Obituary

DIES.

Aug. 24th, Mr. Jackson M. Parsons, son of James A. and Lydia H. Parsons, of Essex.

He was a member of the 3rd Mass. Battery, and was in the seven days fight before Richmond. When all his comrades save one beside himself had fallen, he loaded the gun and fired it, then spiked it and escaped. He died of fever on his way home.
