John and Mary's children were: William Brownlow Forrister, Sarah Ellen Forrister, Thomas Henderson Forrister, Martha Aveline Forrister, Susan Elvire Forrister, John Jackson Forrister, John Jackson Forrister, James Edward Forrister, Luther Milton Forrister, and Betty Mariah Forrister. I'm descended through William Brownlow Forrister. John Coleman Forrister was born in Wilkes Co., N.C. I believe I found him listed on the census for Wilkes. Parents Alfred and Isabella Forester (census spelling??). I'm just guessing but the ages fit.
