This is a 1928 obituary on Hallie Parker Adams:


Sister of Abilene Women Succumbs To Heart Trouble; Was Early
Resident Here

Mrs. David Adams, who was the oldest living child of the late Capt.
and Mrs. R. H. Parker, who were pioneer Abilene citizens, died in
Dallas Saturday morning. Her sisters, Mmes. Sam R. Cox, T. M. Willis
and George W. McDaniel and a nephew, George W. McDaniel, Jr. left
late yesterday morning for Dallas and will attend the funeral there
this afternoon.

Mrs. Adams was known by many long-time residents of this section as
Miss Hallie Adams. She was one of a family of 12 children. She had
been in ill health for several years. The immediate cause of her
death was heart trouble.

Born in Missouri, she came to McKinney, Texas, with her parents in
early girlhood and was married there. With Mr. Adams, who survives
her, and other members of the family, she came to Abilene when the
town was just being started as a small trading point on the Texas &
Pacific railway, which had but recently been completed.

With his father-in-law, Capt. Parker, Mr. Adams engaged in the
lumber business here at South Second and Elm street, where the Coca
Cola plant now is located. The Parker family home still stands at
South Second and Butternut streets and is owned by the Parker

After residing here four years, Mr. and Mrs. Adams moved to Dallas,
where they lived for a number of years. They then went to Florida,
having returned to live in Dallas two years ago.

Mrs. Adams was a life-long Presbyterian and an unusually active
church worker.

She is survived by her husband; two sons, Bob Adams[Robert Parker
Adams] of Dallas and David, Jr., of Miami, Fla.; a daughter, Mrs.
Mary Getis[Gattis] of Minneapolis, Minn.; six grand-children; one
brother, John T. Parker of Hurley, N. M., and six sisters: Mrs. Sam
R. Cox of Abilene, Mrs. T. M. Willis of Abilene; Mrs. George W.
McDaniel of Abilene; Mrs. D. P. Woodward of Dallas; Mrs. Betty P.
Kelly of Denver, Colo., and Mrs. J. W. Jack of Beaumont.

Mrs. Jack, who spent three months in Europe this year, returned to
Dallas last Monday and was to attend the funeral.
