Mrs. Parrott, widow of the Well Known General, Who Knew Chief Keokuk and Black Hawk in the Pioneer Days, Died Yesterday

KEOKUK, Ia., April 27.--Mrs. Henrietta Parrott, the venerable relict of the late General James C. Parrott, a valiant soldier and officer of the civil war who died in 1898, died at 3:30 o’'clock yesterday afternoon. She was born in Philadelphia July 20, 1820 and was one of the early pioneers of Lee County and saw and endured many of the hardships of pioneer life. Mrs. Parrott frequently rode to the camp of Black Hawk and supped with that Indian chieftain’s wife. She was also acquainted with Chief Keokuk and his sons, and her reminiscences of those early days were entertaining in a high degree and she took pleasure in relating them occasionally to her acquaintances.

Mrs. Parrott was one of the most active members of Torrence Woman’s Relief Corps, No. 100, of which she was the first president and assisted in organizing seventeen years ago. For a number of years she had been the chaplain of the corps, an office that was intended should be filled by her during her lifetime. Mrs. Parrott was a member of St. John’'s Episcopal church.

She was married in 1838. Mrs. Frank J. Warren of Alameda, Cal., Mrs. Frank Le Bron of Keokuk, W. G. Parrott, and T. J. Parrott, who resided with his
mother, survive their mother.
