Steve, In any of your searches, did you ever find where Thomas and Sally Fordham had a son named Theodore? In the 1850 census, he lives next door to Thomas and Sally and it would explain then, why I keep finding two Theodores but with different wives and children. I've almost exhausted the second wife idea, because none of the children in Hermon show up later in Michigan. Thomas and Sally would be the right age for being parents to this Theodore.

Theodore age 27, laborer
Fidelia age 24
Ellery A. age 2

Theodore T. Fordham, son of Jesse and Lydia, had a wife, Elizabeth Babbitt who went by Betsey and is buried in Kent City, Kent County, MI. He moved north and is buried in Alanson, Emmett Co. MI and his marker notes who he was married to and where she's buried. Children for him with Betsey were Sidney, Watson and Nellie. This would explain a slight age difference in the two Theodores.

Do you or anyone have anything that would show Thomas as father to a Theodore?
