Carlton and Rozella Ford, Edwin, Darrel, and Dema in 1915 or 1916 – Paul, Dallas, Glen, and Robert (not pictured) were born after 1916

A reunion for all living descendents of Carlton A. Ford (1887-1979) and Rozella Elizabeth Nebergall (Ford) was held on August 11, 2012 at Heritage Park, 1772 Reed Rd. in Lima, Ohio. The previous reunion was held in 2003.

Gilbert Ford provided an outstanding array of door prizes from his salvage business. Other door prizes were donated by Zuma Bouchard, Paula Painter, and Jacklyn Moore. Paul and Julia Ford provided the delicious pulled pork and beef sandwich meat along with hamburger buns.

A big thank you to all who came from near and far. Everyone had a wonderful time of food, fellowship, and fun!
