Is your Newman Forestal from Rhode Island? I have just started on this part of my family and I believe we may be connected.I have a Michael Joseph Forestal living at 191 Hedley Ave. ( city directory). Living at the same address is Thomas.I find Thomas later married to Catherine with the following children : Margaret, Newman,& Raymond. Michael Joseph Forestal is the father of my direct ancestor, William Edward Forestal.What I don't know is Thomas a son or brother of Michael. What do you think, do we connect?
