Reuben Franklin Kitchen was a retired farmer and died from pneumonia/influenza at the age of 83 years. He was married to Martha Jane Tucker on March 17, 1872 in Milan, Gibson Co. Tenn, daughter of John Tucker and Elizabeth Toombs, and his parents were William Kitchen (born in Clay Co, IN) and Nancy Harper (born in Bloomfield, Stoddard County, MO).
It appears that a 16 year old Reuben lied about his age and enlisted at Rolla, Missouri, on the Union side during the Civil War. He was in Company K, 13th Missouri Cavalry, US, from March 28, 1865 to May 13, 1866. His record shows age as 18 years.
