RPPC of Frank Benton Parker, as a baby; possibly son of Everett & Frances (Hunter) Parker of Westbrook, Maine

Real photo postcard of Frank Benton Parker as a baby.  No locale or photographer's name is given.   The card was purchased in Maine; but perhaps it was in Maine only because it had been sent to a relative back in the day.


I didn't have any immediate luck finding a Frank Benton Parker in my usual online sources.  

That said, there is a very intriguing possibility that Frank Benton Parker may be the son of Everett Parker of Maine.  There's a Frank B. Parker born in 1921 in Maine, the son of Everett Parker and wife Frances (Hunter, either maiden name or name from previous marriage) Parker of Westbrook, Maine.  Here's the intriguing part: Everett's father's name was either Isaiah Benton Parker or Benton Isaiah Parker.  

If you have a Frank Benton Parker in your family who fits the bill, or if you know of someone who does, I'd very much appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Frank Benton Parker (b.7 Mar 1921, d. 30 Mar 2002) was my maternal grandfather. I grew up very close to him and miss him dearly. He grew up in Westbrook, ME and then raised his family in North Yarmouth, ME. He was a school bus driver for many years in North Yarmouth and then later a janitor at the high school, Greely High School, in Cumberland, ME. He retired in North Yarmouth and was buried in the Walnut Hill Cemetery.
