George A. Parker, a Civil War veteran, died at his home in Hyde Park Tuesday of last week, after years of suffering. He was born in Sherburne March 31, 1843. At the outbreak of the Civil War, at the age of 18, he enlisted in Co. C., 6th Vt. Vols., and served four years. With his regiment he took part in some of the most important battles and was wounded three times. As a result of injuries received, he had been in ill health for the past sixteen years and for the last five years was a constant sufferer.

Forty years ago he located in this town and married Miss Lizzie Nichols, by whom he had six children, three of whom are deceased. Besides his wife he is survived by one daughter, Mrs. A.M Solandt of Northfield, Mass., and two sons, Harry of Schenectady, N.Y., and Clarence of this place.

The funeral took place from his late home Friday afternoon, Rev. W.R. Hamlin officiating, who spoke very impressively of the deceased, his long sickness, and his war record. Thr burial was in the village cemetery, the bearers being his two sons, his son-in-law, A.M. Solandt, and his brother-in-law, Frank Nichols. There were several floral tributes.
