The family moved to Day county, what is now Ellis county, ten years ago, Mr. Reed died August 21st, 1909, and was laid to rest in the cemetery near their home. Mrs. Reed kept the home together and continued to live on the homestead until severe illness compelled her to go the hospital, where death claimed her.

Not for her our tears! rather let us crown her grave with garlands, few of us will live as long or as well, and fewer yet will the Angel of Death greet with such a loving touch.
