In Clark County Illinois is the Forsythe Cemetery and most of them are buried in that area if not in that cemetery. We go back to William who married Ester Ashmore in Kentucky and his grandson Benjamin Bradford fought in the Civil War. There are agreat many of us who have resources for the different lines. Please e-mail me at my e-mail address bjcan2@hotmail.com

I found this posting on 2/2005 @ http://genforum.genealogy.com/forsythe/messages/435.html

I emailed bjcan2 to see if she's still around.

She responded and we spoke on the phone for a bit. Unfortunately, she was quite guarded with her information, asking that none of anything she supplies be made available via the internet.
