As I discovered recently, I had not found them all.
When I first began researching my family history I was fascinated by the stories my grandfather Maurice L. Reed had written about his great-grandfather, John Reade. He was born in New Hampshire about 1812, and ran away from home when he was a young adult.
Three with his first wife Katherine Kettering: James Lawrence, Laura and Ezra (the latter two probably died young)
Four with his second wife Amelia Houseman: John Edgar, Caroline, Gilbert and Georgia.
And with that, his family was complete.
Or so I thought.
Last month I was taking another look at my DNA matches, because you never know when you'll discover something new. I entered "Reed" into the search box at the top of my list of matches, and looked at the results.
When I looked at the family tree of one of those matches, I saw that his great-great grandmother Tressie Reed was born in Michigan about 1853, and married Richard Carr.
And Theresa's 1902 death certificate showed that she was living in Newaygo County, Michigan; the same county where her mother (remarried to Arvi Parmer) and brother Gilbert were living in 1900.
I'm sorry I took so long to find you.
Rest in peace.
