SKETCH OF JOSEPH P. REEL, CAPTAIN, COMPANY "G."

In 1867, which was as soon after the war as his health would permit, Captain Reel resumed his former occupation of a millwright, and superintended the building of several flouring mills in Illinois. In 1883, he removed, with his family, to Cameron, Missouri, and engaged in the milling business there. In 1888, he sold his interest in that business, and from that time until his decease he was engaged in no business activity. His wife died in October, 1893, and he greatly grieved over his bereavement. But his mourning was not to last any great length of time. He died very suddenly, April 2nd, 1896, of apoplexy, at Cameron, Missouri, and was buried there.

He was a brave soldier, a splendid officer, and a most noble-hearted man.
