OBITUARY - Dec. 3, 1919 Issue: The Caldwell Press:
"In memory of Martha J., daughter of Stephen and Ann Parrish, was born in Sharon, October 8th, 1845.
She parted with earthly friends, November 28th 1919, aged 76 years, 1 month, 20 days.
She was married to Mr. Robert Parks, June 15th, 1865, by Rev. George Willis.
To this union were born seven children, five sons and two daughters; Van Boyd; Chancy P.; J. Leslie; Malcolm M.; Harley H.; Cora L.; and Rosa A.
Her family ties had been broken twice, Rosa A., September 1883 at the age of three, Chancy P., August 1888, at the age of 19.
She leaves to mourn her loss a husband and five children, twelve grandchildren and one great grandchild, four brothers, two sisters, and many other relatives and friends.
Her life was full of care for her loved ones, being a faithful and helpful partner to her husband, she fought the battles of life with a willing heart and in the silent hour of the night she answered the call of victory, "well done, come up higher."
Mother has gone, we know not the pain and suffering we caused her, but we do know that she bore it all without complaint.
Her life, like that of summer has passed away, but the fruits of it are here, not to be forgotten.
May we cherish these in our hearts and trust Him who doeth all things well." ----------(son) Leslie
