Do you have anyone in your family with the proverbial "Forbes Nose"?

The Legendary Forbes Nose

When asked if there was any trait that distinguishes the Forbes family over the many generations, Forbes Clan historian, Alex Forbes, answered, "Of course, the legendary Forbes nose?" In fact, if you review the portraits of notable Forbes in the People section of this website, and here, you'll see that it is true. But what was truly stunning to me was to look at a photograph of my father, Charles Campbell Forbes, and see that it is the same nose!! I'm no geneticist, but apparently these physical traits can last over 10 generations or more! I invite you to look over your family pictures and share with us any legendary Forbes noses you have in your family.
