William F. Forbis b. 2 Sept 1851 to William Urban and Nancy Alley Forbis of Barry Co., siblings: John b. 1849 d. 1869; Elizabeth Nancy Angeline b. 31 Jan 1858 m. Hezekiah Hilton; Robert b. 1860 and child b. 1861.

Elizabeth and Hezekiah had at least one daughter Elpha Samantha b. 29 Aug 1875 m. Ruel W. Williams b. 22 Dec 1871 on 25 Dec 1892 in Wayne Co., MO and had at least one daughter Salena Beatrice Williams b. 13 Oct 1893.

Salena m. John Baptist Bergum b. 5 May 1879 Neuerburg, Rheini, Prussia on 13 Aug 1915 in Prescott, AZ and had at least one son, John Boyd Bergum b. 11 Oct 1917 in Phoenix, Maricopa, AZ.

William married Salina M. Brownb. 1847 in Barry Co., MO on 5 Dec 1869 in Eureka Springs, Carroll Co., AR. They had one daughter, Mary Clarissa "Clearcy" Forbis b. Jul 1870. Mary Clarissa married William Lancing Hatcher b. 21 Nov 1865 in Floyd Co., KY on 4 Sept 1887 in Carroll Co., AR William Lancing and Mary Clarissa had nine children:
1. Cecil (Twin) Hatcher b. 21 May 1888; 2. Cleo (Twin) b. 21 May 1888; 3. Mabel b. Apr 1892; 4. Bessie K. b. 30 May 1894; 5. Lucille W. b. May 1896; 6. Otto C. b. Sep 1897; 7. George Theodore; 8. Elizabeth Hatcher; and 9. Jewel Hatcher William L. Hatcher d. 1928 in OK.

I give this background for potential descendants and for those who live in Barry County who might know the info I seek.

I know that William F. Forbis is buried in the Osa Cemetery in Stone Co. and the only inscription from what I understand is his name and birth year. His father is buried in the same cemetery. His mother d. 1861 in Barry Co., MO prehaps complications in childbirth since a child was born that year--and his father remarried to Elizabeth Hines.

I need to know if William Urban's first wife Nancy Alley Forbis is buried in Barry Co., MO and is there any written records giving the date when William Urban married Elizabeth Hines. John Forbis b. 1849 d. 1869. Anyone know if he is buried in Barry Co., MO? Did the last child b. 1861 survive? Does anyone know the name given to the chld?

Please E-mail me direct...
