Susan Ford, Tolbert, Belt is my grandmother. Yesterday, I found documentation about her death and family background. She listed Annie Maples as her mother and Liga Ford as her father. I assume that Liga is a misspelling for Elijah. So, I am struggling to find any documentation for that marriage. However, I found a 1900 Census for Monroe, Hardin Co. Illinois that documented a 4 yr marriage between George Vantassel and Ann Maples. Stepchildren are listed as, Matilda and Susan Ford.
Perhaps there are more Elijah Fords at the same time or Liga is a name. Can anyone clarify this situation for me? Thank you. Juanita
