Ford12-1-3--1--

Ford, son of William (I) and Magdalen, now forty-five, with wife since 1795, Catherine Zimmerman, and their family of eight. At this point they are living on Blackeys Branch, Ford having sold his part of the Hewins Creek homeplace in 1803 to John Burch. One of the sons 10-16 must be William who would marry Fanny Banks in 1815. According to another researcher, other children were Reubin and Nancy.

Reubin, son of William (I), now in his 50s, wife's name not known though other researchers have suggested she was Polly Davis. The youngest children could belong to an older son with wife shown in the 16-26 group in both sexes, possibly Reubin Jr. or Daniel.

John---1-4-1---

John, son of William (I) and Magdalen, now about 35, married Elizabeth Duncan about 1804 (no marriage bond in N.C.). She was born 1791 and in her early teens when married. They wasted no time; four daughters (the first of 15 children) came very quickly. Judith married John Burch in 1804 and is now elsewhere; Magdalen may have died before 1810, but also need to check the John Burch household. John is still on Hewins Creek, but he and Elizabeth sold the land inherited from William (I) in 1817, and he is surely the John in Giles County, Va. in the 1820 census with ten children, four of them daughters over 10 but under 16. Link to The Bible record of John and Elizabeth Duncan Southern
