151 Tucker Lucas Ford was born in Scotia, Alabama on May 2nd, 1832 to Emmanuel and Tennessee Ford. He was a member of the B51 Regiment (the buffalo soldier). We know very little about his parents Emmanuel and Tennessee Ford. It is likely that he was born into slavery as he was born before Slavery ended. He married Clarinda Ashley Ford in 1867 in Mt. Meigs, Alabama at their home. After Clarinda's death he married Catherine Pearce Ford in October of 1893. To this union no children were born. A Rev. Parker in Montgomery Alabama Married Tucker and Catherine Ford.

We have not been able to determine the time of death of Tucker Lucas Ford. He had however signed an official government document on May 16, 1915, so we can say that he lived to be eighty-three (83) years old or older. On the same document he stated that he had 78 grandchildren at that time.
Little is known about Clarinda Ashley Ford. According to official historical records, she was first married to Stephen Spears and died on November 30, 1887.

156 We don't know very much about Hezekiah and his wife Elsie Ann. They are listed on the Freedman's Register for Mississii marriages. They lived in and near areas that was dominated by the slave trade. An excerpt from an article below gives some historical background about the area where they lived and farmed.

"Between 1820 and 1861 more than 60 percent of the Uer South's enslaved population was "sold South" in this manner. Mississii's enslaved population increased by more than 225 percent. The destination of the enslaved people listed in the Record Book were the slave markets at Natchez. The Natchez Trace led directly to one of the two largest and busiest slave markets in the entire Deep South. It was called Forks of the Road and was located at the intersection of Washington Road (now St. Catherine Street) and Liberty Road about a mile east of downtown Natchez. Slaves were also sold at the Adams County Courthouse itself, at Natchez Under-the-Hill and in various auction houses around town. But its almost certain it was at Forks of the Road slave market where the enslaved men, women and children mentioned in the Record Book were brought.
