Waterloo Reporter:—Jesse, son of Mrs. Dan’l Parsons, of this city, died at Waverly on Tuesday, the result of injuries received in a fall from a horse on Sunday night. Jesse was employed at Bowman Bros', stock farm, and had ridden a horse from the farm into the city to visit his brother George, who resides there. Young Parsons had left for home about 9:30 in the evening, and on Monday morning was found lying beside the road near the house on the farm. The horse had stayed with him until found.
