Thank you for the information. What I have is from one of Almon James Forister's daughters. She was the only one in our family to know anything.

Do you know anything about David Forister's parents?

This is what I know:
D. H. Forrester born ca.1850 in Alabama. Married Sarah Jane Richey, 3 Oct. 1872 in Jefferson Co., AL. She was born ca. 1853 in Alabama and possibly had a brother named Curry Richie born ca. 1863. He was listed on a census record with this family.

Their children:
Setta "settie" Forister
Almon James Forister (My dh's line)
Robert Forrester
David Hubbard Forister
Curry Ellis Forister

It's believed that D.H. Forrester may have been born in Morgan Co., Alabama to a James Braxton Forrister and Sarah Brogden.


Martha S.
Olevia B.
Mary F.
Seaborn R.
Sarah W.
David H.
Christena M.
Hannah E.
Ellen A.
Morrison A.E.
Jefferson William

I'm not sure about this line. I have tried to follow them from Morgan Co., to Tuscaloosa but lose them in between some years before they make it to Tuscaloosa.
Anything else you might could add would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
