Johnson/Daugherty Families
Posted by: Jennifer Gibson Date: February 13, 2001 at 11:52:12

Looking for information on Chester Johnson m. Meta/Mada Daugherty. They had four children. Albert, Chester Lee, Betha, and Henry Ford.

Chester Johnson went to prison for murder sometime around 1929-30. And later released for saving the lives of several inmates in a prison fire. The children were sent to KY State Children's Home. All of the children except Chester Lee changed their names to their foster families.

My Grandfather was Henry Ford, the youngest, b. 26 Dec 1927 Owensboro, Daviess Co., KY
d. 27 Feb 1995. On his birth certificate, the age of his father-Chester Johnson was 30 years old and the of his mother-Meta Daugherty was 21 years old.

Does any of this information sound familiar to anyone?

TIA for any help with my family mystery!
