Searching for any information on the surname FORTH. My gg grandfather was ANDREW JACKSON FORTH (1855-1932). His papers say his mother was born in Virgina and his Father - possibily named James - in W Virginia. He married Nancy Susan Henry (1859-1875) in Gallia County, Ohio. They lived in Clay township, Gallia Co. - On the 1900 census. he had children: Mary Francis(Molly), 1882, mar. Jim North / Martha Louise,1883, mar. Elmer Bostic / William Joseph,1885, mar. Alice ? / Charles Austin, 1886 mar. Bessie ? / Iva Pearl, 1887, mar. Henry Vance / James Campbell,1888, marr. Minnie ? / Goldie Ethel, 1890, mar. Harold Reed / Hattie Ann 1893, mar. Clyde Dabney (Hattie was mar 2 or 3 times) and Stella Susan, 1895, mar. ? Hines. - Andrew's wife, Nancy Susan died shortly after the birth of his last child. He sent his last 2 or 3 children to live with friends or relatives. The baby, Stella, went to WV it is believed to live with an aunt. Andrew later married Fannie Jordan, believed to be from WV and a relative of his first wife. Andrew and his wives are buried at Mt. Zion Babtist Church Cemetery on Crab Creek Road in Mason County, WV. While Andrew was married he lived on Teems (Teams) Run Road in Gallia Co, Ohio. He had a grocery store on that road and I think also farmed . On the census records it says that Andrew was born in Virginia, and his wife, Nancy Susan was born in West Virginia. He is thought to be of Scotch or Irish origin. Iva Pearl Forth was my g grandmother. Can anyone help me? I am willing to share what I have. Please e-mail me. Thank you!
