Elisha Morris Ford, a former Denton resident, died at 11:30
p.m. Thursday in
his home in Ft. Worth. He was 73. Funeral services will be held
at 10 a.m.
Saturday in Jack Schmitz & Son Funeral Chapel in Sadler. A member
Highland Baptist Church, he was a retired machinest. He was born
Knoxville, Tenn, May 27, 1890. Survivors include his widow, the
Bessie Tharp; a sister, Mrs. Mae Haddock of Houston; two half-brothers,
Bowling and C.E. Bowling of Denton and a half-sister, Mrs. Zela
This was my grandmother, Mae Ford's brother. I surely wish I could
obit for his wife, Bessie Tharp Ford, who died 14 March 1988 and
buried at Sadler. Bessie and her parents lived in Sadler, Grayson
Co. for many
years, but I can't find a record of their deaths. We "believe" them
Richard and Mary E. Tharp. Mary may have been a Payne before they
Some of them are buried at Sadler also.
