After an illness from cancer, the
inception ol which tlntesfroni May.
1903, Mrs. William II. Reed sue
climbed on Saturday lust to the in
sidious disease. The end came
about 2 o'clock p. m. when nil the
family .and relatives were gathered
about the bedside Although the
first symptoms of the growth which
ended her life, developed over a
year ago, Mrs. Reed felt no ill
effects fiom her malady until about
five or six mouths ago. She has
since suffered more or less from her
trouble, but stoutly refused to un
dergo an operation to the last. She
has always led on active lile and
up to a few weeks of her dea"th,
performed in her small cottage the
housework for herself and her
elder brother. She was 76 years
and eight months of age at the
time of her death, and during her
lifetime has been prominently iden
tified with the church and early
missionary work in the Islands.
The funeral which took place
from Haili Church was largely at
tended. Rev. S. I.. Desha presid
ed nnd delivered a few remarks in
Hawaiian, commenting upon the
life and character of the deceased,
and Rev. C. E. Shields preached
the funeral sermon. The interment
took place at the Houiclaui ceme-
tray. The pall bearers were J. W.
Mason, Allen S. Wall, W. S. Terry.
R. A. Lyman, Sr., Win. B. Nai
lima and John Kaikapu.
Born December 20, 1S27, at
Aberdour, near Edinburgh, Scot
land Jane Stobie was the youngest
of fourteen children. When
eighteen years of age, she removed
with her parents to Quincy, Illinois
where she attended and graduated
from the Quincy Mission Institute
which for many years educated
young men and women for mission
ary work. While attending this
educational institution, she became
acquainted with Rev. William C.
Shipman, whom she married in
1853. The following year, Mr.
and Mrs. Shipman were selected by
the American Board for missionary
work in the Micronesia Islands,
and sailed from Boston in Tune.
1854, for the Hawaiian Islands,
which was just beginning to be
opened to the Christianizing in
fluence of the missionaries. Upon
their arrival at Lahaina, in October
there was no vessel going in the
direction of their destination, and
they were compelled to remain 'On
Maui until spring.
Owing to the death of Rev.
Kinney, who was conducting a
mission at Puiinliiu, Kau, the
Hawaiian Board tendered the va
cancy to Mr. and Mrs. Shipman,
who accepted the post and removed
to Hawaii. Here Mr. Shipman
preached the Gospel and educated
the natives in pursuits of agriculture
aud manual labor. Large quanti
ties of wheat were 'raised on the
higher elevations of Kau which un
der the supervision of Mr. Shipman,
was harvested and cured by the
natives and shipped to California.
Shingles hewn from the forests was
another of theindustries inaugurated
by these missionary workers. For
six years Mr. and Mrs. Shipman
labored here, until Mr Shipmnn's
death in December, 1861.
Although in poor health aud
with small means, having three
small children, Clara, Oliver and
William, of whom the latter seven
years old was the oldest, Mrs. Ship-
man removed to II1I0. Upon her
arrival, she opened a school for
boys aud girls where the present
First Foreign Church now stands.
Here as young ladies, many of
the most prominent Hawaiian
women, as for instances. Mrs. Tides
Richardson, Mrs. W. II. Shipman, I
Mis. N. C. Willfomr. Mrs. Mnhv
and others were educated.
She continued to conduct a pri
vate school in Hilo until 186S, in
the latter part of which year she
married William II. Reed who was
a well known resident aud merch
ant in the Island for tuaiiv vears.
Mr. Reed was a wood worker and
cabinet maker by trade aud many
of the enduring pieces of his handi
w'oik are to be found in the homes
of the old residents iu Hilo and
:' :l :..&!. fr ...it-. J&r. ..ArUJ - r..,,v,.,
vicinity For many years he kept
a general merchandise store in the
building nt the foot of Waianueiiue
street, now occupied ns the United
Stales post office. Mr. and Mis.
Reed resided iu the homestead re
cently oceupi-d by J. W. Mason
and family. The Reeds made two
journeys bn'ek to the United Slates,
one in 1872 to install William and
Ollic Shipman iu collage and laler
in 1877, when the daughter Clara
Shipman. the late Mrs. L. A. Thurs
ton, was taken to Andover, Mass.
to le educated.
William II. Reed died in Ililo in
November, 1880, and at the time of I
his death left considerable property
to his widow and children. Reed's 1
Island, now Riverside Park, and J
Reed's Bay, both of which bear his
name were part of his estate.
There were no children by the
union with Mr. Reed, but by her
former marriage to Rev. William C.
bliipmnn, tuerc were tlitec children,
two sons, William II. and Oliver,
and a daughter, Clara, who subse
quently married L,. A. Thurston,
After Mr. Reed's death, Mrs.
Reed lived for many years with her
son William at the Shipman home
near Hilo on the Volcano road. For
the past five years, however, Mrs.
Reed has resided in a small cotlaee
with her brother Alexander Stobie,
adjoining the Reed premises on
Waianuenuc street. Besides her
two sons, William and Ollic Ship
man, only her brother from her im
mediate family survive her. Mr.
Alexander Stobie, the father of Col.
C. A. Stobie, is vigorously active
and iu good health at the advanced
age of eighty years.
