William Woosley SHELBY

He was 28 in 1850, single and living with his mother.

NEWSPAPERS: The Henderson Gleaner 9 March 2003
An imposing structure that has survived is the house at 424 S. Elm St., which was built in 1883-84 by Col. William W. Shelby. E. L. Starlings's "History of Henderson County" characterized the building as Shelby's "present magnificent residence" which was "certainly the handsomest in the city and much handsomer than very many metropolitan homes costing twice as much." The house is currently owned by Bobby and Jane Park. It's an interesting footnote to such a historic building that it was erected with one of the first building permits issued by the city of Henderson.
(I believe this W. W. Shelby in the article is probably a cousin to this W. W. Shelby.)

William M. FORD

NOTES: His tombstone reads Died age 28, "Whose benovelance caused the widow and orphan to smile and whose firmness caused his enemies to tremble. He was much appresst while living and much slandred since death." (His father James Ford composed this inscription for his son's grave. The purpose of the message was to still rumors about the dishonesty of the Ford Family.) He was one of the famous Ford's Ferry Gang founders.
