Base: PRESENTED BY MCGALLIARD & HUSKE / JULY 4, 1887
This record indicates that David Schenck had Arthur Forbis' body moved from his original burial place in Alamance County to the Guilford Battleground site. While Schenck and the Battleground Company did have several bodies relocated from their original resting places to the battleground park, it is unclear the source of this information about Forbis. NCpedia is researching this question and will add an update as needed.
