I have found a book which state that William Forester and Thomas Forester enlisted in the fight for independence in April of 1777. I then found where it lists Thomas as killed on sept 7 1777, but no location. William survived and was given 640 acres in western NC. I then found that Thomas's company leader (??) was given the land for Thamas for his widow and two surviving sons, also in western NC. I cannot find any NC land records which show this. I have also found that WIlliam and Thomas were brothers (there is said to be 5 brothers in all). I know that one brother was Benjamin and I think the others were James and John. I am trying to trace the connection from Thomas to my family. I have been told that there has been a Forester in every war for the US since the Revoultionary War. Any info would help. Thank You, Jeannie Forester-Box
