Henry Reed's Grave
of my mentor on the fiddle, Henry Reed, and his wife Nettie.  We went with Henry Reed’s son Gene Reed.  The grave is in
Birchlawn Burial Park in Pearisburg, Virginia.  Their son Watha and his wife Pansy are buried close by.  These are part of a
larger group, all taken by Karen Singer Jabbour.  Somewhat later we visited Quince Dillion’s grave, which can be seen in
another photo group on this site.

Grave of Henry Reed and Nettie Reed, Birchlawn Burial Park, Pearisburg, VA, January 1, 2005.  
The inscriptions read “James H./April 28, 1883/ February 8, 1968” and “Nettie M./March 15, 1888/October 20, 1969.”
Henry Reed’s full name was “James Henry Neel Reed,” and his wife Nettie’s maiden name was “Mullins.”  
The date 1883 is an error; Henry Reed was born in 1884.
