Obituary-Aug., 1929 (Reprint, Portis (Kan.) Independent) - DOC. #79
Obituary of John Reid:
The following obituary is reprinted from the Portis Independent and
concerns
the life of John W. Reid, a brother of Mrs. Herbert Hakes and Mrs.
O.M. Bulla
of Ames. Mr. Reid was quite well known here through his frequent
visits with
relatives.
Before scarcely anyone of the community knew last Thursday that our
well known
citizen, John Reid, was even ill, his death at five o'clock in the
evening was
announced and came as a storm from a clear sky. Some heart weakness
was the
immediate cause of death. While he had been afflicted with the
disease in the
past, yet it was not generally known that he was in other than the
usual
health. He had not been feeling the best lately, but was downtown
that
morning. Before noon he was taken ill, but his condition was not
thought so
serious until shortly before he died. While he had reached his three
score and
ten, yet it does not seem that it was time for him to leave his daily
walks
here among us.
The demise of John Reid takes one of Portis' best known characters. He
lived
here almost 50 years and few men of the entire countryside were better
known
than he. For years he resided on a farm northeast of town, but of
late years
has lived in town. Reid always took an unusual interest in whatever
he chose
to do. Livestock used to be his hobby and lately he was interested in
the sale
of trees and shrubs. He was an enthusiastic radio fan and picked up
much of
the world news by the radio as well as through the daily papers. He
was well
versed in politics and current topics and did not fear to express his
ideas or
conditions as he saw them.
The following account was read at the funeral service:
John W. Reid, son of Lafayette and Amanda Reid, was born Sept. 4, 1859
at
Charleston, Lee County, Iowa and departed this life on Aug. 8, 1929
aged 69
years, 11 months and 4 days.
On June 30, 1880 the deceased was united in marriage to Minnie V.
Heaton and to
this union were born two sons. Brother Reid leaves to mourn his
sudden
departure, his devoted wife and two sons, Walter Albin Reid of Downs,
Kan. and
Claude Alvin Reid of Colorado Springs, Colo.; and three brothers and
two
sisters as follows: Edward, Rufus and William Reid of Concordia, Kan.
and Mrs.
Herbert Hakes and Mrs. O.M. Bulla, both of Clyde, Kan. and five
grandchildren,
Donald, Audrey Bulla, Ardith and Shirley Reid of Downs, Kan.
The Reids came to Portis about 1885 and remained ever since in and
around
Portis. On Dec. 16, 1916, Brother Reid, with his wife, was baptized
and
received into the First Brethren Church of Portis, Kan., by Rev. A.E.
Whitted.
Brother Reid has always taken a lively interest in the church of his
choice
until the time of his departure.
The deceased was well known in this community as a farmer and stock
raiser up
until a few years ago when he retired from the farm and has since
lived in
Portis. Brother Reid took a lively interest in religious things,
politics and
world affairs up until the very day of his death. His sons both say
to tell
the people he was a good dad. He loved his sons as well as they loved
him.
Brother Reid lived an honest, upright life, was a good and thoughtful
neighbor
and loved his home above everything else.
The funeral service was held on Sat. afternoon at two-thirty at the
Brethren
Church and was in charge of the pastor, Rev. S. Lowman, who was
assisted by
Rev. O.N. Wiles of the Portis Methodist Church. A large congregation
attended the last rites. Burial was made at the Fairview Cemetary
southwest of
Portis. There were many beautiful flowers.

  iii.   EDWIN M REID, b. November 1861, Iowa.
  Notes for EDWIN M REID:
Did not marry.
Per Jeff Reid, son of Rufus Corwin Reid who was the brother of Edwin
M. Reid,
in a letter to Annette (Strange) Carroll:
"Uncle "Ed" Reid was a bachelor and a darned good fiddle player".

Rufus Carwin (Corwin) Reid
Rufus Carwin (Corwin) Reid was born March 30, 1863 at Charleston, Lee
County,
Iowa and died at his home in Concordia at the age of 77 years, 9
months and 19
days. He was the fourth son of Lafayette and Amanda Reid.
His early childhood was spent at his birthplace near Keokuk. He
accompanied
his father, who was a huckster, over the old plank road to the
Mississippi
river which was the principal source of transportation in those early
days.
His first outside work was driving a spike team to assist in pulling
the big
wagon loads of merchandise from the flat boats on the river up the
banks to the
foot of Main Street in Keokuk. For this service, he received 75 cents
a day.
Sixty-three years ago he came to Kansas with his parents in a covered
wagon and
settled in the vicinity of Concordia. Here on April 8, 1882 he was
married to
Ida May Fulmer, daughter of Marion and Susan Fulmer. To this union
ten
children were born, one preceeding him in death. This child, Ruby,
died at the
age of four.
Mr. Reid was a retired stonemason, having constructed many of the
buildings in
Clyde and Concordia. He was a faithful Odd Fellow and received a
25-year
button in this order several years ago. This button has been worn by
him with
a great deal of pride and admiration for the fellowship it represents.
He was
of Protestant faith although he did not favor any particular
denomination.
Besides his wife, he is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Mattie
Montgomery of
McDonald, Mrs. Opal Begnoche of Aurora, and Mrs. Violet Ohlson of
Kansas City,
Mo.; six sons, Reo of Chemult, Ore., Lowell of Spokane, Wash., Marion
of Clyde,
Jeff of Des Moines and Don and Kermit Reid of Concordia. He also is
survived
by one sister, Mrs. Ola Hakes of Ames, two brothers, William and Edwin
Reid of
Concordia as well as seventeen grandchildren and seventeen great
grandchildren.
Funeral Services were held Jan. 2 at the Chaput Funeral Parlor with
the Rev.
Hill of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in charge. Burial was in
Pleasant Hill
Cemetary.
