Mr. Meriwether PARSONS, an old and respected citizen of this community, died at his home in the Poplar Springs district last Saturday and was laid to rest in the family burying ground on Sunday. Mr. Parsons was about seventy-five years old. He leaves one son, Mr. Rella Parsons, and many grandchildren to mourn his deathTranscribed from undated newspaper clipping which I believe is the Banks County Journal. The date I have found in other sources in 11/19/1906. Meriwether Parsons was a member of CSA CO A 24th Regt GA Volunteer Infantry-Army of Northern Virginia-"Independent Volunteers" from Banks County.
