Does anyone know of a Mary Alice Reed who was the biological daughter of Ena Josephine (Auten) (?) Tish (father unknown)? Mary Alice is purported to have been born "out of wedlock" to Ena prior to her marriage to Edward Everett Tish on 8/24/1927. Ena also had two sisters named Verna and Viola. Ena's parents are supposed to have been Wesley Auten and Gertrude (Reynolds) Auten. Ena was born 11/27/1896 and I know she died in 1991 in Poweshiek County Iowa. I have no idea where Ena or Mary Alice or her family are originally from, however, I do know that Ena and Ed resided in Searsboro (Sugar Creek Township), Poweshiek County Iowa until about 1977 (1979) when Ed was killed by his own tractor while working on their farm. I have a little more information that I will gladly share, but I cannot proceed with further research about my dad until I can figure out this part. Any help whatsoever will be greatly appreciated.
