This Richard Green Park was born in 1862 in Wilberfoss, Yorkshire. He died in 1924 in Ontario and his full name of Richard Green Park is used on the death registration and he is shown as 63 years old.

I know that the 2nd marriage of Richard shows his middle name as Graham instead of GREEN, but this was an error, possibly on the part of the clerk. The marriage registration of Richard PARK to Margaret ABERCROMBIE shows his parents as Thomas PARK & Catherine GRAHAM, but in fact his parents are Thomas PARK & Catherine GREEN. It also shows he was born in Wilberfoss which is correct.

There are 5 children born to Richard PARK & Margaret ABERCROMBIE. In all cases they show the parents as Richard Green PARK & Margaret ABERCROMBIE. There is one other child whose registrations shows Richard's middle name as Graham. But I am sure it is GREEN.
