Very sorry to learn of Lena's death. She was a kind and loving aunt to me and my sister, Ellen. I knew your grandmother and mother since I was 8 years old. I am 53 now. Ellen, by the way, died last year at the young age of 56. Life goes on.
Over the last 30 years, I have compiled EXTENSIVE genealogical research on my mother's ancestry, particularly the Hawley side, going back to the 1300s. This would, of course, be the same for my mother's sister, Lena. The Reynolds side of the family, however, is sparse. I do have some information, but it does not go back very far.
I would be delighted to share all I know of our common ancestry with you. You are my cousin after all. :) Hopefully, you can further my research. Please e-mail me.
