At her home in Nevada township, early Saturday morning, July 11, 1908, of appendicitis and peritonitis Mrs. Reuben D. Gregg, aged 36 years. She has been ill only about a week and was in Austin a few days before the Fourth of July.

Alta M. Bisbee was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Augustus C. Bisbee. She was born in Nevada township, March 14, 1862 and grew up there. She was married at Austin to Reuben D. Gregg, March 13, 1889, and went at once to live at the Gregg farm. She leaves her husband and four children, one son and three daughters, the youngest about six weeks old.

Mrs. Gregg was a woman who had a wide acquaintance in the locality where she lived and few are loved and respected as much as she was. She was fair in her judgments, trusty in her friendship and had many amiable traits of character. She loved her home and labored unceasingly for the welfare of those entrusted to her care. When the last summons came she was ready to go with a good hope of eternal life.

Funeral services, conducted by Rev. C. D. Belden of Austin, were held at the home Sunday afternoon, a very large company of friends being present to show their loving sympathy. The Lyle Congregational choir sang beautifully. Interment at Enterprise.
