I know all about John Ford and have his pension papers. William Foard's estate probated in 1818 mentions the heirs of three deceased daughters. Why wouldn't he have mentioned children his son, especially eldest son? Your William Ford could have just as easily moved to Monroe, WV to be near his maternal Aunt Winifred (ATHEY) FORD. In the 1776 Maryland State Census John Ford is listed one page away from William and Susanna Ford in Prince George County with the other children named in the will accounted for. Where is Archibald? Why would an estate of a father that includes the children of his deceased daughters ignore a children of a decesed son? William Ford's estate was probated without a will so equally dividing among his 8 children would of necessity named William as a child of Archibald. That is the strongest evidence that Archibald IS NOT JOHN's brother.
