Notes for ARTHUR FORD:
The Ford Family bible give's Arthur's birth date as 12 October 1884.
The civil register lists an Arthur Ford born in Derby in the last quarter of 1884.
His marriage certificate dated 14 December 1922 gives his age as 38, his birthplace as Derby.
This is consistent with the above two.
His place of residence is given as Deroche, which is in the Fraser Valley, his occupation as farmer, religion Spiritualist Church.
According to his daughter, Marjorie Warren (Nee Ford), Arthur Ford and Nellie Cassell lived together in Deroche for a matter of months and he had returned to the U.S. before she was born.
I have requested From the SSDI records for the only two Arthur Fords who would have been 38 at the time of the marriage, but neither of their birthdates are 84/10/12.
