Forbes family - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1331 words)
Later, some of the Forbes family sold their China trading interests to the Russell and Company, a shipping empire which was headed by Robert Bennett Forbes, and was later associated with Yale's development and endowment.
The earliest record we have of the Forbes family is that of the marriage of Solvathius Forbes to Maravilla, daughter of King Gregory the Great, in 870 AD.
However, Bertie Forbes, born in New Deer, Scotland, is a descendant of the Forbes clan in Scotland.
John Murray Forbes (1932 words)
Forbes served as the President of the Michigan Central Railroad from 1846 to 1855.
Forbes was well-informed of the value of this region as, five years earlier, Louis Agassiz of Harvard College, Forbes's friend from the Boston Saturday Club, had led an expedition through the area noting the best timber and mining lands.
Forbes later said, "That speech changed my whole feeling with regard to it, though the bigotry and pigheadedness of the abolitionists prevented me acting with them." He supplied money and weapons to New Englanders sent to fight slavery in Kansas and in 1859 entertained John Brown.
