You got it from your father."Twas the best he had to give,
And right gladly he bestowed it-it is yours the while you live.
But remember, when your tempted, to be careful of his name.
Throught the years he proudly wore it, to his father he was true.
But you'll never hurt your father if you're careful of his name.
It is yours to wear forever, yours to wear the while you live.
Yours perhaps, some distant morning to another boy to give.

My name is Linda and I am the grand-daughter of Jehu Clistus Forrest and Mattie Lu Holley, both whom I never had the chance to meet. Through doing my research I have come to know both of them quite well, and I am proud to say that I am a decendant of theirs.
I give special thanks to Mary Funderburk, Margaret Forrest (Schank), and Fay Etta Forrest (Roddey) for all their help.
I have had a wonderful time traveling and meeting people during my search. I am willing to share information as well as recieve it. If anyone can fill in any of the blanks, feel free to contact me.
There are photos of many of these surnames and can be found at.
