Mrs. Samuel Ream was born in Shade Township, Somerset County, and when she died was aged seventy-four years, seven months, and two days.

Mrs. Ream was married in 1853 and she and her husband moved to the Eighth Ward shortly afterward. They resided there until a short time ago, when Mrs. Ream went to live with her daughter, Mrs. W. C. Allison, of Elton, and Mr. Ream has since been making his home with the Nelson Blough family in the Eighth Ward. Besides her husband, Mrs. Ream is survived by the following children: David, of Pittsburg; Albert, of Jenner Township; William S., of the Seventh Ward; Rachel, wife of Samuel H. Hershberger, of Elton; Elizabeth, wife of W. C. Allison, of Elton; Harriet, wife of C.E. Seeley, of Pennsylvania avenue, Morrellville; Bertha, wife of Michael Bloom, of the Eighth Ward, and Gertrude, stopping with the McClelland family of Elim.
