I'm trying to find a lead to James H. Forbs/Forbes family that is listed on the 1870 and 1880 Galveston census. I am not able to figure out the wife's name. On the 1870 it is listed as GONERA b.TN 1846 and on the 1880 census it is DENIERA. On 1880 cenus, James is listed as CONFECTIONER(candymaker?)

there is listed dau: Ida born FL 1863, Ella born TX 1867 and Edward born TX 1872.

Trying to figure who James H. descends from or who his wife was. Their daughter Ella married T.E. Gonzales 12/28/87 in Galveston and trying to locate her on 1900 census. Dau Ida married Samuel Crawford in 1886 (I think)

Ella Forbes Gonzales married Frank Bostwick 16 Mar 1898. They lived in Philadelphia PA (Buck County).

Trying to figure who the Forbes are related to..

Any leads greatly appreciated..
