Daniel Lester Fortney #156458159 I just found this son of George Riley Fortney. Note that his marriage and death info lists her mother's maiden name as 'Marr' vs. Morrow - but I have no documentation either way. Do you?
I'm a Fortney descendant. I just found Missouri dau of Joshua Noah Fortney & Mary Catherine Pell. I see she was m. (1) to Arthur Ogden #64512701 who d. 21Jan1886 in a mine explosion. She apparently then m. (2) Daniel Flogercy but I don't find marriage or death info. Hoping you have more info?
Please also visit my website and I invite you to submit additional info or corrections. http://ourfamilysaga.com/ [I've not yet updated it with the newly found info on Missouri et al]. Thanks!
RE: CL Tetrick picture My grandmother is Maxine - the one with the dog Julie. That makes Sarah and Clarence Tetrick my great grandparents. My grandmother has often said there were tons of Fortneys and Tetricks and keeping them all straight has been tough. I would imagine that is the case for most family's of that time since they were so large! I believe I've seen/heard Gertrude Maude mentioned here and there in my family's various notes and conversations. My uncle is the unofficial geneologist of the family and has been able to keep up with who is who to a degree. His cousin, Marge's son, has also been poking around the internet and old records trying to find anything related to the Fortneys and Tetricks. I know some of my family was glad and surprised to see the pictures you've posted! Hopefully you'll find some more treasures!
The picture you posted with CL Tetrick has my grandmother in it. We were curious where you found this picture. My grandmother can remember seeing the actual picture but cannot remember where it went. Are you a Tetrick? Do you happen to have any other pictures like this one? We'd love to know more about how you came across it!
re: James Fortney Sorry to message again on this. I found on 1930 census, Wayne co, a Lawrence Fordney b. 1902 in West Virginia. As we know, the information given on census records is not always accurate and the information given on death records is seldom first hand information, add this info to what's in the bible and I would say this is him.
