The Rev. Charles C. Parsons, Episcopal minister of Memphis, who died of fever on the 7th, was a graduate of West Point, served in the Federal artillery as a lieutenant colonel with distinction during the war, and then became a minister. He came to Memphis three years ago, and soon gained the respect and affection of the community. "From the first day of the epidemic he labored incessantly among his parishioners," says the Appeal, "knowing no rest as long as there was good to be done."
