|Jerry C. Goldsmith||Henry C Lewis|
My brother Charles and I grew up with Henry (Hank) Lewis and my grandmother, Etta (Mama Lewis) in Globe AZ in the late 40s and early 50s. I remember as a young boy that Minnie visited us in Globe, but I did not know who she was.

Hi I think we have the same cemetery only listed under different names. The "Ford/Secoy Cemetery" is the title the Monroe County Historical Society in Paris Missouri call it. You can see it under cemetery lookup.
Some people have gone out and taken pictures of it and it has pictures of some of the headstones. Originally it was Peter Ford's land back in 1835 and they lived and died and were buried on it. More joined, but then newer cemeteries were built and they quit adding to the cemetery.
Maybe it could be combined under one name so it is not confusing. The Historical Society is putting it on their maps and listing it in their publications.
all the best,

I know that your Fords are descended from Pierre Faure, and so many of our Ford connections are suggestive of the same family but I can't find a connection! This is just grasping at straws, but my husband's g-g-grandfather John Ford was b. abt 1801 KY & married Delilah Tevis in Clark Co in 1822. They and Jared Pierce Ford & his wife Elizabeth (I think Betsy Campbell) went to Decatur Co Ind very soon after John & Delila's marriage, and started the first Methodist Church. Delila/Deliah was from Madison County KY, and Betsy Campbell m. Jarret/Jerad Ford there in 1816. There's more, but if none of that shows up in your records you wouldn't be interested - & I wouldn't be surprised. I will say that John & Delilah ended up in Morgan Co MO by 1850. Thanks for your reply....
He is buried with wife, Mary Wensley McCray, whose prior husband was T. M. Durham.
Clyde's Death Certificate lists Luther as his father and Maggie Green as his mother.

I think my husband's Fords are related to yours, but after years of trying to track down id of his g-g-g grandfather I'm still stymied! Have the book on Faure/Fore/Ford, & lots of questions! If you should have access to more documents than are included in the book, I would like to hear from you.
You may remove the photos of the Sehorns which I took, yours are much better.

Sorry, but I didn't see a stone for Elizabeth's husband. I'll check again the next time I'm in that area.
|Teri Forsyth||RE: Ford|
Yes, I come from Tirey and Elizabeth Ford

No, just got the name from the Austin City cem books and all it gave was the burial dates. Evergreen is the city cem for most of the people of color.
