Looking for information on a John Fortner born Sept. 4, 1873 In tennessee from the Dickson County Tn. 1880 Census. In the 1900 census from Tenn. it lists John Fortner's mother as it looks like Freasy Fortner. But it is actually Theresa Fortner his foster mother who adopted him with her husband.Looking for who his real father and mother were. The 1880 census says his father was born in Ga. His mother it says was born in Tenn. He may have been called John W. Tatum when he was adopted. His adopted parents were Charles D.Fortner born 1838 and Theresa Parris born 1844. John Fortner married Lizzie Rochelle in 1895. Contact me Lee Fortner at my new address [contact link]

My great grandfather John William Fortner born Sept. 4,1873 and born in Tennessee married a lady Lizzie Rochelle in the 1890's. They had nine children, one boy Harvey died at about 2 years old. They eventually had 8 children living and one that died for a total of 9 children. In 1914 John Fortner went to town probably riding a horse and was never seen again. My great grandmother Lizzie took all his possessions and burned them in the fireplace, pictures everything. We had thought maybe some one killed him and threw him in Duck River in Centerville,TN. but he was seen years later in ALa. and Miss. He met a lady name Sallie Barefoot the widow of J.J. Barefoot and they were joined in some knid of Indian ceremony. She was Chickasaw we believe. This was probably around 1920 or so. Any one have any information about John or Sallie and if they had any children e-mail me. Anyone ever met him I would like to talk to them as I have a picture taken in MO. that may be him with his son Bernard Fortner. Lee Fortner
