The William Ford that we thought was in the 23rd Pennsylvania Infantry we don't have any concrete dates for. I was told he died at Battle of Gettysburg.So I have come to the conclusion the 23rd Infantry William Ford is not him. We don't know when he was born or when he died for sure. We don't even have his wife's name. Census records for his son say that William Sr. was either born in Pennsylvania or Ohio and William Sr's ancestors were Pennsyvlania Dutch. So I am starting to think that the family was Mennonite or Amish not Quaker.So we are trying to find records like you say we should do.I keep looking for both William Fords in 1850 Census Records but can't find either one.
