Your ancestor is John FOR[R]EST b 1818 Scotland; d. 4-25-1883 Soldier's Home, Montgomery Co OH; bur Dayton Nat'l Cem. He apparently was m 3x. His 1st wife is unk, likely took place in NY. He served in the CW Co K OH from Wood Co OH; 3rd wife Sophronia [TEALE] FORREST filed for his pension. Her maiden name was obtained from dau Josephine Sophronia Schwartz' DC. You should obtain penison packet, usually has great info. His 2nd wife was Almira LOOMIS, Prudence's mom.

John/Sophronia had Josephine 1872; Emma M 1876; Ida E 1880

I'm assuming Ella HAYNES is Prudence Rosella FORREST.

What became of Hiram HAYNES' ch from 1st marriage?
Mary E b 7-20-1867
Jessie b 8-9-1870
Mabel? b 8-22-1874
all in Branch MI
mom is Emma C on all.

I didn't find marriages for any of these folks.
Prudence is with Hattie 1920, but not 1930.
1910 Prudence was a housekeeper in Los Angles; 7ch/5surviving.

Some of this info can be found
