Here is an obit for Harden Alvin Forrester, Jr, my grandfather. I have been having trouble tracing my family back much farther and if anyone has anymore info that might help me out it would be great. I've found census information that suggests that Harden Jr's grandfather's name was John and I know they're from TN, but beyond that it's been hard to find anything.
The following obit is reprinted from the Nov. 15, 2001 edition of the Bristol Herald Courier, in Bristol Va.
