|A tear in Samuel Forgey's will is symbolic of the missing pieces we need to reconstruct in the family history in general|
Our problem is who to believe?
- We have some believing that Samuel and Sarah of Rowan, North Carolina are Elizabeth Forgy/Sharp's parents.
- We have a statement on GenForum that Jane Sharp recorded the names of Elizabeth's parents in 1844 as John and Rachel Forgy
- At the same time in 1844 she recorded the names of two uncles John Forgy and Adam McPherson and two aunts, Jane McPherson and Rachel Forgy.
- The researcher Bert Rawlins came upon a GenForum post regarding a John Forgy and Rachel White. He recognized the fact that Jane's uncle Adam McPherson was married to a Jane White (a maybe sister of Rachel?)
- Elizabeth Forgy was married to Robert Sharp who appears with Adam McPherson in Washington County, PA in the late 1700's, and is found with him later in Bourbon County, Kentucky. This may link Elizabeth's family with the family of Hugh Forgey and Sally Evermen who were also residents of Bourbon County, KY
- We then see an Adam McPherson with a John Forgy in Clarke County, Ohio in the early 1800's. They both belong to the same Presbyterian Honey Creek Congregation in New Carlisle.
- On the flip side, in support of Samuel and Sarah as parents, a Sharp was named in Samuel Forgey's will
- Samuel and Sarah did have a daughter named Elizabeth as recorded in Samuel's will.
- Elizabeth named a daughter Melinda. A named used in Samuel Forgy's family
- After Samuel's death his family did migrate from North Carolina to Kentucky
|Elizabeth named as a daughter of Samuel|
|A William Sharp is mentioned in Samuel's Will|
|Could this Elizabeth named as a daughter in Hugh's will be a namesake of Elizabeth Forgy/Sharp?|
