John Hunter Forsyth
« on: Tuesday 06 March 18 14:36 GMT (UK) »
My great-uncle, John Hunter Forsyth (known as Jock) was born in Tillicoultry, Scotland in 1920 and died in 1968 in Dover, England. I know very little about him, only that he was stationed in the South Coast of England during WWII and that he had a wife called Joan. They had 2 children, a daughter who I don't have a name for, and David Forsyth. Apart from that, I know nothing else, but am intrigued to find out more.

Jock's parents were Joseph Hunter (1875-1949) and Elizabeth Anderson Forsyth (1893-1951). He had two brothers, David and Tom, and a sister, Liz.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes Ev, then Clara J M Forsyth (widow of John H) married William Hannagan/Hanagan in 1986 Dover, that is why I commented  on the Dover connection and then her death in 2002 Dover

Don't know as yet about a daughter, Forsyth MMN Phipps as yet, only found David T born Dover 1948

Thank you so much for your research. I have a feeling this may be the right man. Bit of a shot in the dark, but Clara J - could the J be Joan? Just a thought as many of my family go by middle names.

Edit: So sorry, I missed your earlier comment about Joan being in the name! Apologies.
