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 IrelandDrayman 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.
Then by 1880 Elizabeth had been remarried and widowed to a to ???Moran.

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'ssecond 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.
