Mary Ford was the mother of James Ford. When she had an affair with a con man named Tom Sawyer, and provided him with thirty-eight thousand dollars of her husband’s money. Mr. Ford returned to his home one night in a rage-filled state. Fearing he would cause harm to her son, she hid him under his bed confident that he would believe young James was still at his grandparent’s house. As she went to the door to prevent her husband from gaining entry, he eventually broke the door down and killed her when she attempted to call for help.
