William Forrister of Washington Co TN, 1792
Posted by: John Ottinger (ID *****0298) Date: April 30, 2002 at 16:44:22
  of 92

On 5 Sep 1792, in Washington Co TN, a William Forrister witnessed a marriage between Stephen Redman and Susannah Stewart.

In a comprehensive name search of persons in the county before 1800 William's name appears only the one time; perhaps suggesting he was not from that county.

Also appearing on the marriage record are W. S. Lovely, Benjamin Mullan (who perhaps performed the ceremony) and Rees Ross, or a similar spelling. Also witnessing was Jack Sevier.

I'm looking for anyone who recognizes Forrister, but also any of the other names (with the exception of Sevier).
