John Crawford Parlin lived from 1863 to 1948. I found this information
by looking up a species with the specific epithet of "parlinii" in
Fernald (1950). Fernald provides the etymology of epithets, and when
they are based on a person's name, he provides their birth and death
year (Antennaria parlinii is on page 1461).
