J. Ford of Fenway Hall Hotel who will celebrate the anniversary tomorrow with a family dinner in the Empire Room of the hotel. As Mrs Ford told of their 65 years, all of them spent in Cleveland, Ford quietly listened and nodded at each fact in approval. Mrs. Ford was born Hattie E. Fonda on January 3, 1856 in Saybrook, Ashtabula County, Ohio. Mr. Ford is a native of Russell, Geauga County, Ohio and his birthdate is May 23, 1854. The couple were married in Caro, Mich. on July 3, 1879 where Mrs. Ford was teaching school. Ford came to Cleveland when he was nineteen and got his first and only job at the American Ship Building Company, where he worked for 34 years. He was in charge of the office. The couple has lived at Fenway Hall since 1925, a year after the hotel was opened. Everyone there knows and loves them. Ford is an avid baseball fan and now that he can no longer attend the games he listens to them by radio. Three children were born to the Fords: Mildred, who became Mrs. E. E. Allyne, and is now dead; Charles O. of Detroit and Frank W. of Denver. There are six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The oldest and youngest grandsons are in the service. Captain Rolin F. Allyne is with the army mechanized forces overseas and seaman Eugene F. Ford is with the navy in the Pacific. Cleveland Plain Dealer, Sunday July 2, 1944]
