Obituary for Jennie (Beers) Reints (second wife of Conrad Reints) which appeared in The Rochelle Herald on August 4, 1897:
"Mrs. Conrad Reints died at her home at Lynnville on Friday, July 30th. The funeral was held from the church at Lynnville Sunday morning at 10 o'clock, being one of the largest funerals ever held in the town. Miss Jennie Beers was married to Conrad Reints on December 31st last. She has been an invalid for several months and her death was not unexpected. Their large number of friends in the vicinity in which they lived regret to see the separation of this couple which started out such a short time since with such happy prospects."
(Note: Jennie is buried in the Lindenwood Cemetery next to (north of) Lizzie Lambert Reints.
