Hi Sherry, I don't remember what dates I wrote. I will list what I think I know.... Jeptha Monroe Fortson b. 1845 Leak Co.Miss. was son of Aaron J. Fortson, b. 1816 Elberton,Elbert Co.Ga. Aaron J. Fortson b.1816, was son of William Fortson, b. 1774 Orange Co.Va., and Ann Higginbotham.
William Fortson,b.1774 was son of Thomas Jr. Fortson, b.1742, Caroline Co.Va. and Rachel Winn, b. 1743.
Jeptha Monroe Fortson, b. abt. 1845, Ms., m.Margarett Eliz. Riley, abt. 1871 in Panola Co.Texas. Jeptha Monroe Fortson lived in Gregg Co.Texas from abt. 1902 til after the 1910 census in Gregg Co.Tx. He is not in any 1920 census that I can find so I assume he died after 1910 but I do not know where. My Fortson information except for Jeptha Monroe Fortson and his descendants comes from the Bartlett Database. I hope I have this right. Carol
