     Benjamin Franklin Reish was born on 12 August 1855 at Marion Township, Centre, Pennsylvania.1,2 He married Elsie Letitia Krise on 7 July 1904 at Bellefonte, Centre, Pennsylvania.2 Benjamin Franklin Reish died on 12 May 1922 at Gregg Township, Centre, Pennsylvania, at age 66. Cause of death was angina pectoris.1
He was buried on 15 May 1922 at Reformed and Lutheran Cemetery, Centre Hall, Centre, Pennsylvania; Marriage: 7 July 1904, Bellefonte, Centre, Pennsylvania, United States. Reish-Krise
A quiet little wedding took place at the Presbyterian parsonage, July 7th, the Rev. Dr. Laurie officiating, the contracting parties being Miss Elsie Krise, of Centre Hall, and B. Frank Reish, of Pipestone, Minnesota. The only outside parties present being the bride's mother and Mrs. J. Gray. After dinner at the Bush House the newly married couple left for Pipestone, by way of Lock Haven, Williamsport, and Buffalo.
The bride is the youngest daughter of Prof. W. A. Krise, of Centre Hall, and the groom is one of four brothers who took Horace Greely's advice, "Go west, young man, and grow up with the country."
He first located in Illinois, and when land advanced in price sold going farther west, doing the same thing until he reached his present home. At present he is conducting a real estate office in Pipestone, a town of about 11,000 population, and overseeing his farm near by.

Obituary - Benjamin Franklin Reish died very suddenly at his home, near Spring Mills, early Friday morning. He had been complaining for a few days, but nothing serious was anticipated. Early Friday morning he awakened his wife and asked that she prepare him a warm drink, and while Mrs. Reish was in the act of fulfilling his wish, she heard him fall. Rushing to his side she gave him the comfort she could, and then called neighbors and summoned a physician. Before medical aid could be given, life had passed out.
Mr. Reish was born in Marion township and was aged sixty-seven years. He is survived by a wife, whose maiden name was Miss Elsie Krise, and two children - Rexford and Vida. A sister also survives.
Interment was made at Centre Hall Monday Morning, Rev. M. C. Drumm and Rev. J. M. Kirkpatrick, officiating.
Place of death: George's Valley, Centre, Pennsylvania, United States.

Mr. and Mrs. Reish are the parents of Eugene Paget Reish (1905 - 1905, lived one day); Rexford Hunt Reish (1907- 1983); Vida Wilkens Reish (1910 - 1938).1,2
