My grgrandfather was married twice. I have a complete list of his second family but have lost track of a granddaughter and her family from his first marriage. Her name was Carrie Elizabeth Sykes Reynolds. She died in 1920 while she and her husband Corban C. Reynolds and their seven children were living in DeKalb County. I have not been able to locate them since that time and since the 1930 Census is available on a very limited basis, I am using this means to try to locate members of this family. I feel certain that some of the descendants are still living and I would very much like to locate them. If you have any information on Corban C. Reynolds (b. 1878), Lora L. Reynolds (b. 1903), James G. Reynolds (b. 1904), Ella J. Reynolds (b. 1906), Ruby L. Reynolds (b. 1909), Carrie P. Reynolds (b. 1916), Cora G. Reynolds (b. 1917), or Mary V. Reynolds (b. 1919), I would very much appreciate any help that you might be able to provide.
