Surnames: FORD, FORTE, VANHOUTEN
I have just learned that my 3rd great-grandfather FORTE was part of an Amish community in Pennsylvania where "3 rivers come together". For some reason he was put out of the clan, so he changed his name to FORD and left Pennsylvania about 1812 and relocated in Ohio. His wife's last name was VANHOUTEN. Does anyone have any idea if such a story can be proven? Do the Amish keep records of these types of events?
