Greetings, you helpful folks. I've read your notes and hints and tips to other seekers for the last two hours and you are all such kind, helpful people. You are all very generous.
I am looking for ancestors before my GG grandfather William Henry Fortenberry I (b. 1822; d. AFT 1880). He was married to Lyddia Bishop (B. 1829; d. 1880). They lived in Simpson County, Mississippi. Both claim they were born in Mississippi in the census records I've located.
For anyone who might need this information to complete their family tree, his descendents were: son: William Henry Fortenberry, married to Earsula Luckey grandson: George Henry Fortenberry, married to Eliza Lovett Hollowell G grandson: George LeRoy Fortenberry, married to Josie Mozelle Holder GG grandaugter: Sara A. Fortenberry
Any help connecting to the greater world of Fortenberrys would be appreciated.
