Birth: Oct. 5, 1830, England
Death: Oct. 28, 1868

Charles J. Ford was born October 5, 1830, in Uley, Gloucestershire, England. His parents moved to this country and settled in Middlebury, Vt., when he was quite young. He was fitted for college at the Middlebury high school, and entered the University in 1849, and remained two years. After leaving the University he studied pharmacy in Troy, N.Y., and later entered a Dental college in Philadelphia, Penn., where he received the degree of D.D.S. In 1856 he went to Dubuque, Iowa, and practiced dentistry.
At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted as a private in the Sixth Iowa cavalry, but was soon assigned duty as assistant surgeon with the rank of captain.
He served in an expedition under General Sully against the hostile Indians in the Northwest, and had charge of a hospital at Fort Rice and Fort Randall. He took part in the following engagements: White Stone Hills, September 3, '63; Tash-Ku-o Kutz, July 28, 29, 1864; and Bad Water Lands, August 7, '64. He was honorably discharged October 16, 1865. After the war he opened an office as dental surgeon in St. Louis, Mo., where he lived until his death. He died unmarried, October 28, 1868. (from Norwich University: Her History, Her Graduates, Her Roll of Honor, compiled by William A. Ellis; pub. by Rumford Press, Concord, NH, 1898)
