John Morrow— I lived next door to this house with my grandparents, Frank and Agnes (Napier) Morrow, on Marshall Street before I started school. My cousin Maureen (Morrow) Dugdale and her husband Jim bought that house from our grandmother shortly after they were married.

When I was living there the house was owned and occupied by Morley and Louise Parsons and their family of 5 Morley had a huge garden in the open space between the two houses. Their son, Morley Jr.(surprisingly nicknamed “Dick” or Dickie” despite their full names being Harold Morley Parsons in both cases) died in a freak shooting accident trying to unload a gun at a police checkpoint on Wolf Grove Road in September 1968. When my Dad, who was born on Marshall Street, was growing up the owners were Amos and Rose Robinson, parents of Jenny Munro of Clayton.
