Josiah married Sarah Ann Boxwell on 19 Dec 1854 in Peoria county, Illinois. They had at least one child, Henry Clay Forney, 3 Jan 1859 - 13 Nov 1938. Josiah died in Illinois or Iowa, and his body was apparently sent back to Hanover to be interred in St Matthews cemetery. Their cemetery records have the notation "from Iowa" beneath "St. Matthews" entered in the column used for denoting place of burial. There is another memorial for Josiah placing him in a cemetery in Illinois but that would seem to be incorrect given this notation, and the information below.This memorial has been created in this cemetery because Josiah was specifically mentioned in an article in the 19 Sep 1972 edition of Hanover's The Evening Sun newspaper. The article was a public notice provided by Saint Matthew Lutheran Church stating that all headstones still remaining in the cemetery behind the stone church would be removed because of their state of deterioration.
In 1952 Josiah's remains and stone had been moved to this section from his original gravesite to accommodate construction enlarging the Sunday school building.
