I'm looking for information about John H.Forney and wife Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Anora in 1900 Census. I believe that John and Elizabeth were married in Ireland and came to the US shortly afterward where their first child, Anna was born in Rockford, Winnebago, IL.In 1900 the family is living in OK (Choctaw Nation Indian Territory); wife has had 9 children and 7 are living.From this the second child, Mamie E. was b. 1884 in Springfield, Sangamon, IL. William (b. 1885) and Elizabeth Pauline (b. 1887) were also born in Illinois, but don't know where in IL.The remainder of the children were born in Oklahoma.
I cannot seem to locate this family in the 1880 US Census or the 1910 Census.I can locate the children in 1910 as they are either married or single siblings are living with older siblings or in a Convent.
I looking specifically for their arrival date in the US, marriage, birth and death dates.John was a coal miner.
Forney can also be spelled, Farney, Ferney, Terney, Fourney, etc.
