Biographical data
Name: Reeves, Henry Albert  
   Also known as: Dr. Reeves, Dr. Farrow, Reeve-Farrow
Born: 3 Aug. 1840
Died: 16 Jan. 1914
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth between 17-01-1840 and 16-01-1841. Forster gives birth year 1841. Hans Renette, in Chess Note 10065, gives 3-08-1840. Di Felice has Henry Albert Reeves; Chess Tournament Crosstables has A. Reeves. Hans Renette has pointed out to me that Reeves used the name 'Dr. Farrow' in a tournament at Simpson's Divan in London in 1896. It seems likely, then, that the player named 'Reeve-Farrow' in a couple of events in 1886 is also H.A. Reeves. The British Chess Magazine (1886, p.476) has both 'Reeve-Farrow' and 'Reeve-Farrar'.
