Cecily is either the daughter of William Ford Sr (1684-1751) & Elizabeth "Liddy" Anne Ward (1706-1751) - OR- the daughter of Culverine Ford and Elizabeth Lea/Lee. To date this mystery has not been solved.

Known records indicate Cecily married James Adams Sr in 1751 at the St James Northam Parish Church in Henrico Co (now Goochland) VA.

Oh Cecily, my 5th Great-Grandmother, if only you could talk and tell me if William Ford Sr OR Culverine Ford was your true father! I need to prove that fact!
