Tolberd's of Sangamon, Macon, Christian & Logan & WayneCounties of Illinois
Ambrose & Rena Davis Tolberd were married in Macon County in 1879 & appear on the Sangamon County 1880 census. Two sons, Howard Allen and Virgil.
From census account, Ambrose was born in Virginia about 1856. Is he related to John Tolberd and Allie Cock/Cox?
John & Allie were married ca. 1834 in Grayson/Carroll Virginia and by 1850 census were in Montgomery County Virginia.By 1866 John Tolberd was living in Niantic Twp., Macon County (appears on a tax assessment list) and in 1879 he married 2nd time to Malinda Helm and both are buried in the Long Point Cemetery in Niantic.John & Allie had sons Allen who md a Mary Ophelia Whiteside (2nd wife) and this family lived Fairfield, Wayne, Illinois. Another son, Aris md Eliza Simpson and this family lived in Logan Co, Illinois, Cerro Gordo Co., Iowa and both died in Minneapolis.My line of interest is Arris' and his son, Elmer.Elmer md more than several marriages, and subsequent wives may not know of the "shotgun" marriage to #1 and because of the unique status of this quicky marriage and quicky divorce..this family line uses the "T" ending.I think all these county Tolberd's are related and I am interested in learning more of Howard Allen Tolberd and Ambrose's family line and if there is a tie in to John & Allie Cock Tolberd.
