Preface 



My Forgey family history journey began with my introduction to Lucille Wallace's "A 
genealogical history of the Forgy, Forgey and Forgie families in America " book. A cousin, Helen 
Irene McNiece, brought her copy of the book with her when she visited us in the early 1990's. I 
was surprised to find out the family first settled in Tennessee. I was only aware of the family in 
Indiana. A cousin in Indiana wrote a follow up book to Lucille's book in 1999. After reading this 
book I decided I wanted to collect some of the documents mentioned in both books, and create a 
website with our Forgey family history. I ordered LDS Family History Library deed microfilms 
for the areas mentioned but, unfortunately, could not find these deeds on those films. I thought the 
deeds had never been officially recorded in the deed books, and may have been in a family 
collection. I decided to move on and order more microfilms for the area. I found references to court 
cases regarding the family. I located the contact information for the Knox County, TN archives on 
the internet and contacted them for more information about the court cases. They could not provide 
more information, but offered to send me an index of all Forgey court cases. The archivist also 
offered to send me a deed index. I happily accepted these offers. When I received the indexes I was 
very surprised to find the deeds I was looking for listed. When I asked why I was not able to find 
them on the Family History Library Microfilms I was told the FHL had not microfilmed all of the 
deeds. The deeds I was looking for were warranty deeds, and were not filmed. I immediately 
ordered copies of some of the deeds. The deeds did not support the lineages in the books. The 
1 802 James Forgey to Alexander Forgey deed was said to be a father to son deed, but there was no 
relationship stated in this deed. The land was sold to Alexander Forgey of Knox County, TN from 
James Forgey of Hawkins County, TN. There was a James Forgey in Hawkins County, TN. I knew 
this man could not be Alexander's father. I also discovered the Andrew mentioned in the Flat Creek 
deeds was too old to be my Andrew b. 1794. 1 knew at this point I needed to scrap the old lineage 
and rethink everything; since the basis for our lineage rested solely on those deeds. 
I began research on the early family from scratch, with no preconceptions. I decided to collect 
everything I could find from every possible source. I quickly found more information pointing to 
the Andrew Forgey, Margaret Reynolds, line owning land on Flat Creek in Knox County, TN. I 
found many family ties with the Hawkins County, TN Forgey family and the Flat Creek area of 
Knox County, TN. There were just too many ties to ignore. I used a process of elimination to find 
my Andrew Forgey, born 1794's, father. I put together family groups for every Forgey male I 
found in the records, for both Knox and Hawkins Counties. Once I finished this project I was left 
with only two males in the age range, who could have been my Andrew's father. Namely, Hugh 
and John were the only two remaining. I later found that John Forgey had a son named Andrew 
who died in 1834, which could not be my Andrew. Hugh Forgey and Catherine Fisher were the 
only couple now left with unidentified children. I was able to build a good circumstantial case 
using existing evidence for that lineage. 

The following compilation is the result of many years of research by many people. I would like to 
thank everyone who provided me with assistance and information. This includes Nan Harvey, 
Kenneth Edmondson, Carla Rotmans, Brian French, Helen Travis, Christy Cradic La Barthe, 
Roger Forgey, Charles Forgey, Gregory Livingstone, Mellissa Forgey-Simpson and Lynn Steele to 
name a few. The Knox County Archives, and Reynolds Family Association. The list could go 
on ...

Explanation of results 

My Uncle Charles Forgey has taken a Y DNA test, along with Roger Forgey, of the Andrew 
Forgey and Margaret Reynolds' line. They took the 37 marker Y DNA test and mismatched by only 
one marker. This points to a tight relationship. As the testing company states few achieve this close 
a match. Roger tested positive for the LI 26 SNP, which is associated with Scotland (this SNP 
probably originated in Southwest Scotland). Our family was likely in the British Isles for 
thousands of years. It was thought there might be a Norman connection. This does not seem to be 
the case. 

All of our Forgey/Forgy DNA testers have matched a Forgie line from Co. Down, Ireland. The 
Forgeys were Scots-Irish, and most likely were part of the Ards plantation in Co. Down, Ireland. 
The Forgies can be found in that area in the early 1600's. According to Co. Down native Gregory 
Livingstone; "there are Forgie's mentioned in the Montgomery manuscripts, they came in 1603, 
with Sir Hugh and helped build the harbour and town of Donaghadee." 

The name Forgey is derived from the clan name Ferguson. This was confirmed by our DNA study. 
There were many Ferguson matches. 



Andrew and Margaret's History 

The family migrated to America from Ulster Ireland shortly after the birth of their daughter Nancy 
in 1768. They seem to have followed a well worn path. First settling in Cumberland County, 
Pennsylvania. They followed the same migration pattern from Pennsylvania through Virginia into 
Tennessee as thousands of others. They most likely migrated through Virginia to Tennessee on the 
Great Wagon Road. Andrew and Margaret made their home just outside Surgoinsville, Hawkins 
County TN. They arrived in Tennessee about 10 years after it's original settlement. Arriving in the 
Tennessee area about 1779 (after a brief sojourn in Virginia). 

Andrew and Margaret's family consisted of the following children Jam es, Hugh, Nancy, Margaret, 
Andrew, John, and Sarah. 

In order to put the family into historical context some background on the history of Tennessee and 
Hawkins County might be helpful. Eastern Tennessee has a very rich history. Tennessee's first 
settler was William Bean. Settlement officially began when he built a cabin on Boone's Creek in 
1 769 (William Bean's wife was saved by Native American Heroine Nancy Ward from being 
burned at the stake ). Hawkins County is nicknamed "Mother of Counties." It is named 
after Benjamin Hawkins member of the Continental Congress. 

Stanley Valley, where Andrew and Margaret settled, is flanked by ridges. This valley stretches 
26 miles from Virginia and through Hawkins County, to the mouth of Big Creek . Andrew and 
Margaret lived in the Possum Creek area of Northern Stanley Valley. The location was described 
by Hugh F. Crawford as in "Stanley Valley 17 miles above Rogersville." James Forgey lived 10 
miles above Rogersville on a creek named for the family, Forgey Creek. Settlers, like the 
Forgeys, sited their land as close to creeks as possible. These creeks provided water for the 
family, animals and crops. Areas where creeks and rivers ran were fertile areas for farming. 
Some of their Possum Creek neighbors included the Looney, Coldwell, and Weddle families. 
These names can be found linked together in the county records. 

The Forgey family basically lived on the western frontier. It was a common pattern for the Scots 
Irish to settle in frontier areas. Living on the edge of civilization meant living with danger. 
Indian attack was a real threat in the early days of settlement. Settlers clustered around Forts or 
Stations for protection. A grandson of Andrew and Margaret Forgey, Hugh Forgey Crawford, 
related a story of a thwarted attack in the area where Hugh's family lived ( moccasin tracks were 
found near his uncle's cabin, dogs scared these intruders way) 1 . From Goodspeed's History of 
Hawkins County TN, "The Indians made several incursions into Carter's Valley, but finding the 
people in the forts and prepared for them they retreated without doing serious damage." The 
Forgeys lived near Carter's Valley in Stanley Valley (Carter's Valley and Stanley Valley 
run parallel to each other north of the Holston River). Sporadic attacks and kidnappings did 
continue for some time. An infamous attack took place in Stanley Valley in 1792. Harper 
Ratcliff s wife and three children were killed by Native Americans 2 .

Boone's Wilderness Road was a major thoroughfare to the west. The Forgeys lived close to this 
major highway. Although they lived in an isolated spot not far away streaming masses were on 
the Wilderness road heading for the Western Territories. Many of their descendants would join 
this tide. 

As a Reynolds' cousin related life in Tennessee in those days required a great deal of physical 
labor by all members of the family including children. The land had to be cleared, and a cabin 
built. When the Forgeys and Reynoldses first settled in Tennessee they were described as poor 
( although the family did manage to raise 200 schillings which would be the equivalent $1768 
in today's money, which they used to pay for their land) . Once these families carved out a place 
for themselves in the wilderness they were able to raise their standard of living. Land was the 
primary source of their wealth. Andrew Sr. and son James purchased land grants from the State 
of North Carolina. Another source of income was the sale of whiskey. Andrew Forgey was 
convicted of selling liquor without a license and above the rates. 3 Money was difficult to earn in 
early America. Money was scarce in those days. Selling liquor would have been one of the few 
ways of earning money, and a person needed money to purchase land. They could barter for 
some goods, but purchasing land required money. 

The people of Tennessee took pride in being self-reliant. They lived in isolated areas and had to 
be self-sufficient. However, they did need to occasionally buy manufactured goods. To meet this 
need "itinerant merchants with caravans of pack horses established trade routes throughout the 
territory. Because of an almost total absence of money, trade between merchant and pioneer 
farmer, and between farmer and farmer, was largely carried on by barter. On the whole the trader 
and peddler drove hard bargains, exchanging pot metal rifles, likely to explode at the first charge, 
poorly soldered utensils, and adulterated powder for the frontier farmer's prime peltries. As fur- 
bearing animals grew scarce, by-products of the pioneer home - bacon, corn, lye-soap, sorghum- 
sugar and molasses, and strong whiskey - became the medium of exchange, along with Spanish 
silver, which trickled in as river trade with Louisiana began to assume importance." 4 Peter 
Norrison's Store in Knoxville was one of the first places where these pioneers could buy luxury 
goods such as gold jewelry, watches and kid gloves from Philadelphia. This well stocked store 
also sold essentials such as rifles from Philadelphia and Europe. It was a difficult task to haul 
merchandise into Tennessee. Most merchandise was brought from Philadelphia on very poor 
roads. The horses were sometimes only able to travel 10 miles or 12 miles at a time. Ann Royall 
described seeing a dozen heavily ladened wagons a day in the 1820's. 5 



James Forgey Sr. purchased a bible in 1 805 
which was printed in Philadelphia. This 
demonstrates it's importance as a prime 
manufacturing and trade location. This bible is 
an important source of family history for 
Andrew and Margaret's family It contains the 
dates of birth and death for Andrew and

Margaret. 

After the Louisiana purchase the Forgeys may have benefited from the new opportunities to trade 
with this new Territory. After the acquisition of this territory East Tennessee farmers began trading 
their products with this region, such as Indian corn, whiskey, and irish potatoes for cotton, which 
they in turn traded for merchandise from Philadelphia. 6 

The Forgey family likely were subsistence farmers as John Reynolds describes in his book. 7 The 
diet of the family was probably similar to this extract from the "Taste of the States": "The 
pioneers grew corn, potatoes, some vegetables, and a little fruit. Most settlers had at least one 
apple tree. In the mountains and hollows, deer and wild turkey were plentiful. Raccoon, whose 
lard was considered choice, abounded. So did bear, squirrel, and rabbit. A hog or two provided 
meat for winter, The women learned to make stews of opossum and squirrel, and stews have 
remained a part of Tennessee cooking... The cuisine of Tennessee followed the terrain. In hill 
country the main dishes were basically stews and roasted meats." 8 

The wilderness has always played an integral role in the life of the people of Tennessee. First 
and foremost it provided food and raw materials. This dramatically beautiful landscape inspired 
early settlers with awe. They also felt like the primitive wilderness was a force to be tamed and 
exploited for their benefit. The settlers built very sturdy log cabins to keep the wild animals, 
such as bears and panthers, out. They were also built sturdy for defense against the Native 
population. "Throughout East Tennessee the cabins of old frontier days, with their little porthole- 
like windows and dog-trots (open runways), still stand, bearing the scars of Indian tomahawks 
and bullets." 9 

The Forgey log cabin was probably furnished in the typical style of the time. The cabin would 
have pegs on the walls to hang clothes. A washstand, water bucket, and three legged stools would 
likely also be found. Animal furs were used as blankets. 10 The cabin would be furnished with at 
least one bedstead. As some French tourists noted in the 1790's beds were at a premium, at that 
time, and several people might have to share a bed. 11 A letter written by a traveler in McMinn 
Tennessee addressed a bed bug problem. 12 

As far as religion goes the Forgey family continued to practice the religion of their forefathers. 
Namely, they were Presbyterian. 13 Andrew and Margaret's son James was a prominent member of 
the New Providence Presbyterian Church in Surgoinsville where he and his wife are buried. 14 
James was an elder in the Church. This Church was founded in 1780. Hugh and Catherine likely 
belonged to the Washington Pike Presbyterian Church in Knox County, TN. Women during the

11 

early days of settlement were especially isolated socially. Attending Church would have been one 
their only social outlets. 

The Second Great Awakening swept through Tennessee in 1800. This religious revival was 
influential when it came to the establishment of religion in Tennessee. The Baptists and 
Methodists were leaders of the Great Awakening in Tennessee. Their fiery camp meetings 
resulted in increased memberships for these sects. This style of worship had a great appeal to the 
people of Tennessee. As a result the Baptist sect gained membership, however, the Methodist 
Church showed the greatest gains in membership. The Presbyterian Church suffered a schism 
due to a disagreement over participation in the camp meetings. The traditional Presbyterian sect 
suffered membership losses due to the formation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church which 
adopted a reformed worship based on the camp meeting revivals. Most of Andrew and 
Margaret's descendants were members of the Cumberland sect of the Presbyterian Church. 

The Forgey family likely participated in the leisure time activities as their peers. Men participated 
in more leisure time activities than women. Long hunting, horse racing and corn husking were 
some of their favorite pastimes (baskets were woven from the husks, and they also used them to 
stuff mattresses). Dances would likely have been a favored activity for both sexes. It sounds 
like occasional dances accompanied by fiddle music were held in the pioneer settlements. Dancing 
and singing often occurred after the corn husking gatherings. 

The telling of tall tales seemed to be another pastime. The rich literary tradition of the south was 
spawned through this early oral tradition of telling Tall Tales. One of my grandfather, Charles 
Forgey's, favorite authors Mark Twain was certainly influenced by this tradition. 

The 4th of July and New Year's were the most popular celebrations in early America. 
This description of a 1793 4th of July Celebration in Knoxville Tennessee illustrates the kind of 
celebrations which took place, "At two o'clock in the afternoon the federal troops under the 
command of Capt. Richards paraded before the public and fired the federal salute. 15 " At 4 o'clock 
a banquet was held for prominent citizens, a fireworks display followed that night. If the Forgeys 
did not witness any of these celebrations they likely heard about them, or read about them in the 
Knoxville Gazette. 

A celebrated event occurred when a future King of France paid a visit, in 1797, to the Stanley 
Valley area. He visited the Armstrong Mansion in Stony Point. He criticized the lack of culinary 
diversity in Tennessee. Hoe cakes were served everywhere (cornbread like cakes). He did get a 
good square meal at the Armstrong Mansion, however. 

The Flat Creek area of Knox County, TN was another focal point for the family. In 1787 Hugh 
Forgey (son of Andrew and Margaret) was a chain bearer for the surveyor Thomas Hutchings. The 
family likely became acquainted with the area at that point, and soon after began purchasing land 
there. In 1788 James Forgey purchased a land warrant for 640 acres in Knox County (then 
Hawkins County) TN. Hugh Forgey, and his wife Catherine, first settled in Knox County on land 
he purchased from his father. They lived in the Flat Creek area of Knox County 16 Their neighbors

Publishing Company, 1900)

included Hugh's sisters Nancy Crawford, and Margaret Roberts. Other neighbors were Hugh's Aunt 
Ellen Reynolds McDaniel and Uncle James Reynolds (he lived near Harbison Crossroads where he 
built a Fort in 1788). They also had some dangerous neighbors. America's first serial killers, the 
Harpes, lived in the area. There were two other Forgey families living in the area; the Andrew 
Forgey family and Alexander Forgey family. They purchased their land from Hugh's brother 
James." They were likely cousins of Hugh and James. Andrew appears to have sold his land some 
time later and migrated to Maury County, TN. Alexander Forgey later migrated to Tippecanoe, 
Indiana. 

The first newspaper to be printed in Tennessee was the Knoxville Gazette in 1791; printed in 
Rogersville. A year after it's founding Hugh Forgey placed this ad: "I gave a bond to Leonard 
Rice for $250 with a bearing date of November last, and payable on June next. Rice has given 
three horses that are now proven stolen. I will not pay said bond." Hugh Forgey. Hugh's brother 
James also placed an ad about a rifle he found. Before this newspaper news was often passed 
along in Taverns, a principle meeting place of the male population. The first US Mail service in 
Knoxville began in 1795 and was delivered twice a month. 18 Ann Royall describes the stage 
coach bringing in mail six times a week in the 1820's. Three times a week from Nashville and 
three times from the east. 

Early Knoxville was a very rowdy settlement with numerous saloons and brothels. It later became 
a respectable, refined and affluent town. Hugh Forgey often served on Juries at the Court House in 
Knoxville. Ann Royall described the citizens of Knoxville as more refined than Huntsville 
Alabama. 

Another asset owned by some Tennessee families were slaves. We do know Andrew Sr. owned 
at least one slave named Bacchus. 19 We also know his son James owned a slave family. 
According taxlists his son Hugh didn't own any slaves. In the early days of settlement slave 
ownership was common, with most families owning slaves at some point. The hilly terrain of 
Eastern Tennessee was not suited to plantation style farming. Small farms were predominate 
and slave ownership was also small scale; with most families owning five slaves or fewer. The 
early slave population was about 12 percent of the total population. At the time the Forgeys 
purchased their slaves the value of a slave was around $100 (about $2,300 today). An anti- 
slavery movement was able to gain a foothold in Eastern Tennessee because slavery never 
became essential to life in this area. Andrew and Margaret's daughter Nancy Crawford seemed 
to sympathize with the anti-slavery point of view (she asked that her slaves be freed upon her 
death). The presence of these slaves in communities caused anxiety. Their plight piqued the 
consciences of some, and fear of slave uprisings were in the forefront on the minds of others. A 
law was passed requiring the monthly search of slave quarters by authorities in order to head 
off an uprising. With these tensions brewing, Andrew and Margaret had no idea what the future 
would hold for their family. The Civil War was just a distant looming shadow. 
Both Andrew and Margaret lived in Hawkins County, TN until their deaths. The Descendants of

Andrew and Margaret are now scattered all around the United States. A few remain in Tennessee, 
and are primarily the descendants of John Forgey and Nancy Armstrong. 

Notable relations 

Two of Andrew and Margaret's granddaughters, James Forgey's daughters, married John A. 
Rogers. 20 He served in the Tennessee Legislature. His father Joseph Rogers founded Rogersville. 
His father also ran a Tavern in Rogersville which the young Andrew Jackson patronized. His 
grandfather Thomas Amis purchased the land that Rogersville sits on from Davy Crockett's 
grandparents. James Forgey was a prominent citizen of Surgoinsville in Hawkins County. He 
made his money through land speculation. 

Margaret Reynolds had some notable connections through her brother James and his wife Mary 
Bannon's family. Her nephew Robert Reynolds was a leader of the pro-slavery movement in 
Illinois. He was elected to the Indiana Territory Legislature, and was also a Judge. He was a 
large landholder in Illinois. His son John Reynolds (and Margaret's grand-nephew) became the 
third Governor of Illinois, and a US Congressman. 21 Margaret's grand-nephew Robert Bannon 
Reynolds became an Attorney General in Tennessee. He also became Paymaster for the US 
Army in Mexico. During the Civil War; "According to family legend Longstreet mapped out his 
assault on Knoxville on the Reynolds' dining room table." 22 

Hugh's brother-in-law John Beaird was described by Gov. John Reynolds as one of the most 
effective Indian fighters in Tennessee History 23 He was often called upon to lead militia attacks 
against the Native Americans on the frontiers of Knox County. He was also a member of the 
Tennessee General Assembly. 

Andrew and Margaret's grandchildren, and great grandchildren, generally supported the 
Confederate cause during the Civil War. Archibald's son John A. Forgey was killed during the Civil

Andrew FORGEY, Signature 



lW~ ~ § 

Spouse: Margaret REYNOLDS 

1. Andrew FORGEY, son of FORGEY ( - ), was born on 4 February 1732 in Ireland. He 
married Margaret REYNOLDS in 1760 (approx.) in Ireland. Before 1800 he was in 
New Providence Presbyterian Church, Hawkins Co., TN. He died on 3 August 1809 in 
Hawkins Co., TN. 

We believe that Andrew Forgey appears on the 1766 Religious Census for Ireland. A 
Hugh Reynolds also appears on the Census for Creggan Co. Armagh/Louth. Hugh may 
be Andrew's father-in-law. Andrew FORGEY Sr. may have had a brother named 
Alexander FORGEY. He lived in Washington County, Virginia. The names of his 
descendants are unknown. Both Alexander and Andrew, it is believed, originally settled 
in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. In 1773 Andrew FORGEY purchased land there, 
and Alexander FORGEY was a witness to this transaction. Alexander and Andrew 
appear on tax lists for Peters Township from 1772 to 1774. In 1779 Andrew FORGEY 
Sr. was convicted of selling liquor without a license and above the rates. The trial took 
place in Washington County, Virginia. Andrew FORGEY eventually settled in the 
Surgoinsville area of Hawkins County, TN. A creek named Forgey Creek is located 
there. The Jacob ROLLER family lived in nearby Scott County, Virginia. Andrew owned 
400 acres of land according to the 1 809 tax list for Hawkins County. Andrew owned one 
slave named Bacchus. 

Margaret REYNOLDS, daughter of Hugh REYNOLDS ( - ) and Mary DUER ( - ), was 
born on 25 December 1741 in Creggan Parish, Co. Louth, Ireland. She died on 1 June 
1 828 in Hawkins County, Tennessee. She and Andrew FORGEY had the following 
children: 

+2 James FORGEY (1764-1837) 

+3 Hugh FORGEY (1766?-befl830) 

+4 Nancy FORGEY (1768-1837) 

+5 Margaret FORGEY ( 1 774- 1 847) 

+6 Andrew FORGEY (1776-1830) 

+7 John FORGEY (1777?-) 

+8 Sally FORGEY (1779- )

Second Generation 




James FORGEY 



2. James FORGEY, son of Andrew FORGEY and Margaret REYNOLDS, was born on 8 
January 1764 in Ireland. He married Margaret F. CALDWELL on 8 September 1791. 
He died on 17 March 1837 in Hawkins Co., TN. 

Hugh Crawford b. 1806 wrote this about James " Uncle James was not a very stout 
man, but a very enterprising man of good sense and judgement. Settled in Hawkins 
County on the Stage Road 10 miles above Rogersville. There lived and died. Had a 
family of 6 daughters and 1 son." He also said he was a religious man and an Elder in 
the New Providence. 

James Forgey was appointed administrator of the Estate of a John Forgey in Hawkins 
County, TN in 1793. He later sued Joseph Beard on behalf of the estate. 

Margaret F. CALDWELL was born on 18 April 1768 in Hawkins Co. She died on 7 
March 1846 in Hawkins Co. She and James FORGEY had the following children: 

+9 Nancy FORGEY (1792-1793)

Spouse: Catherine FISHER, Cathorine Forgy vs. Benoni Coldwell 1814 Hawkins County, TN 



3. Hugh FORGEY, son of Andrew FORGEY and Margaret REYNOLDS, was born in 
1766 (approx.) in Ireland. He married Catherine FISHER in 1788 (approx.). He died 
between 1809 and 1830 in Hawkins County, Tennessee. 

Hugh Forgey Crawford wrote this about Hugh "My Uncle Hugh's family I cannot say 
much about him, he died in early life. I have never seen him after I was old enough to 
remember him. I was named for him and Uncle Hugh Crawford. Hugh Forgey once lived 
in this county (ie Knox) a few miles north east of here." 

The first mention I find of Hugh is when he signed a Sullivan County Petition 1786. In 
1787 he is a chain bearer for a surveyor, Thomas Hutchings, in Knox County, TN. In 
1792 he placed an ad in the Knoxville Gazette regarding stolen horses. It reads ""I gave a 
bond to Leonard Rice for $250 with a bearing date of November last, and payable on 
June next. Rice has given three horses that are now proven stolen. I will not pay said 
bond." In April of 1795 a Hugh FORGEY sued Joseph BEARD in Knox County, TN. 
Hugh had previously testified in the James FORGEY adm. of John FORGEY vs. Joseph 
BEARD case, which took place in 1794 in Knox County. Joseph accused Hugh of 
perjury in that case, stating that he uttered a "damned eternal lie." Hugh sued Joseph for 
slander. He asked for $1000 in damages, but only received $5.00. On 2 Oct 1802 Hugh 
wrote a letter to the Cherokee Indian Agency, which is now in a collection at the National 
Archives. 

Hugh and wife Catherine were mentioned in her father's probate and received $2.00 
from the estate. In 1806 Hugh left Knox County, TN and briefly relocated to Jackson 
County, TN where he signed a petition in late 1806. By 1809 he is back in Hawkins 
County, TN living on his brother John's property in Stanley Valley (according to 
Andrew Sr.'s will). We know Hugh is alive in 1809 when he appears on his father's will 
and a Taxlist for Hawkins County, TN. He may have died shortly after, because 
Catherine appears in Court represented by brother-in-law, James, in 1814. 

Catherine FISHER was the daughter of Archibald FISHER ( - ). She and Hugh FORGEY 
had the following children: 

+18 Archibald FORGEY (1790-1865?) 

+19 Andrew FORGEY (1794-1879) 

+20 James A. FORGEY (1803 ?-bef 1870) 

+21 Mary "Polly" FORGEY (1800- )

Nancy FORGEY 



4. Nancy FORGEY, daughter of Andrew FORGEY and Margaret REYNOLDS, was born on 

13 August 1768 in Ireland. She married Samuel CRAWFORD in 1788 (approx.) in 
Hawkins Co., TN. She died on 13 March 1837 in Knox Co., TN. 

This is how Hugh described his mother's family: "I will say something about my dear 
Mother's family. Her parents came from Ireland, My Mother at the breast, so she could 
say that she crossed the great herron pond, or the great briny deep, as the Irish would call 
it. They were strictly protestants." 

"In religion Presbyterian. My Mother could sing or repeat a song that was composed 
before or at the time of the great battle of the bind waters between the Protestants and the 
Roman Catholic in the time of the bloody persecution. She learnt it from her parents. I 
am vext with my self that I did not make notes of it when I was young. I recollect but 
little of the poetry, it was a very striking thing.". 

Samuel CRAWFORD was born on 5 June 1758. He died on 14 May 1822 in Knox 
County, Tennessee. He and Nancy FORGEY had the following children: 

+22 Andrew CRAWFORD ( 1 790- )

21

married Hannah. At some point he married Isabella. 

This is what Hugh Forgey Crawford said about Andrew Jr. " Uncle Andrew Forgey lived 
on the old homestead in Hawkins County. Stanley Valley 17 miles above Rogersville. He 
was left in charge of his mother. He had two wives, the name of his first wifes maiden 
name was Hannah., her given name I don't recollect. His second wifes maiden name was 
Isabella McPheters. He was a very stout man, one very active of mild temper, religious. 
He had three children by his first wife and one by the second . .. They caught the

ARMSTRONG. 

John was given a tract of land in Stanley Valley, Hawkins County, TN, by his father 
Andrew Sr. According to Andrew Sr.'s will by 1809 Hugh lived on this land and 
apparently John was already in middle Tennessee. He was a Captain in the Giles 
County, TN Militia.

after 1854 in McMinn County, Tennessee. She and John FORGEY had the following
