Hi John

Listen, I was curious.......

I have a Fortenberry marriage in my database, seems to be a generation later
to this Jacob Fortenberry that Donnie posted for you.

Note the Ada Jane Simpson union:

What Fortenberrys are you researching? Think these two; John and Jacob
connect?

Too, I show that Lydia Elizabeth Sofley was the daughter of a Milligan:

Descendants of Enoch Sofley, Dr.

1 Enoch Sofley, Dr.
.. +Melissa Aveline Milligan b: March 18, 1837 in Reed's Creek, Lawrence
Co., Arkansas m: May 11, 1854 d: May 25, 1862 in Lawrence Co., Arkansas
......... 2 Lydia Elizabeth Sofley b: December 24, 1858 d: August 30,
1917
............. +Neil Coke
......... *2nd Husband of Lydia Elizabeth Sofley:
............. +James Knox Simpson b: December 03, 1850 m: December 07, 1873
d: January 10, 1896
......... 2 Faith Sofley
............. +Alex Little
......... 2 Eady Sofley
............. +Crittenden Smithee

Sorry that it is not much information for you on the Milligan,
Marsha.......but, might help somewhere.
