FRED REYNOLDS OBITUARY
Fred Reynolds was born on a farm near Buckley Illinois on September 4, 1876 and passed away February 22, 1920, age 42 years, 5 months and 19 days. His parents moved to Putnam when Fred was about 4 years of age and settled in Hennepin. Here Fred went to school and formed lasting friendships with old and young alike. While in Hennepin, he did farm work and for several years had charge of the ferry boat at the river crossing. When 24, he came to Kewanee and was employed at the Western Tube works. After a year at this work, he returned to Hennepin where on March 21, 1904, he was married to Edna Woodruff of Kewanee, then moved to that city about 15 years ago, Fred again entering the service of the Walworth manufacturing company. At the time of his death, he was a night foreman in the anneling department. On the evening of January 27, Fred being short of men in his department, was making at effort to keep the work going as usual, when he met with a terrible accident, resulting in one of his legs being broken in three places. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital, where for nearly 4 weeks he suffered patiently, appreciating all that was done for him and doing his prep bravely, hoping to hasten recovery. It was generally thought that Fred was doing finely and would soon be well again, but infection having set in, all hopes of recovery were discouraged by Dr. Dean Louis, a specialist of Chicago, who was called and Fred passed away Sunday evening February 22. He was well liked by his associates, and leaves a great many friends to regret his passing. He was a favorite of all children who knew him and was ever ready to do a kind deed and help another. His father died February 6, 1907 and Harry a younger brother died October 8, 1915. The surviving relatives besides Mrs. Reynolds, his wife, include the mother Mrs. Eva Reynolds of Lamoile Illinois, two brothers Frank and Ed Reynolds of Hennepin, three sisters, Mrs. John Reevy of Hennepin, Miss Margaret of Lamoile, Illinois, and Mrs. E.

At times he suffered terribly and many times it was thought he could not possibly survive another attack. But after submitting to second operation at St. Margaret's Hospital in Spring Valley, Illinois, was entirely free of pain . But in too weakened a condition to withstand the other complications which came upon him. And after being comfined to his bed only three weeks during his last illness, passed away 2:30 PM Friday, October 8, 1915. At the age of 4 years, Harry came with his parents to Putnam County.
