Notes for Jason A FORSYTH


In 1870 and 1880 Jason's parents reported he was born in Tennessee, but in
later censuses he reported his birth state as Texas.

In December 1880, Jason married Emily Christian.  One genealogy reports her
naem as Amanda Emily Christian.

If this is the same Jason Forsyth, it woudl seem to mean that Emily Christian
diwed before 1898.  But after 1900, Jason's wife is named Amanda or Mandy. 
Some genealogies name Emily Christian and Amnda Emily Christian.

Jason was buried in Cedar Creek Cemetery, Red River County, Texas.  His
gravestone has no dates.  Family genealogies report he died in 1925, but
provide no documentation or details.  His third wife Amanda is reported as a
widow in the 1930 census.

Notes for Nancy Delena FORSYTHE


Iowa, Marriages, 1851-1900
Samuel Carpenter
Spouse Nancy D Forsyth
Marriage 13 Sep 1891 Appanoose County, Iowa

I got Nancy's maiden name from her daughter Amanda Carpenter Briscoe's birth
record.  This record report's Amanda's mother's maiden name as Forsythe.  This
was also reported by the California Death record for Amanda.

Iowa, Births and Christenings Index, 1857-1947

Birth 30 Jul 1892 Caldwell Twp, Appanoose, Iowa
Father's Name Samuel Carpenter
Father's Birth Place Iowa
Father's Age 26
Mother's Name Nancy D Forsythe
Mother's Birth Place Iowa
Mother's Age 21

This birth record also is the first I have seen that provides Amanda's full
middle name.  All the city directories and censuses with a middle initial have
Amanda E.  I suspect that the middle initial E is for Ella, a nickname or
short form for her full middle name Luella.  In the 1920 census Amanda and her
husband are enumerated with Nancy and Sam in Montana.

Notes for Emily Caroline FOSTER


The Find a Grave memorial of William B Barnette reports his parents as John
Barnette and Emily Caroline Foster.  But in the 1910 census, William and his
wife Ida were enumerated with their children in Polk County, North Carolina. 
In their household was his mother, named Marget (Margaret).  Should the
enumerator have reported Margaret as the Stepmother?  At that point in life,
they probably did not make that distinction in reporting the relationship.

I have not been able to reconcile all the dates and relationship sequences. 
John Barnette died before 1910 and was survived by his wife Margaret who died
before 1920.  But Emily Foster Barnett Beach lived until 1938.  And her
husband was William Beach until he died in 1930.  He died in 1930.  William B
Barnett is reported in Emily's obituary as one of the sons surviving her.

Was Emily married to John Barnett before he married Margaret and then John and
Emily divorced.  Maybe, but that was quite unusual for that era.  Another
possibility also stretches credulity.    But William was born in 1872.  And
Emily was born about 1856,  To be William's birth mother, she would have had
to have William when she was bout 16, and married at about age 15.  That is
possible, but how likely?

Genealogies list a large number of Beach children, ranging in birth dates from
1880 to 1895 (three with unreported birth dates).  Assuming this is the total
list, Emily married William Beach about 1880.  Her age then would be about age
18, a common age of marriage.  Several genealogies report only William Beach
as her husband.  But her obituary reports William Barnett as one surviving
son.  William is the only child surnamed Barnett reported for Emily.

The date of birth on their daughter Mattie's grave is 1879, though some
genealogies report her birth in 1881.  Genealogy lists of her children report
1st child was Edward, b 1879, then Bessie in 1880, then Mattie.  So she must
have married William Beach about 1878.

Notes for Mary Elizabeth FOSTER


Mary Elizabeth is the daughter of Elizabeth Gentry Sorey, who was married
before she married Isaac Sorey.  A couple of genealogies record Mary's surname
as Foster.  In the 1860 census, it appears more like Fosler, as there is no
cross on the consonant.  Supporting evidence indicates that Elizabeth's first
husband was named Foster.  In the 1860 census, Elizabeth's parents are living
in Cooke County, Texas, and in their household is a 7-year-old Mary Foster.

Notes for Thomas FOSTER


It is possible the name of Elizabeth Gentry's husband was Thomas.  We know the
surname was Foster.  Another researcher found a marriage record in the right
location with a date close to what would match other dates for the family.  In
July 2011 Alisa K Hardman left in a note on my genealogy at Ancestry.com.

"There is a record of a marriage in Sevier County, Arkansas of Thomas Foster,
age 23, to Elishebeth Gentry, age 21 on 5 Oct 1854."
--  Alisa K Hardman, comment on Genealogy, 27 July 2011

This is the right county.  From other information about Elizabeth and her
family, we would expect she got married in either Clark County or Sevier
County, Arkansas.  We know her daughter's name is Mary Elizabeth Foster.  But
the date of birth for Mary Elizabeth from family reports in genealogies is 2
July 1853, 15 months before the date of this marriage record.  This is, of
course, possible, but very unusual in those days.  I have not found the
marriage record myself for further examination.
