I have that census and the 1900 census.Lilla and George married in Baldwin County, GA in January, 1878.Lilla died in 1901, at age 45. She had 11 children and only 4 lived.
I also have the marriage license and newspaper clipping from their marriage.The marriage license states Miss Lilla Foard, the newspaper clipping states Mrs. Lilla Foard.Was she married before?There is no other marriage record for a Foard/Ford marrying an Elizabeth or Lilla......
In 1900 she states she was born in Maine.
I have searched for 9 years now for her parents.Hoping the Abraham Foard angle would pan out, for they were the only Foard gang in Baldwin County.
Lilla's daughter, my great-grandmother, Lilla (Jr) b. 1888, stated that Lilla (Srs.) mother died when she sas young and she was nursed by a black woman.
