LE MARS SENTINEL — July 28, 1881, pg.4 col.4
The late lamented Mr. John Reeves, whose decease you mentioned last week, the Senior of the Reeves Brothers of Elgin Township, who died suddenly at Seney, July 19, 1881 was born in the County of Kent, England in 1821 [actually in Sandhurst, Kent, England on Jan. 5, 1822]. He emigrated with his family to America in 1853, and settled in Kane County, Illinois. In the fall of '68 he moved to this county of which he has since been a resident. He leaves a wife, [Caroline, whose maiden name is Sivyer,]four sons [being Arthur, Robert H., George W., and John H.] and one daughter, [Martha] the wife of Mr John Trigg of Elgin township, to lament his loss. The deceased was a man of quiet and unassuming character, a truly pious christian, and as he himself simply said, was prepared to meet his savior.
He was held in the highest esteem by [those] who knew him, and was much beloved by many.
