D. W. Reece was born in Granger county, Tenn., Dec. 22, 1811, son of Charles and Mary (Glascow) Reece; he was reared on a farm, and his educational facilities were limited, having to attend school in a log school house without floor, furnished with slab seats, greased paper for window-lights, and a huge fire place in one end of the room. In 1832 he went to Fayette county, Ind., where he lived till 1842; about 1835 he came to this tp. and purchased a farm; he made occasional visits to his farm, remaining only for a short time, and in 1842, as already stated, he moved upon it. Apr. 26, 1838, he married Nancy M. Wilson, daughter of Jeremiah A. and Rebecca (Stubblefield) Wilson. Mr. Wilson was a very early settler in Fayette county, having moved there prior to the war of 1812, when that region was but a howling wilderness.

(wife of John Whitinger), and James N. Mr. Reece has held various tp. offices, among which is Trustee. He and his wife are members of the M. E. Church.
