Forth/Wolfe/Barnhart Families of Wayne Co. IL
Posted by: Fritz Kruse Date: February 03, 2002 at 00:40:07

Hi, I have a Robert Forth family from the census info in Wayne Co. IL, Robert was my 3rd great grandfather, born in 1815 in Kentucky who married Mary ____? A daughter, Mary Jane Forth b. 1852 in Orchardville, Wayne, Co., married George Washington Wolf(e) b. 1845 also from Wayne Co. These are my 2nd greats. Grace Wolfe born in Mt Erie, Wayne co. in 1876 married Henry (James?) Barnhart in Fairfield, Wayne Co., IL.

I am looking for more ancestors from Robert Forth back in Kentucky or Indiana, and also looking for his wife, Mary, maiden name and her line. Also if anyone can find the 1900 Census info for Henry Barnhart, with wife Grace, and daughter Mary b. 1899 in Fairfield, that would be great. I lost track of them since the 1880 census Wayne County.

I do have a marriage license of Henry Barnhart and Grace Wolf married in Fairfield on 8 Jun 1896. Grace died around 1905 with 3 kids, Mary, Cleo, and Ada. Relatives remember him called James not Henry so I am still looking to verify that. James (Henry) re-married to ? and lived in Peoria, IL for a time with several more kids. The children to his first wife, Grace, were put into an orphanage in Chicago, where my grandfather Bodo Karll met Cleo Marie Barnhart b. 1900 in Fairfield and they settled in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
