Topic: Marie (Forpahl) Harris
From: Becky Best
Date: Tuesday, May 17, 2005 09:31 PM

I have a photo of a baby - note on back: Marie (Forpahl) Harris. She was named after me. Daughter of Jim and Lucy Forpahl. "Me" refers to Marie Barber Boyts. One of Marie's aunts was Iva Forpahl Barber, married to Fred Barber. I assume this baby is from that family. If you are interested in seeing the picture, please let me know. I'll be happy to e-mail to you. (Not sure of date, nothing specific to give it away. Aunt Marie was born in 1908. I'd guess 1920-1940 ish!)

I am trying to locate my Dad's Uncle Charlie and Aunt Muriel BRYAN. I know Dad corresponded with "Uncle Charlie" and I think he last lived in Anthony, KS. My Dad was Mason Henry BRYAN, b. 11 Jul 1899 in Boone Co., MO, the son of Elam Sabinas BRYAN born 17 Jun 1870 in Illinois and Martha "Mattie" Marshall ASBURY born 02 Apr 1872 in Columbia, Boone Co., MO.

your husband can get a copy of his birth certificate from the state where he was born, and the name and other info will be on it. You don't need his mother for that.

also copies of marriage licenses are a matter of public record and available at the county where the couple were married. A copy is only 1.00 or you can view it for free.
