A note about where much of the material came from that is published in this web site. On August 8, 2013, I was contacted by email by Mr. A.J. Parry. He offered me the opportunity to scan any and all of his material that he had collected over the years on the Parry Mfg. Co., and their related companies, as well as material about the Parry families. I visited him the next day, and accepted his generous offer. What a treasure of information! Since that time we have become good friends. After I had copied his material, he then sent it to the Indiana Historical Society a year later, September 2014, where it now resides.
