The top photo is that of an oil painting of Gov Chub Peabody of Mass in 1964. Chub’s Mother, Mary Parkman Peabody at 84 years of age, was jailed after a sit in at a segregated restaurant in St. Augustine FL. This oil painting hangs in the Governor’s office at the State Capital in Boston. In the Senate Chamber at the State Capital you shall find “the Sacred Cod Fish” hanging under the sir name of  Parkman.

The second picture is that of a rendering of Rev. Ebenezer Parkman and an actual copy of his signature from 1730. He had 16 children by two wives (one had died after 4 children) . The third photo is that of copies of his diary located at the local Westborough Library on Parkman St., next to the cemetery where he is buried, across the street from City Hall. He kept a diary for 65 years. The University Press of Virginia has published in book form about 30 years of this diary. Amazon has scanned this diary where in you can view a copy of the Parkman Family Crest that Rev. Ebenezer Parkman had kept (see link below) .
