COLBERT, MCLISH posted by Deanna on Saturday, October 10, 1998

I am having trouble locating information on my fifth-great grandfather, COL. GEORGE COLBERT. I have connected my family tree up to that generation, but no farther. Information I currently have indicates COL. COLBERT was born about 1764 in Lauderdale County, TN, died about 1839. Any information you could pass along regarding this surname would be wonderful. My other 5th-great grandfather, WILLIAM McLISH died about 1803 in Robertson County, TN. I know he was married to a Chickasaw woman, and I would welcome any information you could furnish on the McLISH's. Their son's name was JOHN McLISH, died 1839 and was married to SUSAN COLBERT, daughter of COL. COLBERT.

FORSYTH, FORSYTHE, HARRISON, NEWMAN posted by Sterling Forsythe on Sunday, October 18, 1998

Greetings: Am interested to know what Forsyth(e)line information you may have traced. Am great grandson of William Stanton Forsyth, 1849-1913, first located in 1870 census (b. TN) in Lauderdale County, Tennessee, Hales Point, on the Mississippi River. Listed occupation was "Rafting." Head of household was "Pamelia" a 52? yr old female. Have no other known information on father of William Stanton Forsyth. William Stanton Forsyth bought 640 acres (1873) at Hales Point, married, operated store, cotton gin, cut timber, reared large family there until death at mature age. A 1907 county birth record for his last child cited William Stanton Forsyth's birthplace as McNairy County, Tennessee. Much research in McNairy County, Tennessee has turned up no credible links among the Forsyth(e) families that are well documented there. Because of the 1870 census "rafting" occupation, we think he (they) may have journeyed from the northern states to West Tennessee via Mississippi/Ohio Rivers. Suspect the entry in the 1870 census record stating William Stanton Forsyth's birthplace as TN could be bogus info. Any ideas/thoughts? Hope to hear from you. Sterling C. Forsythe, III
