FORDóGeorge B. Ford was born July 3, 1843, in Mississippi; departed this life at the home of one of his daughters near Trickham, Texas, September 24, 1911. A good man has gone from us, but not forgotten; his children know where to find him. Brother Ford enlisted in the Sixteenth Mississippi Regiment in 1861 and went through the war, serving under Jackson and Lee, winning a cross of honor. He was a graduate of Dollbearsí College. He was married to Miss Mattie C. Broom, April 9, 1868. To them were born eight children. One son and five daughters survive him. Sister Ford preceded him to heaven just a little over one year. Brother Ford and family moved to Texas in 1886 and settled near Trickham in Coleman County. He was converted and joined the M. E. Church, South, in 1887, at a meeting conducted by Bro. J. W. Bowden. He loved the Church and his house was the preacherís home. He served as steward and Sunday School superintendent, always doing his work well, and left the impress of a godly life with his children. They are all on the way and expect one day to meet papa and mamma, when they will part no more. His children are all married and have families of their own, except Miss Pearl. She so tenderly and lovingly waited on him in his last days. May heavenís blessings be on her and all the rest of the children and grandchildren, is the prayer of one that loves them. A friend,    J.G. REAGOR
