Sorry, I'm here only on Wednesdays.
Archibald Ford died in Surry Co., NC n 1814, so he was not alive when William of Maryland wrote his will in 1818. Neither he nor Elizabeth are in the 1820 Census. Their son William md. in Surry Co., NC March 28, 1813 Rebekah Williams and moved to Monroe Co., VA before the 1820 Census. John Ford @ 45+ and William @ 26-45 Category (born 1792) were neightbors there(Monroe County Census, page 690) I descend from both.
I do not believe that John was the son of William (will probate 1818 in MD) John died 8 May 1833 (Family Bible). His nuncupative will, dated 12 Jan 1833 was recorded in Monroe Co., VA May Court 1833. His will stated: "...Benjamin Ford should have his claim to his Interest in a claim due him from his Father's Estate also His Claim as to his Military land claim..." A will probate in 1818 would have been settled long before 1833.
John had a Revolutionary Pension (S39532) applied for in Monroe Co., VA on 18 March 1824. He entered service 03 Aug 1776 from Montgomery Co., MD.
