Obituary

Heber Parker

Heber Parker died Saturday, July 6th, at the home of his son, F.A. Parker, on Maple street. He was born n Morgan and had he lived till the 31st day of this month would have seen his 83rd birthday. He married Nov. 23, 1854, Harriet Waterman, who died three years ago next august. In 1861 he enlisted in Company D, of the Third Vermont Regiment. On his return from the army in 1863 her moved from Charleston to Barton Landing and has been a resident of here these forty-nine years. He was a carpenter by trade and followed that profession as long as his health would permit. Since his wife's death he has made his home with his son. Mr. Parker had been in poor health for several years but failed rapidly in the last few months. Not since January had he been able to walk from his house the short distance to the village. He was very deaf, and feeble in other ways, but illness confined him to his bed only a week before release came.. Mr. Parker was the oldest man living in Orleans and there are few, if any, here now who have been residents of the place as long as he. The funeral was held at the home of Mrs. S.F. Sargent Monday afternoon at one o'clock. Rev. E. W. Eldridge of the Congregational church officiated and member so the G.A.R. attended in a body. Interment was in Pleasant View cemetery. There are left to mourn his death a daughter, Mrs. S. F. Sargent, and son, Fred A. Parker, and two granddaughters, all of this place. The relatives and friends have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
