Corydon L. Ford notebook, 1853
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The Corydon L. Ford notebook (2011-33-0) contains genealogical information about the Ford/ Foord family. Dr. Corydon L. Ford began collecting the information in 1853. Along with the vast amounts of handwritten genealogy are some later newspaper clippings, as well as sketches of the the gravestones of William Foord and his wife Sarah dingley Foord at Marshfield, Massachusetts and Joseph Ford and his wife Lois Stetson Ford at Center Pembroke, Massachusetts. Included at the end of the notebook is information about Dr. Alvin Foord and Emily Carter Foord. This information looks to have been added by another individual at a later date.

The item is currently housed in 3A Box 27.
