Julia Watkins married Monk Fort, also of Harrells Crossroads, in 1874. The family alternately is recorded as using the last name “FORD”. Monk Fort died somewhere between 1895-1900.
Monk and Julia are recorded as having 9 children: William b. July 1877, Elijah (Elliot) b. July 1879, Pettus (James Pettus) b. July 1884, India (Judie?) b. Jan 1888, Pinkie b. Jan 1890, Daisie b. Sept 1893 and Charlie b. Jan 1894. There is also a Mary.
