Soloman Owl was my great-great grandfather. Don't know much about Nettie Reed, but I believe I may have a copy of a photograph of the two of them. They had many children. My great grandmother Dora Owl Palmer was one of them. Several of the other children are still living in the Birdtown area of Cherokee, NC. I would really like to know if you find out more about them. I'll look at my hardcopy material and see if I have anything else that might be helpful to you.
