(Carpenter's History
Eighth Regiment
Vermont Volunteers


Was a Leading Citizen of Kirby

Capt. George O. Ford, aged 74 years, died at his home in Kirby, May 8, after a short illness. He was a native of Lyndon and served three years in the Civil War in the Eighth Vermont regiment. He was once taken prisoner, twice wounded, and when discharged had been promoted to a captaincy in his regiment. In 1864 he married Sophronia Grout, a sister of the late Congressman W. W. Grout, and during General Grout's long public service Captain Ford was manager of his farm in Kirby and lived on it.

Captain Ford had held all the offices in Kirby. In 1888 he represented the town in the legislature and for several years had been the county road commissioner.
