Re: Emily Ralston b.1840
Still looking for information on Emily RALSTON. She was born abt. 1840 KY. She may have had ties to families in either Hickam, McCracken, Caldwell or Graves Co, KY, as that is where her husband, Demarquis L. FORD, either lived or had relatives in at that time.
Demarquis L. FORD's parents, John FORD and Edna/Edny PETTY FORD, were living in Pope/Massac CO, IL on land that Demarquis bought in 1848-1850 when he and Emily RALSTON were married abt. 1860. Demarquis and Emily RALSTON FORD are listed in the 1870 Massac Co, IL Census with the following children: Charles W., Cordelia, Frances Caroline, Reuben Jesse, Mary E., Emiline, and Ambronettie? (sp?).
