Dear William,
In doing research on my Tolleson line in Ellis Co.,Texas, I came across this info on my gggrandfather's (Christopher Columbus Tolleson) oldest daughter, Sarah Alice. Sarah b.5 june 1864,Pike Co.,Ark.,married George W. Forston,16 Sep 1880,in Garrett,Ellis Co.,Texas,and d.2 Jan 1901,in Ellis Co.,Texas. George W. was born abt.1861,in Salvista,Woodford Co.,Kentucky and d.6 Jan 1918,in Crisp,Ellis Co.,Texas.Both are buried in the Hines Chapel Cemetary,Crisp,Ellis Co.,Texas.They had five children that I know of. Here is what may interest you,the parents of George are Andrew Jackson Forston and Sarah M. Driskill. Andrew was b.abt1830 in Owens Co.,Kentucky,married abt 1854 in Kentucky,and d. 1898 in Pearland,Brazoria Co.,Texas. Sarah M. was b.abt1840 in Mercer Co.,Kentucky and d.1896 also in Pearland.They had 10 children. Her parents were Jacob G. Driskill and Lucinda Riley! I hope this helps. It looks like this may be part of the family you are looking for and may help in locating your Caroline.
I have the children of Andrew and Sarah if you are interested!Contact me if so.
