- FORRESTER, GORDON, THORN
on Wednesday, March 16, 2005
I am researching my family history for Clyde Stanley FORRESTER. Born 5/25/1888 in Tyler County, WV but left sometime after 1900 census. According to his marriage licence he was a resident of Findlay prior to marring Bessie GORDON. He was married on 5/8/1907 in Ohio County, WV. Therefore in lived in or near Findlay sometime between 1900 and 1907. Do any records exist of him being there. Perhaps with one of his half brothers, surname THORN.
