I got yhis info from familyhistory.com board.
mess #23 from Don Wright. He said that William, John, and Robert were sons of Josiah
Forth. they had migrated from KY to SW Indiana to wayne co IL. The info that I have is from a BIBLE page from some BRATTON
papers that I have as well as other sources.
Robert Taylor Forth b abt 1839; d 1903 in
Wayne co, IL; m Charity Austin b 1842; d 1932
in Wayne co, IL. Both are buried in Warren/
New Church cem. Their children were Adelia
b abt 1864; Ellen aka Mabel Ellen, b 1866
Martha A. b abt 1868.
Mabel Ellen Forth m John William Bratton
on 11/11/1885. This info is on film # 1761126 in the Illinois State Archives.
She was b abt 1866; d 1954. I have her will
which was in Okanogan co, WA. She had property in Skagit co as well as in Omak,
Okanagon co. The town was Sedro-woolley in Skagit co. John William was in construction
there. They had 5 children: Orley James,
Archie Israel, John Logan, (He was my husband's father), Curtis Richard, and Francis Earl. I am trying to find the cem
that J. W. and Mabel Ellen were buried.
Some sources say Johnsonville. IL, but I
haven't found verification yet. I haven't
found easy access to info on the Wayne Co.
web page as I have found on the Hamilton co, IL page. My mother was born in McLeansboro
(Hamilton co) and I am looking for source info there on those families..Edens, Fann,
and Midkiff. I am having to go back into TN,WV,VA, NC areas. I hope this helps
