Regarding the information below...
Under Jack F. Campbel's letter, thought you might like to look this one
over......
William R. Forrest, born 1829 Married Margaret Herrin 1859. They had one
son named Henry Jacob Forrest (born 1863 In Edgefield County, SC.), and 2
daughters, Elaine Forrest born 1832 and Elizabeth Forrest born 1836.

If William R. Forrest, born 1829 , he could have daughters born in 1832 and
1836.

Also, I have from the 1860 Federal Census, Edgefield District, South
Carolina, 247 248, a female E. Z. May born 1849.
860 Federal Census, Edgefield District, South Carolina, Dorns Mill 2 July
1860,
