Ford Family
Hi Emily,

Nice to hear from you. The only source I have for Mary Grant Ford's middle name comes from Henry Wheeler's "Decendants of William Ford, Timothy W. Ford, Garrard County, Benjamin Bowles Ford, Scott County" which I found at the following website:

You're right that there are 2 Reuben Fords at Rock Creek so I just added a page for the father - don't know why I didn't do that before when I posted the others. Probably the headstone picture for Reuben really should be for the father not the son. Bruce Guthrie took those photos for me last winter, and he said that he photographed all the stones in that plot so apparently there aren't individual markers for Reuben Jr. & Elsie.

My connection comes through Reuben Jr's wife Elsie Collier. I have some information on her if you're interested and would be interested in anything you might have about her. Do you know anything about Reuben's 2nd wife Rebecca? The only mention I've found of her is in Reuben's obit (Washington Post 25 Feb 1964).

All the best,

Edward S. Willis
Did you ever receive a response from aphillcsa concerning Edward S. Willis? The reference info is from "Officers In Gray" by R.E.L. Krick.
