My great great grandmother was Jane Catherine Hereford (1840 - 1925) b at Hillsboro IL. Jane Catherine Hereford married Frederick Augustus Tritle. Their daughter Jane Catherine Tritle married Eugene Jaccard Spencer at Prescott, AZ, and they resided at Webster Groves, St. Louis, Missouri. Jane Catherine Hereford was the daughter of Francis Hereford Jr. and Sarah Catherine Stuart Foote. Francis Hereford Jr. (1801 - 1851) was b at Mason County VA and died at Independence, Missouri; he was the son of Francis Hereford and Ann Catherine Harrison. Francis Hereford was the son of John Hereford of Fairfax County VA, d at Mason County VA (1758 - 1846) and Betsy Patterson. That's as far back as I have at present, but I know I can establish the connection to the Herefords in England, because my parents have visited there. The Herefords they met in England say that all the Herefords are from the same family.
