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.  

Life timeline of Henry Parker

Henry Parker was 4 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Henry Parker was 21 years old when The New York Stock Exchange crashes in what will be called the Crash of '29 or "Black Tuesday", ending the Great Bull Market of the 1920s and beginning the Great Depression. The New York Stock Exchange, is an American stock exchange located at 11 Wall Street, Lower Manhattan, New York City, New York. It is by far the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$21.3 trillion as of June 2017.

Henry Parker was 31 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Henry Parker died on 12 Mar 1941 at the age of 33
