Note: For some strange reason the 1920 Census is listing Grace Fort, the 14 year old niece, as the spouse of Pettus Fort. I believe this is an error.

The mother of Pettus and Elliot Fort (Ford) is Julia Watkins (Wakins) Fort of Dallas County, Alabama. Julia was born in March 1859 in Georgia. Her children include William (Willie), Elliot, Pettus, Indie (Judie?), Pinkie, Daisy and Charlie. 

Wilbur Ford resided also in Birmingham, Alabama and Oakland, CA.
