I am trying to do some research on my husbands family. I have found his Great Great Grandfather William Duncan Ford in the 1850 census in Franklin County, Mississippi with his wife Anna J (was Herrington, then married Olaham John Fallon on 22 DEC 1844, married William Duncan Ford on 31 October 1849 in Franklin Co Mississipi) and one child Euclid K. Ford. I have Euclid birth being 13 Mar 1849 in Mississippi (Is this Anna's child from first marraige? or was William married before?) I have Chleo H. Ford born 25 April 1852, but no information as to where. I have Absalom Bunyan Ford born 6 Jan 1857 in Natchez, Adams, Mississippi (what is of interest to me here is than Bunyan seems to be a family name in Anna Jane Herrington family and in researching Franklin County I have run across an Absalom Ford in the deeds in 1825, could this be William Duncan's father?) I have Frances Barnes Ford born 4 Nov 1858. Do you have any more Ford family information from Franklin County that would help me in my research? Linda Ford
