The Forrers of Noblesville Updated November 18, 2001
About Our Family Research
I have been able to trace the family back to Martin Forrer, born 1814 in PA, but I have hit a dead end at him. Within the Forrer family, there have been several marriages which include Elizabeth Lennen, Clara Etta Heiny, Esther Hannah, Minnie Stehman, and Rosemary Johnson. Clara Heiny's parents were Benjamin Heiny and Julia Lennen. Benjamin Heiny's ancestors have been traced back to Germany. All other ancestors have been traced back to PA. Some of Rosemary Johnson's ancestors include the following surnames: Hiday, Rushton, and Brooks. William Brooks was born in England somewhere between 1724-1753. He was a Revolutionary soldier. Please contact me if you have any further information.
