Hi
Through help from another Roots Chat forum I have found
My great uncle Sydney Whitford born 1885 Cornwall was living in iron Mountain Michigan 1913 as he married a Louise Gilbert , I think she was from Northampton, I have him on the American census, along with his children, I wondered if any of his descendants are searching for their ancestors.I would love to hear from them.

At the bottom of each RootsChat page in the brown section under Your Tools - is a section Surname Interests - perhaps it would be a good idea to post your Whitford your surname of interest in  that section.  RootscChat is a forum for tracing ancestors not living people but we can try and come forward as far as we can.

1930 census shows the family in Michigan - Iron Mountain, Dickinson, Michigan

Sidney Whitford   40 Louisa Whitford   37
Owen Whitford   14 Frank Whitford   13
Herbert Whitford   1
