      Washington Reeder

      WASHINGTON REEDER is one of the pioneers of Missaukee County, having lived here continuously since 1868. When he first came to this locality the country was a wilderness, and only two settlers had preceded him. He took up a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres from the Government, and set to work in earnest to clear it of the thick timber with which it was encumbered. His property now numbers one hundred and seventy-five acres, two miles distant from Lake City. In politics Mr. Reeder is a Republican, but he has never been an office-seeker. Nevertheless, he has been frequently urged to serve in a public capacity, and has held the position of Highway Commissioner. He was Street Commissioner for several years, and was the first County Treasurer, afterward filling the office by appointment for two years, and then being elected for the succeeding term.

      The paternal grandfather of our subject, Moses Reeder, was a native of New York State, and of
      German descent. A man of large physique and fine appearance, he is said to have resembled General Washington, and once, when a little boy, had the privilege of offering the "Father of his Country" a drink of water. His life work was then farming. In his religious views he was a member of the Society of Friends, and was noted for his piety, and also for his devotion to his country. He lived to the extreme old age of ninety-six years, his death occurring in Canada, at the home of his son Emon. The gentleman last mentioned, the father of Washington Reeder, was born in Pennsylvania, as was also the lady whom he chose for his wife, namely, Miss Elizabeth Randall. To them were born four sons and two daughters, one of whom has passed to the better land. They are Charles, Daniel, Harriet (wife of John Potter, of this city), Washington, William, and Selina, Mrs. Charles Reeder. Mrs. Elizabeth Reeder is a daughter of Asa Randall, who was born in Pennsylvania, and was of German descent. He followed agricultural pursuits, and lived to a good old age, dying in Canada. Religiously he was a Quaker, and was quiet and unassuming in manner, just and true to both friends and enemies. Emon Reeder moved to Canada with his father when seven years old, and in 1873 came to Lake City, where he made his home the remainder of his life, his death occurring in the fall of 1885, at the age of seventy-eight years. His wife, who survived him until the following June, passed away when in her eighty-first year. Like their parents before them, they were members of the Society of Friends.

      The birth of our subject occurred in Victoria County, Canada, July 4, 1841. When twenty-seven years of age he came to Lake City, and has since lived in this community. December 25, 1873. he married Wilhelmina, daughter of George and Tigris (McFarland) Locks. Four children were born of their union, three of the number dying in infancy, the only one surviving being Clarabelle Evalyn.. The mother died in 1886, in the faith of the Presbyterian Church, with which she bad long been identified. January 4, 1888, Mr. Reeder married Emma Whitney, an own cousin of his first wife. She was a member of the Congregational Church, and was a most estimable lady. Her death occurred March 1,. 1889. November 25, 1890, Mr. Reeder married his present wife, whose maiden name was Anna Barry. Two children have come to bless their union: Washington Randall Garbutt and Lillian May. Mrs. Reeder is a member of the Presbyterian Church. Her parents were David and Clara Ann (Garbutt) Barry. The family enjoys the friendship and esteem of a large circle of acquaintances, to whom they extend a generous hospitality.
