Katherine, did you ever find out more about your Patrick H. Forson? I am descended from Wiley G. Forson, brother to Patrick Forson b. ca. 1836.Was your Patrick his son?I am trying to fill in some more blanks on the Forson tree.
By the way, William J. Forson married Rebecca Groom(s).Her father's name was Wiley Groom(s) and that's how the name Wiley got started in the Forson family.William & Rebecca named one son Wiley G. and he, in turn, named one of his sons Wiley G.We think the G stands for Glenn because the son of Wiley G. Jr. named a son Glenn and there are several Glenn's in our branch of the Forson family.
Thanks for any information...Pat Adkison (My mother was a Forson)
