I am looking for information on the LaForge family of Perth Amboy, New Jersey. I have a printed family history which states that my grt grt grandmother, Mary Anne LaForge, was born there in 1810. This history states she was the daughter of William LaForge and that her mother's maiden name was Kelly. Mary Anne's obituary in 1891 states that she had a brother William living on Staten Island and a sister Mrs.Turner of Elizabeth, New York. Since I can't find an Elizabeth in New York, I think they must mean nearby Elizabeth, New Jersey. Mary Anne was attending a school in New York City, and living with a sister in New York when she met William Rees (my grt grt grandfather), whom she married in 1830, in New York. She died in Keokuk, Iowa.
I have been in recent contact with a probable cousin who traces her lineage, with the aid of a family Bible, back to Abner LaForge living in Perth Amboy in 1830. We suspect Abner and William are related, but have been unable to get enough information. Would love more information to connect these families. Anyone got any clues? Thanks in advance.
