the World Series, my mind turns to my great-aunt Marcia as she was perhaps one of the biggest Red Sox fans I have ever known - she definitely would have loved to have seen the World Series this year!
Marcia was the daughter of Capt. Hiram N. and Ann Elizabeth (Johnson) Parker; born 9 Feb 1888, probably in Glenburn, Penobscot Co., Maine; died 30 Oct 1980 in Bangor, Penobscot Co., Maine and is buried in Lake View Cemetery, Glenburn, Penobscot Co., Maine. She never married.
Cynthia was Marcia's niece (and my great-aunt), the daughter of Edward William and Harriet Bain (Parker) Vickery; born 9 Apr 1895 in Glenburn, Penobscot Co., Maine; died 8 Sep 1987 in Tampa, Hillsboro Co., Florida and is buried in Falmouth, Cumberland Co., Maine. She married Walter Elliot Swett on 4 Mar 1920 in Bangor, Penobscot Co., Maine.
