Joe Wiley Parnell Family

I am looking for any ancestors of Joe Wiley Parnell. He was born
in 1900. He married Jewel Deering Parnell in Texas. He had 3 children. He lived in Pampa, Gray, Texas. He passed away in Pampa
in 1971.

My husband, R.C. Parnell, knows very little about his father
except that his father lied about his age so that he could enter WWI.
He served in the trenches. He never went back to his Parnell family.
He never told his wife or children about his other Parnell family.

I certainly appreciate your help. The biggest thing we need now is to found out who his father and mother was. It has been very hard to get a line on my father-in-law's history. He never told
his family much about himself. The only thing
that my husband remembered was that his Dad drove a wagon from New Mexico to Texas. He was only 10 years old when he made the trip by himself.
Thanks again.
