Ella Metsker Milligan's monograph entitled Christian Gnaegi - Pioneeer Evangelist and Local Preacher of the United Brethren in Christ, 1938, names Abraham Forney as the father of Catherine. This is incorrect. Catherine was the daughter of Joseph Forney of Somerset Co., PA, who died in 1802. Christian Kneagy was named as a bondsman in Joseph's will.

A copy of this article was filed at the Mennonite Library in Lancaster, PA in the early 1980's and was referenced in Eugene Kanaga's Descendants of Johanes Gnage and John Knege, Sr. and Related Families, 1988. Kanaga was informed of the error regarding the name of Catherine's father and our correspondence is on file. A note about this error has been added to my copy of Kenaga's book.

According to Mr. Kanaga, after the death of Catherine, Christian married Catharine Harbarh. Nothing else is known. Tuscarawas Co., OH, marriage records show a Justice of the Peace named F.C. Harbaugh. Could this have been the father of Catharine? Tuscarawas Co. records need to be explored.

Joseph FORNEY       (ID #I34309)

Family 1 : Barbara YODER (?) (d. BEF 1785)
  1. +Catherine FORNEY (b. ABT 1774, d. 15 SEP 1828)
  2.  John FORNEY (b. 15 NOV 1777, d. 31 AUG 1846)

  7.  Christian FORNEY (d. ABT 1859)
Family 2 : Barbara \WIDOW MILLER (dates unknown)

Joseph Forney died intestate in Somerset Co, PA in April 1802. Documents on file show that his daughter, Nancy, was married to Daniel Zug. His second wife, Barbara, was the widow of Isaac Miller, deceased by 1785. Christian Knegy (Gnaegi) was his son-in-law, married to daughter, Catherine. His land in Elk Lick Township (484 acres) adjoined that of Peter Livengood, Abraham Begley (Beeghley?), Christian Lighty, John Bigley, Henry Yoder and others. See Laurel Messenger, Feb. 1975, pg. 7. Same page has information about the estate of Isaac Miller.

There is considerable erroneous information on file in various local history societies in Pennsylvania. Research on the Forney family by the staff at Somerset Historical Society in 1996 turned up many interesting tidbits....but accuracy is doubtful.

The name of the first wife of Joseph Forney has not been proved but many researchers believe she may have been Barbara Yoder, the daughter of Christian Yoder and Barbara Hooley. See World Family Tree, vol. 5, pedigree #3011.

(female)
Family 1 : Jean SCALÉ (b. abt 1610, d. 28 OCT 1681)
  1. +Bernard SCALÉ (bp. 14 MAR 1663)

The Fosse (or occasionally Fossé) family at Roquecourbe seems to be distinct from the Fos or de Fos family at Castres, even though the surnames listed for women in this area are often feminized, so that a woman named Marie, daughter of Jean Fos, would often be listed as Marie Fosse. In Roquecourbe, however, we find a Marie daughter of Abraham Fosse and Marie Fosse baptised 21 nov 1632, plausibly the same Marie who married Jean Scalé in 1661, his second wife.
