I am looking for any info on James Ford-b.1864. On his marriage certificate he lists he was born in Calaveras County. His father-AJ Ford (born KY 1835)- was living in Cottonwood/Yolo County in 1860. I believe James mother was Native American, but from what tribe I am not sure. I can find no record of James in California other than listing it as his birthplace on US Census and Marriage Certificate. By 1870, James' father was still in California in Merced County working on as a ranch hand on a ranch owned by C.A. Bramlid. By 1880, A. J. had returned to Kentucky, where he was from, taking James Monroe Ford with him. Any help or tips would be appreciated.
