A fellow by the name of Grenville Mckenzie, I believe, published
material in which my Laforge branch could be traced back to the Adrian
Laforge you mentioned.
With certainty, we can trace ourselves back to one John Laforge Jr.
and Sarah Rachel Horn, a weaver who died in 1749 at Piscataway, New
Jersey. Their son John Laforge III, wife unknown, was the father of my
great great grandfather, Mathias Teple Laforge, born in 1785, probably
at Cold Spring, Phillipstown, Dutchess County, New York. His son Abel
Teple Laforge was the father of the Adrian Laforge mentioned in my
posting in the Gen Forum. Deeds and other documents were found in the
possession of one of my Laforge ancestors regarding land owned in or
near New Brunswick, New Jersey by the John Laforge, Jr."
HOPE THIS INFORMATION WILL BE OF INTEREST. Best wishes, Virginia T.
