REED, Miss Daisy (see also NEFF, Mr. Callie

"TWO LARGE FUNERALS - When No. 12's Victims Were Laid to Rest-Two of the saddest and largest funerals occurring in this community for some time took place last Friday when Miss Daisy Reed and Mr. Callie Neff, the victims of B & O, passenger train No. 12, were laid to rest. The funeral of Miss Reed, the 22-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Reed, of Bloomington, Md., took place Friday morning, the funeral cortège coming down on the eleven o'clock Western Maryland train, the services being held in St. Peter's Catholic church, her pastor, Rev. Thos. E. Gallagher, officiating and celebrating High Mass. The attendance was large, many meeting the train and escorting the remains to the church, and thence to its lasting resting place. The floral tributes were magnificent, representing the love, esteem and high regard in which the deceased was held by her friends, companions, and acquaintances. Miss Reed was of a gentle, pleasant and social disposition and had a large circle of friends who join the family in mourning their great loss. The funeral of Callie Franklin Neff, the companion of Miss Reed in the sad accident, took place Friday afternoon from St. John's Methodist Episcopal church, South, Ashfiend street, the pastor, Rev. H. L. Hout, officiating. The Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and Fraternal Order of Eagles, of which he was a member, attended in a body and had charge of the funeral arrangements, the pall-bearers being selected from their number. The two orders were very attentive to the bereaved ones on this sad occasion, which was much appreciated and for which the family-especially the grieved mother-express many thanks. The attendance of sympathetic friends was so large that building was crowded. The floral tributes of respect were very numerous, many large and fine pieces being among the collection. Mr. Neff was an industrious, kind and generous young man, kind to all and especially to his mother, who is heartbroken over his sad and sudden death. Among friends in attendance from out of town were: Mrs. J. W. Perry, Mrs. George Grimes and daughter, Mrs. C.W. Grimes, Attorney R.A.L. Dick, George Marker and J. A. Nev of Cumberland; Mrs. Thomas Bone, of Clarksburg; Mrs. Lucy A. Lashbaugh, of Frostburg; Mr. and Mrs. John W. Burke, Mrs. D.T. Greenwade, of Keyser, and many others whose names we could not learn."

REED, Eliza Jane

Eliza Jane Reed was born Oct. 8, 1823, died Oct 20, 1913*, aged 85 years and 12 days. It was her earnest wish to live till her birthday. The infirmities incident to old age had confined her to her bed but a few days when the spark of life went out. In 1882 she married Dr. J. A. Lemon and thus happily ended a courtship begun in her youth. They lived happily together until the Dr.'s death a few years ago. She was a devoted member of the Presbyterian church. Few women were better known in this whole region of country than deceased, familiarly called "Aunt Eliza." She was a type of the old time hospitable lady, whom everybody esteemed and respected: original in character, shrewd judge of human nature, close observer and retentive memory, independent in thought, honest in conviction and plain in speech. She was a woman of great energy and her habit of industry manifested itself almost to the last. Interment on the home burying ground, with a short service by the pastor.
