Joe-isms
Quotes of Joe T. Ford
Business
Just trying to get few crumbs off a rich man’s table. You compete on price but you win on service.
Always go above and beyond on service. Take care of the little things; the details. Under-commit and over-deliver. At the end of the day, it is about your reputation.
You can’t hoot with the owls at night if you’re going to soar with the eagles in the morning.
You can get anything done with money and manpower. An informed board is a board that makes good decisions.

It sticks with me.
A euphemism when a matter is right and he believes in it.
Communicating
Listen more than you talk.
If you just listen, people will tell you everything about themselves.
All you have to do is listen.
Salesmanship
Always ask for the sale.
Have a pen at all times. How else you going to take the order? Everyone is in sales.
Nothing happens in a company until someone makes a sale.

Golf
Nothing but a chip and a putt. That’s where all the money is. Slow and easy be the power.
The secret to a good swing.
Just outside the circle of friendship.
—If a putt just is just a bit long for a “gimmie.”
That guy will donate $2 million to cancer research
but not a dime to lock-jaw!
—If someone does not give a gimmie when it is very obvious they should.
Come on, come on, pick it up.
—To speed up the game.
Pretty good for a fat old guy.
—After hitting a good shot.
Not bad for a 14-handicap.
—After hitting a good shot.

The Next Chapter
Ithought about calling this chapter the “Conclusion.” After all, that is what one expects to find at the end of a book. But this is not the story of a book—it is the story of a life, and the lives that have touched
mine, and that story (I am happy to say) is ongoing.
I remain passionately involved with Westrock Coffee Company and heavily invested in its success. I believe in the business model and the ethical compass that guides it, and I believe in the people— spanning multiple continents—who are working to provide for themselves and to serve others. To me, the coffee is almost an after- thought; properly understood, it is only the vehicle to do something remarkable for so many people in need.
As someone who has long understood the importance of networks and linking people with each other, I am able to help the company in this way—by fostering relationships and building connections. And, I am having a grand time!
I also continue to enjoy racing our horses and golf. I am honored to be the Vice-Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club, which allows me to spend time with many interesting and accomplished individuals, see some beautifully designed courses, and be part of

an organization that gives millions each year to charities and other worthy causes.
Then there is my family. In addition to my wonderful children and grandchildren, I delight in seeing yet another generation rising up—my great-grandchildren. And the ladies are finally not so outnumbered; although all of my grandchildren were boys, we now have three great-granddaughters in the family. What a joy! Jo and I love to visit them, and all of our family, and we divide our time between Little Rock and Dallas to celebrate important family moments or simply to share a few precious hours together.
My life has been quite a journey so far, and I count myself truly fortunate and blessed. Each fresh chapter of life has brought something important and engaging, something new to be thankful for. What is coming up in the next chapter?
We will just have to wait and see.

Genealogy
FOR HOW CAN YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING IFYOU DO NOT KNOW FROM WHENCE YOU CAME?
Ford Family (Paternal Ancestors)
Note: The following information has been drawn from the book Dr. John Perley Ford (1794 – 1869), His Life and Times, Ancestors, Descendants and Allied Families 1635 – 1994, written by Robert W. Ford.
Perley Ford was born into a wealthy family on December 5, 1794. His grandfather, a highland Scotsman, had migrated from Ireland to America, where he raised tobacco and eleven sons. He
died long before the American Revolution, and at least one of his sons (Perley’s father) then moved to the Shenandoah Valley, in Virginia, where Perley and—twelve years later—his brother Joseph was born. Joseph would go on to become the governor of Illinois.
At the age of seventeen, and against his father’s wishes, Perley married. During the War of 1812, Perley left his wife and their five children in Virginia to join the army.
After the war, Perley went to Philadelphia Medical College and graduated at the head of his class. He then moved to southern

Mississippi, where he began his forty-year medical practice. He entered into his second marriage, this time to a full-blooded Irish girl named Susan Catherine Gallman. After losses on a security debt, he moved to Alabama. In 1832, he then moved to Henry County, Georgia, where all but one of his younger children were born.
TFord Family Name Origins
his ancient name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and it has the distinction of being one of the earliest topographical surnames still in existence.
The name derives from the Olde English, pre-seventh-century word “ford,” which in modern times retains its original meaning: a shallow point in a body of water, generally a river, where people and animals can wade across. The term was used as a topographical name for someone who lived near a ford. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognizable and clearly distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages. In some cases the modern surname may be locational in origin, deriving from one of the many places named with the Olde English “ford,” as above, such as those in Herefordshire, Northumberland, Shropshire, Somerset, and Sussex.
Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of one place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace. In the modern era, the surname can be found recorded in variations such as Ford, Foord, Foard, Forth, and Forder.
The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Bruman de la Forda, dating back to 1066 in the “Book of Winton,”
462 An Ordinary Joe: An Extraordinary Life


from Hampshire (included in the Domesday Book of 1086). This took place during the reign of King William I, also known as “William the Conqueror,” who ruled from 1066 to 1087.
Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England, this was known as the Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to “develop” or evolve, often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
Jonathan Ford (Forde)
onathan is said to have been of Scottish ancestry; he may have been from Somerset, Devon, or Dorset County, England, and was born around 1605.
At age thirty he came to America, and he is identified on a ship’s passenger list as “Jn Ford” of the Hull Company that sailed on March 20, 1635, from Weymouth, England, and arrived in Dorchester, at the Massachusetts Bay Colony, on June 7, 1635.
In many historic documents, first names were abbreviated. Parish records, for example, often abbreviated familiar Christian names. This was done to save space and paper. In some jurisdictions, census enumerators would also abbreviate common first names when going door to door to save time. “Jn” is a common abbreviate form of Jonathan or John.
Jonathan (John) was an indentured servant to the family of Henry Kingman, which came as part of the twenty-one families in Reverend Joseph Hull’s Company.
His son, Andrew, likely joined him. They settled in the town of Wessaguscus, Massachusetts, which became Weymouth later that same year.

RHull Company His•tory
everend Joseph Hull was born in Crewkerne, Somerset, England. On March 20, 1635, he gathered a company of 106 souls and
sailed from the harbor of Weymouth, bound for New England. The company consisted of twenty-one families with no definite desti- nation in mind, preferring to leave the precise spot of their future home to the direction of Providence. After a passage of forty-six days, a fairly easy voyage for transatlantic travel of that period, they reached the coast of New England. Navigating past the verdant islands of a beautiful bay, they sailed by the bustling settlement of Hull, then a harbor for the inner plantations, and after a pleasant sail of about ten miles cast anchor before Governor Winthrop’s infant village of Boston.
Leaving their destination in God’s hands was a major act of faith for the new colonists. Their eyes were familiar only with the highly cultivated fields of old England, and they knew little of the capacities of the soil upon which they now trod, of whose history they knew nothing, and whose outlines they could hardly discern, so thickly were they wooded. There was no lack in quantity of land, but there was a choice in quality and location, and even that was left to Provi- dence. So they sailed down the harbor, passing the many islands that thickly dotted the surface. Entering Fore River, they came to anchor in a small cove about four miles from its mouth, afterward known as Mill Creek, and not far from the spot where Weston’s colony landed thirteen years before. This was on May 6, 1635, and it was not until July 2, 1635, that, with the permission of the General Court, they at
464 An Ordinary Joe: An Extraordinary Life


length settled upon Wessaguscus as their new home.
Governor Winthrop’s Official Journal, under the date of July 8 of
that year, contains the following entry:
“At this court Wessaguscus was made a plantation
and Mr. Hull,
a minister of England, and twenty-one families with him allowed to sit down there.”
The arrival of Hull’s Colony at Wessaguscus greatly increased its population, and the plantation soon blossomed into a full-fledged town, invested with municipal rights, rechristened Weymouth, and allowed representation in the General Court. Here, too, a church was gathered from the members of this company and others from Boston and Dorchester. On July 8, at the age of forty, Rev. Joseph Hull was installed as its first pastor, and on the following September 2 he took the oath as a Freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Some of the Puritans living in the neighborhood, however, looked with disfavor on this church, and it was not long before dissension arose within it.
Wessaguscus, which is present-day Weymouth, Massachusetts, was not wholly a wilderness. Scattered remnants of people from the Weston settlement of 1622 remained upon the ground, along with others who had since come in, so a fair-sized population had gathered within the limits of Wessaguscus. The Gorges company had settled upon the deserted plantations of Thomas Weston’s people in September 1623. This company was wholly broken up in the following spring, yet a number of its immigrants remained and became permanent settlers. These were joined from time to time by single families or small companies, until, upon the arrival of Mr. Hull’s company, the settlement had attained quite respectable proportions. When the Hull company arrived, there were not less

than fifty families present, and perhaps seventy or eighty already residing there. A flourishing colony already established was suffi- cient evidence of good soil, a livable location, and a favorable position for communications with other plantations around the bay, as well as for trade with (or protection from) the native populations. More than this, many of the previous settlers were relatives or friends of the later arrivals. The land had been so generally taken up, and the plantations were so closely connected, that the newcomers were obliged to make their settlement upon territory further south.
There was already religious discord in the community when Mr. Hull and his families arrived, and his group introduced a new element of contention into the already divided community. The newcomers, not in full sympathy with either faction, deemed themselves strong enough and of sufficient importance to have at least an equal voice in the councils of the town. And as there was no existing minister at their coming, and as they brought one ready-made with them, what better could the community do than accept him as minister for all? This at once aroused the opposition of the older settlers, and measures were immediately taken to prevent such a result. Mr. Hull eventually retired from the contest.
Less than a year later, Mr. Hull relinquished his charge as pastor and withdrew when the church called the Rev. Thomas Jenner of Roxbury to be their pastor in his place. His “liberal views” seem to have led to his dismissal from his parish. He now turned his attention to civil affairs, but apparently the spirit of the pioneer was still strong within him, as he received on June 12, 1636, a grant of land in Nantasket, then a part of Hingham. Here he remained for several years and represented that town twice as a deputy in the General Court of Massachusetts in September of 1638 and March of 1639.

Mr. Hull was the political and religious opponent of Gov. John Winthrop, with the “very contentious” Hull apparently siding more with the Anglicans than the Puritan governor. Winthrop eventually expelled Hull from the colony. As a result of their conflict, the authority of the colonial government was gradually extended over the settlement.
The town was reorganized in 1635, and on September 2 the name of the settlement was changed from Wessaguscus to Weymouth—in pleasant memory of the port in Dorset they had so recently left. It was made a plantation with the privilege of a deputy to the General Court. However, because of the three opposing elements, the little town chose three deputies instead of the one to which it was entitled. John Upham (son of Richard Upham) was the selection of the Hull immigrants, yet he eventually retired, leaving the position to William Reade.
On June 12, 1636, a meeting of the town was held to distribute lots among the settlers. It was decided to “lott unto every complete person 6 acres, and to every half passenger under 12 years of age, to have 3 to a head. And the place to begin is at the lower end of the pond and to run 84 Rodd eitherwards to the great plantation lotts.”
The tract selected was situated southerly from Burying Hill (beyond which, to the north, were the larger portion of the older farms), with King Oak Hill for a central point, a beautiful rise overlooking Boston Bay. The temporary habitations of the Weymouth colonists of 1635 were located in the valley lying along its western base, reaching to Burying Hill. Upon the latter were the meeting- house, watchhouse, and the burying-place, while the farms were scattered for a distance to the west, south, and east. The rude shelters first erected were replaced from time to time by more substantial

structures built upon the farms themselves, when the lands had become better improved, and the danger from the native popula- tions less imminent.
John Ford became a Boston merchant in the 1650s and 1660s. He owned a ship known as the “Ketch William” that sailed between Virginia and Boston trading tobacco.
It is most likely that Andrew Ford was the son of Jonathan Ford and joined Jonathan on his journey to America.

It is believed that Perley fought in the War of 1812. Perley was appar- ently wounded by a British cannonade and walked with a limp after this. It is believed he was a school teacher in both Ohio and Indiana. He was a Mason at age twenty-one and very proud of his Masonic service.Sometime in 1824 or early 1825, Perley left his wife and deserted his five surviving children, keeping them a secret most of his life.

Perley had many careers—schoolteacher, cording machinist (a machine to clean wool and cotton), medical practitioner, and cotton farmer.He was also an ardent abolitionist, strongly opposing slavery. He traveled throughout Georgia speaking against secession in late 1860 and early 1861. However, all of Perley’s sons answered the call to defend the Confederacy in the “War of Northern Aggression,” as did many of those who opposed secession. In 1864 the Union troops took most of Perley’s and his son George’s possessions.

Without any horses, oxen, or wagons, which were now being used by General Sherman’s troops, Perley, Susannah, and his grand- children walked to Indiana to find his two southern sons and remove them out of Union prisoner-of-war camps. During the trip he reunited with some of his northern family.

In November 1871, George moved his family to Arkansas, where he was the pastor of Liberty Baptist Church, near Plumerville, then moved to Faulkner County, Arkansas. In 1891 he moved his family to Faulkner County, about ten miles north of Conway. There he farmed and was the pastor to several churches in the area. By 1900 he decided to move to Oklahoma Indian Territory, which was expected to become a new state. Such a move offered new opportunities.

Watson Family (Maternal Ancestors)
The John Watson clan originated in Crossgart, Cumberland, England. Watson moved to Ardristan, County of Carlow, Ireland, around 1658, eventually settling in Kilconnor, County of Carlow.
The first generation to immigrate to America was Samuel Thomas Watson, son of Samuel and Sarah (Carrol). Born on January 23, 1837, near Dublin, Ireland, records show he sailed from Dublin aboard the ship John Toole on December 2, 1850, and arrived in New Orleans on January 22, 1851. Then he transferred and sailed via the steamer Pontiac on January 26 and arrived in Little Rock, Arkansas, on February 4, 1851.
Samuel Webb Watson, son of Samuel Thomas Watson and Sara Webb, married Rose Ann McAnnally in 1877. They had six children, the third oldest being Samuel Webb Watson, Jr., born July 13, 1883, in Faulkner County, Arkansas.
Samuel Webb Watson, Jr., married Ermon Kirkpatrick on November 7, 1903. They had ten children:
