A Tribute of Respect
[newspaper clipping dated 12-5-1923]

On November 30, 1923, after an illness of only about seventy-two hours following a stroke of paralysis, Death claimed James B. PARKER, better known as "Uncle Tobe," at the home of his son James C. PARKER near McKenzie, Alabama.

Mr. PARKER was a lifelong citizen of Butler County, having been born on the old plantation on which he lived until his death.  He was a man of unquestionable integrity, an honored citizen, a faithful husband, a devoted father, and a loyal church member.

He was born Sept. 11, 1848.  At the age of 23 he was married to Miss Eugenia SELLERS, whose death preceded his by only nine months.  For more than fifty years "Uncle Tobe" and "Aunt Gene" shared Life's joys and sorrows, accepting them as they came without murmur or complaint, each in perfect understanding of the other, and when he lost his companion, life seemed to lose all interest for him, she having been revered by him above all else in the world, and notwithstanding the fact that care and affection was lavished upon him by each and every one of his children, life held no charm for him, and he seemed to await patiently the time when he would go to join her.

For more than forty years he was a member of the Latter Day Saint church, his membership being at Pleasant Hill, from which church his body was carried to its resting place in Pleasant Hill Cemetery amid the tears and regrets of many friends and relatives.

Having been a very quiet, unassuming man, probably no one knows so well as his door neighbors just how nearly he lived the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as ye would that they should do unto you." Few men leave behind them such an unsullied name as that of  James B. PARKER.

He is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Ann STEWART of Greenville, Ala., and Mrs. Missouri WEAVER of McKenzie; three sons, D. T. PARKER, W. W. PARKER, and James C. PARKER; three daughters, Mrs. P. W. ODOM, Mrs. Z. K. PATRICK, and Mrs. E. L. BOOKER, all of McKenzie; thirty-five grandchildren and thirty great-grandchildren.
