There is nothing in any records to show that Hannah's LNAB was Forrest other than one of the children was named Forrest. Hannah's LNAB remains "Unknown"

Forrest-148 and Unknown-350249 appear to represent the same person because: These are same person and I'm working on them currently. Please merge.

Unknown-350249 and Forrest-148 are not ready to be merged because: I would give it a "weak maybe." There is nothing that compares exactly but the name Hannah and the location as Gloucester. Even the marriage dates are off. This will take some sleuthing.

Forrest-148 and Cabor-1 appear to represent the same person because: Hannah Forrest is the mother of Forrest Upshaw. These represent the same mother with different last names. Also needs to be merged with Unknown-350249 after this initial merge is complete. Born 1679 in Glouster County, Virginia, USA and died 20 June 1763 in Essex County, Virginia, USA.

Forest-67 and Forrest-148 appear to represent the same person because: Forrest-148 has more connections than Forest-67 so I picked it for LNAB
