Ruth, If you are related to the above, a relative of yours wrote a book on this line sometime in the 1950's. It is called "Forgy, Forgey and Forgie Family History" by Lucille Forgy Wallace. "Samuel Forgey was b. in Ireland. He and wife, Sarah, with their 6 children came to America 1765-68. They settled in Rowan Co., N.C. He d. Aug. 1770. Children were James, b.1752, Samuel, Jonathan, Rachel, Elizabeth, Mary and unborn child at time of his death. Son, James was a major in Rev. War. He and bro, Samuel, were granted 5,000 acres of land in Tipton Co., Tenn, on the Missippi River in 1784, but they never settled the land. James m. a widow, Rebecca Clements Hawes. -- Samuel Forgy Jr. and Martha Campbell were m. July 22, 1779 in Rowan Co. N.C. He bought land in Logan Co., Ky. in 1796. John Sturdivant (no date given) obtained letters of administration on the estate of Samuel Forgy, deceased." That was the last record found of Samuel by the writer of the book. "What became of his descendents remains a mystery." I guess the mystery has been solved. There are 115 pages of descendents with narrative. Hope this helps. Barb Crain-Caldwell
