Biography Charles Reeves
Charles Reeves (1872 - 1941) 
Reeves Family - Long Point, Ontario
Three generations of the Reeves family were employed as guides and decoy* carvers for the Long Point Company (1866 - 1960) a private duck hunting club on the North shore of Lake Erie. The acreage is now a Provincial park.
Phineas (1833 - 1892), a native of Bristol, England and the progenitor of the family was the first manager and guide for the club. He is well known for his classic hollow Canada geese decoys. Two of his sons, John (1860 - 1896) and Charles (1877 - 1941) carried on their father's work making decoys and acting as guides for club members. Jack (1904 - 1986), a son of Charles is probably the most prolific of the Reeves carvers.
