     Mary Ann Holman was born in February 1855 Iowa. Mary and William Wade Parks, son of George Ballard W. Parks and Cynthia Ann Richardson, were married 9 October 1870 Union County, Oregon.1 Mary Ann Holman died 1 February 1917 , Montana.
     As of 9 October 1870, her married name was Parks (Holman).

          Charles does not appear as a child of Wm Wade Parks on his probate.

In 1900, we find Mary Parks, head, b Jan 1845, Iowa, four children/four living, in Pearmond, Dawson County, Montana.
With her was son Charles, b Feb 1883, age 17, born in Oregon, father born in Oregon, mother born in Iowa. No other children present. No sign of WW.

A few houses away is George Holman, Aug 1861, Iowa.
With him is Lottie, wife, March 1879, Oregon, fb Iowa, mb Iowa.
Two daughters, Cora and Dora. They have been married five years.

Now, known children of Mary A (Holman) and W W Parks include:
Martha Jane, Cynthia Ellen, and Mary Charlotte, identified on WW's probate. Plus, George, born 1874, died 1881.

If you add Charles, that's five children, four living, for Mary Ann.

Understandable if Charles wasn't WW's child, but that's not the question on the census.2
