General Notes: Wife -
================================================================================

Sallie married Benjamin Ford on 1 May 1871, Benton County, Arkansas, Marriage
Book A, page 257. By the 1900 census, Benjamin is married to Susan J. The
record says they have been married since age 31 (17yrs) and she has had 5
children with 4 still living. In 1910, he is married to Jane S and has been
married 26 years, again 5 children, 4 living. I believe Susan J and Jane S are
the same person and that Sarah died before 1900 and her children are probably
Elizabeth, Nancy Jane, Eldora and Fannie M. There is then a gap in the
children's ages and Mary is born in 1884, 26 years before the 1910 Census that
says Benjamin and Jane were married 26 years.
