Henry Forson Kentucky 1880
Posted by: Edwin Forson (ID *****1862) Date: December 09, 2007 at 08:00:21

I have found 2 Henry Forson's in Ashland, KY for the 1880 cenus and both came from the same area in Minden, Germany (Minden is a town in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is the capital of the district of Minden-Lübbecke.)

. My great grandfather was Caspar Henry Vahrson changed to Forson was married to Mary (I don't know her surname I think she arrived on the same ship as Caspar)(who immigrated from Hamburg, Germany she was his first wife they had 4 children) he then married a woman named Celeste and adopted her 2 children Clyde & Naomi. Whereas the other Henry had 8 children 4 boys 4 girls his wife's name was Sophia I can find nothing about this family of Forson or what happened to them. I have now found out my grandfather was named George William instead of George Walter as I previously thought. Your help would be appreciated.
