Press Parr, for more than fifty years a resident of this county, died at his farm home northwest of Medicine Lodge in the Mingona neighborhood on Sunday afternoon, January 31, 1937. Mr. Parr was born near St. Joseph, Missouri, April 17, 1802, and was a little more than 74 years of age at the time of his death. His wife, to whom he was united in marriage in August, 1885, preceded him in death only three months before, and since her death Mr. Parr's own health has been gradually failing. With him at the time of his death were his four children, Clum Parr, Cal Parr, Al Parr, and Mrs. E. E. McGuire, all of Medicine Lodge.

Funeral services were conducted from the Church of God at Lake City, Wednesday afternoon, February 3, at two-thirty, Rev. Kobb officiating. Burial was in the Lake City cemetery.
