My fourth great-grandparents Benjamin FOREMAN 1745 Frederick County, Virginia to Clark County, Kentucky to 1828 Clark County, Ohio and second wife Mary "Polly" VanDIVER 1760-1770 to before June 25, 1860 probably in Virginia. In 1796 Benjamin bought 227 acres on the waters of the 4 Mile and Stoner Creeks a few miles south of Winchester the Clark County, Kentucky county seat. This is only 5 miles east of Boonesborough founded by Daniel Boone in 1775. Gerry Simmons research shows Benjamin's first wife was Else or Alsey ALLEN, according to Doug Allen and his father Paul W. Allen. Another Allen Family Tree is here. The Allen's made a similar migration from New Jersey to Virginia.

Benjamin is buried in the Wragg-Tuttle Cemetery which is down a country style grassy lane in the back of his farm bought in 1817 from President James Monroe. He bought several hundred acres of land in 5 parcels right up to his final acreage November 1827 from President John Quincy Adams before Benjamin died in 1828. His tombstone was barely legible in 2003. A Revolutionary War Veteran John S. Craig died March 24, 1838 was originally buried in his family cemetery before removal in 1906 to the Fletcher Chapel Cemetery a mile or so down the road. Gerry Simmons has some tombstone photos on Find-A-Grave.

Benjamin FOREMAN's parents are likely the Foreman's found in West Virginia from New Jersey connecting to the 1645 Foreman Family from England. I have not had time to study recently found documents I've received nor to look for my own.

Genealogy research is never complete, important details might be missing, and often contains errors, so let me know if your research contradicts mine. My Indiana and Ohio family research comes from conversations with relatives, scrapbooks, library research, online records, visits to courthouses, final resting places on family farms and cemeteries. Families in other states rely mostly on the research of others. Links to other web sites often change then won't work, so if you find broken links, have additional information on any families, corrections, photos, or anything to add to the history of our families, please leave a Comment in my Guest book, join my Follis Families on Facebook page for updates and new discoveries, or send an Email. The Wayback Machine archives most old web pages so copy and paste the broken URL address to find the missing 404 pages that disappeared.
