    Missouri Telegraph 
    • Died, at the residence of his son-in-law, Robert Wright, about seven miles northeast of Fulton, Reuben B. Simcoe, aged 88 years, 2 months, and 9 days. Funeral services and burial at Ebenezer Church.
      Uncle Reuben married Miss Sarah C. Hill in Albemarle County Virginia in the fall of 1825 and moved to this county in the same fall, arriving here in October and settled on Richland Creek. He bought a farm four miles west of Fulton where he lived for many years until all his children married and left him. He then broke up housekeeping and lived with his children.
      He united with the Christian church in 1854, under the preaching of D. Pat Henderson. His wife, who survives him, joined at the same time. They raised eleven children, all of whom are married and have families. The children are: Mrs. D.C. Herring, Mrs. G.C. Herring, Mrs. J.G. Berry, Mrs. William Sacre, Mrs. Robert Wright, Mrs. Jacob Larne, all of whom reside in this county. The boys are James, who lives at Centralia, Derritt who also lives at Centralia, John who lives in Audrain, Henry in Boone county, and Charles in this county.
      Uncle Reuben was one of those hard working, rugged, honest men who helped to make this country what it is today. He was a man of an iron constitution and could do more hard work than anybody. Few men could hold up a hand spike with him at a log rolling. As an axe man, he had but few equals; always in a good humor and ready to assist a neighbor when in a pinch. While he was cheerful and easy to get along with, he had his convictions and when he took a stand on any question, he was there to stay. He was an old states' rights democrat and on these points there was no compromise with him. He voted the democratic ticket for over 60 years. It is with sadness and regret that we see these old, sturdy, reliable pioneers pass away.
      Our readers will observe that Uncle Reuben and Felix Nichols were both born May 10, 1805. One lived here 6- years and the other 68 years, one living 8 days longer than the other -,
      Ebenezer Church has lost an honest upright member; his children a kind and upright father; and his wife a devoted husband; therefore, be it resolved: we extend to his family our heartfelt sympathies, ever pointing his children to the lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world, and that a copy of these resolutions be placed on the church book.
