Pinned by his tractor, to which he had hitched a mule drawn middle breaker, Henry Parker, native of No. 4 District, was killed Wednesday. The accident occurred near Walnut Log in Obion County, where the Parkers moved early this year, having bought a plot of land there. The plow struck a stump, which caused the tractor to rear back on the driver. He died almost immediately.
Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. W. H. Clapp, Baptist minister of Tiptonville. Burial was in Crockett cemetery.
The deceased was 32 years old, the son of Mr. & Mrs. Joe Parker, well known residents of No. 4.
Surviving the death are the wife, 2 children, Peggie Joe & Betty Ruth Parker and one stepson, James William King, his mother and father, two sisters, Mrs. Walter Throgmortan & Mrs. Boss Coplin, and five brothers, Frank, J. B., James, Charles, and Joe Parker.
