Reuben is the son of Benjamin & Lydia Ann Evernham Pierce. He is the 7th child out of 11 born to this couple. He married Martha "Jennie" Cleveland about 1872. They had two children, Allen & Edna both buried in this cemetery.


R. G. Pierce, the florist, died at the family home in Falls View Saturday morning at 9 o'clock, after a illness of about two months, his death being due to a stroke of paralysis.

Mr. Pierce was born in New Jersey, July 5, 1849. He moved when a boy, with his parents to Illinois, and from there to Iowa, in 1879. In 1872 he married Miss Jennie Cleveland, of Iowa Falls, Iowa. Mr. and Mrs. Pierce came to Oregon in 1890 and purchased property. Mr. Pierce had worked up a good business as a florist, having been in this business for fifteen years. He was known in this city as an honest and kind hearted man. He was familiarly called by the young folks as "Dad" Pierce, and his death came as a surprise to many of his friends here, although his condition had been serious for several days.

Mr. Pierce was a member of the Oregon City Commercial Club and took an active interest in the city's affairs.

Mr. Pierce is survived by his widow, Mrs. Jennie Pierce; one sister, Mrs. Reynolds, of Iowa Falls, Iowa; three brothers, William B. Pierce, Gus Pierce, Alfred Pierce, all of Iowa Falls, Iowa; Jesse Pierce, of Chicago, Ill. He also leaves a little niece, Thelma Eelbe, who is making her home at the Pierce residence in this city. Mr. Pierce's two children, son and daughter, died in this city shortly after their arrival here.

The funeral services will be conducted at the family residence on Falls View this afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. W. T. Milliken, pastor of the Baptist church officiating, and the interment will be in the family lot in Mountain View cemetery.
