Parker, John M. (Judge)

Judge John M. Parker, venerable member of the local bar, who lacked but six weeks of being 94 years of age passed away Saturday morning October 9th, 1943, at St. Mary's Hospital, Russellville.

Funeral services, conducted by Rev. E. W. Faulkner, Pastor of the First Methodist Church, were held at the family home on North Front Street at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon, prominent attorneys and others from out of town points in this judicial District being in attendance.

Mr. Parker, who was the oldest practicing attorney in the State, was active and vigorous both physically and mentally to within a few days of his death. He was born November 24, 1849, near Danville, being the son of the late Dr. George W. T. and Matilda C. Parker, prominent pioneer citizens of Yell County. Mr. Parker's parents died during the latter part of the Civil War and he was placed under the direction a guardian. For a period of nine months, he attended school in Dardanelle. In 1868 he began the study of medicine in Nashville, Tenn., but the following year abandoned the study of medicine to take up the study of law. He was admitted to the bar in 1870 and at once entered practice at Danville, at one time being associated as partner with the late Thomas W. Pound. Mr. Parker moved to Dardanelle in 1889 and engaged in the practice of law, which profession he continued to follow up to the time of his death.

On July 1, 1875, he was united in marriage to Miss Malinda J. Woodard, who passed away in 1896. Later he was united in marriage to Miss Laura Woolbright, of Wing, who survives. Also surviving are three sons and three daughters, as follows: Herbert and Olan Parker, of Jonesboro, and Lieutenant General George I. Patton, now in the Mediterranean theatre of war; Mrs. J. N. Dowell, North Little Rock, Miss Johnnie Parker, Phoenix, Ariz., and Mrs. Clel Gray, of Jonesboro.

Judge Parker was a man of strong convictions, a fearless champion of what he conceived to be right. He was an ardent prohibitionist and throughout his long lifetime he battled strongly against the liquor evil. He was learned in the law and diligent in its practice, and in the pursuit of his profession he amassed a comfortable fortune.

He was an earnest, faithful member of the Methodist Church, and for years teacher of a men's Bible Class. The writer knew him intimately for a long period of years; we occupied adjoining offices; we frequently discussed public issues and public men, and not infrequently we differed in our conclusions. But always we admired his learning, his wisdom and his loyalty to his cause; and we are proud that he called us friend. He has kept the faith, he has finished the course -- a long and strenuous and useful course. Peace to his ashes.
