I am a descendant of Hezekiah F(ranklin?) Foree (born in Kentucky June 1820, died March 11, 1867; Riverview Cemetery, LaGrange, Lewis, Missouri) and Clara Kyle. I came across this today after several years of searching for the ancestors of Hezekiah F Foree. This led me to the profile on Hezekiah L Foree who appears to be his Father possibly. I thought I would share my find immediately and see if anyone else out there has any further documentation or insight they would be willing to share. Thank You. Kevin Taylor
