No kin to family, just from Rusk County, where Tavner and second wife died. Lucy Fortson was a daughter of Tavner (T. W.) Fortson. She married William M. Holt in Barbour County, Alabama and T. W. gave his consent. Asbury Fortson was married twice, both wives named Elizabeth. Believe that he died in the Civil War.
