Research Notes

The photo of Henry Duncan Reaves' gravestone has several errors which may have merely been the result of his heirs not being fully aware of his family history or may have been errors made by the mortuary when engraving the stone. His surname is spelled "Reeves" rather than the usual "Reaves" spelling used by this family and his place of birth is engraved on the stone as S.C.
