I read your email with great interest. My 3 x great grandmother was Jean
Forrest, sister of the James Forrest you are looking for. They were the
children of William/James Forrest & Margaret Leel/Leil.
The following is an extract of James & Margaret in the 1881 Census:
Census Place: Lonmay, Aberdeen, Scotland

From the death records of James' wife Margaret (nee Simpson), it seems that
she was married previously to a George Morrice (if I remember correctly).
I have more information on the children of James & Margaret and also that of
Jean Forrest's family (she married a Thomas Ironside). Their daughter
Margaret was my great-great grandmother.
I would be willing to share information with you.
