  • First-hand information. Entered by Michael Fortenberry at registration.

Bogalusa, Louisiana was home town to both my father (Fortenberry) and mother (Quave). My father was career Air Force so we traveled overseas and domestically, including residences in Bogalusa and Lake Charles, Louisiana; Tachikawa AFB, Tokyo, Japan; Sumter, South Carolina; Hampton and Buckroe Beach, Virginia; Keflavik, Iceland; Pineville and Alexandria, Louisiana; and Amarillo, Texas. I served in the Air Force (1976-1978) until my father's death in 1978. I was stationed at Wichita Falls, Texas; Hanscom AFB, Bedford, Massachusetts from 1977-1978, then lived in Bogalusa, Louisiana; Amarillo, Texas; Woburn and Pepperell, Massachusetts, and have lived in Newburgh, NY for the last 18 years. I am determined to know my family's complete genealogy as far as is possible.

Hey Michael, I'm a distant cousin of yours from the Alabama Falkenberry line. Your ancestor William Jasper Fortenberry was the brother of my 5th great grandfather Israel Falkenberry. Like you, I'm trying to add as much family to my tree as possible, including all the distant cousins. Let me know if you're interested in my Falkenberry information.

Hello, Michael. I received your message. About all I can say is to look for the book (probably public library) "The Fortenberry Families of Southern Mississippi" and see if you can find a connection there. Also, one of my sisters is maintaining a wordpress page where she (and sometimes I) post fun information about our Fortenberry family. Late last week, Andie posted a complete family line back to the 1500's based on her VERY WELL documented research. It takes a few read throughs, but is well worth the look. fortenberry.wordpress.com is her location. WE HAVE had the DNA test done and it can be found at the Family Tree DNA project under Fortenberry. Ours ended up right in the middle of the pack! Please understand that I am NEW to WikiTree!!

Hi Michael,

You sent me this email in January:

Hi, I'm entering my data a little at a time. I was entering Jane Goslin 1785-1851 who married Willis Simmons 1784-1862 and whose daughter was Narcissa Simmons 1813-1890 and married to Calvin Kennington Fortenberry 1806-1877. I just wanted to see if your Jane Simons was the same person. thank you. Michael Ray Fortenberry (source; wikitree email dtd Jan 9, 2013)

Its apparently not the same person. I've updated my Jane Simmons and she is the wife of Jasper A Cunningham. The daughter of Abraham Simmons 1811 – 1888 & Mary Mullenax 1813 – 1860. I've opened up her privacy setting as well. Sorry about the delay. I'm way behind.
