Catherine FORRY 1710 in Hempfield, Lancaster, PA

In Reply to: Forry in Lancaster, PA by William G. Roy of 161

I am a descendant of Catherine FORRY, born sometime between 1700 and 1715, through her daughter Mary SHIRK, wife of Christian ERB. Mary was born 1737 in Hempfield Twp., Lancaster Co.. Also in Hempfield at the same time, according to Ellis and Evans, was John FORRY (Johannes Forrer) and his family. John is described as an immigrant of 1727 on the ship Friendship. I am trying to find out who Catherine FORRY's parents were and if she was John FORRY's sister.

Catherine could be the granddaughter of Marie WARONBOWER Forry (Ferree) since Marie and her children apparantly settled in nearby Leacock Twp. (now Strasburg). According to one source, Marie was born in 1653 and her two sons in 1685 and 1686. That would make both sons the right age to have been Catherine's father.

Does anyone have any information about the sons and grandchildren of the Madame Feree who came to New York in 1709 and to Lancaster County in 1712? If so, I would very much like to hear from you.
