I have a good many Reese ancestors in my line. I am wondering if Lizette Woodworth Reese can be added. She was a noted poet in Maryland and was nearing 80 upon her death. I have both her parents David & Louisa (Gabler) Reese. I have census information from 1870, 1880 listing her father as head of house. In the 1900 census her mother was head of house as her father passed in 1895. I have found his burial location but have been unable to find his parents. He was born in 1825 in Maryland so the records should be there I just haven't gone to the correct location. I also have not been able to find her mothers date of death or burial. I know she was still living in 1910 but by 1920 census Lizette was living with a younger sister and her family. One day I will know if she can be added to my tree or not.
I will add this notation that I'm finally able to make a connection through the DNA Ancestry program with a new cousin I did not know about. A step in the right direction for sure.
