The very unique framed photo, autographed by the photographer, shows Jim's humble origins. Contrary to what was reported in a pseudo-biography on Reeves last year, he was NOT born in Logan, Texas. It's true a birth certificate filed by his mother in 1940 lists Logan as his place of birth, but that was done for other reasons. As the Reeves family confirms, James Travis Reeves was born at home on the rented farm (pictured above) between Galloway and Deadwood, Texas in Panola County, August 20, 1923.
