Another proof of parentage
Posted: 09/14/2020 - 1:18 pm
I suspect, but have no proof, that the parents of my 2nd great-grandfather Jesse Ford (born ~1810 in Bourbon Co., KY; died 16 Feb 1885 in Lewis Co., MO) were John Ford (born 1763 in Henrico Co., VA; died 1840 in Grant Co., KY) and Elizabeth "O'Neal (born 1766 in Lincoln Co., KY; died 1845 in KY). In John Ford's Wiil, no children are named. Where can I go to try and find "proof" that John & Elizabeth are the correct parents of my 2nd great-grandfather Jesse Ford?
