Notes:  Gladys Crosby Parsons was born 25 Apr 1894 in Moes River, Compton, Quebec.  Her parents were Wesley J. and Melissa D. Parsons.  Wesley was a carpenter.  She had an older sister Ethel, born in 1889.  In the 1900 U.S. census, the family was living in Fruitmere, Fremont, Colorado.  Included in the family was Charles A. Parson, relationship not clear, and Walter S. Parsons, perhaps an Uncle to Gladys.  There were numerous Parsons and Crosby familys near by.

In the 1916 Alberta census, Gladys was living with her parents in Battle Creek, Alberta.  Also living with the family was her grandfather, Stephen Parsons.  Numerous Parsons and Crosby families lived nearby.  Her father was now a farmer.  Gladys was single, 21 years old, and a school teacher.

According to family records, Gladys married James Fergus McNaught on 26 Nov 1916, presumably in Alberta.  The marriage resulted in three children.  In the 1921 Canada census, Gladys and James were living in Ethelwyn, Battle River, Alberta.  They were farming on Sec. 12, Twp. 53, Range 5, Meridian 4, and they owned their wooden home with 6 rooms. Their first son Howard was 3 years old.

Gladys and James returned to Huron County, Ontario, and in the 1949 through 1963 Voter Lists they are recorded as living on R.R. 3, Monkton.  James became the succesive bee keeper to his father Henry on Deerbank Farm.  Glady's death date is unknown.  She and her husband James are buried in the Woodland Methodist Cemetery, Mitchell, Perth, Ontario.
