Obituary--Clark Reynolds

Here is another Civil War veteran who settled in Michigan after the war, this time from Ohio.

From the 30 May 1917 Fremont TimesIndicator:


Clark Reynolds, an old veteran of the Civil War and a resident of Hesperia for the past 27 years, died at his home in Hesperia last Monday afternoon, after a lingering illness with a complication of diseases. Mr Reynolds was seventy-five years old and was born in Medina, Ohio. He was married to Miss Carrie Collins, of Medina O., and six children blessed this union, one dying in infancy.
Mr Reynolds has been a familiar figure in Hesperia, owning a farm in the village edge, he was always busy about it, and never missed being in the Grand Army ranks on Decoration Day. He will be greatly missed by everyone.
The funeral was held at the house Tuesday at 2p.m., Rev. Klerekoper officiating.
He leaves an aged wife in very feeble health to mourn the departure of one who was so careful of her and saved her in every way; also three sons and two daughters, Charles, Frank, Martin, Minnie and Dora. Interment in the East cemetery.

A more personal touch to this obituary than the previous veteran obituary. Perhaps Mrs Robertson had a hand in this one.
