World War I Soldiers Remembered: Eddie Clay Parrish

10 Aug

Eddie Clay Parrish

Eddie Clay Parrish was born March 24, 1887. His father was Andrew L. Parrish and his mother was Mary Frances Singleton.

He was a private first class but we don’t know much about his time in the military because he did not fill out his questionnaire after the war.

He returned to Goochland after the war and married Lillian Irene Griffin and started a family. He passed away on July 24, 1965 and is buried in the Ragland Memorial Cemetery in Sandy Hook.

If you have any photographs of World War I service men and women from Goochland, please contact the Goochland County Historical Society. We would love to scan your photographs and add them to the World War I Commemorative Collection. Contact us at 804-556-3966 or at
