Dr. C. C. Parry's first wife was Sarah M. Dalzell. His second wife, who survived him, was Mrs. Emily Richmond Preston. His mother and his only daughter were both named Eliza. His second wife's daughter from her first marriage was named Harriet. None of his sisters or half-sisters was named Eva, and as far as I can determine none of his brothers ever married an Eva; so who was Eva?

Wow, you must be related to Dr. Parry! Thanks for your input. I found the information on Parry's wife and the naming of Mount Eva in this book:

King of Colorado Botany: Charles Christopher Parry, 1823-1890
