My grandfather, Grover Fortner, was from Warrior. He moved to California 30's....he had 5 sons and three daughters.

My father, Cliff and three of his brothers were all soldiers in WWII....Uncle Warren was killed in Iwo Jima on 3/9/45.

I am just curious as to the family we may have in Alabama.

Is this part of the FORTNER family descended from Sylvester FORTNER and Nancy DANIELL?

In answer to your question this morning. William Grover Fortner was the son
of William Sylvester and Nancy Daniel. He was born December 11, 1890 in Warrior, Alabama.
He married rosetta Jane Stroud that was born January 11, 1895 in Ozark, Arkansas.
They were married January 5, 1913 in Hanna, Oklahoma.
I don't know the names of Grandma Fortner's parents.

Rick,

Your Grandfather would have been my Grandfathers older brother. Walter Demetrious. Check this page from the 1900 census: http://www.us-census.org/pub/usgenweb/census/al/jefferson/19...
Also, here is a link to information I posted on Family Tree Maker a few years ago; http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/f/o/r/William-N-F...

Rick,

Hello, my name is vonna and i seen your posting on a messageboard about the Fortner family. I also am trying to trace that line but mine are also from MS> and TX.
My Grandmothers' maiden was Fortner. She was born in Madison co. TX. Her father was Isaac Andrew Fortner from either MS. or ALA. Her mother was Martha Jane Spikes from Webster co. MS. Do you know of any connection to your Fortner?
I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks,

Vonna
