This research remains a work in progress. This is the story of the descendants of Johann Fahrni/Forney of Pennsylvania and the descendants of Ulrich Krahenbuhl of Switzerland. Both men came to America in the early 1700's and settled in Pennsylvania. Their families prospered in America. They were hard working men and women who farmed the land. From Pennsylvania they went west, settling in Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and on to California and Washington State. My generation of Forney's is the first to not farm the land since coming to this country hundreds of years ago.
Some of my research contains material that has been contributed by other Forney and Grabill cousins and fellow researchers. Thank you all for your generous contributions of information and photos. I welcome contact from any fellow researchers or cousins.
