In Reply to: Looking for origin of the Forshey name! by Doyle Forshey of 142

Hi Doyle and Everyone,

I found this meaning of Forshey :
Forshee: a man of peace.  When spelled Forshey, it means a dweller near a waterfall.

However, I once found a different meaning although I can't remember what it is. I'll keep looking.

Andre Forshey is my 7th great grand.
