Reuben was the son of Peter and Lydia (Xander) Frey. He was a farmer who lived in Illinois prior to moving to Kansas. Reuben enlisted on 19 August 1861 in Company D, 50th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, and mustered out as a Corporal on 13 July 1865. He was married to Mary Alice Plowman who died in 1884. He married Frances Isabella Baylor in 1886, dying a year later. He died from congestion of the brain, resulting from the effects of rheumatism "contracted in the service". The rheumatism was contracted from lying on damp ground around May 1862 while advancing on Corinth, Mississippi. He is buried next to Frances. His headstone was provided by the government for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans, 1879-1903.
