Samuel Forrer, Prominent Farmer and Business Man is Dead at Mossy Creek

Director of Rockingham National Bank and Well Known in Augusta and Rockingham

Samuel Forrer, one of the most extensive farmers and business men of Augusta County, and a director of the Rockingham National Bank, Harrisonburg, died last night at his home near Mossy Creek. He had been in failing health for several years and for the last two week or two his condition had been critical.

Mr. Forrer was born near Mossy Creek seventy-seven years ago, and had been a prominent figure in that community since his youth. His father, the late Daniel Forrer, was the owner of Elizabeth furnace, which supplied the Confederacy with much material during the War between the States.

Mr. Forrer was twice married. His first wife was Miss Deyerle; his second wife, who died two years ago, was the widow of Dry Trevy of Mossy Creek.

Mr. Forrer had extensive banking interests in Staunton and Harrisonburg, and was one of the original members of the board of directors of the Rockingham National. He was widely known in both Augusta and Rockingham, and highly respected for his sterling integrity.

For many years he had been an elder in the Mossy creek Presbyterian Church, and for a long time was superintendent of the Sunday School.
Surviving him are two sons, Judge Charles D. Forrer of Parkersburg, W.Va., and Joseph Forrer of Mossy Creek; and a sister, Mrs. Bettie Harmon, who made her home with her brother. Henry Forrer of near Harrisonburg, is a first cousin, and a Dr. D. Atwell Forrer, a nephew.
