The United States lost a heroine last week. Because of one symbolic act by Rosa Parks, an entire race of Americans stood up for their rights as human beings. Much has been written about Mrs. Parks, but little has been mentioned about her ancestry.
Natalie Cottrill has researched the ancestry of Rosa Parks (whose maiden name was McCauley) and placed that information on the World Wide Web. The web pages include the notes from Natalie's original research. You can find the results of Nancy's work at: http://www.progenealogists.com/parks/aqwg01.htm
