The Holton Recorder
October 29, 1908

Harvey Parkhurst was born in Emmett, Calhoun county, Michigan, March 20, 1836. He was the third of seven children, two of whom survive him, B. T. Parkhurst of Holton and Josiah Parkhurst of
Delta, Colorado. In 1859 he moved with his parents to Kansas and settled on a farm 4 miles southwest of Holton which is still owned by his brother, B. T. Parkhurst. He remained with his parents for a short time and then returned to Michigan to complete his education. On returning to Kansas he again settled on the farm remaining til death of his parents, when moved to Holton and for a number of years was engaged in the feed and livery business locating just west of the City Hotel where the present livery stable stands. On May 1, 1875 he was united in marriage with Mary A. Harrison of Holton. To this union were born five children, Harvey J., William, Mattie and Lulah Parkhurst and Mrs. Minnie Osborn, all of whom survive him. In the fall of 1890 he moved with his family to a farm four miles south of Holton where he lived until the time of his death. For nearly eighteen years he has been in poor health, having received sunstroke the first summer after moving to the farm. After recovering somewhat from the effects of the stroke he again endeavored to take up his farm work and was again overcome. This compelled him to give up all the heavy work on the farm and up to the time of his death he could do only the lighter tasks in his home .... the end came quietly and peacefully, Oct. 14, at 3 o'clock. He leaves a widow and five children .... Mr. Parkhurst was 72 year 6 months and 24 days old.
