Louis H. FOREST, born Oct 1852, VA or WV; m. abt. 1884 Gemima (Jemima), born Jul 1848. Children: Lafayette FOREST, born Sep 1885, Elliott Co., KY; m. Bessie Leona PORTER. Mary J. FOREST, born Mar 1887, KY. Martha FOREST, born Sep 1888, KY. Cyntha F. FOREST, born Jul 1890, KY. Louis (Lewis) FOREST appears in the Elliott Co. Census for 1900 and 1910. He does not appear in 1920, however, J. H. FOREST, 68; Germinia FOREST, 72; and Lewis (grandson), 11 appear in the 1920 census for Rowan Co. I am assisting an the 80-year old daughter of Lafayette FOREST and Bessie PORTER in finding out about her family. She has been told that Lafayette FOREST died in a typhoid epidemic sometime between 1917 and 1923. She and three of her siblings were placed in an orphanage until her mother remarried in 1923 and reclaimed her children. She has also been told that her twin brother, Louis H., went to live with Louis and Gemima FOREST rather than the orphanage. No death certificate has been found for Lafayette FOREST, nor does he appear in the census as an adult in KY, OH, VA or WV, although it is said he never left the Elliott Co. area. Questions: Is the Lewis FOREST in Rowan Co.1920 the Louis FOREST listed above? Did Lafayette FOREST marry in Elliott Co.? Do Lewis or Lafayette FOREST appear on any tax records? Are there any records of a typhoid epidemic in this time frame that could help us find death records on Lafayette? Any help would be appreciated! --Sheryl Slaughter
