The gravestone dedication for George Parrish, who served in the G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic) from Pennsylvania, was held Tuesday, November 11, on the Niemela farm in Fairview Canyon, Monitor. A Civil War Veteran, Parrish was buried on his property in 1914. At that time there was no stone marker. The dedicated stone was provided by the U.S. Government.
The dedication was lead by Rev. Mike O'Neal of the Monitor Methodist Church. During the short ceremony, Rev. O'Neal read two prayers that were first used during the Civil War. He also played "Amazing Grace" sung at both George's and his wife's funerals on his concertina. At the conclusion of the ceremony "Taps" was played by Blake Baldwin, Cashmere High School, on his rotary trumpet.
After the conclusion of the ceremony, Fred Pflugrath gave a short history of George W. Parrish.
