In researching my FORD family, I have discovered that Maria Davitt was the sister of my John Ford. I know that she and John were born in Ireland, then moved with their family about 1844 to Liverpool, England, then moved to Erie, PA about 1857. My John Ford died in Wisconsin in 1883, but a military deposition from Maria indicates that she was living in Minneapolis. I think she may have been born in 1843 Ireland and married to MICHAEL DAVITT. I believe that she died in MN in 1912. I believe that Michael died in 1916 in Minnesota. Hope this can help someone.
Children Agnes and Ella and 4 others.
