Barry, I took your advice and looked at the census.Julia was with her family (Robert Baird/Beard)on 1860 and 1870 census.A "Julia Beard" m. Emanuel Hufford in 1877.So I looked on the 1880 census:
Rush Creek, Fairfield Co., Ohio 1880 Emanuel Hufford 35 born in Ohio Wife - Mary E. Hufford 27 born in Ohio. Children:Joseph C. 10, Martin S. 8, Eli L. 6, Sadia B. 4 and Kate V. 1. Children all born in Ohio.
So I'm more confused than ever.Maybe there are two Emanuel Huffords.Maybe Julia died before 1880.Maybe the second Emanuel and Julia moved out of Ohio.There are all kinds of possibilities.I was hoping to connect her to the Ohio Huffords, you have done so much good research, purely selfish on my part.Thanks for your help.
