EDGAR REED, 85, BAKERTON MINE OPERATOR, DIES
Edgar Poe Reed, 85, pioneer settler of Bakerton and one of the best-known residents of Northern Cambria County, died at 8:15 o'clock last night at his home in Bakerton.

Mr. Reed's health had been impaired for several weeks, but his condition did not become serious until Tuesday when he was stricken with pneumonia.

He had been engaged in the coal business practically his entire life. He and his son John [sic] P. Reed, operated the Reed Coal Mining Company, operating a mine in Bakerton and one in Somerset County.

Born in Huntingdon County, November 30, 1854, Mr. Reed was a son of Jonah and Ellen (Bradley) Reed. He came to Cambria County in the early '80s and settled in Bakerton as one of the prosperous mining town's first residents.

A short time later he entered the coal business in that locality and continued in that business until the time of his death. For a number of years he served as president of the First National Bank in Bakerton.

Mr. Reed at one time served as a president of the Bakerton School Board. He had been active in civic affairs in Northern Cambria County for many years.

Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Clara (Reed) Reed, and two children, John [sic] P. Reed, Johnstown, and Miss Ellen Reed, Bakerton. He also leaves one grandchild.

Funeral services will be conducted at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the Reed home by Rev. C. J. Switzer, pastor of Barnesboro Methodist Church, of which he was a member. Interment will be in the Dudley Cemetery, Huntingdon County.

Friends are requested to omit flowers.
