Can anyone help me find information on James Huntington Forman? He lived in Oak Bowery Chambers county. I have heard through family that he owned close to 30 slaves at one time, and would like to know if this is true. He lived in Chambers from the 1830's till his death and his family continued to live there until the 1860's. He had a daughter named Laura Celestia, born in 1842 married William Anderson Jones. Thankyou for you r help, it will be greatly appreciated.
