Death of an Old Settler

James Reese, one of the old settlers of Logan County, answered the final summons of his Creator Monday morning, December 9, and passed away in death at 3 o'clock at his home in Hartsburg. Mr. Reese was born September 10, 1820, in Union county, Pennsylvania, and at the time of his death 81 years, 2 months and 29 days old. Years ago, when a young man, he came west to grow up with the country and make his fortune. For a long time he had been a respected citizen of this locality. He was a farmer by occupation, but in recent years had lived in Hartsburg in retirement. The end was due to old age. Mr. Reese is survived by a wife and eight children. Arrangements for the funeral have not yet been completed.
