I don't hava a Delila Debord/Deboard. What info do you have that her maiden name was Debord?

The 1870 Lee Co VA census does have a William Deboard age 44 born Ashe Co NC and presumed wife Delila C. age 43 born Ashe Co NC. I wish all the census records would have listed the county of birth as this one does. I believe this Wm was son of Benjamin Debord and Polly Stitt from Ashe Co NC near the Grayson VA border. This was probably Wm's 2nd or more likely third marriage (1850 Ashe census shows Rutha, 1860 Ashe shows Malinda) The 1880 census for Grayson Va has Lilah B. Deboard age 45 divorced listed as a separte family but in the same household with William H. Mink and two of her sons or stepsons Robert and James Deboard. The next door Perkins family has the rest of the Deboard children listed as boarders. Wm later marr Fannie Campbell in 1882 Smyth VA. This has been a confusing family to figure out; would love to share info if any of this sounds like it could be the Delila Baker you're looking for.
