I am trying to find information on Daniel A. Ford and his wife Sarah J ?. Family folklore states Daniel was a seaman (possibly a captain) and that he deserted his wife and daughter, Rose May Ford, who was born in Bridgewater, Plymouth Co., MA July 27, 1875. Rose was raised by her mother and aunt, and she then married Harry/Henry William Hawkins in Brockton, Plymouth Co., MA sometime around 1901. Most of Harry/Henry and Rose's children were born in Ohio, but they apparently moved to Macon Twp., Lenawee Co., MI between 1912-1915. I found Rose as a widow in 1920 Macon Twp., so apparently her husband died in Michigan. She never remarried and raised a large flock of children by herself. Do any of these names sound familiar?
