FORSHNER – John Shaw, b. 01 Nov 1830, d. 27-Jan-06, bur. Hollywood, CA, USA
Submitted by Craig Forshner Feb-02

In doing research of my family tree, I discovered that John Shaw Forshner, a grandson of Major Andrew Forshner (one of the founders of Pugwash), was my great grandfather. He was born on Novermber 1, 1830, the son of John Forshner and Elice Harrison. John Shaw and Christine Anne MacKay had 13 children, one of which was John Gordon Forshner, my grandfather, born 1882 in Greenville Station. John Gordon Forshner married Bessie McLean and they had one son, John Gordon Forshner II (my father), born July 12, 1905. John Gordon Forshner II married Maude Craig Hays in 1930 in Yazoo City, Mississippi. They had two children, Dr. John Gordon Forshner, born May 27, 1936, and myself, Hugh Craig Forshner, born July 9, 1938. Unfortunately, my father was killed in an airplane crash near Louin, Mississippi, on June 19, 1938, less than a month before I was born. Dr. John Gordon Forshner married Barbara Hart in 1963 in Benton, Arkansas. They have two children, John Gordon Forshner IV, born February 6, 1968, in Jackson, Mississippi, and Adrienne Hart Forshner Kinsey, born in 1972 in Dalton, Georgia. John Gordon Forshner IV, a pilot for United Parcel Service, married Carrie Miller in 1997. Adrienne Forshner married Sean Kinsey Atlanta, Georgia in 1998. Hugh Craig Forshner married Jo Ann Brewer in January, 1966 (divorced in 1976) and we have one child, Elizabeth Ashlyn Forshner of Seattle, Washington. I presently live in Lakewood, Colorado.

I would like to know more about my great grandfather:
John Shaw
Born November 1, 1830
Died January 27, 1906 (buried in Hollywood Cemetery, Los Angeles, California)
Lived in the Pugwash, N.S. area.

I hope my information is useful.

Thank you,
Hugh Craig Forshner
