Andrew Forgey came from Ireland, settled in Maury County, TN about 1808 or 1809. He was married to Elinor Randall, 'of the Lords of Ireland'. He died in 1819. Their children were James, Hugh, John, Andrew, Margaret, Mary, Samuel Scott and Nancy. There is another Andrew that has similar information and I wonder if Elinor was a second wife. According to tradition, the oldest son in a family was named after his grandfather and the oldest daughter after her grandmother. In this case, Andrew's father should be James and Andrew's mother should be Margaret. All the Forgey, Forgy, Forgies came from northern Ireland. Your Margaret is from this line. Some of this line settled in Navarro Co., TX., in 1857.
