Richard Parrott Dead

Mr. Richard Parrott, an old and valued citizen of the county, died at his home about three miles from town on last Tuesday morning at an early hour.  Mr. Parrott had been in failing health for many months, but had been confined to his bed only a few weeks with his last illness.  The deceased was 74 years old and had been a highly respected citizen.  He was a farmer and stock breeder and a successful one, being a man of good business capacity, and whose word among his friends and neighbors was regarded to be as good as his bond.  He reared a large family of children who are all now grown to manhood and womanhood.  The deceased is also survived by his wife and the sympathy of friends throughout the community is expressed for the bereaved family.  The funeral is announced for 10 o’clock this morning from St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, of which he was a consistent member.

Richard F. Parrott, April 27, 1828 – March 18, 1902.  Margaret C., his wife, Mary 23, 1832 – January 11, 1912.  St. Dominic Church Cemetery, Washington County, Kentucky
