Census Sunday - Clyde William Ford

Today's census is of a collateral line; Clyde William FORD, who is a first cousin once removed. His mother was Gabrilla Almeda HUTSON, 1881-1960, and father was George William FORD, 1878-1929 (half-brother to my grandfather, Arthur Elisha Ford).


In order to see it better, I am including snippets of the page.
