Biography

Arthur Edgar Parker, ninth child of Miles Gibson Parker and Sarah Ellen Williamson, was born 13 June 1885 in Louisiana and died 28 August 1958 at the age of 73. He married Beulah Leminta Jackson on 3 March 1909 in Simpson, and seven children were born.

Arthur followed the Parker tradition and became a teacher in Simpson and Rosepine, Louisiana. For several years, he was principal at Rosepine High School. Arthur also held many positions in the small local government, but probably the one he felt was most important was Justice of the Peace. As most of the community and surrounding area were related either to he or his wife, he was often called upon to hear cases between relatives or among relatives. Arthur was never biased, and pondered every small detail. He believed that every man would someday be judged by his maker, and whatever deeds performed on this earth would surely speak louder than any words of explanation.

Arthur was a gentle, quiet man who let patience rule his life. One of his greatest delights in later life was walking the grandchildren around his farm and explaining the ways of life in his own unique philosophy. Although he embraced religion late in his life, he was no less devoted. During the last remaining years, Arthur spent many hours studying his Bible, and when he died felt he was truly ready to meet his final judge.
