DEATH OF MRS. T. S. PARVIN
Nov. 28, ’96 (hand written)
Col Horton is in receipt of a message from N.R. Parvin, at Cedar Rapids, announcing that the funeral of his mother, Mrs. T.S. Parvin, will take place at Iowa city, to-morrow (Saturday) at 4 o’clock. This is the first information received here of the death of Mrs. Parvin. It has been known, however, for some time, that she was in a precarious condition, having been a sufferer of a year or more from a cancerous disorder.
Mrs. Parvin was one of the earliest settlers of Muscatine, having come here more that fifty years ago. Her maiden name was a Agnes McCully.
She was married to Mr. Parvin in Muscatine (then Bloomington) May 7, 1843. She was a woman of excellent qualities of mind and heart and was most dearly beloved by those who knew her best.
