Dear Joan Garland, I have been trying to trace my GGF's name which is John Clisham. He also, used the name of John Forbus and settled here in Maine. Could there be a connection between your family and mine? I would be very interested in hearing the history of your GM Emma Forbus and the three brothers that you mentioned in the message that you posted. Please e-mail me should this interest you. Sincerely, Andrew McNicol Clisham
