William A. "Buck" FORTH b.1805 d.1878 Wayne Co, IL m #1 Mildred __?, M#2 Elender __?, M#3 Mary __? and married 1875 a much younger 4th wife *Eliza Jane (MONTGAL) widow of *Nelson LEATHERS. *Eliza Jane MONTGAL and *Nelson LEATHERS were my 3rd great-grandparents. I have wondered about the FORTH family. A half-sister of my maternal great-grandmother *Rose Ann (LEATHERS) STOGSDILL was Nellie LEATHERS,(daughter of *William LEATHERS & 2nd wife Emaline MCCORMACK), who married another William FORTH b.1896 d.1940 Wayne Co,IL. I don't know this William FORTHS's parents were. David Alfred MCCORMACK, (a nephew of my *Chesley MCCORMACK & *Susan MELTON), married 1867 Xenis, Clay Co, IL Mary Ann "Millie" FORTH b.1852 Wayne Co, IL d.1921 Wayne Co, IL. I don't know this Mary Ann's parents either. I have wondered if William A."Buck FORTH and his 2nd or 3rd wife were parents of Mary Ann Millie FORTH. I have thought maybe the other William was a grandson by a son of William A. "Buck" FORTH. I search all related surnames of my MONTGAL, LEATHERS, MCCORMACK, MELTON and STOGSDILL in Wayne and Clay Counties in Illinois. My 2nd great-grandparents were *William LEATHERS & 1st wife *Sarah Jane MCCORMACK. My great-grandparents were *Rose Ann (LEATHERS) and Charles Edward STOGSDILL. My grandmother was *Janie Mae (STOGSDILL) b.1900 Wayne Co, Illinois who married Charles Herbert MARSH in Macon Co, IL. My ancestry line going back earlier from both sets of my grandparents by generation groups is in the HIMES link line of my homepage if you care to read it. http://members.truepath.com/beverly/index.html Thank you for your time.
