Sidney Cemetery records show John P. Reeder died July 9, 1869, age 1yr 3 mo 2 ds.

These sources vary as to the date of death. Believe the Bible record is the most accurate.

Contrary to the above Bible record and gravestone, listed in the William Reeder household in the 1880 Census, Hamburg, Fremont Co., IA was:
John P. Reeder age 17, born in Missouri; son, laborer

The photographs in March 1967 show gravestones for Joseph E. Reeder and John P. Reeder(top picture) and stone for John P. Reeder (middle picture). The stone was photographed and reset in its original location. John's stone was not located in January 2012 (bottom picture). It would have been to the right of the headstone of his brother, Joseph E. Reeder, the small retangle on the ground in the middle of the January 2012 picture.
