* Foister/Marcum and Smith/Parrett Family Ties*

Updated December 23, 2002

I am seeking information on Dave Forrester (Foister, Foster,Forrester) md. America Bailey b 1859. The family lived in Clay County, Ky. Dave was believed to have died in Lexington, Ky. America is buried in the Polly Marcum Cemetery in Clay County, Ky. Another line that I am seeking information on is the Parrett's that I have traced in Knox County, Laurel County, Jackson County, Ky. Armstead Parrett is the oldest b.1788 that I have found documentation on at this time. I would appreciate any information that anyone could share with me. Some of the other lines that I am tracing include: Couch, Marcum, Bailey in connection with the Foister's (Forrester). On the Smith line I am researching : Thomas, Elza, Hoskins, Mardis, Jones, Swafford to name the closest families.On the Parrett line I am connecting with the Forbis (Forbush, Forbes, Fawbush), Parker, Moore, Bishop, Davidson. This could go farther but most of these lines are in the general area of Laurel County although I have traced some before Kentucky. I will share any information that I have that would be of use to anyone who wishes to share or who is just beginning to research. I have traced not only my line but also brothers and sisters and will share what I have. You can reach me through my e-mail at the following address:
