You're spot on! I also confirmed Charles T Fortney and Marcella Fortney as grandparents of Ronald L Fortney. Can we find their ancestors to understand where they came from...besides Fairfax, VA? I was told there is some German history...What can we find out?....I don't see that anyone is working on this question. Have I done this correctly?
