Obituary

DEACON S. B. PARKER

Samuel B. Parker was born in Lowell July 22, 1838, and died at Orleans Oct. 17, after an illness of about 10 days. He was taken with renal colic and developed inflammation which extended to the bowels.

Mr. Parker was one of seven children of Nathan and Polly Parker. He was first married to Sarah Jane French. To them were born one daughter, and two sons, Helen, later Mrs. J. F. Wright, Maurice W., and Samuel Dana. Mrs. Parker died in 1905. He moved to Orleans in 1906, and April 13, 1909, he married Mrs. Eva M. Hazelton, since which time have lived in their home on Parkside. His earlier years were spent in Lowell. He lived in Coventry several years before coming to Orleans. He also lived in Burlington a few years where he was employed in a shoe factory. His occupations have been farming and shoemaking.

Mr. Parker is survived by his widow, Mrs. Eva M. Parker, two sons, M. W. Parker of Orleans, and S. D. Parker of Newport, and two brothers and three sisters. Ira Parker of Newport, Henry Parker of North Troy, and Mrs. Laura Skinner, Mrs. Emily Smith, and Mrs. H. D. Stannard of Orleans. He was a loyal member of the Congregational church of Lowell and Coventry, in both of which he served as deacon, and the Orleans Congregational church, during the latter years of his life.

The funeral service was held in the home Thursday afternoon, Oct. 19th, Rev. W. R, Warner of Peacham, and his own pastor, Rev. R. A. Hamilton officiating. Many years ago Mr. Warner was one of Mr. Parker's Sunday school pupils in Lowell. The interment was in the family lot at Lowell. The members of George G Meade Post G.A.R. and the Relief Corps attended in a body. The great profusion of flowers were silent testimony to the love and esteem of a host of friends who will miss the cheery smile of one who was always a, devoted husband, loving father, and an obliging and kind-hearted neighbor.

Can I, Can I, give him up, Drink the fill of sorrows cup, Must I, Must I, let him go, Dearest husband, I loved so?
