Forest Belle Bewley Stith - Kentucky/Oklahoma
I need some information on my great great grandmother Forest Belle Bewley who married Horace Pate Stith.I cannot find any information on who her parents were.I know that all of them are from Kentucky and then Forest and Horace moved to Oklahoma (where I live).
On a 1900 census from Kentucky, there is a Richard B. Bewley (46) living near Forest and Horace when they were 23 and 24.Richard is #209 on the census and they are #223.Maybe this is Forest's father??
However, there are a couple of things that don't make sense.It shows that Richard B. Bewley was married to an Angie who was only 32 and they have 4 children living with them:Wilbert S. or A. (24), Gary F. or T. (10), Wade R. (8) and Enes or Ines T. (1). Obviously, Angie isn't old enough to be Wilbert's real mom or Forests.
Another odd thing:under "years married", it has Richard being married for 27 years and Angie as 12.How is that possible?lol.
I'm thinking maybe Richard was married and had Wilbert and possibly Forest with his first wife and then something happened to her and then he re-married Angie and they had Gary, Wade, and Enes.
This may be completely wrong but it makes sense that a Bewley who is old enough to be Forest's father is living so close to her.Does anyone have any information about this family.Sorry this post is so long - I am just trying to figure all of this out and my brain hurts.lol.Thanks in advance!!
