Jepson Field Book volume 28_122
Parish, S.B. Collecting Trips  He often went out to Palm Sprs. [Springs], Mt. San Jacinto, edge of the Colorado Desert.  On the earlier trips he distributed there desert plants as from Agua Caliente, later putting that name in parens after Palm Sprs. [Springs]. Parish married in 1883 Miss Mary E. Bonsall. He had a decidedly British countenance and was often mistaken for an Englishman. Numerous botanists visited him at San Bernardino: J.G. Lemmon; Dr. C.C. Parry, with whom there sprang up a warm affectionate friendship; Parry was the second to visit him. Then came Asa Gray. Then Dr. Geo. [George] Engelmann and Professor Sargent; and Pringle. All there before his marriage in 1883.  Mr. Parish for many years did much collecting for the Arnold Arboretum.  In 1891 he made a trip to Fallbrook to get Quercus ::::::::: [Parish, S.B. Collecting Trips]  elegantula. I have no record of all the years but down to 1916 and later he was making trips for Sargent. In 1916 he went to Laurel Canyon near Los Angeles, to Catalina Island, to San Diego. In 1919 was his last trip of that sort: he went to Campo and that general region and enjoyed the experience greatly. He was then 81 years old! He must have been after Bursera. It was his expectation to take the stage to San Diego but as the stages come in from Imperial Valley, they were loaded to the roofs with Mexican laborers day after day. So he asked a man with a Cadillac, who had stopped for breakfast, to take him along which the man did.  Some of his later visitors at San Bernardino were Skoltsberg of Upsala, Dr. J. [?N.?] Rose in 1908, Hugo de Vries, A.S. Hitchcock; Forrest Shreve; D.T. McDougall. -From Mrs. Parish, Nov. 1928. See p. 133, seq.
