Birth: Apr. 27, 1858
Monroe
Monroe County
Michigan, USA
Death: Jun. 25, 1876
Little Big Horn Battle Site
Big Horn County
Montana, USA

Civilian, working for the 7th US Cavalry. Killed in action during Custer's Last Stand by Sioux and Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, along with most of the 7th Cavalry.

The son of David and Lydia Reed, and a nephew of George and Thomas Custer. He came along with his uncles to see the action. His official assignment was as a herder for the cattle herd that fed the soldiers, and he was in the baggage train when word came back that the unit was attacking. He immediately galloped forward to join his uncles in the attack, and was killed on Last Stand Hill, along with all of the soldiers of Custer's Column. Had he remained with the baggage train, it is likely he would have survived the battle. He was initially buried where he fell, and in 1878, his remains were removed, to be buried at Woodland Cemetery, in Monroe, Michigan. This listing is given here for continuity in researching the persons who died during the Battle of the Little Big Horn.
