In Years Past

September 23, 2013
The Post-Journal

In 1913, Stephen Reed, probably the oldest man in Jamestown, passed quietly away at the home of his daughter, E.E. Whitehead, 8 Livingston Avenue, the previous morning, aged 96 years, 4 months and 5 days. He never had a serious illness in his life and died after a gradual failure being practically confined to his bed for the last few days. During the past spring and, in fact, up to within a very few days of his death, he was remarkably strong and vigorous, considering his advanced age. During most of the spring and summer, he passed the time on his son's farm about a mile from Kennedy and there assisted in planting and later in the care of the crops. Practically alone, he planted a half acre of potatoes and an acre of corn and later helped hoe both those crops.
