Comments:Hi Everyone:

I'm one of Mabel A. Battle's(nee Foor) grand daughters. She was the daughter of Eva May Exline and Joseph A. Foor. I have been on an interesting journey regarding geneology as it pertains to the Foor Geneology website. Shelly has helped me in the past connect my mom to a step sister she hadn't seen in over 60 years to get closure about her father David McBarron Battle. Unfortunately, my mom, Mabel's daughter passed away in 2011 and since her passing, my
mom's geneology has been heavy on my heart and has now become a lifetime journey. I wanted to publicly thank Shelly for all her help in the past and I am open to receiving emails from any family members of Joseph A. Foor to understand the history on his end. Currently, I've been heavily involved on the Exline geneology side as I am learning about many prominent generals, US Presidents, possible royalty, and even martyrs on this side that it has taken much of my time to research. I would like to know more about the Joseph A. Foor side and I am hoping this email will appeal to those who could share information (beyond what is on the www.foorgeneology.com website to understand his life and his lineage). Any help would be appreciated. Please indicate in subject matter - Joseph A. Foor Geneology when emailing so that it doesn't get spammed. Thank you so very much - if anyone is on this site from Eva May Exline side, please also feel free to email me with Eva May Exline Geneology in the subject line. Her side is very interesting and I would like to learn if there are interesting facts on the Joseph A. Foor side.

Sincerely,


Susan E. Crane (grand daughter of Mabel A. Battle (nee Foor)

I seem to remember as a child seeing a booklet that traced the Foore/Fuhr family back to Germany in the 1600s or so, but since Grandma died in 1980 I've no idea who may have the book, if it even still exists. I'll have a look through the archives for any info, but I'd be glad to learn more. Thanks!

She just got teary eye and said, "it's true, but we don't like to talk about it."

Does anyone have any nifo on the Foores intermarrying?

My brother has tried keeping the grave marked it never had a stone placed on it but my brother Norman made and installed a bronze one for her to keep her memory alive. Her Husband John Linn was my fathers older brother, my dad said John was not good to her and she had a tough life. Dad maintained her grave till his death. The had one child that I know of for sure-Jerry Linn and I know he had children to several women but we could not keep track of them because he was a want-a-be country song writer who traveled a lot and a heavy drinker like his Dad. Jerry left our area in the 1970,s and recently I heard he had passed away but we don't know where. Places he lived were Tennessee, Wyoming, and Texas. the last location I know was Texas he was to have a Mexican woman a migrant worker as either his wife of life partner and I know they had at least 3 children together. 814 506 1222 or cell 814 386 9140

Comments:Just wanted to stop by and say "hi". The newest Foor baby is Emory (Butch) and Linda Foor's granddaughter. Savana arrived January 3,2110. She weighed in at 5 pounds 8 ounces and is 17 inches long. Her mother is Christina Marie Foor, Butch's oldest daughter. She will carry the name of Foor proudly in honor of her grandpa. She is the end of line, as Butch has no grandsons.
I still am in touch with my brothers mother in Arizona. Two of them live near Phoenix and one was killed in 1983 in a accident. I looked for forty-five years for them and you helped find them in a few days. Thanks again!

Comments:I knew nothing about this side of my family, not even the names. But I happened to stumble from one little piece of information to another, and landed on this site.

I know this is my family because the only information I had was my grandfather was Charles C. Koebel (my mother Gladys' father) and my grandmother was Lillie Mae Kyser ( had also seen it spelled as Kiser). Then somewhere on the web, perhaps in a census reference, I learned my great grandmother's (Clara Bell, sometimes listed as Beel/Biehl) last name was Foor, married to a David Kyser.

On a whim I merely typed in Foor family history, or something similar, into the search engine, and now you're reading this note. I am so happy to find out so much about my heritage, the more I read and learn, the prouder I am. This is the side that gave me a wonderful resourceful mother as a role model, and I can see where she got it. She just would never quit. Now that same hard work ethic has transcended to my son, Jade Michael Swiger. Reading the history of the Foor Hotels founded by Wm Foor resonated. To all of the family I have never met, I love every one of you! This site is a treasure trove of genealogical information for me. My mother's information under Lillie Mae (Kyser) Koebel is erroneous, in that her last name (second marriage) was Kurpil (married to Stanley), and not Kurtin. She was born Aug 17, 1917, and died in Steubenville Ohio Jan 7, 2003. Her first marriage was to my father (Noel Ellis Taylor), to whom she had four children: Noel Jr., Jack Ronald, Joan Carrol, and myself, they divorced around 1944. I am the only survivor of the four. Also, she lived in Wellsburg, WV, not the adjoining town of Follansbee, WV as noted.

Whoever put this site together has a phenomenal sense of order and clarity. It is massive. Kindest Regards, Sylvia J.(Janie) Taylor Swiger

Frona was my grandmother and I was mostly raised by her and even lived with her for 8 years and I paid careful attention to pretty much everything she told me about growing up and her complete love for her family. She was an amazing woman and I proudly honor her memory by carrying on her legacy of love and devotion to her clan. God bless all the Foor ancestors and all the current and future members of an amazingly hearty breed of people!!!

About 1956 or 57 my father was in St. Louis and was able to talk to PeeWee and watch him play ball. According to my father PeeWee told him the Reese family owed the Foors everything, but that is all I know. I am curious if any knows of the connection between the Foor and Reese families in Kentucky.If any one has any information or has heard the same story I would love to hear from you!

I was told the following information about the FOOR's who stated that Donald, Robert and the other brother had grown up in ALTOONA, PA. along with Dorothy McMinn Foor.
Donald, Robert and another brother,(whose name escapes me)were sons of Robert Foor Sr. "who was adopted and raised by two spinster women named FOOR in Altoona, Pa."
Donald moved to Pittsburgh with his wife Dorothy and had children: Donna, Darrell and Linda Foor. They have a cousin, Joan Foor, daughter of the brother I can't remember his name. This is the first time I have seen any reference to a FOOR from Altoona, Pa. Hope this may help Erik Wilt.

Comments:HI...
First I want to say.... what a great site...THANKS!!! I loved reading through it and found some very interesting items.

Most of my Fuhr/ Foor's were in Phila. PA.

I am a descendant of the Fuhr/Foor line from Philadelphia. PA. I have traced my line back to John Lenhart(Leonard?) Fuhr/Foor that arrived here during the 1740's. I am saying he is part of my family as I have a Keziah Fuhr born 1841 in Philadelphia, PA to Catherine Furh (no Maiden name for her as yet) And, I do believe Catherine's spouse's name was William Furh. I found a William Furh drowned in June 1849. It says he was a basket maker as were several other Fuhr men during that time period. The reason I believe William and Catherine were spouses is that his death residence in 1849 and the residence of Catherine (as head of househiold) and her children on the Phila. PA 1850 Census were exactly the same. I have questioned this though because Cahterine's birth date is about 1801 -1803 and his is about 1812. Quite an age spread, but who knows, perhaps that is correct.

Keziah Furh is my 2nd great grandmother and spouse was William Norbeck. They were married in Phila. PA. about 1859. Keziah died 5 August 1894. They had seven children one of which was Philip Melvin Norbeck.

Philip Norbeck married Amelia Maltilda Charlotte Louise Arndt in Philadelphia 27 May 1883. They had nine children one of which was Amelia Caroline (my grandmother).

My Grandmother Amelia Caroline married William James Bieber in Phila. PA. 5 March 1920. They had six children one of which was my mother Marie Sophia Bieber born 3 Jan 1928.

My mother, Marie Bieber, married Stanley Stephen Stankiweicz in Phila. PA. on 21 April 1945, They had five children, four living at this date June 2009. I am their oldest living child... Carolyn Marie Stankiewicz born 8 April 1947.

I am having a hard time tying William to the other Fuhr/Foor family during those early years. I have several early census reacords but as they did NOT list spouse and children's names it is hard to place William and Catherine on any of them.

If anyone has any other info about these early Fuhr's/Foor's they feel may help me in this connection I would appreciate the help......and if there is something I can do to help someone....please let me know.

Comments:I am the daughter of Patricia McClain Davis, daughter of Jesse V. McClain, son of Lois Ephindia Swope, daughter of Isabella Agnes Stewart Swope, daughter of Susan Foor Stewart, married to John Stewart. I've been given info connecting Susan(Susannah) to John Foor. I last found Susan Stewart on the 1850 Census in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, in the household of her son-in-law, Asa Beaman. She lived with her daughter, Jane, and her family, as well as her own children, Charles Stewart and Temperance Stewart. I can find no trace of her after this census, so I have to assume she died before 1860. Does anyone have any definitive info on her? I can find no info on John Stewart. Asa and Jane Stewart Beaman moved their family to Winnebago Co., Minnesota in the 1860 census. Temperance married Hiram Andrews in Winnebago, Minnesota in 1860, and then they moved to Iowa by 1870 census. Temperance was last in the census in 1880. Hiram Andrews remarried in 1882, so she had to have died between 1880 and 1882. He had moved on to Washington state. Charles Stewart was in the household of his sister, my grgrgrandmother, Isabella A. Swope and her husband, Peter VanDeventer Swope, on the 1860 census. She and Peter had her sister Margaret E. Stewart, age 5, in their household on the 1850 census. I would appreciate any additional information anyone could share with me.

Comments:My grandmother was Helen E. Foor, born 1891, married to Frank Julian. She was raised by her great aunt, Helen N. Anderson (don't know her maiden name). I was told that her parents had died when she was very young, which is why she was raised by her great aunt. My grandmother had a brother, who my father said was killed working for the railroad in Columbus, OH when a railroad car jack collapsed, dropping a railroad car on him. My grandmother died in 1957, in Detroit, Michigan, of lung cancer. Unfortunately, very little is known about her parents. She was apparently quite young when they died. We don't even know their names. Any idea how I would figure out what their names were? I know that my grandmother's mother was of English decent and her father was of German decent. I don't know if they were first generation or from long before. My grandmother had four children, James, Charles, Mary and Rose.

I have tried to email you but apparently you're not receiving the emails. They aren't bouncing back to me, though. You may want to check your spam folder.

You said several messages back that your grandfather was not in the database. If you're talking about your grandfather Wilt, then no, he is not. Your grandfather Foor most definitely IS in the database. With so many FOORs in a database of over 32,000 individuals, it's easiest to search on a maiden name. Also, according to my data, your grandfather Chester Foor had more than two brothers, although the two you mention were closer to his age. He had older ones also.

Comments:I have some more information about our branch of the Foor Family
provided by my uncle Leroy Foor who is 83 years old now. Leroy Foor
was born in Bedford, PA. to Chester Theodore Foor and Martha
Vermont (Gilbert) Foor.

Now Chester Theodore Foor, my grandfather was born on July 2, 1886 and died on September 7, 1963. His parents were Jeremiah and Hannah (Dole) Foor.

My Foor grandparents were married in Harrisburg, PA. on April 25,
1905. They lived in Bedford, Pa. then moved to Duncansville, PA.
and finally to Altoona, PA.

My grandfather, Chester Foor had 2 brothers, Charles Foor and
Edward Foor and both resided in Bedford, PA. My uncle Leroy Foor tells
me that Edward Foor was a Sheriff of Bedford County, PA. in the early 1900s. That has to be verified.

Chester Foor's father was Jeremiah Foor, my great grandfather,
was a civil war veteran. He lost a leg during the Civil War. Am
told that there is a monument in his honor at Gettysburg, PA. Am also
told he was the Monarch of the Foor family in Bedford, PA. And may
I add that Leroy remembers the name of his horse was "Billy".

I have requested obits from surviving family members living in Blair
County, PA. Am told that they do have some pictures of Foor Family
reunions at Egulf's Park right outside Bedford, PA. Am told this
municipal park is in need of restoration. Also I am told that the
Transrun Methodist Church near Bedford contains Foor Family genealogy.
That makes sense because my grandparents, Chester and Martha Foor were
methodists attending the Eldorado Methodist Church in Altoona, PA.
which is located on the southside of Altoona. My father Phil Wilt has served as a deacon of same church.

Comments:Hello gang, I am Mark Eric Wilt son of the now deceased Hazel G. (Foor) Wilt. At least on of my surviving five uncles is really up on Foor history. There are some old family bibles with family trees surviving. My grandparents were Chester and Martha (Mcguire) Foor first of Bedford County, Pa.

I am interested in doing a genealogy showing Foors serving our nation in times of war back the French/Indian War. We seem to be peacemakers as well as evidenced through the sacrifice of the Settlement at Burnt Cabins. Have been told my grandfather is a direct decendent of four (4) brother orginal settlers of Penn's Woods.

As things would go, you may all be proud (or not) that President Reagan picked a Foor as one of the orginal Agents of Reagan's Drug Enforcement Agency, DEA. That would be, nevermind, I don't think we should expose him.

Would be happy to gather materials for you, I do have some old pictures of Foor Family reunions in Blair County, PA. back in the day. Maybe some of my mother's family may have more pictures than I, I do have several sources in mind.

Comments:Hi to all the Foors. My name is Mark Eric Wilt, son of deceased Hazel G. Foor of Blair County, Pa. My mother was the youngest of 9 foors raised by Chester and Martha Foor of Bedford and then Blair Counties, Pa. Her siblings were, Frank, Dan, Jerry, Leroy and William her brothers, and Margeret (Peg), Bessie and Charolette all of Blair County, PA. Leroy, Bill and Aunt Charolette are still surviving.

I was searching the database and notice my grandfather is not mentioned in the base. My grandfather's brother was said to be a Sheriff of Bedford County, PA. Am told there is a statute erected in his honor there although I have never seen it.

All of my uncles served the Second World war and came home safely, Frank, Bill, Dan, Jerry, and Leroy. My aunt Bessie was an army nurse during the WWII. In addition I am told my Grandfather's kin served in the Civil war and there is a statute erected in honor of one of them. In addition at Valley Forge, Pa. the Foor name appears on numerous monuments to the fallen making Foors traceable to the Revolutionary war.

I am trying to look for concrete evidence that my grandfather is a direct decendent of the four (4) brothers that founded Burnt Cabins, PA. It is a remarkable story that I was told directly by the family that provincial government directly under William Penn himself authorized the burning of the village to keep the peace with Native Americans.

Of course the project to restore the Flour Mill of Burnt Cabins, PA. is well known however the earliest tax record of the Mill dates to 1770 and I have yet to ascertain the owner of the Mill at that time. If the founders of Burnt Cabins were the Foor Brothers and part of the burning of Burnt Cabins, then we could say that the Foors of Fulton and Bedford county are some of the orginal settlers of the New World and in particular, Penn's Woods in my family's case.

Other oddball history I have been told is that someone on my grandmother's side, McGuires, was murdered in Harrisburg, PA. sometime in the late 1800s and the body was found dismembered in a Steam trunk, Jack-the-Ripper kind of stuff.

Am told that a Foor was hung as a horse thief in Bedford County, PA. Knowing my mother's family, I bet he left a tavern one late night and got on the wrong horse.

Through family bibles, I think I have some good information, but I need to know exactly what is needed. If someone can confirm my memories I would greatly appreciate connecting my maternal family of Foors back to Europe. Have already learned of some noble blood in the DNA, that would be interesting.

Thanks all.

Comments:What a great website - thank you. My husband has Foor's on his side, his GGGgrandmother was Martha Jane Wilson who married Thomas F. McKinney. I have lots of information up to and including Thomas & Martha Wilson McKinney. Husband is Thomas William McKinney who was son of Frederick & Florence Cutler McKinney. Fred's parents were Hamer and Bessie Cotton McKinney and on back, Hamer was son of Thomas F. and Martha Jane Wilson McKinney. I do have pictures of most, however, would not know how to post them.
