Tug McGraw
Frank Edwin "Tug" McGraw, Jr. (1944 – 2004) was a professional baseball relief pitcher. He is often remembered for coining the phrase, "Ya Gotta Believe", which became a popular rallying cry for the New York Mets teams of the mid-60s and early 70s. McGraw was born in Martinez, California but graduated from St. Vincent Ferrer High School in Vallejo, California in 1962. He enrolled in Solano Community College and signed with the New York Mets as an amateur free agent after graduation. McGraw’s boyhood home is located at 312 Carolina Street in Vallejo.

After choosing Vallejo as his home in 2011, Chris looked for ways to build community.

Recognizing a need for Historic Home expertise, Chris created Vallejo Historic Homes Support, with the mission to encourage local preservation and increase our enjoyment of living in Historic Vallejo.

Later he created VallejoHistoricHomes.com, a Realtor website which includes individually selected MLS data on homes for sale, detailed guidance on selling a historic structure, and Historic Vallejo homeowner resources. "This page currently only has my blog but it will soon have all the Sanborn Maps and all the historic docs in my collection. It will soon have a renovation guide (like this old house.com) and I will have videos on how to research including Genealogical research."

One of Chris’s greatest joys is helping his clients find their dream home and then handing them their keys!

Vi Parsons has a life-long passion for history, travel and teaching. As a teen, she taught children’s classes at church. About that time, she began her pursuit of genealogy, when she questioned her parents about her deceased ancestors. She became seriously involved in family history research with the birth of her first grandchild.. These combined interests merged into a joyful journey of studying and teaching genealogy. She received accreditation from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah for her studies in Beginning Genealogy. She was awarded a certificate in American Genealogy from the National Genealogical Society of Virginia. Vi volunteered for the Dragoo Family Association for fifteen years. She documented her Dragoo ancestors to France and England in the 1600s, published books on her Dragoo family history, the Dragoo Cemetery of Marion County, West Virginia, and her great great grandfather, The Legendary Indian Billy Dragoo. Vi co-authored Double Take, a book of short stories of childhood memories. Vi and her twin Violet C. Moore are the creators of Carr Twins & Co.
