Ford Family fonds (F 483)


Nathan Ford was an agent for Colonel Samuel Ogden, and resided in Ogdensburgh (previously Oswegatchie), New York. He later built a mill in the town in 1797, and maintained a correspondence with his brother, David Ford of Morristown, New Jersey.

Fonds consists of correspondence among various Ford family members, mostly between Nathan Ford of Ogdensburgh and David Ford of Morris Town and Albany. Letters refer to local events and politics, family news, business activities, European events (especially the progress of the Napoleonic wars), the War of 1812, the Fenian Raids, and other subjects.
