looking for parents of john ford tod
John ford Tod 1829-1914 m Ann Jackson
I have seen reference to his parents being thomas tod and Isabel Niven, however i have been contacted and told that thomas and isabella had one named john Nov 15 1829-Feb 25 1898 and that he married a Helen McLellan 1830-July 1 1894 and they had 2 children, this is at odds with what i have.
i have john ford tod having 12 children and of course the wives are different as well as the death date.
there seems to be only one census of John Ford Tod that is in 1881 whereas the other john is in the 1891 census..
so the only thing i can see is the variation in the spelling of his mothers first name , is this the same person with a ghost life or just 2 johns born same time same place same named parents
