I am hoping this sounds familiar to someone out there. I am doing research on the Ford side of my family. My ggg grandfather was William Ford he married Elizabeth Linehan. In the 1860 census there is a Cornelius Ford living in the same house hold with him. I am assuming it is a brother or at least a relative of some sort. Both William and Cornelius are listed as being born in Ireland. I would like to see if there is a connection between them and were in Ireland they came from, other siblings, etc.
This is the info I have found on Cornelius.
The 1860 census has them listed like this
1860 Lucas, Toledo 4th Ward June 28th 1860
Ford, Cornelius age 27?? m Ireland Drayman
William 28 m “ Laborer
Elizabeth 30 f Ohio
Daniel 3 m “
Alice 2 f “
Catherine 1/12 f “
Then in the 1870 census Cornelius is gone and just Elizabeth is listed with two children.
1870 Lucas Toledo 4th-Ward July 9th 1870
Ford Elizabeth 35 f w Keeping House Ireland
“ Dan 6 m w OH
“ Mary 9/12 Aug f w “
Then by 1880 Elizabeth had been remarried and widowed to a to ???Moran.
1880 Census Toledo, Lucas Co., OH
Eliza Moran self w female W 38 Ire K-House IRE IRE
Danl Ford son s male w 15 OH W in Hotel IRE IRE
Mary Jane Ford dau s female w 10 OH at school IRE IRE
J. Francis Moran son s male w 5 OH IRE IRE
Jane Haley sister s female w 28 IRE Seamstress IRE IRE
Then by the 1900 census Elizabeth and just her daughter are living together. I can't find either one after The 1900 census.
I found Cornelius and Elizabeth's marriage...
m. January 21, 1861, Lucas Co., OH
*Elizabeth Healey/Haley/Cornelius Ford
I did not find the one yet for Elizabeth's second marriage to ????Moran.
***Possible notes for Cornelius
I found this info on a Cory Ford. This person would be of the right age to be Cornelius. Would Cory be a nick name for Cornelius?? If I read the info right for 182nd it enlisted in Toledo area. There also was a Cory Ford in the 179th which is around the Camp Chase area.
182nd Co. B, E Cpl. OVI
Sept 9, 1864
Enlisted as Cpl. Age 37 – Oct 8 1864 Co. E.
Mustered out July 7 1865 Nashville, TN
Co. E, B 182nd OH
1881 March 9 – H17.348244.58H
**Note for Elizabeth... she show a sister in 1880 census.
Jane Haley sister/28 years/ seamstress/Ireland(1880 census)
