Forrest Family

Spent some time tonight working on the family of John Forrest and Annie Duff.  I also realized I need to put a lot more time into the Duffs.  Apparently I haven’t visited that part of the family in a while and the records there need a lot of tidying up.

One thing I’ll say about the family of John Forrest is that they travelled a lot.  Lots of cruises and trips overseas for that family.  They also had servants.  They were used to a higher class of living.  They were doctors, presidents of universities, civil engineers, etc.  Many of the kids also moved around a lot, which makes them harder than usual to find in the Census reports.

George Forrest seems to have been married twice, once to an Elizabeth C. “Bessie”, and once to an Agnes.   The changeover seems to have been about 1924.

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
