Charles Forgie is a person whom I have yet to research. My grandmother Gertrude O'ROURKE Dowd had a sister named Anna O'Rourke. Anna was 18 years older than Gertrude. Anna was first married to Charles Forgie, It appears that her first husband, Charles, died at an early age. She next married Peter Zentner.

They had five children, Leo, William, Mary, Ellen and Rita. Peter also died at an early age. After Peters death (don't know when) Anna married James Clougherty. There were no children from that marriage.

Below is the tombstone for Anna's son Charles. He would be my first cousin once removed, and is buried near his mother Anna, also pictured below.

Charles Forgie 1998 1952

Anna O'Rourke and Peter Zentner

I think that Richard Davis was a grandson. Possibly the child of her daughter Mary Zentner Davis. Anna is buried with husband number two, but where is Charles Forgie and my theory is James Clougherty is buried with his first wife.
