I found another PETER FORCUM. Remember, my g,g,g,g grandfather Thomas Forcum (Sr) settled in Rowan Co (now Davie) about 1782.Also, an Allen Forcum from MD settled in the area in the early 1800's and then moved on to IN.
But there was also a "Peter Forkum" who was born in ca 1790, raised in NC and whose descentants settled in TN.He was not the son of either the above Thomas or Allen.
There was a "Peter Forcum", who was an ADULT living in Rowan Co. in the year 1790 -- could he be the father of the 'Peter Forkum'?Anyway, this Peter Forcum is listed in the "Rowan Co. Tax List--Insolvents for 1790" and is listed as being in Captain Koon's Co; as having 100 acres of land and as having 1 'Poll'.That is all I know about him.
