I'm not the category police. I just hate to see people shopping for cheese in a hardware store. "Ancestral Quest" is a genealogy program, like "Roots Magic" or "Family Tree Maker". This forum is for people who use the program. Your chance of anyone seeing your post is very small.
There are forums for that surname and that state, although in my experience a county forum is better than a state one, and you either don't know what county he lived in or didn't put it in your query.
Go to the main page and click down through the selections to find them.
If you do know a county he lived in, the "Counties for this state" link is small; it is in the upper right-hand corner of the state forum page.
