  of 1263

John B is the son of Christian T Forney and his second wife, Catherine Bashore (sp?). Christian T was b. 1806 and d. ca 1860. You can find them in the 1850c PA Dauphin Co #114 in W Hanover Twp.

John B is the #8 child in Christian's family -- the 1860c PA /229 Dauphin Co/W Hanover gives more children born after the 1850c. Believe there were 14 children in all.

Please see #938 in the Forney GenForum --- where I gave the ancestry of this line --- from much research over more than 25 years --- some from "Sketches of the -----" by H. O. Folker ---- and much from the various census records, marriage records - birth and death records -- etc., etc. --
