Hello, I am seeking info on FRANCIS MARION FORSYTH (1843 - 1923) and wife, LUCY OLIVE CRAWFORD (1850 - 1929), who are buried in Mt. Hope Cem., Imperial, Chase Co., NE.
I only know the name of one of their children:JOHN WILLIAM FORSYTH (1883 - 1974), who married MARY KRAMER (1891 - 1919).She died during the flu epidemic, leaving J.W. and 3 small children, HELEN FORSYTH, VELMA FORSYTH and JOHN DONALD FORSYTH.MARY is also buried in Mt. Hope Cem.
I believe JOHN WILLIAM FORSYTH remarried, but do not know who or when.I think he and wife MARY wed about 1910.He was a school teacher, but finding he didn't earn enough to support his family, he became a barber.
His 3 kids, HELEN (b. 1911), VELMA (b. 1913) and JOHN DONALD ("Jay") (b. 1916) went to school at Chase Co. HS in Imperial.Helen graduated in 1930 and Velma in 1931.I don't know when John Donald "Jay" graduated.
HELEN married Unknown STEWART.Helen died abt. 1988 in CA.
VELMA married Unknown MORGAN and I believe had a son named Don.Velma died in the 1950s, location unknown.
JOHN DONALD "JAY" served during WWII as a Navy flight instructor in Pensacola, FL, where abt. 1941 he met and married Bonnie Mae Stephens of Milton, FL.
Sure hope someone knows about these FORSYTH, CRAWFORD and KRAMER families..... :o)
