    A successful farmer and stock dealer at Victoria Cross, Kings county, was born 8 Dec 1861 at Murray Harbour North, Prince Edward Island, and is a son of Alexander and Margaret (Dalziel) Reid, both natives of Murray Harbour North.

He is also prominent as a stockman and has taken a deep interest in the advancement of the stock interests of the Island, especially in advancing the grade of stock bred here, he himself having imported many full-blooded horses and swine, principally of the respective breeds of Clydesdale, Yorkshire and Poland China. His farm comprises one hundred and fifty acres, which is well improved and which he has found a profitable enterprise. He is a member of the Independent Order of Foresters, and he and his wife are members of the Presbyterian church, having an active interest in the various charitable and benevolent movements connected with that society. On September 28, 1885, Mr. Reid married Miss Christina M. A. Beaton, a daughter of John and Margaret (Dougherty) Beaton, both natives of Prince Edward Island, and to the subject and his wife have been born the following children: Sadie D., J. B.
