John R. Parrott Sabine Parish, Louisiana

John R. Parrott, a successful farmer of Zwolle, was born in the state of Alabama, March 11, 1839, and moved with his father to Northeast Louisiana in the early '40s and from there to Sabine parish in 1854, where he has since resided.

He served as a soldier in the Confederate army, was seriously wounded at the battle of Mansfield, April 8, 1864, after which he was honorably discharged. At the close of the war he married and reared a splendid family, three of his sons being successful physicians.

 While Mr. Parrott has been largely occupied in farming and stock raising, he has lent aid and encouragement to various enterprises and has been very instrumental in the development of the fine section in which he resides. For many years he was a member of the Parish School Board, and held that public position longer than any official in the history of the parish, and has always been ready to answer the call of duty.

His record as a citizen and official is ample testimony of the high esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens.
