Mrs. Mary (Mally) Ann Parsons née Middleton—
Father: Saffory Middleton II
Mother: Barbara Crockford
Sweet Aunt Mally we all loved: she was the peacemaker in the family. Her face was serene and beautiful, her very presence dominated the house and the bountiful love she gave flowed like the sun. I remember she always wore a cap - cream lace on silk - with a pansy of velvet adorning it. She had lost her family before I ever knew her. A long chain always hung round her neck with a gold locket as large as half a crown. On each side was a portrait of her two sons who had died long since of consumption at the early age of twenty and twenty one.
