Obituary of John H. Parker, Selma, North Carolina.

Suddenly at sunset, on September 15, 1922, the gentle soul of John H. Parker winged its flight into the silent land. At an age too young for service in the War between the States, he ran away from home in Johnson County, N. C., to follow his idolized brother, James Henry Parker, Past Commander of the Confederate Veterans Camp of New York), to the war, and became bugler in his regiment. He was one of the most prominent and beloved residents of Selma, N. C., where he died, and so large was the circle of friends and relatives who gathered to pay the last respects, that the house could not contain them.

A character strong, gentle, and beloved has been taken away and will be missed in the places that know him now no more, but "to live in the hearts of those we love is not to die."

(Mrs. James H. Parker, New York City.)
