Hi Sandra,

I have found a marriage between Elmer Warner Ford and Julia Lilian Luddington 13 July 1926 at Cook, Illinois. Age for Julia is right. As she was first married at age 20 (see your earlier post) I am thinking she married Alexander B Kaminski in 1923 and then Elmer in 1926.
Elmer died in 1935 and is buried at Lake Village Cemetery Indiana (findagrave.com). The questions are is this the right family and what happened to Julia post 1935?

Thought it may be interesting to show Emma Palmateer and Jenny Nilsson's mother's probate showing her children in USA. Most of the family had moved over:

Hi Sandra,

Just wanted to update you regarding Julia Liddington - you may recall you found her in the 1930 census as the wife of Elmer Ford. I have now found that after Elmer's death in 1935 she married Zaner Mahmet in 1937 and died in 1955 at Hammond Lake, Indiana. In turn her husband Zaner died in 1963.

I also found the death of Nellie May Bough (nee Watson) in Hammond on 13 Feb 1903.

Still more to find but at least the brick walls "are crumbling"
