Harvey L. Parris of Millersburg, one of the oldest settlers of the county, died at the home of his son George, just west of Millersburg Tuesday about noon.
Mr. Parris has been in poor health for a long time, owing to his advanced age but was very active for a man his years. He is pretty well known all over the county, having been active in various ways.
One of the earlier settlers in the county, he was first located at Rogers. He carried the mail at one time when the trip had to be made with dogs in winter, from Alpena through to Indian river. Later he farmed near here and was at one time one of the first supervisors of Rogers township.
Later he moved to Millersburg and for a number of years has made his home with his son George. In recent campaigns he made the run for the Judge of Probate office. He was for years a staunch Democrat.
