Obituary

We have this week to announce the sudden death of one of our enterprising business men, Mr. Jackson V. Parker, who died on Monday evening last, and was buried Wednesday afternoon. Our shops and stores were closed and their occupants generally showed their respect for the deceased by attending the funeral services.

Mr. Parker was born in Clarendon, Vt., and came to Brandon when of sufficient age and engaged as a clerk in a store. When his term of service expired he went to the far west and after traveling over New Mexico, Colorado and adjoining territories he returned to Brandon and engaged in the mercantile business. At the time of the rebellion he went out as second Lieutenant in Co. B, Seventh Regiment, under Capt. Wm. Cronan, and followed the fortunes of the regiment and did valiant service for his country. At the close of the rebellion he came home as Captain, and entered into the grocery trade, which he has successfully followed until he has built up a flourishing business. He leaves a wife and two children to mourn his death.
