"Forrest" Markward was son of Martin Forrest Markward and Ada (Moore) of Fort Worth, TX. He received his law degree from UT in Austin and practiced law in Fort Worth until retirement at age 82. Twin flagpoles at the Tarrant County Court House were installed in his honor, along with a dedication plaque.

Forrest served in WWII as a JAG stationed on Mindanao, Philippines; among his achievements was drafting the surrender document for the Japanese commander which was signed on Mindanao.

In 1963 Forrest was present for the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce breakfast held for President John F. Kennedy, who then left for Dallas for a luncheon, and was assassinated just before his arrival there.

Forrest never married nor had children. He was a lifelong member of the Polytechnic United Methodist Church in Fort Worth.
