Ford, Jesse Green

The following information is shared by Nancy Wallace:

His mother and father were Jesse and Nancy Ford. He had 4 sisters and 2 brothers.

He volunteered in Dover along with my grandpa, Eugene Wallace. (who didnt know my gradma Sallie Ford until he came back from the war) from there they were sent to Greenville, S.C. and over seas from there. They did stay together and my grandpa was in the same area when he was killed.

On the back of the YMCA card it reads: Jessie G. Ford was killed in action ? ? front in Belgium July 30th 1918 was shot by a german sniper some hund yards out in no mans land about 7 a.m. Cpt. W. B. Fizgerald was by his side and brought him to our trench was not one word spoke from him. st. Lt. J. Massie, co L 119th infantry

Inside the Bible it reads: co. L 119th infantry this was kept by a true friend for safe return. Cpt. Wm. Fitzgerald. A. E. F. France. ap074

His sister, Dassie Wallace,(husband Tollie) had written a letter to him, dated the day he was killed and it was returned.

He is buried at Jackson cemetary on Link Rd. His tombstone says he died on August 2nd. The note written indicates it was July 30th 1918.
