Morford Family Genealogy Forum
Searching for information on Elizabeth Morford, daughter of Daniel Morford, who married Thomas Selvage in Mason County, Kentucky, in 1796. What happened to this couple and were there children?
We wish to determine whether John Selvage (born circa 1800) and his brother Miles Selvage (born 1806) are their sons. John is first recorded in the 1820 census in Ripley, Brown County, Ohio, which is directly across the Ohio River from Mason County. The unnamed male in the household is probably Miles. John later moved to Clermont County, Ohio. Members of the Morford family also moved to Brown and Clermont Counties, Ohio. One of them was Miles/Myles Morford, brother to Elizabeth. There is thus the suspicion that Miles Selvage could have been named after his uncle.
Has anyone ever seen any evidence that would link John or Miles Selvage to the Morford family?
