I have my great grandfather Rolly Robert "Cute" Forth as a son of Robert Taylor and Charity Austin. I am not sure of this, however. I have a copy of his draft registration for WW1 and it matches the birthdate and place for a Thomas Rolloa Forth born to the two of them. I don't know much about him, except that he was a barber, a gambler and a ladies man. He married my great grandmother, Gladys Lambert, and lived in Colfax, IL for a time. they had two children, my grandmother Iona and her brother Rolly. They divorced around 1920 21. He was married before and had a daughter, maybe Leona. I am relatively sure he remarried and had more children, as my father remembered visiting them somewhere around the area. Rolly worked as a barber in Bloomington, IN in the late 20s or 30s. I have a couple pictures of him, but beyond that he is a mystery to me.
