Are you ready to be totally confused? Here is my connection>
Robert Bishop and Elizabeth Lewis had these daughters named Rachel and Mary "Polly" Bishop.

Rachel married George Deavours, after her first husband John Watkins died. Their daughter Elizabeth Deavours married William Z. Ford. (not confusing yet)

Mary "Polly" Bishop married Manley Ford. He was the son of William Ford and Louisa Johnson. Manley and Polly's son was William Z. Ford who married Elizabeth Deavours. (You say WHAT?)Keeping it in the family right?

William Z. Ford and Elizabeth Deavours' son Isaac Manley Ford married Sara Ann Wofford, their son, James Perry Ford married Rebecca Jane Murphree, their son Caleb Milton Ford married Lula "Lou" Allen, their son, Grady Allen Ford married Geneva Payton, and they had me. Patsy Ford (Childs).

That makes George Deavours my ggggggrandfather if I have figured it correctly. and then his wife is my 5xgrandma and 6xgreat aunt, again if I figured it correctly. I got very confused trying to figure this one out!

Here is who I have for children of George and Rachel, Elizabeth, Abraham, Sarah "Sally", Isaac Bishop, Christopher Columbus, James and John. I have spouses, children for all except James and your John. I will be glad to share with you what I have, and would love any additions, corrections, etc. that you could offer
