Sorry to be so late responding---have health issues due to a foot disability and get easily side-tracked when health proplems come up.I am trying to catch up on geneal. correspondance.
Anyway, Julia Acord Landrum was my great grandmother on my mother's maternal side.I have that she was b. abt. 1817 in VA and that she died 21 Apr, 1862 in Jackson Co., OH giving birth to twins.A distant cousin said that the twins were buried with her in the same casket.They are buried in Jackson Co.'s Landrum Cemetery.
Julia's husband, my gt gfa, was Elza/Elzie Landrum, (b. 1802, VA-d. 19 Jan, 1875, also in Jackson Co., OH). Julia and Elza were married 8 Aug 1841 in Pike Co., OH. They had 7 children that I know of (chronologically):Emily, Monticue/Montigue, Elza, Lewis, George, Lucy Ann and John F..
My line from Jullia and then Lucy Ann is:Lulu May Tilley Baker, Lucy P. Baker Dye and me, Lois Dye Trampe.
I have wondered if Julia Acord may be related to the Muskingham Co. Acords and/or Lydia Acord.A Lydia Acord was the first wife of Smith Landrum (b. 1820, Greenbriar Co., VA), a first cousin to Elza Landrum b. 1802.Smith, following Lydia's death, married Cindarilla Phillips.
Elsa's parents were Nancy Tapp and Mark Landrum who were from Culpeper Co., VA.Smith's parents were Mary Fetter and Augustine Landrum. Smithis a very common first name in our Landrum line
Does any of this info help connect Muskingham Co. Acords with my line?
