Peter May Reeves (1824-1904)
P.M. Reeves, and aged and respected citizen, died Friday Aug. 5. Had Mr. Reeves lived to see his next birthday, which was not far off, he would have been 80 years old; at this advanced age, he was attacked by a cancer, which gradually advanced its claim on his life, until death finally relieved him, and a good man was sent to his reward.

He was the father of a large family of children, and at the time of his death was living with his daughter, Mrs. Wood Williams; his other children living near here are, Jas. M., Geo., Frank, Ray and Albert Reeves. Deceased was a brother of the late Uncle Tommy Reeves, an old and respected citizen of Malden. The Merit joins the many friends of the bereaved relatives in their afflictions.

Children of Peter May Reeves and Julia Ford are:
  1. James Macon Reeves
  2. Addie Mae Reeves
  3. William Henry Reeves
  4. Elizabeth Marshall Reeves
  5. George M. Reeves
  6. Frank O. Reeves
