From the Arcadian Weekly Gazette:

Died on Monday morning May 27th of stomach and bowel difficulty, Franklin Reeves, aged 64 years. He was the second son of Gen. Lyman Reeves, and had passed his life except five years on or near the spot where he was born. The farm was bought by bis grandfather, James Reeves, Sr. in 1792. His wife, formerly Miss Estelle Parks, and three children survive him, the oldest daughter, wife of E. H. Clark. Mr. Reeves was one of our inost respected and best loved citizens. Few men bear so good a reputation among their neighbors as he did. He served the Presbyterian Church as an elder faithfully for 24 years, and has also been trustee and superintendent. We truly have lost one of our best men.
