Hi, I have been trying to find the Defforest family in Ohio myself. My adopted mother was a deforrest untill I think 1950 she had a daughter with Howard E Deforrest her name is Barbara Lee Deforrest born on feb 29 1948. I have the birth certificate. she was born in conneaute Ohio at 491 Walnut street. Ashtabula county. I have been trying to find Howard he would now be 80 and Barbara. My Mother has since passed in 07. any help would be great. I'm sure the deforrest family would like to have the locket with him in his navy uniform. And Barbara might like her birth certificate. you can contact me at 843 415 2292 or charlie.d.wires@us.army.mil or ruta2ed@gmail.com I really look forward to hearing from you soon.

Howard married my Mother, Ruth, in 1964, and adopted me. He and my Mom, had 4 more daughters and another son. He has other children older than I am from previous relationships. I forwarded your message to 3 of my younger sisters. They are all in Ohio, 2 live in Conneaut. Howard liked to be called "Gene". Sadly, he passed away from a massive coronary on June 18, 1980. However, I'm sure my siblings will be in contact with you once they read this.

Hello,
I saw your reply on the Deforrest board and am also a daughter of Howard Eugene "Gene" Deforrest. I was adopted at birth and only met him twice when he came to visit. At that time I did not know he was my biological father. After he passed away I met his mother Mary C. Wilson at her home in Bushnell and she told me of her mother being Cherokee and showed me the moosehide pocket from her grandchildren in Toronto. I met your mother when she was waitressing at Baker's steakhouse in West Springfield. I have also met Corky (she was best friend's with Laura Teed Skeel my best friend Mary Ann Teed's sister. And have met Dana when she worked at Giant Eagle as a cashier. I lived in Conneaut 28 yrs. and now live in Painesville. I knew there was a missing sibling from his brief marriage to Patricia S. and am assuming it was the mother of the gentleman you were replying to. I have found Mary C. Smith back to her parents Stranford and Bertha C.Smith, and think I have found Bertha's parents Ransom & Zellia Hills in Beaver County Pa. but have not been able to follow Gene's father's side. Do you have any information that might help. I know that Mary C. Deforrest listed herself as a widow in the 1930 census when Howard was 1 year old, they were listed as boarders in Niles Ohio. and she was working as a waitress. I found an article that a Howard Deforrest was killed as a flagman on the railroad in Mahoning listed as being from Huntington Pa. originally and a picture article of Gene when he was stationed in Calif. as a "big brother" to a child at a handicapped home. If you could give me any information to further the search I will be happy to share everything I have found with you and the family. My name is Melanee Simpson, I am a librarian at Fairport Harbor, my address is 1651 Mentor Ave. # 508 Painesville, Ohio 44077 and my email is cherokeelib@hotmail.com ..cell phone 440-251-1657/ work 440-358-0119.

Hi, my name is Dawn Holliday. You were looking for information on Howard Eugene Deforrest of Ohio. My grandfathers name was Howard E Deforrest. He married my grandmother Patricia K Stevens in Conneaute, OH in the early 1950's (not sure of exact dates) They had four children Kathrey, Shad, David and Beth Ann. Due to issues in the relationship they divorced in the late 1950's or early 60's (again not sure of date) My grandmother left with the four children and moved to Fl where she remarried and her new husband adopted all the children under his last name of Dopler. After my grandmother Howard left Ohio for awhile and then returned. He married another lady (don't know her name) and they had several children (not sure how many or their names at this time) Later he passed away and I'm not sure when that happened. I don't know if any of this relates to your mother but I believe it does. I do know that Howard had been married prior to my grandmother and the dates of Barbara's bday were before my grandmother. I hope this helps u. I will talk to my grandmother and see if she knows of Barbara and any info she might have. If u know any info on Howard please share. My email address is dholliday0803@gmail.com Thank yoy!

Hi my name is Dawn Holliday. My grandfather was Howard Eugene Deforrest of Conneaut OH. He married my grandmother Patricia Stevens and they had four children Kathrey, Shad, David, and Beth. They were divorced shortly thereafter where my grandmother took the children to Fl. She was remarried and her husband adopted the four children and they took on his last name of Dopler. I know my grandfather Howard died around 1980 from a heart attack. I also know that he had been married before and afrer my grandmother and had several more children. I dont know much about Howard as my grandmother or my mom, uncles, and aunt never talk about him. Also he dies when I was around 5 yrs of age. Sadly I will never get to meet him. I have only seen one picture of him. I would live to find my mothers other siblings and get to know all of them as they are my aunts and uncles! Any info u could share would be wonderful and amazing. You can emaol me at dholliday0803@gmail.com or call me at 828-527-3366. I look forward to hearing from you!
