    • He died from a fall.

      (From Rees folder in Nesbitt Memorial Library, Columbus, Texas (original source appears to be from a book "Texas and Texans, page 1712, published 1916?)
      In coming with his family to Texas, in 1849, Fleming S. Reese voyaged across the Gulf of Mexico and disembarked in the port of Houston, from which point he transported his family and little stock of household effects, etc., overland to the frontier district of Austin County, where he settled near the line of Washington County, which at that time was still a part of Austin County.  He erected his primitive pioneer dwelling on the Stevenson League, where the fine homestead of his son, Kinion W. Reese, is now established.  He and his family moved to Colorado County in the fall of 1865, and there they spent the remainder of their lives--earnest, intelligent, industrious and God-fearing folk who lived up to the measure of their opportunities and who merited and received the respect and good will of their fellow men.  Fleming S. Reese reclaimed and developed a homestead farm and gained a fair measure of temporal prosperity through his well directed endeavors.  His political support was given to the Democratic Party and during the Civil War, for service in which his advanced age rendered him ineligible, he was in full sympathy with the cause of the Confederacy, which he supported by every means in his power, two of his sons having gone forth as loyal soldiers in the Confederate ranks.  Both he and his wife were worthy members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, the former having passed to eternal rest in 1870 and Mrs. Reese having survived him by many years, as her death occurred in 1898.  Of their children, the eldest was John, who became a prosperous agriculturist in Lavaca County where he served in various local offices of public trust and where he continued to reside until his death:  he was survived by a number of children, and he was the elder of the two sons who were found as loyal and valiant soldiers of the Confederacy in the war between the states of the North and the South.  Sarah, the second of the children who attained to maturity, became the wife of George W. Houchins and was a resident of Lavaca County at the time of her death.  Kinion W. of this review, was the next in order of birth. Mary is the wife of Spencer Townsend, of Yoakum, DeWitt County; Nancy is the widow of James Styers and resides in the City of San Antonio; Virginia is the wife of J. Pinkney Williams of Yoakum; Martha Elizabeth became the wife of W. S. Woolsey and resided in the Town of Yoakum at the time of her death, June 3, 1915.  Burrel and Samuel lost their lives as a result of the Reese-Townsend feud and were residents of Columbus, Colorado County, at the time of their death; and Walter was a resident of the City of Houston at the time of his death.  Fleming S. Reese, Jr. is a resident of Yoakum, Texas.
