The male Forrest line did indeed come to an end in 1943.

William was a captain in the Confederate Army, and was wounded at Ft. Donelson and a couple of other places.
William had a son, Nathan Bedford Forrest II (1872-1931).
Nathan II had a son, Nathan Bedford Forrest III (1905-1943). Nathan III became a brigadier general in the US Army Air Force. He was killed after flying on a raid in 1943. Eventually, his remains were removed to Arlington.
Here is a short bio and a picture of the general and his monument.
