Dear Pat,

Thank you for your response. I would be very interested in learning everything I could about our Forsons as I have also been trying to link all of us together and to clarify information also going back to William Forson, born abt. 1666.

I have so many questions! Do you know the origin or meaning of the name "Forson"?

It appears that William Forson (b. abt 1666) may have been married more than once by some research I have seen submited by possible relatives in New Zealand. Do you know if this is true? Do you know who William's children are, and who his spouce may have been besides Esther? (The New Zealand Research shows a possible Margaret Foster; I thought they may either be the same individual or possibly related.) Are there more children than David, Ester and Zerubbabel? There are records that show William and Esther's daughter, Ester, was born in 1741, the same year her mother died at 76. Could this be correct? I'm afraid my list of my questions goes on and on! I would greatly appreciate any assistance you may be able to offer to help shed light on my understanding of our Forson families and descendants. (I would also be interested in knowing anything about the descendants of Thomas Forson, b. 1837, if you have information about him.)

Would be possible to have a copy of your Forson family tree of which you have spoken, or if you have your records on computer, a GEDCOM (or any other type)file copy to verify my information and fill many, many gaps?

This is so exciting and wonderful to have the opportunity to get to know all the rest of our family members! (The miracle of computers goes on and on!!!)

Thank you again for any help you may be able to offer.

Warmest Regards,
Mary

P.S.: Please feel free to e-mail me directly at mangdn@juno.com if you would like.
