 Obituary: Death of Mr. A.E. Reed - We are pained to record the death of Mr. Alfred Elkin Reed which occurred at his residence in this County on last Sunday the 21st inst. from the effects a stroke of paralysis in September last and although he recovered in a great measure from this attack he has suffered greatly and almost constantly from Brights disease of the kidneys, though for several weeks past he had appeared to improve rapidly and it was hoped his health would be in a great measure restored.  But on last Saturday at three o'clock he was stricken a second time with paralysis and although every effort that medical skill and attention could make was tried to arrest the effects of this attack, it availed nothing and just twelve hours later he died.  Mr. Reed was born near Honea Path on the 19th of September 1813, and has always resided in this county, having settled on Bear Creek, in Martin township, in 1841 in the residence occupied by him at the time of his death.  He was an upright, industrious and honorable citizen, having, as he said himself, for 45 years labored actively in the work of agriculture.  He was a very successful farmer and during the whole time he did not buy for his own use a pound of bacon, flour or meal as he was a great believer in the independence of the farmer, if he would only raise his own provisions.  During his life he accumulated a good property and has left an example worthy of imitation.  Mr. Reed was a kind and amiable neighbor who had the respect and friendship of all who knew him and whose departure will be mourned by a host of relatives and friends.  His remains were placed to rest in Ebenezer Church Yard on Monday the 22nd inst. after solemn and appropriate funeral services which were attended by a large crowd of his neighbors and acquaintances who assembled to pay their last tribute to the memory of one whose death they lament.
