J. E. Reis.

The excellent condition of his farm of two hundred and forty-nine acres in Jackson township bears witness to the energy and good management of J. E. Reis, who was born in Lee county, Illinois, September 3, 1868.  Extended mention of his parents, George and Margaret Reis, appears elsewhere in this work.

Our subject remained under the parental roof during the period of his minority and on beginning his independent career he decided to follow the occupation to which he had been reared and purchased two hundred and forty-nine acres of land on section 19, Jackson township.  He has since given his time to the operation and improvement of that farm and has erected a number of fine buildings.  He raises a large number of hogs annually for the market and also grows the usual grains.  His labor yields his a good financial return and his farm is one of the valuable properties of his locality.  He also owns stock in the Fontanelle Lumber Company and in the Farmers Bank of that town.

Mr. Reis casts his ballot in support of the principles and candidates of the democratic party but has never desired to hold office.  His religious faith is that of the Roman Catholic church.  His life has been one of well directed industry and the success which he has achieved is well deserved.  In gaining his prosperity he has at no time resorted to questionable business methods, and his integrity and uprightness have won him the confidence and esteem of all who have been associated with him.
