Biographical Sketch of Joseph T. Forth

Joseph T. Forth. This gentleman is a native of Virginia, born September 17, 1849, though he did not reside in that State after he was two years old, for the reason that his parents moved to Grundy county, this State, and brought the subject of this sketch with them. He went with the family on the Arkansas trip mentioned in the sketch of James Forth, and returned when they did. He received his education wholly in Missouri, and after his school-days were over, chose farming as a business, and is still engaged in the same laudable calling. He owns a neat little farm of eighty acres, which he has put in the highest state of cultivation, it being well improved and nicely fenced with fine young hedge.

He was married, in Daviess county, November 12, 1874, to Miss Ellen Smith, a native of Missouri. By this union they have two children; named respectively, Nellie F., born December 5, 1876; and Alder C., born September 26, 1880. The former still survives, but the latter died January 6, 1881.
