Fortenberry Forefathers

Welcome to the Fortenberry Family website. It was created for all Fortenberrys and Fortenberry lovers to meet and share our history. We are descendants of James Leith Fortenberry born about 1755, probably in Anson County, North Carolina, but our group consists mostly of people who come from the four sons of Sloan Fortenberry. We affectionately refer to them as "The Four Brothers".

Jack and I have begun meeting with family members to scan and preserve their photos.  Items, such as, clothing, dishes, etc. can be photographed and added, also.  Much of that info is in attics, closets, boxes and photo albums in our homes.  As we put these things on the website, we can all enjoy a more complete family history and get to know each other better.
