Ford and White Family Papers Collected by Ella Almira White Ford

The families of Thomas White and Andrew Ford resided in Massachusetts in the mid-1600s. Their descendants migrated to Cleveland, Ohio, where Ella White (1883-1952) married Horatio Ford (1881-1952) in 1908. The collection consists primarily of genealogical data on the Horatio Ford family and the Thomas White family. Includes diaries, newspaper clippings, correspondence, certificates, receipts, forms, and miscellaneous writings by Horatio C. Ford. The diaries (1845-1848) contain references to temperance, abolitionists, the Mexican-American War, and the Liberty Party.
