I am looking for any information concerning a William Ford living in the Prairie Point community in Cooke County, Texas around 1870.
He was a settler along with Green Sutton, John Lowe, Tab Edwards, Allen Penton, Joe McCracken and Jim Roberson.
This information is from the book "The First 100 Years in Cooke County," by A. Morton Smith in the Weatherford Public Library (Texas).
I am trying to connect him with my Ford line. He may have been the father of James Madison Ford (b:1851, Kentucky) who was married in Cooke County around 1883.
I think the Fords in this area at that time were working for the Railroad.
Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
