As one of my G.grandmothers used to say, "lord Have Mercy ". This has been a most difficult line to trace .My other lines have been easy by comparison ! I'm looking for anyone who can help or confirm the following information .I will start with this :I am not of Forth blood . My Grandfather was adopted into this family .Although I'm not of Forth blood , my Grandfather was raised a Forth as were his decendants .So hopefully you understand why I feel this line to be as much my heritage as my actual bloodlines . The following is the sum of six months spare time work .Here it is from myself going back . Michael Dean Forth . B .5-19-59 , Pendleton ,Umatilla Co. Oregon . My Father: Robert Dean Forth , B .2-5-1937 ,McKay Creek, Pendleton , Umatilla Co. ,Oregon . My Grandfather: Dean Robert Forth , B .4-1-1915 , Pine Creek , Umatilla Co. Oregon.

Missouri , D ,early 1950's ,and Jessie Adell (Jones) Forth ,B. 9-2-1884 ,New Lisbon , Juneau Co.Wisconsin ,D.Sept. 1958 , Pendleton , Oregon . As near as I can tell Henry's parents were as follows: John Forth, B.7-5-1859 somewhere Indiana .Married Martha Ann Lear in March 1875 in McFall,Harrison Co. Missouri.

John Forth's parents were :Abraham Forth , B.1-8-1839 , somewhere Indiana . Married Mary Ann Bullard 6-11-1858 , Indiana . Abraham's parents were: John Forth and Barbara Slover .No origin or history on them. My grandpa Dean was the only chld of Henry and Jessie . George Alvin Forth eventually married a Esther Ellen Johnson and had three children: Evelyne Marguite Forth , B.11-1-1915 , Weston , Umatilla Co. Oregon .
