David Reagle

David Reagle, of Fairview township, Mercer county, Pa., was born in 1812, in Beaver county, Pa. His father, Abraham Reagle, was one of the pioneers of Beaver county, having settled there as early as the year 1790. He served his country in the War of 1812, and participated in the engagement, at Eric, in September, 1813. David passed his youth in his native county, and de voted his time exclusively to agricultural pursuits. In 1834, he moved to Venango county, and, in the same year, married Miss Sarah Gildersleeve. This marriage was blessed with six children, viz: Cyrus E., born August 2d, 1836, now residing near Mercer; Samuel, born January 10th, 1838, died October 20th, 1846; William, born December 18th, 1839, married and residing in Wisconsin; John Keller, born October 21st, 1841, died March 29th, 1842; Ezra J., born December 19th, 1842, and died in the United States army, in New Orleans, of wounds, in 1863; Sarah A., born August 27th, 1845, and died November 3d, 1846. About the latter year (1846), he lost his wife, and, having a family to care for, he married, a second time, to Miss Ellen Williams, a native of Mercer county. This union has been blessed with three children, viz: Cyrena, born December 27th, 1847, died October 6th, 1848; Amos A., born May 5th, 1849, died February 19th, 1864; Mary M., born May 1st, 1851, and died July 30th, 1870. The deceased was one of those in whose life shone many Christian graces, the courtesy of the lady, the fidelity of the friend, the obedience of the child, and the loveliness of the saint. None knew her but to love her. This was demonstrated by the immense throng that attended her funeral, and followed, with sorrowing steps, her remains to their final resting-place. The consolation of her relatives and friends is in the hope of a happier meeting in the land where parting is unknown, and kindred ties are unbroken.

Mr. Reagle owns a neat little property, consisting of a farm of twenty acres and a substantial residence. He, and his estimable wife, have sup ported themselves and raised their family by their own industry, and, although now verging on the "three-score years and ten," they still labor on, happy by the work of their hands, and joyous in their contentment. They are both members of the Wesleyan Methodist Church, are upright citizens, and good neighbors.

In politics, Mr. Reagle is a Republican, having supported that party from its formation, and having shown his patriotism by sending a well-beloved son to die for the honor of his country, and the maintenance of the principles of his party.
