Hi, my name is Randy Foraker. I'm not sure that we're related, but maybe. I am trying to research my Foraker family and am stuck with my great grandfather James D. Foraker, (or David Joshua Foraker), who also at times may have spelled his name Fouraker or Foreaker. It's amazing how often people's names used to change. But, I remember my dad saying that we may have a distant cousin, Paul Foreaker that worked at a TV station in Oklahoma City, and was maybe a cameraman. I think it was your grandfather that my dad was talking about. I don't know if you have had any luck researching your family, but I have found information on Lawrence Foreaker, your great grandfather, who may have also spelled his name Fouraker. I have also found a reference to a Lawrence Fouraker whose parents were James Fouraker and Jessy (Leatherbury) Fouraker. I don't know for sure if it's the same Lawrence, but he died in Oklahoma. I know the James Fouraker is not the same as my James Foraker, because the wife is wrong. But there may still be some relationship. I'd like to hear whether you have any more information on your family and I'd be happy to share what little I have.
