Ancestor: My paternal 3rd-great-grandfather (John Ford)
Facts: I’ve discussed John Ford before, a very interesting person. Since posting about him prior, I’ve received his CMSR (Compiled Military Service Record) and pension records from NARA. Those were very enlightening. I learned about an injury he incurred while in Cartersville, Georgia, in 1864 where a mule kicked him in the thigh/groin, which incapacitated him for basically the rest of his life. One of the deponents to his pension case was Nathan Hinkle, a Revolutionary War patriot, who also lived in Sullivan County, Indiana.
