The ancestry is:
Archibald Forgey (1795 Hawkins CO.VA-1865+/-Scott Co. VA) married Eleanor Roller (dau. of Jacob Roller and Eva Zirkle) and in 1819 in Washington Co. Tenn. They had 12 children, one was Athalina (my line) that married James England, and another was George that married Ibba Sue England, sister of James. Many of the Englands, Forgeys, Rollers, and others in southwest VA moved to southwest Missouri right after the civil war.
Some went to Dade Co.(James England and family), Barry Co. and Christian Co. (George Forgey and wife Ibba). This George was born June 10, 1829 in Scott Co. VA and died June 2, 1908 in Rogersville, Mo., buried in Linden, Mo. George and Ibba had 14 children, all born in Christian Co. Mo. One of their children was an Albert born October 12, 1871 that married Lorena Bodenhamer. I don't have anything more on this Albert, and if he had children they could have been born when he was 18 or older, i.e. about 1890. This Albert died 1943 in Green Co. Mo.Your Albert could be his son, but it doesn't sound logical that any of his children would be born outside of their home area in Missouri. Further, almost all of the children of George and Ibba died in the home area of Missouri. It is, however, possible your Albert could be a grandson of George and Ibba. That is about all I can do for you now. You may want to check out some of the census records, marriage records, etc. to find out more on your Albert.
