Ted had close relationship with his older sister, Marnie (Margaretha Christine Geisel). Ted and Marnie walked to school together, played tennis in Forest Park near their home, and played dress up during the many birthday parties their mother held for them. Ted also had a younger sister, Henrietta, who was born in 1906. Sadly, Henrietta died of an illness when Ted was just four years old.
