I (Andrew Granger Forson, b 27 May 1937) am a great-great grandson of David J Forson (died 16 Nov 1862 aged 63 Years).I have two written documents on family history - one is transcribed below and the other in a follow-up.If anyone would like photocopies of these documents I can e-mail them as .jpg attachments.
