I am decendant of those Foristers. They spread from Surry Co., N.C. to Greenville Co., S.C. to Rabun and Habersham Co.s, GA, and other area counties. I have found them in these county census' in 1820 (where available), 1840, 1850, 1870 and beyond.
Personally, I got lost when I discovered that for several genrations the Forister line seemed to name every male "William". I saw where a father named his two sons William, those two named each of their sons William, and there were other cousins named William to boot. In fact the only other name it seems that they used for a while was James. Investigating which William was which got a bit redundant.
