Rick & Dawn Forsythe

Their first landing was in Norfolk Virginia.  Later, they moved on to Charlotte, Mecklenburg Co. North Carolina in 1767.   In 1782, James and Elizabeth had moved to Prince Edward County Virginia.

My wife Dawn is the great granddaughter of George and Angelina Manley, Greek immigrants who arrived here in 1905, leaving behind their pack mules in the mountains of Kosmos, Greece.  Goat cheese was their primary product.

This repository of family data, as presented, is by no means complete and most certainly contains errors.  There is very little that is presented on this website to which I can personally attest as a true fact.  I am doing my best to ensure that all of the information is accurate, and hopefully, supported by some type of documentation or source.  There are times, however, that assumptions are made.   If you find information which you believe to be incorrect, I apologize in advance. In return, I ask that you utilize the various links on this site to contact me and offer your corrections.

This website is a collaberative effort by only a few.  If you are willing to contribut to this cause, we welcome you.  The best way for this tree to grow is through the efforts of the various genealogists who continue to put in countless hours researching their own ancestry.  My goal is to bring all of those genealogists together into this central location to share their research with their peers and interested family members.

Captain Thomas Henry Hines, 1838–1898

 

Thomas Henry Hines (October 8, 1838 – January 23, 1898) was a Confederate spy during the American Civil War. A native of Butler County, Kentucky, he initially worked as a grammar instructor, mainly at the Masonic University of La Grange, Kentucky. During the first year of the war, he served as a field officer, initiating several raids. He was an important assistant to John Hunt Morgan, doing a preparatory raid (Hines' Raid) in advance of Morgan's Raid through the states of Indiana and Ohio, and after being captured with Morgan, organized their escape from the Ohio Penitentiary. He was later involved in espionage and tried to stir up insurrections against the Federal government in select Northern locales.

After the war, once it was safe for him to return to his native Kentucky, he settled down with much of his family in Bowling Green, Kentucky. He started practicing law, which led him to serve on the Kentucky Court of Appeals, eventually becoming its Chief Justice. Afterward, he practiced law in Frankfort, Kentucky until his death in 1898, keeping many of the secrets of Confederate espionage from public knowledge.
