I have been made aware that my great grandfather, Thomas Monroe Reynolds 1851-1920 from DeKalb & Warren Co, TN abandoned his family after being told that his wife could not have any more kids. This would have been around 1900 or a little later but not much later. I found an old letter my mother wrote where she states that her favorite aunt, Certie, daughter of Thomas Monroe Reynolds & Mary Jane Tittsworth told her that Thomas, her father, fathered another child after leaving and his name was Thomas Reynolds also although he already had a son Thomas Reynolds. He was stated to be living in Huntsville. I don't know the mother. I'm the last living member of this family and I was very excited to learn there might be another line still to pursue. I think this Thomas would have been born between 1900-1920. The TM Reynolds family are all in a pic together in 1900 and they are apart in 1910 and TMR dies in 1920 so I think sometime between 1900-1910 would be a good estimate of when the mystery son was born. If anyone can help me identify this Thomas Reynolds that lived in Huntsville somewhere between 1900 and when he died if he is dead, I would love to hear from you. I have this family well documented on ancestry under the username montanapets and select "Armstrong Family Tree."
