From: April 17, 1969 Winn Parish Enterprise-News American George Ford Recalls: George Ford of Sikes is one of the area's best historian, especially as concerns the eastern half of Winn Parish. Recently in an interview he recalled some facts. Elisha Fhord, a single man, and John Rhoe, with his family, came to Catahoula Parish, Louisiana in 1788 from near Raleigh, North Carolina. They were among the very first settlers of Northeast Louisiana. Upon being naturalized they dropped the "h" from their names. In 1792 Elisha Ford married Mary Roe, daughter of John Roe. It is told that he had to either marry a Roe or a Choctaw Indian maiden. Children of Elisha and Mary Roe Ford were: Isaac, John, Tim, Riley, and two daughters, all of whom were born in Catahoula Parish. Riley Ford, born in 1803, was the grandfather of the narrator. His children were John Alexander 'Alex' Riley, Jr., and two daughters, one of whom married a Waggoner and the other a Poole. Riley Ford, Sr. died of tick fever. Jonathan Boles, the father of Tollie, Tom, Annie, Bell, Nancy, and Mary, when he was a single man in 1850 walked from Alabama to Louisiana carrying a cross-cut saw, said to have been the first saw in this part of Louisiana. John Pharo Sills, Sr., married Mary McCarty. Three children were born to this marriage. A baby died in infancy and is buried in what is known as the Ford Cemetery across Flat Creek. John Pharo Sills, Jr., and Cornelia Sills, the other two, lived to rear large families. The John P. Sills family together with the families of Wade McCarty and Fate McCarty moved to Rapides Parish on Red River. The Willis Lee family came to Winn Parish in 1819 from Virginia. One of the sisters of Willis married John Smith, the other sister married an Anderson. These Lee children were first cousins to the noted Robert E. Lee. The Lee and Anderson families moved to Nacogdoches County, Texas, carrying their slaves.
