Heather, your message is the first hope I have had for a breakthrough on my Forbis ancestors. I have been looking for information on the parents of Rebecca Forbes/Forbis who married Joseph Shaw 30 Aug 1817 in Guilford County, NC. I have been told that her parents might be Jeremiah Forbes and Mary Allison, but I could find nothing on them. Your message mentions Jeremy Forbis who married Mary Allison and states that Jeremy was the son of John Forbis. Can you or anyone else give me any more information about this family and confirm my link, or is this all you know? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
