Re: Looking for Maiden name for Sally R. Fordham NY

In Reply to: Looking for Maiden name for Sally R. Fordham NY by Steve Merritt of 427

I took a photo of the tombstone of Sally Fordham, wife of Thomas. She's buried in Marshville Cemetery, outside of Hermon, NY. If Thomas's father was John, then your information of John's wife being Elizabeth, then confirms my "theory" that John's wife Lydia Childs was his second wife.

I was given information from another Fordham researcher that indicated a census in Plattsburgh showed the children of John and Lydia and three other, unnamed children. This also confirms that my John (I descend from Jesse) is the son of Captain Ephraim Fordham.

Please e-mail me at I can send you a picture of Sally's stone and see if somewhere around here I have her maiden name information.

Where did you get this page from the family bible? I'd like to have a copy of it, if it's available.
