Cove, Union County, Oregon

At the Cove, Union county, Oregon, Sept. 19th., G.H. Reese, aged 58 years.

Mr. Reese has been suffering for about six weeks with a complication of diseases which finally proved fatal, altho the best medical attendance was procured that could be had.

Mr. Reese first located in Grande Ronde valley in 1857 and shortly afterward removed to the Willamette valley, returning again to this valley in 1871, and has resided in the Wallowa valley ever since.

A few weeks ago he started for Northern California for the purpose of benefitting his health but was taken sick and stopped with friends at the Cove.

Mr. Reese served two terms in the Legislative assembly of Kansas, ably representing Lions county in that body. he was a man of more than ordinary ability and leaves a wide circle of warm friends to mourn his loss.
