I won’t even try to figure out how we’re related, but I’m a GGGGG Grandson of William Telford/Tilford, brother of James, Robert, David and Alexander. These are the Telford/Tilfords who were in Rockbridge Co. VA, moved to Scott Co. KY and then split off from one another. I was interested in your inquiry and Gary Van Zandt’s reply to it. First of all, I checked the Indiana State Library’s Index of Indiana Marriages through 1850 and didn’t find a marriage between Richard West and Elizabeth Tilford. There was an Elizabeth Tilford who married John Smock in Jefferson County, IN, in 1821.
Where did Elizabeth die and when? You say she married Richard West “of” Indiana – do you know either where they were married or where they lived?
This is all intriguing to me, because Gary Van Zandt thinks she might have been a daughter ofWilliam. I have a separate set of questions for him. You might take a look at his posting in a couple of days to see what develops.
Best of luck in your search – of course, by now, you may already have the answers you wanted.
