Florenze Forness, aka Florentz Fornes, was the son of Anton Fornes and Catharine Schneider of Uhlwiller, Bas Rhin, France. I am a relative of his wife, Magdalena Stephan, daughter of Joseph Stephan and Marie Eve Becker.
Anton is extensively mentioned in the book:
The Chapel, A Comprehensive History of the Chapel and Pilgrimage of Our Lady Help of Christians, Cheektowaga, New York, and of the Alsatian Immigrant Community at Williamsville, Ny: Glenn R. Atwell and Ronald Elmer Batt, 1979, Town of Cheektowaga, The Holling Press, Inc. Buffalo, NY.
In addition, I would love to hear about his family and descendants, as they qualify for addition to a new website being planned about the inhabitants of his wife's hometown: The forebears, residents, and descendents of the inhabitants of Riedseltz, Bas Rhin, Alsace, France.
I would love to correspond with you, so please write back.
St. Louis, MO
