ELDER JOHN REESE
On page 11 of Dr. Wallace’s History of the Franklin Baptist Church: “In 1835 John Reese, an Uncle of Rev. John Reese of Shelbyville, gave the church considerable trouble, the records reveal nothing of the exact nature of the trouble but they do reveal that he was a man of hasty temper; for becoming incensed at some remark, he stalks out of the meeting, remarking to the church members as he went out, ‘I’m no more of you’; and we know that he must have been in the wrong for such men as Prof. Warren Leverette, for the time located at Franklin and other stable brethren of the church assert that they have no fellowship for him. But we must believe that, like Peter he repented and the church restored him to membership”

You ask me about Father! My dear cousin how shall I tell you? I have no father. It is too true! Little did I think when I grasped his hand at the river this spring and bid him farewell that I should never see that dear good old father again in this world. That I should never again meet him till that time when I hope by God’s grace to met him in the mansions of Eternal rest. The circumstances of his death are briefly these: Father reached New Orleans the 8th day of May. His health was very good and he took passage, as he informed in his last letter, on board the “Caspian”, a Red River packet bound for Shreveport. His design was to cross over into Texas with the intention of of hunting a place to locate if he liked the country. The last letter he wrote was dated New Orleans May 11th – The next day we suppose the boat left for Shreveport. Father said that he was threatened with diarrhoea but thought it was nothing serious. That was the last we heard of him till about two weeks ago when we received a letter from the clerk of the boat informing us that “Mr. John Reese had taken passage on board the Caspian, that on the night of the 13th he took unwell and died on the 14th at 3 o’clock P. M. He had cholera”. Such was the purport of the letter. The Clerk Mr. I. M. Thompson, also stated that he had received all the attention in their power. He stated that he died easy and was willing to meet his God. He was buried 3 miles above Grand Ecore. The clerk said he had written to us once before but we never got the letter. I wrote to him immediately instructing him where to ship his trunk and gun and desiring all the particulars of his death and his burial. I have as yet received no answer to my letter.

- ↑ The history of Johnson County, and particularly of the First Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, implies that John Reese was there about about 1828-29. However, the deed of his purchase of a town lot in Franklin in 1832 states that he is resident at that time in Jefferson County, and Records of the New Washington Baptist Church of Clark County, Indiana place his wife as a member of that church in the summer of 1829.
