    Foreman, James of this parish (Edward & Marie Barrett) m 5 Feb 1805 Susan Cole of Natchez (James & Maime Cotter) Wits: David Harmon, Joseph Andrus, John Andrus, John Close.
    Fr. Louis Buhot (Opel Ch v 1-B - Protestant Marriages 1787-1830 p 12)
    Forman, James of Opel (Edouard & Marie Burnett) m 5 Feb 1805 Susanne Cole of Natchez (Opel Ch: v.1-supp. #24)

    (Fontenot: Acadia Parish, La Vol 1 P 42)
    The Cole and Foreman families both lived for a time in the Natchez District of Mississippi before moving to Louisiana. Members of both families were early settlers in the area which is now know as Acadia Parish. James Cole, who was Susan's father and James Foreman are both shown to be owners of riverbank strips of land fronting Bayou Plaquemine Brulee on an Acadia Par. map that represents land ownership prior to 1803. James Foreman was the original owner of his tract, claiming ownership by settlement and occupancy. (Fontenot: Acadia Parish La Vol 1 P 21)
    Susan and James were married 5 Feb 1805. the Marriage was registered in the Opelousas Catholic Church. (Hebert: Southwest La Records, vol 1 p 135).
    Apparently James did not retain ownership of his land on Bayou Plaquemine Brulee but moved his family to another area. Several bits of information substantiate this. George King, probate judge from Opelousas at the time of James' death i3 stated in the succession that he had traveled 70 miles to the last residence of the deceased. It is not possible to travel that distance from Opelousas and still be on Bayou Plaquemine Brulee. Further, Hampton Holland, orally relating family history stated that his grandmother, Zilia Ann Foreman (dau. of James and Susan) was from the Lacassine, LA area. Lacassine is about 70 miles "as the crow flys" from Opelousas. (St. Landry Parish Court House. Succ # 619)
    Susan remarried in 1835 to Nelson Higginbotham, widower of Judith Ware. Mr Higginbotham received his authority to celebrate marriages in 1832 and thereby was a Justice of the Peace.
    Susan died in 1881 at age 92.
    Sources for the children of this marriage and their spouces is Hampton Holland and Sadie Davis by Melba Brown Martin P 35, (Bell City Library)

    Research Notes:
    Trees on Rootsweb show the James married To MCCleland as the son of James and Susan Cole. Dates are close to not working. Forman/McCleland m was 1819 Forman/Cole m 1806. If James Jr b after marriage, then 1806 makes him only 13 to marry in 1819. Est his b at 1800 is 4 yrs before marriage.
    Also, mother Susanne Cole - b 1789. He could not be her son and born 1800 or any time earlier. That puts her at 11. If she were 15, that puts him b at 1804, meaning he married at 15 - which is the only possible age to meet both dates, but not likely. Doesn't quite add up.

    update 30 Nov 2015
    Looking at 1820 census and age groups, James Sr. and James Jr. are both in the same age range, 26-44. Each has to be at the respective far end of the range, meaning James Jr. was born abt 1796, so his marriage to Elizabeth in 1819 would be 23 years. However if Susanne Cole born 1789 is his mother, that puts her age at his birth at 7. James Sr.'s age 18. James Sr. must have had a 1st wife.

    Died:
    James Forman Sr; succession #619, filed St. Landry 2 Jun 1833.

    James married Susanne Cole on 5 Feb 1805 in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana. Susanne (daughter of James Cole (Coale) and Jemimah Curtis) was born on 16 Dec 1789 in Natchez District, Mississippi; died in 1881. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    By Henry Chandlee Forman, Ph.D.
    The Formans of England-
    For more than six hundred years, from the earliest records of the family in Lincolnshire, England, to the present day, the spelling of the name Forman has been unchanged. In 1316 land in Lincolnshire was granted to one Ralph Forman; in 1373 Thomas Forman, and 1375 Robertus Forman, a juror, were inhabitants of this county. In the Lincolnshire Rebellion of 1536 Robert Forman gave five marks to the rebels.[Lincolnshire Notes and Queries, vol. 11, p. 249; vol. 18, p. 58; Linc. Rec. Soc. vol. 30, pp. 77, 87, 227]. All through the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries there were Formans living in England, chiefly in Lincolnshire, according to the records.
    The most distinguished member of the family seems to have been Sir William Forman, Knight, Lord Mayor of London, a native of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. He was the son of William Forman, a yeoman of Gainsborough. His sister, Elizabeth Forman, married Morice Morgan.
    Sir William Forman was Knighted on October 18, 1537, and was an Alderman in Parliament form Cripplegate Ward in the City of London from 1529 to 1545. He was High Sheriff of London in 1533 and Lord Mayor from 1538 to 1539. During a Muster of Citizens in 1539 he rode in a procession and carried a coat of black velvet embroidered with a cross; on his head was a black velvet cap with a rich jewel; and about him rode four footmen apparelled in satin hose and fine white silk.
    By trade Sir William Forman was a haberdasher. In 1544 he, with others, leased from King Henry VIII the Manor of Tullesworth in Surrey. In the same year, on August 30, he married Blanche Palmer, a widow, of London. He died on January 13, 1547, and was buried in the Church of Saint George, Botolph Lane, in East Cheapside, London. A monument was erected there to his memory.
    His great grandson, Robert Forman went to Amersterdam and received the Charter for Flushing, New Amersterdam, which is now Queens, New York. The Forman family flurished and soon spread to New Jersey, Pennsylvannia, Virginia, and Kentucky. They followed the migration patterns to North and South Carolina and on down to Louisiana and Mississippi Territories.
    In the Natchez area, they formed the Forman Colony, and brought the first four-wheeled cart to the Mississippi Territory.
    The Spanish Census of 1790 shows George "Jorge" Forman and family next to William "Guillermo" Irwin. They were settled on the Sara Bayou and Coles Creek area.

    Item: Victor Richard bought his land from Edward Foreman in 1794. Thomas Hoffpauir age 76 testified in the land claim in 1812. Hoffpauir said the land had been occupied by Foreman "more than 30 years ago, for several years;" that after the sale to Richard, "Primo occupied same on Richard's account for 2 or 3 years., after which Foreman was employed to tend Richard's cattle, where he resided and cultivated for 5 successive years."

    Notes for EDWARD FORMAN:
    On Oct. 16, 1779 after raids by so-called patriot, John Willing, into the British West Florida settlements of Natchez, Baton Rouge and Manchac, Edward Forman and 18 others signed oaths of allegiance to the "United Independent States of North America" in the presence of Capt. Pickles who had captured the British armed vessel on Lake Ponchartrain.
    "We whose names or marks are here unto set and subscribed, being settlers and inhabitants on Lake Ponchartrain between the Bayou La Combe and the River Tanchipaho, do herby acknowlege ourselves to be natives as well as true and faithful subjects to the United Independent States of North America.
    An whereas on the tenth day of last month, William Pickles, captain of the navy of the said States, did arrive in this lake and made prize of the English armed sloop, West Florida, wh had kept possession of the lake for near two years before, and the said William Pickles, Esquire, did on the twenty first of the same month, land some of his people, and take possession of this settlement and gave us all the protection against indians and others that his force would admit of, and suffered us to remain on our possessions till further orders; we, therefore, consider ourselves belonging to the said States, and are willing to remain here and enjoy our property and priviledges under them, the said United States. October 16, 1779."

    Occupation:
    August 18 1758, Noted in South Caroline Gazette as 'master of the Brig Pretty Peggy'(From further research- which was found on a Google search and one for the "Clark Family"(clark@ems.psu.edu), I found this Edward Foreman, born 1717 at Margate Kent, England. Died on Ship "Pretty Peggy 1759 at the age of 42. - Another entry, his father: John Foreman b. 1616 Margate Kent, England; d. January 1760(84 yrs) buried 25 January 1760). Perhaps this is the same John Foreman who brought prisoners, bonded people, etc from Ipswich England to the Colonies-as noted in many entries of the Ship Henry & Francis-Including Scots who had been convicted mainly because of their religious beliefs.)
    In 1685 there is a posting of the Ship Henry and Francis of NewCastle bringing in Passengers to Perth Amboy, NJ mid December 1685-Included on the list is a John Foreman who was banished.

    On Oct. 16, 1779 after raids by so-called patriot, John Willing, into the British West Florida settlements of Natchez, Baton Rouge and Manchac, Edward Forman and 18 others signed oaths of allegiance to the "United Independent States of North America" in the presence of Capt. Pickles who had captured the British armed vessel on Lake Ponchartrain.
    "We whose names or marks are here unto set and subscribed, being settlers and inhabitants on Lake Ponchartrain between the Bayou La Combe and the River Tanchipaho, do herby acknowlege ourselves to be natives as well as true and faithful subjects to the United Independent States of North America.
    An whereas on the tenth day of last month, William Pickles, captain of the navy of the said States, did arrive in this lake and made prize of the English armed sloop, West Florida, wh had kept possession of the lake for near two years before, and the said William Pickles, Esquire, did on the twenty first of the same month, land some of his people, and take possession of this settlement and gave us all the protection against indians and others that his force would admit of, and suffered us to remain on our possessions till further orders; we, therefore, consider ourselves belonging to the said States, and are willing to remain here and enjoy our property and priviledges under them, the said United States.October 16, 1779."

    re: Bosman Hayes
    Here is the first set of documents on Foreman that I have. They were used as proof in a DAR application, so they are solid. Marie Bonet's name is spelled Burnett, but the earliest documents we saw all had it spelled Bonet. They were Galvez papers and there were a lot of Bonets listed including her father. I don't seem to have copied any of that - actually, I don't think they would let us copy it with a copier, and we were short on time for having them copy it however they would copy it. I think it was a matter of several days to have them do it and we were going home before they could get it done now that I think about it. It sounded to us like the Bonets had been in LA for a very long time, too. I may see if I can get it copied and mailed to me next time I go up. I hope to go this spring at some point. I haven't been up since Thanksgiving.

    an Ezekiel Forman entered Natchez in 1790, along with a Eusebio Bushnell in his party. Also in that party was Jacobo Huffman - most probably father of David Huffman who married Clark - whose mother was Robert. Robert's sister Nancy Robert m Green who was also from Natchez. Perry is another one whose family intermarried into this line, and arrived in Natchez at this time


    AMERICANS ARRIVING in SPANISH-HELD NATCHEZ 1788-1790

    *These reports were written by a Spanish officer, Carlos de Grand Pre to Governor Estevan Miro; therefore many of the names are in SPANISH or a PHONETIC attempt to convert the name to Spanish. Some are in English. The term "settler" means those with intent to settle the district. In 1788, a royal order encouraged American immigration and trade, and colonist began arriving in larger numbers than ever before. Few of these arrived via the land route, however; most arrived on flatboats, coming down the Mississippi. The majority came from Kentucky. Many settled in what would become Adams, Amite, Claiborne, Franklin, Jefferson and Wilkinson counties. List taken from records in the MS Dept. of Archives and History, Jackson MS.

    _
    From a family history authored by George Eleazer Bushnell of Nashville in 1945 and now available online (see pp. 227-28), we learn a little about the adventurous E. Bushnell who sent the missive back east:

    *432. Eusebius, b. Norwich, Conn. 1 Feb. 1748, bapt. 12 Feb. 1749, d. in Florida about 1812, m. 13 Sept. 1772, Borodel Latimer, b. New London, Conn. 12 Apr. 1755, d. before 1792, dau. of Jonathan and Lucretia (Griswold) Latimer, m. 2nd, Opelousis, La. 23 Apr. 1792, Margerit (or Margaret) McCarty, dau. of Juan and Margaret (Maklein) Makarti, and widow of Baron Patricio (R-109).
    Eusebius Bushnell, probably m. at Lyme, Conn. where his first two children were bapt. served as Capt. in Rev. War in Lt. Col. Experience Storr's Regt. at New York in Fall of 1776, June 1777 appeared before the Norwich Court as Capt. Eusebius Bushnell of Lyme, Conn. and accepted office of Exec. of the est. of his brother Ezra, who had dec'd. He probably removed to Norwich as here his son Ezra was bapt. in the Christ Episcopal Church in 1778 and on 30 Sept. 1782, he brought his children Lucretia and Matthew to be bapt. in the church at Great Barrington, Mass. In 1786 he was in Nashville, Tenn. (then North Carolina), where he was a witness in a case, and signed some papers, and on 29 Dec. 1785 he was appointed as one of three Commissioners to examine into claims of soldiers and sailors residing in the district, and in 1787 the grand jury of Davidson County, presented to the court at Nashville, James Hickman, Thomas Bradford, and Joseph Brooks for disorderly conduct in throwing down Capt. Eusebius Bushnell and breaking open Squire Nichol's door (R-110), between 15 Dec. 1786 and 20 Jan. 1789, he bought and traded land grants under the firm name of Dobbins and Bushnell (R-111), and of 28 Aug. 1789, he bought three negro slaves, perhaps to act as porters on his trek over the Natches Trace to New Orleans, La. He acquired lands in Florida under a Spanish land Grant, afterwards confirmed by the U.S. Government as shown in Reports of Land Grants, Claims in Florida, 'Wusebius Bushnell vs. United States, memorial dated 13 Mar. 1799 for 600 acres, also decree of Gov. White for same dated 1799." "It appears in evidence that the claimant was in possession of the land in the year 1803, that his son was killed in 1800 or 1801, and that the claimant died in the year 1812. The board ordered the claim of 600 acres be confirmed to the unknown heirs, and their heirs, as far as the U.S. have interest in the same."

    SWLR-1750-1800, p. 324 by Hebert
    Text: FORMAN, Catherine - Calvinist (Edward & Marie Bosnell-Bushnel), m. 11 June 1793 Thomas Laughlin - a Calvinist, of Virginia(Thomas & Esther Forman) Wits: Andre Mondon, Peter McNeal, William Hayse, Jr. Fr. Pedro de Zamora(OpelCh.: v1-A,p.44)

    Looking at who Wm Hayes Jr, who witnessed this in relation - his son Wm III
    is Marie Forman. So, it makes sense that Catherine is his dau-in-law's sister and
    he witnessed the marriage. He also witnessed the marriages of Mary, Jenny and Elizabeth Forman.

    Mary m 1784 (to his son James Hayes)
    Jenny m 1788
    Eliz m 1790
    Catherine m 1793

    The records say Catherine is dau of Bosnell - not Burnett.
    Looking at the two names B o s n e l l
    I am coming to the theory that she is indeed Burnett -- and possibly Burnett is not the correct name. But the writing could easily be B -- then the O not fully closed - -making it look like a U -- the R could easily be mistaken for an S in script if it again was left open. -- Ns match -- Es match -- then the LL or TT -- if TT's not crossed or the line too far above the lines -- could easily be interpreted as LL.

    I'd like to know if there are any other references to Bosnell -- I don't know of any. I do know there were a couple of other spelling variations of Burnett i.e., Bournet - Burnet, etc.

    I feel good enough about this to make those notations and move Catherine back to Sr. and go with the theory that Bosnell is indeed Burnett - or vice versa. Possibly the name Burnett should have been Bosnell all along, but I think they're one and the same married to Edw Sr. The challenge is to figure out the proper name. If they are the same -- then she's my direct ancestor; so that's a little more motivation to solve this question.


    21 Nov 2010
    marriage
    ?After studying out Edward Sr and the children, and their children, with dates we know and estimating from that the ones we don't, I believe that Marie Bosnell, mother of Catherine, is the wife of Edw Jr. Catherine's b.d. is more applicable to Jr. than to Sr. Marie Burnett had a child after Catherine's birth, so another reason to suspect the Hebert Records meant Edward Jr. and Marie Bosnell.

    Gut feeling and logic is telling me that Catherine is child of Edw Jr. and Edw Jr. was m1 to Boswell and m2 to Perry. This negates nothing solid that we have - we only have except speculation anyway. We've all assumed that the Edw who married Rascoe and Burnett is the same as the Edw of Edw & Bosnell, but there is nothing that backs up that speculation. Hebert did document an Edw was m to Burnett & Ravcoe but he did not document a marriage of Edw & Boswell except in the m record of Catherine. I think that's the only mention of her -- is it?

    Of Edw Jr's children,
    If Julia (1789) and Nathan (1793) are not Nancy Perry's and IF Jr. m Bosnell c 1775 in order to have Catherine in 1776,
    then we've got a chronology of Edw Jr:
    b 1749 VA
    m Boswell c 1775 (age 26) (father is in either FL or Lake Ponch here)
    Catherine b 1776 (age 27)
    large gap here -- maybe even another wife inserted here??? this time period incl father Edw Sr migrations from 1779 Lake Ponch, 1785 Bayou Chicot, & move to Opel 1785 to Opel -- so, assuming Jr. stayed w/ Sr.
    Julia b 1789 (age 40)
    Nathan b 1793 (age 44)
    Rachel m 1797 (age 48)
    married Nancy Perry 1798 (age 49)
    Isaac b 1799 (age 50)

    Surname: Everett 
    Sex: M 
    Birth: Abt 1690 in Nansemond County, Virginia, Formed 1643 (Now City Of Suffolk) 
    Death: in Martin County, North Carolina Formed 1774 From Halifax And Tyrrell Counties
     
    The 1704 Virginia Quit Rent Roll listed Simon Everett in Isle of Wight County and William Everett in Nansemond County. When Bob Everett's ancestor Simon Everett bought land in NC, he said he was "of Nansemond County, Virginia." The William Everett family who moved from Nansemond to Martin County in the 1730's had strong Turner connections. Wills and deeds prove that William Everett married Sarah Speir, daughter of physician James Speir (see below) of Nansemond Co, VA. Sarah and William Everett named a son James, probably after Sarah's father. They also named a son Samuel Turner Everett. Sarah and William Everett's daughter Sarah married John Pollard. Sarah and John Pollard named one son Everett Pollard and one son Turner Pollard. I would guess that either William Everett's mother was a Turner or that Sarah Speir's mother was a Turner.

    The 1704 quit rent roll for Isle of Wight County, Virginia listed Henry Turner. No Turners appeared in the Nansemond list.
