DEATH OF DAVID PARKER
Civil War Veteran Came Here in
1882 - Was Federal Employe
David Parker, long-time government employe, died Tuesday at his residence, 1109 East Capitol street, in his seventy-seventh year. Funeral services were held this afternoon at 1 o'clock at the residence. Interment was in Arlington cemetery.
Mr. Parker was born in West Rupert, Vt. He was the son of Col. Joseph Parker and Mary Montgomery Parker, the ancestry of both dating back to the revolutionary period.
Mr. Parker served three years in the civil war as a member of the 14th Vermont Infantry. He participated in a number of important engagements. He was severely wounded at the battle of Gettysburg, and never fully recovered from the effects of the injury.
He came to this city in 1882, and had since been employed in the coast and geodetic survey. When all of the work of the Associated Charities was accomplished by voluntary aid Mr. Parker devoted a good part of his time in its interest.
Mr. Parker was a member of B. B. French Lodge, F.A.A.M., and a member of the G.A.R. and the Ingram Memorial Church. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Jennie M. Parker, and two sons, Dr. F. W. Parker and C. L. Parker of this city.
