In Reply to: Edgar Fordham Born 12 Jan 1898 Eastman Dodge GA by Lance Fordham of 428

According to Lanell Dominy Claxton's book, Our Kin, Vol. III, his parents are Andrew Jackson Fordham and Cordelia Tallulah Bailey. Here is his obit:
Dodge County Newspaper Clippings, Vol. V, page 2619, December 26, 1935:
Mr. Andrew Jackson Fordham, a prominent citizen of Gresston, died Monday evening, December 16, following a stroke of paralysis he suffered about 10 o'clock that morning while visiting a neighbor, Mr. Allen.

Mr. Fordham was 70 years old and had been a resident of Dodge County many years. His wife died September 28, 1934. He is survived by the following children: Mrs. W. M. Purser, Chauncey; Mrs. Pearl Wynne, Misses Bessie and Vera Fordham, Edgar and J. D. Fordham, Eastman.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Josh Chance at Mr. Horeb Church December 18. The following nephews served as pallbearers: I. C., C. D., Morgan, Culver, Edison, and Ralph Fordham. Interment was in Bowers Cemetery.

Here is her obit:
Dodge County Newspaper Clippings, Vol. V, page 2548, October 4, 1934:
Mrs. Cordelia Bailey Fordham, prominent and well beloved Gresston resident, died at the family home Friday evening, after a short illness of paralysis, with which she was striken on the previous Sunday.

She was born in Wilkinson County April 4, 1862, the daughter of the late W. H. H. Bailey and Mrs. Nancy Lord Bailey, being 72 years old at the time of her death. She moved with her family to Dodge County about 37 years ago.

Mrs. Fordham is survived by her husband, Mr. A. J. Fordham, and the following children: Mrs. W. M. Purser, Chauncey; Mrs. W. O. Wynne, Eastman; Misses Bessie and Vera Fordham, Gresston; also 18 grandchildren and several brothers and sisters.

Funeral services were conducted at Mt. Horeb Church Sunday afternoon by her pastor, Rev. Josh Chance, who was assisted by Rev. J. F. Dykes, Rev. John M. Giddens and Rev. R. G. P. McKinnon. Hymns were sung by J. W. Dunn, L. M. Sparks, H. H. Peacock and Ed Blankenship. The following nephews served as pallbearers: Alvah, Guy, and Leonard Bailey, Cecil Montford, Comer, Rodolph, Culver, and Clarence Fordham. Interment was in Bowers Cemetery.

I think they left out some names in this obit.

If you don't have the Fordham names further than Andrew Jackson Fordham, I can give you those as well. Just let me know what you need.
