The Ford family of Artist Henry C Ford had a house in Santa Barbara with a 15 car garage. I have been to the house and family friends said he was related to Car Maker Henry Ford. We were neighbors and I have come across a artical we were related to Car Maker Henry Fords financer Lumberman William H Murphy.
The Murphys might have actualy been related to Henry Ford through his friends Thomas Edison and his wife Mina Miller. The split seems to be around the time of carmaker Henry Fords' activities in Germany around 1936. This would be the time of the German Olympics.
Has anyone ever heard of a connection of Car Maker Henry Ford and some car makers in Germany around 1936?
