About Charles Reed, Rev., R. S.

New Jersey, Pvt 1st Reg, Salem Co. Militia, Revolutionary War.

Charles Reed died on the 5th of Dec., 1843, in Wabash county, Illinois at the residence of his son, Rev. Jacob E. Reed, in the eighty-fourth year of his age. He was born in Cumberland county, New Jersey, on the 12th of Nov. 1760. He was converted to God some timee in the year 1785, and united with the M. E. Church (note: Methodist Episcopal Church in Pemberton, NJ?). In the year 1800 he was licensed to preach as a local preacher. In 1808 he was admitted into the Philadelphia conference, and ordained deacon by Bishop Asbury. In that conference he travelled on the cambridge circuits. In 1830 he was transferred to the Ohio conference, and travelled the Huron, Brunswick, Medina and Ashland circuits. In 1837 he was supernuated, and removed to the state of Illinois where he continued to live and labor with acceptability and usefulness, until his death. Our venerable father Reed died in great peace, having obtained a "good hope" through grace, and knowing that if his earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, he had a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. In answer to numerous questions by his friends during his last illness, and shortly before he closed his last sufferings, in reference to the doctrines of the M. E. Church, as he understood them, and had for many years preached them, he said, "I have nothing to retract". The love of God manifest in the gift of his Son for the salvation of a lost and ruined world and the atonement made by Jesus Christ, were the themes on which he chiefly delighted to converse and preach. "He was a good man, full of faith and the Holy Ghost." He rests from his labours and his works do follow him.
