This reunion of the descendants of John Richard Whitehead and Sallie Hunt Graves Whitehead was held in 1984 at the John Richard Whitehead home, as a 75th-year commemoration of an earlier family gathering. The house, at 335 South Main Street, Chatham, was at the time of the 1984 reunion owned by John Hurt and Mary Grubb Whitehead. Since 1987 been the structure has been known as "The House of Laird," and is now owned and operated by Chatham Hall prep school as a hospitality and meeting facility for the institution.
