  1. Leslie Wade Foreman Sr.

    I am Leslie Wade Foreman Sr. My Paternal Grandparents were Jessie Emmett Foreman Sr , and Pauline Vanilla Foreman.her maiden name was Wilkerson. I got to know them, when I lived with my Dad in Foreman Arkansas during the early 1960s. Grandpa Jessie died in March 1965, when I was 5 years old, and my mom and my two brothers moved to Tampa, Foreman the following June of 1965, where I grew up in the home of my Maternal Grandparents, Leslie Lambert Cook, and Belle Virginia Cook, whose maiden name was Morton. Unfortunately, by the time I was born, my Great Grandparents on both sides of my family tree were dead. The only thing I know of them is their names, and on the paternal side of the family tree Grandpa Foreman’s parents, and Grandparents, but since I grew up mainly in Florida with my mom and her parents, I never got to know much about them. My Paternal Great-Grandparents were Walter Riley Foreman, and Mary Emma Foreman whose maiden name was Brashier. My Paternal Great-Great-Grandparents were Franklin Bowden Foreman and Judith Caroline Foreman, whose maiden name was Pruitt. I really would love to get to know my family history much better than I do. Is there anyone in the Foreman family who can help me to get to know my Ancestors better????

    Greetings Foremans, I am the great grandson of Abraham Foreman who lived in the Philadelphia area around the turn of the 1900s. My grandfather was Harold Foreman a trainman for the Pennsylvania Railroad. My aunts and uncles have all passed and I have no other resources to help. Does anyone of the Foremans have any info they can help me with? It be greatly appreciated.
