3.  Dr James Reeves Traer
James Reeves Traer (ca 1834 - d.1867), partner in F. S. Haden's medical practice [more]. Traer died suddenly on 23 April of alcohol related causes, during a trip to Paris. After a dispute with Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910), surgeon and etcher, JW's brother-in-law [more], over Traer's burial in Paris, JW and William McNeill Whistler (1836-1900), physician, JW's brother [more], made arrangements to have Traer's body returned to England, assisted by a list of subscribers.
