Nancy Edick Forsting
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 20, 1830
New York, USA
Death: Nov. 23, 1913
San Luis Obispo County
California, USA

Native of New York.

According to the United States Census of 1850, Nancy was living in the City of Utica, Oneida Co., NY. She was 21 years old.

Married Lewis Fosting on July 4th, 1853 in Syracuse, Onondaga Co., New York. Nancy lived in Chittenango Falls, Madison Co., New York at the time of her marriage to Lewis.

Their son Charles was born in New York and their daughter Ida was born 8 years later in Illinois.

As of the 1870 U.S. Census, the Fosting family was living in the area of Snelling, Merced Co., California. Lewis was a farmer. Lewis's mother, Nancy, was living with them. They were most likely living on a farm near Snelling. Their post office was in Snelling.

By the 1880 Census, the family was now living in Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo Co., Ca. Lewis's mother is no longer living with them and is now deceased.

Both of Nancy's parents were born in the state of New York according to the 1880 United States Census.

The remembrance card to the right says "In Loving Remembrance of Nancy Forsting Died Nov. 23, 1913. Aged 84 Years. Gone but not forgotten A precious one from us is gone, A voice we loved is stilled; A place is vacant in our home, Which never can be filled. God in His wisdom has recalled, The boon his love had given; And though the body slumbers here, The soul is safe in Heaven."

The last name on the gravestone is misspelled as "Forsting". My grandmother, Nancy's granddaughter, always said it was "Fosting", not "Forsting". The marriage certificate says "Fosting" as well.
