I think that we have a connection, although I found Jeptha's wife listed as "Maney" in the death record of their daughter, Lorena.Her name was listed as "Manah" (or something similar) in the 1850 Carter County, KY census.
My greatgrandmother was Anna (Joanna) Debord.She was born in Lawrence County, KY in February 1832.Her parents were Jeptha and Maney (Manah?) Debord.Both parents were born in North Carolina and lived in Ashe County, NC in 1830.I think that Jeptha's father was Isaac Deboard, who lived in Wilkes County, NC in 1820.
Other children of Jeptha and Maney include:John (1830-), Lorena (1834-1852), Ira (1836-), Isaac (1838-), Frances (1839-), Solomon (1842-), Amos (1845-), and Jeptha (1850-).
Anna married James B. Salter, born in PA in about 1827.They lived in Lawrence County, KY.Their children included Harvey B. Salter (1854-1929), my grandfather Thomas Van Salter (1855-1938), Susan (1859-bef. 1870), and George (1869-).
