I would imagine an obituary would have appeared in the McClennan Co. newspaper. When you make the request giving his date of death, inform them that he died in Harris County on that date and was removed to Waco at a later date.

From The Confederate Veteran, Page 463
Richard Oscar Reed.
Richard O. Reed, son of James Reed and May Jacob Reed, was born September 5, 1838, in Hertford, N. C. He taught school near Albemarle Sound at the age of sixteen ; but the call of the West was too great, and, bidding mother and loved ones adieu, he went to Texas in 1855. He was married
to Mrs. Nancy D. Reed May 23, 1861, at Salado, Tex. Four children were born to them, two surviving him, and also a stepdaughter.
R. O. Reed enlisted in the Confederate army in April, 1862. as a member of Company I, 17th Texas Regiment, Col. R. T. P. Allen, under Brig. Gen. H. E. McCulloch, Walker's Division. He was-transferred to Captain Kirby's engineering corps in November. 1863, and was with that division until the close of the war. lie was a member R. o. Reed. of the Pat Cleburne
Camp, U. C. V., at Waco, Tex., in 1892-93, being transferred to the Dick Howling Camp, in Houston, in 1893, with which he had been affiliated until his death. He was a beloved member, for his cheerful disposition and consideration of sick comrades, whom he never failed to visit, warmly endeared him to them. The Veterans and Daughters of the Confederacy of Houston have indeed lost a friend. He died at the home of his daughter,. Mrs. W. M. Stewart, in Houston, on July 3, 1916, and was taken by his children to Waco, Tex., and buried by the side of his beloved wife, who died several years ago.
