Pvt George F. Ford
Birth: Feb. 18, 1843

Private George F. Ford served with Co. A 13th Mass. Vol. Inf. During the Civil War of 1861-65. After the War he moved to Nevada in the 1870s and became a Merchant and ran a small General store in Carson City until his health failed him around 1895 and then he was looked after by his friends and family until his death on March 30th 1898 at age 55 (Cause of death Heart Attack). The US Government Pension Dept. was paying him a pension of $19 a month at the time of his death.
He was a member of the Gen. Custer Post No. 5 Grand Army Of The Rebublic and he was laid to rest in the Family Plot near the GAR Section of the Lone Mountain Cemetery in Carson City Nevada. His stone used to have an angel holding a lamp on top of it but it was stolen by vandals some years before. The photo of Private George F. Ford was found in a family album sold to a local antique dealer in Carson City, Nevada, and is now part of my collection. All other information was obtained from the National and State Archives.
