Poplar Bluff Republican, 29 May 1924
Retired Farmer Died Late Last Night Suddenly
Alfred C. Reeves, aged 81, a resident of this county for about 30 years, died suddenly at the home of his daughter, Mrs. James Robinson, at 935 Maud street, last night about 8 o'clock.
According to relatives of the man, Mr. Reeves ate a very good supper last night, and about two hours later, while he was sitting in a chair, he died suddenly, apoplexy being given by doctors as the cause of his death.
The aged man had resided with Mr. and Mrs. James Robinson for some time. He was for a number of years manager of the large Smith farm, near Hendrickson, and was well known in that section. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Robinson, of Poplar Bluff, and Mrs. Ida Mosey of Detroit, Mich.
Funeral services will be held from the Robinson home tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, interment being in the Mt. Zion Cemetery, near Hendrickson. The Frank Undertaking Company will have charge of the funeral.

Research Notes

Death Certificate names parents. Ida M. Reeves is living with Jessie Reeves listed as granddaughter in the 1880 census. There is a Hattie E. Reeves listed as well as granddaughter. For now it is assumed they were sisters. Ida's death certificate names her father and she is mentioned in his obituary as well.
