Need my Forbus line pre-1805 Edward Forbus (Josah's brother) born in in SC and moved to Coosa, AL by 1850,son of George. Any help would be appreciated to see if we tie into the Collin, William, or George Forbus lines I have found information on. Please email me at RonJForbus@live.com in order to get more information about my question or the information I may have for your Forbus/Forbis connection.

Descendants of John Forbes of Hartford Connecticut?

Riddle/Forbes/ Bray NC Line?

George E. Forbush Forbis Forbus JR. from Yadkin / Rowan Co?--~almost all kids end up in Kentucky ky or Mo

William Forbis Forbes Forbus (brother or father  of George Forbush NC had a son named George too; a daughter named Rachel; could they be on SC census in 1800 and 1810)? Monymusk Forbes Line?

Could Edward Forbus be a grandson from a William Wilson Forbes that fathered a son (James 1781) before remarrying and father William Warnock Forbes and other kids that went to GA and MS?

There seem to be Wiley/ Wily and Rigby/ Rigsby connections in Alabama too.

Pitt NC Clement Forbes connection? John Clement Forbes connection? These Forbes were involved with city organization at southern end of wagon trails and indian trails (McIntosh trail terminates locally in Talladega and Coosa Co. There are Forbes/ Forbs/ Forbus men in Troup/ Washington/ Elbert/ Heard counties in GA and Chambers/Randolph/ Coosa counties Al from Pitt Co. NC.

May not be a brother of Josiah Forbus (father or grandfather of  Wiley Mason Forbus). However, both Edward Forbus and Josiah were born in Abbeville SC and then end up in Coosa Co Alabama along with JC Forbs. Indian Trails came into BAMA from GA where my paternal line settled. There are aslo William Warnock Forbes fam in Pendleton. A Patrk Forbus on 1790 Census in Pendleton SC. I have taken DNA test and I will update soon.
Still searching for definite father of Edward Forbus b.1805 SC. However, based on genetic matches it looks like other Forbes lines spread throughout south are missing a connecting link in Abbeville as well. I match with some William and George Forbush Offspring. Some Bryan offspring. Some Cook offspring. Some Arthur Forbis offspring. Robert Forbis and John Faubush. Daniel Linsey Forbes offspring. Most of these at 5-7 generations back. I have also matched with a descendant of the Massachusetts Forbush and a CT Forbes on wikitree. I run GED Match at 5cM minimum sequence strands on my matches. Ferguson 5-6 generations back? Caldwell 6-7 generations back.

Many public trees have Edward Forbus marrying a Mary Isabel Forbess (daughter of Archibald Barron Forbess; son of Joseph (or John?) Forbess/Rachel Barron , but I do not find any real matches on ancestry except through the trees of my own cousins that may also be incorrect regarding this ancestor.

Genetic Matches or connections with the following Forbes/Forbis/Faubus/Forbus/Forbush Lines:
