Surnames: Ford, Bacon, Carson
Found James W Ford in the 1940 NJ Census, living with his daughter in Bridgeton, Cumberland Co, NJ. He was a widower by 1940. His daughter, Elizabeth, was married to a William E Carson and they had a son William E Jr, who was born about 1932.

Looking at the SSN death index: Elizabeth F Carson, was born 05/09/1905 and died 04/2/1988 in Ocean City, Cape May Co, NJ; William E Carson Sr, was born 01/15/1899 and died 02/15/1998 in Ocean City, Cape May Co, NJ. In the Atlantic Press obituary for William E Carson Sr, he has no survivors, his wife and son having pre-deceased him; William Carson is stated as being buried at Overlook Cemetery in Bridgeton, NJ. Not sure if William E Carson Jr was married and had a family or died as a child?

Did not find any information regarding James W Ford's or his wife, Elizabeth Bacon Ford's deaths, but looking at Overlook Cemetery in Bridgeton, NJ may be a start. The cemetery office's address I believe is: 2 Glenview Terrace, Bridgeton, NJ 08302.

James W Ford was born approximately 1864 in Smyrna, Delaware and would have died after 1940 sometime; a son of Owen J Ford and Mary Elizabeth Harten Ford. His wife, Elizabeth Bacon Ford, was born approximately 1870 near Salem, Salem Co, NJ and would have died in Bridgeton sometime between 1930 and 1940; she was a daughter of Smith Bacon and his wife Elizabeth Freas Bacon.

Any assistance that may be given regarding any additional data on this family would be greatly appreciated.
