Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, January 28, 1888
General Lyman Reeves died very suddenly at his home in Palmyra on Wednesday evening, aged 86 years. He had been about the house during the day and when about to retire at 8 o'clock, he entered his bed room and in a short time called to his wife; but before she could reach him he dropped dead. Aid was at once summoned, but he was past all help, death probably being due to apoplexy. General Reeves was born in Palmyra in May, 1802, and was at the time of his death the oldest native citizen of the town. In 1823 General Reeves was married, and has raised a family of five children: Nelson, Franklin, and Clark Reeves, and Mrs. George Harrison, of Palmyra, and Byron Reeves, of Rochester. He received his military title as a leader in the New York state militia in 1844. On any pleasant day the general could be seen riding about the streets of Palmyra on his old military horse. Had he lived, General Reeves would have celebrated his sixty-fifth wedding anniversary in May next. The funeral will be held from his late residence, on Saturday afternoon, at 2 o'clock.
Palmyra Cemetery, Vienna St.
