Lucy McQueary Parr, my great grandmother, lived in Shelby County, Nineveh, Clark, Indianapolis and Franklin, IN, her entire her life.
She was named after her aunt, Lucy McQueary. Lucy's parents were Morgan McQueary and Mary Case. Lucy and husband Peterson Kimbrell Parr named their son John T. Morgan Parr after her father Morgan McQueary and then their daughter Mary Parr after her mother, Mary Case. She named her son Wilson Matthias Parr after her brother Wilson McQueary. Her son Wilson's middle name of Matthias was taken from his grandfather, Matthias Parr, and other ancestors of the same given name.
Lucy's February 25, 1908 Terre Haute Star newspaper obituary:
Vice President Howard Sandison announced at the State Normal University yesterday the death of Mrs. Parr, mother of Miss Lella Parr, head of the department of music at State Normal, at Greencastle, Saturday. Mrs. Parr, who was advanced in age, had been ill for two weeks with pneumonia and her daughter had been called from her music studies in New York when the end was seen to be inevitable. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Emma Parr Van Arsdel, a married daughter living in Greencastle. Special music was given by members of the Normal chorus. Several of the faculty and students attended.
She and Peterson Kimbrell Parr were parents of Mary (1854-1879); John (1859-1879); Sarah (1862-1862); Wilson (1864-1944); Emma (1867-1938) and Lella (1869-1948).
