    I saw your message in “Find a Grave”. Yes, I am connected to Violette Kennington Fortenberry. However, I am not the expert on the Fortenberry line…. that would be my sister, Adrianne Fortenberry Criminger. Our Mom and Dad started the research in the late 1970’s with Andie (Adrianne) working on details, facts, pictures and finally finishing up with “The Fortenberry Families of Southern Mississippi”. It was a huge undertaking and now that most of us “kids” are retired, we are kicking around the possibility of doing a second printing. Not sure about when just yet, but there is so much to work on!! Thanks for the message… looking forward to hearing from you……. Teresa

      Hi Teresa,
      I have emailed Adrianne in the past and asked about a second printing. I would most certainly buy a couple copies of a second printing as I don’t have a first printing. I am descended through this direct line.

    • Teresa, I have a copy of that book & it is fabulous. It was the first family history I ever read. It inspired me to research my family & made me dream of writing my own book!
      I vote for a second book!

    I am having trouble proving the connection from Calvin Kennington Fortenberry 1806 to George Washington Fortenberry 12/30/1842 to Warren Henry Fortenberry 10/8/1876 through Oscar Underwood Fortenberry 5/14/1912. I have tried dna tests and the basic versions say I am not in the direct Fortenberry lines being researched. Is there something wrong with my progression?

  3. Hello, my grandmother Florene is from Mississipli and said one of her grandparents are a Fortenberry…We are building a family tree and so I will be getting more details soon…

  4. Would love to purchase a hard copy book or even pay for a down load copy of the book. It would be nice if it were updated to current data. Of course, I know that is lots of work!

    Can anyone help in the location of the Hollis H. Fortenberry Cemetary? The Fortenberry Families of Southern Miss by Adrianne F. C. has a rough drawing of where it is but having been in the area of State Line Road in 2015 (from Colorado) I could not locate it specifically. I am in the Hollis Horton Fortenberry line and would love to find Hollis with GPS. His wife and most of my father’s family is in Silver Springs and Mt Herman but Hollis was buried in a small cemetary close to his home, “300 yds west of the old house.” In another website Victor Alford recently advised he had been there 20 yrs ago and “propped Hollis broken headstone up as it was broken by a tree”…….. any help would be appreciated for my next trip…. Thanks
