Jones Family came to visit today. FORBES- WAY lineage

  Today our cousin Carolin Forbes came to visit from up the road a piece.  It was awesome to have her attend the society meeting.  Then we came home and worked two computers looking for an ancestor of hers.

Alas we only uncovered two more records of knowledge for her and not what we needed. We covered lots of sites and data and discussed much history of the region we were looking at.

Blogging about it in case some one knows whom she is looking for.

She has Matilda Forbes

Birth:  27 Aug 1868 - Cook County (Cook), USA
Death:  8 Dec 1946 - Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota, USA
Marriage:  9 May 1888 - Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota, United States
Spouse:  Alexander Forbes

She was born Matilda Way.

Census records say parents born in Ohio.

What we did find was pictures of women that matched her in another's tree but the people were unknown to Carolin.  We only did a preliminary research in Ohio for any WAY.-Wey.
Ashtubula  Co. had two.

See this is Carolin's  Great grandparents.

Time for Dessert. two cousins found me today.

Two cousins found me today.  Actually it was three. But two I had lost and was glad to have found.
Delighted to have a new one found.

It affected Fred's Brown family, my Scott Family and  my Hoffman line.

Yes I also have Brown. And we are related to Fred's Browns.  

Rachel Plants Hoffman had siblings. one married into my husband's Browns.
Her sister Hannah Plants mar Mr. Clay Brown. If memory correct.
Some of these files I lost when back up drive died 2 winters ago.

This Brown family is related to Kimbroughs', Casper's, Tatum's, and Plants and many others not yet tracked.  His Brown's moved to northern CA and founded a  town.  I found one of the descendants today. Or they found me.  : > )

My new found Scott cousin is in Iowa.  I knew many of Grandma's siblings but two of them lived Iowa and there was minimal contact. Or it was lost when a death happened.

My new found Hoffman kin also relates to Nancy Ann Plants Huffman.

GGGrandma Rachel Plants Hoffman's family seems to blend nicely in with both my husband and my Mom's lines.

Huffman and Hoffman are same line. One changed spelling mid 1850s in Greene Co. PA.
Mason and Sanford were cousins as the wives were sisters.

Now if the LITTLE connection comes through it will be a bang up day. Thank You God.

Martha Hoffman/Huffman Gallentine Rum/Rhome


Henry and Elizabeth Higgins Hoffman had several children.  One I am  digging into now that I gave up on in the early 1990's is Martha.

She married Jacob Gallentine, (I read in book in Waynesburg Library he went to war. He did not come home, Maybe died on the  ship that blew up in river). After his not returning she married William Rum  census says Kum.  Most ancestors write Rhome.

Family Search, Deeds, Wills, court papers left me looking for oldest daughter whom was to be in charge at Martha's death.  Ellen Gallentine had been tracked to Nebraska and poof no more data.

The children are under William Rhum rum   age 36 she is 40 Jacob was in WAR  goneSAVE  PRINT SHARE

I spoke to Rex Gallentine's wife several times and they had no records on Jacob either that she knew off.  I do write to and communicate with the Dennis Rhome's family in Ohio.

Anyone who has more knowledge on this family and the children of Jacob and I suspect the last ones were William Rhome's?? But unless he kept family together he was to get nothing I have Martha's Will.   Ellen and Annie were Jacob's children for sure.

Martha died in 1881 was born 20 Mar 1839.
