Surviving are his son, Samuel Reed Bostwick; a grandson, Marsh Bostwick; a half-brother and sister, Fred and Emily Bostwick; four cousins, H. W. Bostwick of East Bloomfield, Mrs. Caroline Blackmer, George P. Reed, and Mrs. Elizabeth M. Reed of Honeoye.
Mrs. Anna May Bostwick of Dowagiac, Mich., widow of Wm. E. Bostwick, died at her home last Monday at the age of 78, following an illness of two months. Her health had been poor since last March, when her only son, Reed Bostwick, was killed in an auto accident. Funeral services were held yesterday at the home of Mrs. Reed Bostwick in Cassopolis, Mich. Surviving are a brother, Alva Reed, and a sister, Mrs. Belle White, both of Livonia; and a grandson, Marsh Reed Bostwick of Chicago.
Mrs. Bostwick was born in the town of Conesus, but after her marriage went to Michigan, which had been her home ever since.
