Ahh, ok.  

Then, maybe another option is to go ahead and add and commit those deletions, 
then checkout the earlier branch?

I'll try that a little later tonight before I try the reset, unless somebody 
tells me that would be a big mistake.  (I guess after I do the add and commit, 
I won't need the reset, but in the meantime, I'll read up on reset.)
