An item found in The Republican (Danville, Indiana) – issue of Thursday, March 22, 1934 – page 1, column 5:


The body of Parker McVey arrived last Wednesday evening from Los Angeles, Cal., and was taken to the home of Miss Etta McCoun. His death occurred almost seven years ago at Los Angeles. He was a son of Horace and Edna Parker McVey and was born in Danville 28 years ago. He was president of the Christian Endeavor Society, superintendent of the Sunday school and a deacon in a Los Angeles Christian church. The body was brought by a friend who had been spending the winter in Los Angeles. Burial was in the South cemetery, Thursday afternoon, beside his mother. Rev. Richard Mead offered prayer at the grave. The father and one brother, Horace, survive, and live in South Bend.
