The information I have comes from the book written by Donald Formby cr 1991. Most of his info came from Mr.Carl Greenway, (1960's) copies of his notes on the Formby/Fomby have been given to several libraries, including New York, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, and Dallas Co., Texas. There are pages in the back of the book, 'Family Group Records' These records were taken from Mr. Greenway's notes. As research has been done I have tried to add info to the records.One of the pages lists Nicholas Formby married Sarah Akin, and lists their children, and some of their spouses. It has a page for Nathan Formby and Tabitha Echols, Aaron Formby and Elizabeth Harvell, and Eugene N Formby and Pheobe Ann Birch. It has a partial page for Moses Formby & Martha Harris.
"Stories passed down and growing up on the Marcus Lafayette Formby home place, Goshen Valley Community, Cherokee Co., Ala."
Nicholas Formby, who died 1803 married Sarah Akin, believed to be the daughter of Thomas Akin = Elizabeth Goode, lived in Dale Parish, Chesterfield, County, virginia, which joined Cumberland. ( later Powhatan Co., Va.
I have the same info from others, information from Lourie Formby, Joe Stephens etc, their info comes from Burks Gen/History.
For now I am going to leave Sarah (Ann) Akin as the wife of Nicholas Formby.
