U.S. Marshal. A captain in the Continental Army during the American Revolution and later a major in the Virginia State Militia, he moved to Richmond County in 1785. President Washington submitted Forsyth's name in 1789 to the U.S. Senate for the position of Marshal of the District of Georgia. The Augusta lawman and civic leader is remembered by history as being the first U.S. Marshal slain in the line of duty. He was also the father of John Forsyth, a Georgia governor and congressman.  (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
