Ringgold Record, 1898

DEATH of NOAH P. PARKER, Esq.

Noah A. PARKER, Esq., died at his home in Mt. Ayr, Iowa, on Tuesday, March 15, 1898, aged 40 years, 7 months and 14 days.

Mr. PARKER was born in Tipton county, Indiana, July 31, 1857. At an early date in the history of Ringgold his father moved to the county with his family, but soon returned to the old home in Indiana. There Mr. PARKER was brought up and enjoyed and profited by the superior school advantages around him in that state. He became a most excellent English scholar and fitted himself for business and teaching. But when fully prepared to enter upon life he determined to go to Iowa. He therefore came to Ringgold county and Mt. Ayr in April, 1880. Here he followed various kinds of business as opportunities offered and frequently engaged in teaching and made of it a marked success. On July 31, 1882, he was married to Miss Mary E. STRANAHAN, daughter of John STRANAHAN of Mt. Ayr. To them four children have been born, viz: Cleo, Myrtle, Lois and Ruth.

At the time of his death Mr. PARKER was serving in the office of Justice of the Peace and in the duties of this office gave general satisfaction. He had served in other capacities and always faithfully and well. He was engaged largely in insurance as an avocation and was noted for his promptness and correctness in the management of his business. No one ever suffered losses because of his mistakes or forgetfulness. In early life he had united with the Presbyterian church in Indiana, and soon renewed this profession by uniting with the United Presbyterian church of Mt. Ayr. He discharged his duties in all humility and without any noise or demonstrations. He shrank from all public manifestations of piety, and was sensative, silent and thoughtful. He highly appreciated the quiet christian life. To the writer he often unbosomed his inmost soul and he here records that his piety was real, deep and fervent. He mourned his sins and rejoiced in the love and peace of the Savior. His intimate friends valued his devotional spirit. It was in accord with his own quiet nature.

He passed through a long sickness of six weeks and danger was not apprehended until toward the end. The funeral will take place today from the home and will be conducted by his pastor, Rev. Dr. CALHOUN [with interment at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa]. A wife, four daughters and a large circle of friends will mourn his death.
