Miss Mandie Parker died of consumption at New Richmond, Sunday, April 22. She was seventeen years of age and an orphan, her parents, James and Lavina Parker, having both died some time ago, and thus at an early age she was thrown upon the world alone. She was not a member of any church, but her life had been above reproach and she expressed herself as having no fear of death. Funeral services were held at the M. E. Church on Tuesday at 10 o’clock, Rev. R. H. Gott, of Mellott, officiating. Interment was at New Richmond Cemetery.
